Understandably as a parent, you would worry for your child’s academic career. And this is probably the reason why you splash out on their school/ college fee. But with this, it is important for you to understand that every child is unique.

Yes they are different, in terms of interests, learning speed, grasping power, and much more. So, even your kid isn’t able to score straight Aces at the moment, you don’t need to panic. All you have to do is look for a right home tutor who can assist with your child’s academic problems and needs appropriately.

A tutor helps you child turn his ‘weaker’ into ‘strong’, and ‘strong’ into ‘stronger’.

For instance, a tutor who takes regular class of an hour spends 30 minutes working on the weaker skill like math. After a break, he starts on a strength-based subject, say reading or sports, for 10 minutes. Finally, concluding the class with 20 minutes of intense work on the weaker subject.

This way, it will be possible to work on both, weaker and stronger sections, altogether. And that too without causing any stress or boredom!

One-on-One Understanding and Learning

Those overcrowded classrooms in Malaysian schools are one big reason which affects your child’s ability to learn. Just think over it- in a class of thirty or more students, is it possible for the class teacher to pay attention to every single child? Or will it be easy for a child to ask over his query in such a crowded environment?

You already know the answer. It is here when a home tutor comes into the play and offers your child personal attention. With one-on-one explanation, he not only understands the concepts fully but also feels free to ask questions. Eliminating the embarrassment, a tutor eases out the struggle of a classroom, enabling better learning every time.

In fact, even in these classes, there is a lot of work to do, such as acquiring reading comprehension, learning mathematical building blocks, and much more. A home tutor can help your kid struggle and master these early skills, laying a strong foundation for the more challenging concepts in future.
