Laser Experiments You Can Share With Your Homeschool Kids

If you have ever had a child who is doing badly in school then you know how heart breaking and stressful it can be. One of the best ways to get your child to do better is to find a good tutor. These are people who will help teach your child the information they need to know.

Most tutors in South Carolina will work with your child in a one on one environment. This is better than a classroom because it means the teacher is only focused on the learning and development of one student. This helps the student absorb more information about their subjects.

There are two basic kinds of tutors. The first kind or tutor is home tutors. These people will usually come to your home and bring what they need to teach your child with them. This is great if you can’t leave your house or need to go out. Some of these tutors will help “baby-sit” your child and tutor them at the same time. This is a great service for parents who need to leave the home.

The more common tutor is those you must go out to see. The nice thing about this is the tutor usually will have more supplies at their work and will be able to give your child more help.

Bowling Green Tutoring: The Help Your Child Needs!

The tutoring market is enjoying rapid growth across the spectrum of subjects and levels of education in Australia. Currently, according to Standards Australia, about 25% of Australia's 4 million students receive supplementary private tutoring every year. This number continues to grow as parents all over the world are recognising the importance of education in the increasingly competitive employment industry.

There is also an international trend toward supplementary education. Struggling students in conventional classrooms right through to brilliant students who do not feel challenged enough at school are taking up private tutoring. Many parents of average students want to maximise their child's educational opportunities and encourage a deeper interest in school subjects.

The rise in identification of psychological disorders such as ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) and Aspergers Syndrome has also driven the home tutoring market upwards with schools unable to provide the necessary one-on-one attention these students need to perform well in school. The increasing population and the burden that places on the educational system results inevitably in larger class sizes with typical classes having over 30 students. Amazing results can be achieved by choosing the right private tutor for a child that is struggling at school.

The credit crunch doesn't seem to have slowed demand for home tutoring services. A child's education is perceived as an essential investment by many parents, who are willing to sacrifice spending on commercial goods and luxury items before cutting back on home tutoring expenses. Time will tell if this trend continues but for now home tutoring seems to be bucking the trend in the current global economic downturn. The number of people working as home tutors seems set to soar as people are made redundant or have their hours cut back and turn to alternative ways to make money. We're predicting that freelance tutors and home based services will balloon over the next few years as more and more people seek out additional revenue streams.

Most parents have little knowledge of what to look for in a tutor and so tend to rely on recommendation and reputation when making decisions regarding their child's education. It can be a slow process building up a client base from scratch as a private tutor as so many people use word-of-mouth and trusted referrals to find a local tutor. Many tutors are turning to agencies to find clients which can act as a win-win with parents who prefer to have the buffer of a management company along with the assurance of child safety checks and reference checks.

Tutoring Qualifications

Required level of qualification for Tutoring

Quality of teaching is not always directly related to the level of education. Some subjects of
course will require a good understanding of the curriculum, but there is no reason to believe
that the higher the education the tutor has, the better at tutoring they are.

For argument's sake, let us use an example of GCSE Biology. A PhD student in biology may be
able to teach Biology very well, but this is not to say a tutor with only an A-level in biology
will be any worse/better at teaching GCSE students.

It's not the level of qualification that makes you a good tutor, but your ability to teach the
subject. Having a deeper knowledge of the subject from further education can be an advantage,
but it can also be considered a hindrance when one considers how long the education takes.
A beginner tutor with a PhD in biology may not even remember doing their GSCEs, while the
GCSE syllabus is likely to have moved on since they were taught the subject at GCSE level.
It might be more appropriate for the PhD student to tutor under graduates and A-level students.

There are several minimum requirements we would suggest when considering what tuition level
you should be tutoring. For academic subjects, the tutor should at least have a bear minimum
qualification in the subject they are teaching. However, we would advise at least to have one
further level up, preferably 2 levels of qualifications upwards. For example GCSE students
of Mathematics should be taught by tutors that hold a good grade in Maths A-Level or
Mathematics degree level.

These requirements are not by any means a rigid mould, merely a suggestion. It might be that
some tutors are better suited to teach older individuals and other tutors have methods that
better apply to younger students, regardless of their educational background.

More importantly than an advanced education is enthusiasm for the subject and Enthusiasm for
tutoring, but that's for our next tuition article:
