Did you know that one in five children have problems with learning and attention? If your child struggles in school, you might consider getting them a tutor to help with homework. 

But, is that enough? Often it is not because it does not solve the problem of why your child is struggling.  It simply helps them get through the workload. Specialized tutoring can help your child overcome their obstacles in ways that basic homework help cannot.

Keep reading to learn about why you should look into specialized tutoring for your child.

Homework Tutoring Is Not Enough

Homework tutoring can help improve grades, but it will not help your child develop the skills necessary to deal with the real world. The reason is quite simple: Homework tutoring focuses on getting the work done but not on the root of the learning challenge.

Reading, writing, and math are the three big subjects that homework tutoring focuses on improving. However, for students struggling with these subjects, explicit instruction to improve their challenges will provide the fundamental skills needed for future success in those subjects. Moreover, to help your child progress academically, they need specialized tutoring that helps develop their overall skill level.

Boost Your Child’s Confidence

Many students struggle with confidence in school. They do not feel competent, or like they can learn as others do. Furthermore, that lack of confidence can cause problems in school and later in life. That is why specialized tutoring can be so important. When your child is in a one-on-one environment, they get the attention they need to improve their confidence in their learning. That confidence boost can help them build their skills and learn to succeed in school and beyond.

Cater to Individual Learning Experiences

Every child learns differently. What works for one child might not work for another. In the classroom, teachers do not have time to cater to every student’s learning style. This can make it harder for all students to succeed, especially students who are struggling in reading, writing, or math.

To help your child succeed, you can engage tutors that specialize in helping your child learn in the method that works best for them. This is essential if your child has a learning disability such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, or ADHD. Specialized tutors are trained to help students understand their learning differences and work to teach the fundamental skills missed in school.

Change Your Child’s Attitude Towards School and Learning

Every student has a different attitude towards school. Some students love learning and are happy to go to school. Others hate it! Sometimes, the student’s attitude is not the fault of the student.

Learning can be stressful. There are a lot of responsibilities and pressures put on students to succeed. When your child engages in tutoring to improve their skills, they can become more confident in themselves and their abilities.

The more confident a child feels, the better their attitude towards school and the more motivated they become to learn. Whatever the attitude is towards school, specialized tutoring can help them improve to be more successful because they are taught the way they need to learn in a 1:1 setting designed for them.

Improve Academic Performance and Test Scores

Many students have difficulty with standardized tests. Your child can improve their test scores and academic performance with specialized tutoring. When working with tutors, your child will learn the skills they need to successfully approach standardized testing.


Tutoring will also enable your child to be more confident in themselves and their abilities. Both of which will help your child perform better on standardized tests.

When your child improves their scores, it improves their attitude, and willingness to learn and helps them earn better grades in school. Better grades could help them get accepted into better schools and earn college scholarships.

Develop Long-Lasting Study Habits

For some kids, learning seems to come naturally. Others need help to overcome their challenges.

If your child struggles, specialized tutoring can help improve their reading, writing, and math skills to build their confidence and improve their learning outcome at school.
