4 Reasons Why You Need a Tutor this January
Working with a one-on-one tutor can provide a lot of advantages for a student at any level, and January is a good time of year to start over or get ahead, depending on a student’s current situation concerning their grades. As students receive final grades in each class, some students are getting the news they expected while others may be in for a surprise. Working with a tutor from January through June can help students get back on track or get way ahead of the game – our private Orange County tutors are here to help you succeed.
1. Improve GPA
The first, and perhaps the most obvious reason to start working with a private tutor is to improve grades in each class. If students got some bad news when they received their grade sheet this winter, they could work with their tutor to figure out what went wrong and how they can get back on track. A student might need a specific subject matter explained to them, or they may just need to work on improving study habits. When students start getting extra help with difficult concepts their grades start to improve, and this eventually raises their entire GPA. This might be especially important for students in their sophomore through senior years who are relying on their GPA to help them get into college.
2. Instill a love of learning
Private tutors can also help instill a love of learning in students who find themselves disinterested in school work at this point in the year. There’s lots of dry subject matter that students need to tackle, and tutors can help make it more fun and exciting. They can also help explain the practical applications of assignments that may not have an obvious point. Students may also have lost their love of learning because their stress levels are too high or they feel overwhelmed with the amount of homework they have. Working with a tutor can help make study habits more efficient and help students get things done quicker (READ: Fullerton Math Tutor Tips: How to Make Students Feel Great About Math).
3. Lower frustration levels
Working one-on-one with an expert can also substantially lower a student’s frustration level. Sometimes kids get to a point where they just can’t take anymore, and they turn away from assignments. Tutors can look through a student’s assignments to see what went wrong and what, in particular, the student needs to improve. Knowing what went wrong is half the battle and can make a student’s life a lot easier.
4. Prepare for final exams this Spring
Students who received final test grades that were not as good as they were hoping for can also work with a tutor so they can do better on their exams in the spring. Tutors can look over students’ exams, if available or talk with a student over a period and learn about their learning style and preferences to figure out how to help them improve. Examining a student’s assignments throughout the term can also help a tutor determine how to help them better prepare for final exams this spring.
