Is Interventionist Tutoring Exactly What Your Child Needs?
School creates the fondest memories for kids as they grow up. But learning can also be difficult.
Children fall behind in class for all sorts of reasons, ranging from boredom to learning disabilities. And with the onset of COVID-19, learning losses have drastically increased, especially in elementary subjects like math and reading.
Even without a pandemic interrupting their education, many kids require some extra help to cope with school work. Research shows that more than 65% of 4th graders perform below grade level in reading. And this is just one example that explains the growing demand for supplementary education.

In today’s blog, we list the major signs that your child may need extra help with their learning.
Lack Of Confidence
One of the first signs that your child is struggling in school is a loss of confidence. Instead of being enthusiastic about school, they shy away from even the slightest discussion of how the day was.
Other related signs include heading straight to their room after coming home or feeling uneasy when you try to help them with homework.
In such cases, a math and reading tutor can rebuild their confidence in primary subjects by tailoring lessons to their pace and emotional needs.
This one’s easy to identify.
Modern parenting requires that you don’t push kids too much to achieve high grades. That said, you should take notice if your child is consistently performing below average.
Low grades are dangerous because children will continue to pass the subject without taking an interest in the subject or understanding the core concepts. And this becomes a problem as they approach their high school years.
And early intervention can help restore interest in the subject and boost their performance.
Inability To Meet Deadlines
One of the signs that your child needs help with studies is that they take longer to complete homework and find it hard to manage deadlines for school projects. This often happens during the transition to the next grade, and children find it hard to adjust to increased workloads.
Of course, you shouldn’t hire a math or reading tutor just to complete your child’s homework. Instead, seek tutoring to help your child improve study habits and achieve greater control over their schedule.
Finally, learning difficulties can ruin the school experience for any child. They will struggle to keep up with their peers and lose motivation to study in the process.
That is why we only hire tutors who have training and certification in special education. Our teachers have years of experience dealing with learning difficulties and help take the pressure away from trying to keep up with peers.
