Close attention: Private tutoring gives additional support and confidence to many students,
enhancing work done at school.
By JEFF LILLY
Our schools do wonderful work, often under
trying conditions, and strive to develop the
potential within each child.
Children are individuals with differing
abilities, aptitudes, learning styles and growth
They are not, as the old Pink Floyd song
says, ''just another brick in the wall''.
Sometimes parents feel it will enhance their
child's development, especially in a specific
area, to provide tutoring outside the school
This is not any criticism of a particular
school's performance; more an adjunct or an
extension; an opportunity to provide one-one-
New Zealand tutoring associations explain
that the reasons parents use home tutors to
provide private tuition are to help a child who
has fallen behind, to learn other subjects
outside school, to take their child's abilities
further than they would in a class of 30 or to
give their child more attention than is possible
in a classroom.
Private tuition from a home tutor can raise
the levels of a child's school performance, help
them to increase their confidence or give
them motivation or enjoyment in a subject.
Older children often seek tutoring for a
range of reasons such as: examination
preparation, extension and enrichment work,
additional support when in a competitive
environment in order to achieve top results
and those low achieving students needing
extra help in areas they find difficult.
When the Australian Tutoring Association
conducted a consumer survey it was found
that there was a spike in the use of tuition at
ages 10 and 11 years and a second spike at
ages 16 and 17 years, and 21 per cent of
parents spent more than $91 each week on
tuition. It was also clear that parents wanted
schools to work with private tutors.
How should we judge whether a child needs
extra tuition? It may be that your child has
sustained difficulties in a specific area and is
experiencing great discomfort and worry
Certainly some extra help will boost self-
esteem and will serve to augment the efforts
being made at school.
There are many options in your area and it
is best to talk to your child's school for
There is the well-established Kip McGrath
Education franchise which has presences in
Rangiora, Darfield, Kaiapoi and Rolleston for
example, and they say that ''the real value in
attending a Kip McGrath Education Centre is
the teachers that tutor at each centre''.
It is important to focus on the quality of the
Less formal options include university
students who are competent in their fields and
have the advantage of being closer in age to
those they tutor.
Then there are retired teachers who are
more than happy to impart time-worn skills to
students without all of the hassles of running
If your child needs an extra boost,
thoroughly check out the options, talk to your
school and ensure that your child is
comfortable with your choice.
