When children are struggling in school, parents typically seek out additional help. Some parents are willing to spend a lot of money on private tutoring but often fail to see the results they were expecting. Why is this?
Unfortunately, all the elite tutoring in the world won’t help a student who has not yet learned how to learn. While one-on-one tutoring and group learning are equally valuable, they do not always translate into independent learning—a skill that becomes increasingly important the further you go up the academic ladder.
Student coaching works, because it gets to the root cause of the issue. When a student understands their unique learning style and how to use it, they’re able to absorb new information. Once this happens, tutors can begin filling in learning gaps for good.
