Do private tutors just help you pass exams?

This is one of the biggest myths about private tuition. The idea that tutors ‘coach’ children to robotically pass common entrance, 11+ or finals exams is wide of the mark.

Undoubtedly, achievement is a top priority – judging by the countless parents and students who contact us to thank their tutor for helping them pass, or gain entry into the school of their choice.

Success is certainly wonderful! However, to achieve it, our specialists here at 121 Home Tutors don’t simply pass on knowledge. Tuition involves far more than that…

For instance, parents often ask for help with their child, or young adults approach us because they want to:

  • Restore confidence after a set back or poor exam results
  • Discover new ways to learn or retain information
  • Reignite their enthusiasm for a subject after losing interest
  • Overcome a learning difficulty that’s held them back
  • Improve their attitude to learning following a negative experience

Learning isn’t just about passing exams; it’s about developing life skills, opening doors, enabling young people to believe in themselves.

Also, an often overlooked benefit is the relationship between student and tutor. The one to one nature of tutoring is a special one, all built on trust and good communication.

In fact, we often hear from parents what a difference private tuition has made to their child’s communication skills. And how the relationship with teachers in school and parents at home has transformed as a result.

If you too want to help your child make positive changes, 121 Home Tutors can help. Whether you’re in Stockport, Altrincham, Wilmslow, or anywhere across Cheshire or Manchester, reach us here.
