Our children might not always realise it, but their education, even primary school education, is incredibly important for them to get a handle on. With a good quality education, our children can make sure that they have the foundations that they need to become a future success.
However, what if they are finding standard education a struggle? What if they need a helping hand to reach their full potential?
To help you to help them, you might want to consider finding a tutor for your child. But how can you ensure that your search is successful and that you find the right helping hand to get them there? James Goldsmith at 11plustutorsinessex.co.uk offers the following advice:
Consider what you want first
The first thing that you should do during a hunt for a tutor is to figure out what it is that you are looking for. Think about what subjects your child is struggling with and could do with some extra support in. As well as their own particular learning style too. Knowing this will make the search a lot easier.
Take your time to research
Finding a tutor means that you need to research into the different options that are open to you, and it is something that you really should take the time to do. There are a variety of ways that you can find a tutor, there are a wealth of tutors out there, so, you are going to want to make sure that you are looking properly and that shouldn’t rush through.
Find out if anyone can recommend a tutor
Whilst you may feel like the only person having to find a tutor, there is actually a good chance that there are plenty of other people out there in the same situation. Some of which could be friends, family, other parents at the school and colleagues. All of whom are trying to find their very own tutors in the local area. Asking for recommendations for which tutors to approach can prove to be a valuable way to source a good option. In the most part because it will ensure that you know you will get the best possible results for your child.
Make an appointment to meet the tutors
Despite finding a tutor online, or being recommended one by a friend, you will never know if they are completely the right fit unless you meet up with them and see how they fit with your child. Make sure that your child feels comfortable working with them and that they are going to increase their confidence.
Remember that it is an investment
It is no secret that hiring a tutor to work with your child can be expensive. However, much like many things for our children, we often don’t care about the expense. Arranging for a tutor to work with your child is an investment. It is a helping hand towards to their future, it offers them the building blocks to a better career.
As you can see, there are plenty of things to think about when it comes to finding a tutor for your child. Why not start your search at the 11 Plus Tutors in Essex?

This is all very good advice. My two younger kids were tutored for the 11+ and my eldest was tutored to help with his writing for his GCSEs – all by the same amazing lady who taught me at primary school. She only charged £10 for an hour, but she really got results. We were so lucky to have her.
Great advice. I will be pinning this. #mixitup
