Do you Need a Tutor?

Getting a tutor at the beginning of the school term will ensure that you don’t fall too far behind. If you think you may be in trouble, read on.

1. Bad test scores:

Bad grades are the obvious sign that you need assistance. Before you get a tutor, ask yourself if it was just a bad test and if you prepared enough. Be honest with yourself. More than one bad grade should set your alarms bells ringing. Don’t fool yourself that your test scores will get better in the future. Ask for help before it’s too late.

2. Ants in your pants:

Do you feel anxious when you think about school? Do you feel confused or upset? If you feel you are not coping with your workload, get help. Don’t lose sleep over your schoolwork; take action while you still have time to catch up. A tutor can explain things that you don’t understand, create a realistic work schedule for you and organize your study time.

3. Can’t keep up:

If you can’t keep up with the pace of the class, it may be too fast for you. If you have missed some vital building blocks along the way, you may not understand what your teacher is talking about. Tutors will help to fill in the gaps in your understanding. They can work at a pace you feel comfortable with and ensure that you understand the basics before moving on to more complex ideas.

4. Writing is difficult for you:

Writing is difficult for everyone. Getting your grammar, sentence structure and spelling right while trying to communicate your thoughts can be tough. Don’t let bad writing bring your grades down. Get a tutor to help you to effectively communicate your thoughts. A well written assignment can mean the difference between the grade you’re getting and the grade you want.

5. You’re bored:

Some classes move too slowly. Getting bored is dangerous as you stop paying attention and miss vital information. Even if you manage to stay focused, the class may not be helping to fulfill your potential. Getting a tutor can open new challenges for you. Don’t let a year go by without adding to your abilities; get a tutor to help you grow.

6. Homework takes forever:

Do you get the yips every time you look at your homework? Not knowing where to start or feeling overwhelmed by the amount of work you have to do is a strong indication that you are not coping. Spending too much time on homework means that you don’t have a good grasp of the information being taught. Tutors will help you to manage your workload more effectively. Ask your tutor to work with you when you are doing your homework so that they can help you to be more efficient with your time.
