Why Adults Need Tutors Too!

Why Adults Need Tutors Too!

Whether you’re feeling unfulfilled at work and need a change in career, you need to add to your skillset to move up the ranks, or you are a stay-at-home parent who wants to return to the workforce, education can be a daunting prospect for adults, but it doesn’t have to be.

When Jennifer Aitken thought about returning to work after eight years at home with her kids, she felt a deep sense of dread. It had been so long since she had worked in an office that she knew she had to brush up on all her computer skills and take a new course to update her qualifications, but the idea of studying was intimidating. “I just didn’t want to face the idea of books, classes and exams, especially with a busy home life,” she says. “I hadn’t written an exam in twenty years, and I didn’t want to fail.”

Don’t let studying or taking a course put you off advancing your career. You have a busy schedule, and finding time to study can be difficult, especially if you are missing some fundamental building blocks in your knowledge. Now many adult learners are turning to tutoring to help them to study more effectively.

One-on-one tutors come to your home, so they work around your schedule. When you receive one-to-one tutoring, your tutor can work at your pace, help you to fill in any missing building blocks and help you to work smarter, not harder.

What kind of a learner are you? Your tutor will help you to find your learning style and show you how to convert information to suit that learning style. This means you will grasp complex concepts faster, retain more information and gain a deeper understanding of your coursework material.

Not only will you catch up to the class in no time, but you will be able to move ahead too and study the subject matter in greater depth.

Tutors are trained to recognise your strengths and weaknesses. They are able to help you to organize your time more effectively so that you have enough time for all the things in your life that require your attention.

Tutor Doctor’s magical match system pairs you with a tutor that suits your academic needs, your schedule and your personality so that you get the most out of every tutoring session.

Whether you need to brush up on your math skills, improve your English or tackle material to pass a course, the tutor will work to your needs, using your curriculum and assignments, exams and other homework to help you to understand the material.

Being able to keep up or even move ahead of the class will bolster your confidence and you will enjoy the professional and personal achievements that a few hours of tutoring a week can accomplish.
