Private tutors for toddlers

Private Tutors For Toddlers

Almost everything young children do in the preschool and kindergarten years supports their emerging language and literacy skills. When children have access to reading and writing materials at home and at their child care , they will incorporate literacy in their play.

 

Many young children explore literacy play on their own, with little need for encouragement from adults. Other children need the one-on-one attention of a tutor to help them make literacy discoveries such as: print is talk written down, reading books is fun and interesting, and printed words carry messages to the reader.

 

Below are some tutoring strategies for working with children in preschool and kindergarten. They include:

 

Reading aloud

Talking with children

Writing with children

These strategies may also be appropriate for older children in an earlier phase of literacy development.

Reading aloud

One of the best ways to encourage emerging literacy is to read aloud with a child as often as possible. If you work with a child in a preschool or kindergarten, spend at least part of each session reading aloud.

Read-aloud sessions involve much more than saying words and turning pages. When you express your own excitement about the pictures, story, setting, and characters, the child will be excited too. With your guidance, the child can learn to take meaning from the words and expand his or her understanding and enjoyment of the story.

Looking for the details in the pictures, talking about what might happen next, and discussing how the story relates to the child’s real-life experiences are important parts of read-aloud sessions.

The following six-point checklist summarizes the key strategies used to read aloud to young children.

  1. Choose a book

 

Look for a book that:

You will enjoy reading.

Supports and builds on the child’s interests and experiences.

Has beautiful pictures.

Is slightly above the child’s current vocabulary level.

Introduces a new style such as poetry or a folk tale.

Invite the child to choose books she would like to read.

Repeat familiar, well-loved books often.

  1. Get to know the book

 

Examine the illustrations so you can point out the information and clues in the pictures.

Read the story to yourself.

Plan ways to vary your voice (tone, volume, pauses) to fit the plot and characters.

Collect dress-up clothes, puppets, or other props related to the story.

  1. Set the stage for success

Help the child get ready to listen.

Make sure the child is comfortable and can see the book.

Make sure you are comfortable.

  1. Before starting the story

Introduce the author and/or illustrator.

Talk about other books you’ve read by the same author and/or illustrator.

Show the cover and point out details in the illustration.

Read the title aloud.

Talk about what type of book it is – true, make-believe, folk tale, realistic.

Describe where and when the story takes place.

Introduce the setting and the main characters.

Suggest things to look and listen for in the story.

Show a few pages and ask: What do you think will happen in this book?

  1. While reading the story

Vary your voice to fit the characters and the plot.

Stop frequently to:

Add information that will help the child understand what’s happening.

Rephrase something that might be confusing.

Explain the meaning of a new word.

Invite the child to predict what might happen next.

Ask the child about the story and characters.

Show the pictures and describe what’s happening.

Share your own reactions to the story and characters.

best home tutors

Professional Home Tutors

The core of personalized learning is built on the expertise of professional home tutors and we consider the below as key qualities a professional home tutor should have;

For the tutoring sessions to be efficient, it is essential that a good relationship be established between the tutor and the student. This is why at City tutors NG, we focus on relationship development with student based learning. Often, this relationship is created quickly, but at other times, it may take a few sessions before the student opens up. The success of this relationship reveals the personalities of each of them, but it also demonstrates the tutor’s pedagogical qualities.

flexibility, adjustability, and versatility)

With individual tutoring, a professional home tutor must adapt yourself to every case. Since there is no pre-determined formula, the professional home tutor’s approach must depend on the student’s need and the particular difficulties he or she experiences. Throughout the sessions, the private tutor will have to re-evaluate the student’s objectives as they progress. It is therefore important not to be afraid of creating a new action plan that will be better adapted to each new situation.

motivation, enthusiasm, and interpersonal skills

In order to establish a good relationship, the tutor must be an energetic person, someone with a lot of enthusiasm with respect to human interactions. This interest will certainly have a positive impact on a child discouraged by school and his or her bad grades. Through his or her good mood and motivation, the tutor will be a model for success, inciting the child to imply himself or herself more and do better at school.

accessibility, availability, involvement, and empathy

Listening to the needs of the child and demonstrating openness will help to better understand a student’s situation. Inquiring about the context (academic situation, environment at school, at home, etc.) allows the adoption of a more appropriate follow-up and the better use of work methods. The tutor’s involvement and presence offers support for a student in trouble and will make the student feel valued. The tutor’s openness must demonstrate their accessibility and involvement. A good tutor must be curious by and interested in the student they are helping.

respect, discernment, and acceptance

Even though we think we have most of the subject matter on the tips of our fingers, it may happen that some concepts escape us. It’s normal, we can’t know everything, and we must be able to recognize this. It is in fact preferable to tell the student that we don’t know the answer rather than guess it. In other situations, where the personalities don’t mix or when the sessions are not producing the desired affect, it is important to take a step back and admit that we may not be the right person to help this student.

In order to benefit fully from a professional tutor, he or she must also have the parents’ trust. Right from the first meeting, we often invite the parents to communicate their expectation with respect to the tutoring sessions, but also to get to know the tutor and understand the nature of his or her work.  This collaboration is beneficial to the success of a student who has been well supervised and has had his efforts well supported. At City tutors NG, we profile our professional home tutors according to specific criteria, allowing us to provide you with quality home tutoring services service!

Steps to Finding an Excellent Tutor for Your Child

Whether your child is lost in a haze of elementary grammar rules, sinking fast in a jumble of Newton’s laws in middle school, or lost in the details of an AP biology class, you need help quickly, before your child falls way behind the class and never recovers. So, what exactly can you do….now?

Many frustrated parents solve this problem by hiring a tutor. However, each family has unique needs, and tutors have many degrees of know-how and suitability. So it is important to know what you want, then thoroughly investigate the skill, experience, commitment and personality of the tutor.

  1. Know your goals

Ask yourself or any of our consultants at the Premier City tutors NG:

  1. What level of help do we need? Does my child need homework help, intensive remediation, or something in between?
  2. What areas do we want to see the tutor improve: better scores in one subject (chemistry, geometry); improved general skills (math, reading, science); study skills; motivation?
  3. What do I know about my child’s learning style? Does he learn best by reading, listening, moving, touching? Does he do better with men or women? Does he need lots of nurturing or a firm hand? What motivates and interests him?
  4. How much time and money can you devote to tutoring? Don’t skimp, but be honest with yourself before you start.

Unfortunately, price is often the determining factor in choosing a tutor. However, it’s more important to look at value. At City tutors NG, we impart value at an affordable rate.

Homework help tutors

Private Homework Help: Nursery to Postgraduate level

Our mastery of helping our vast network of students understand and grasp their school works is unrivalled in excellence and productivity. We do not just help our students to do their homework. We go into the basics and foundation of what was taught in schools. We give the little extra that distinguishes our extraordinary deliver of concepts and curriculum precepts.

Students sometimes need support in all their coursework, not just one subject. Elementary and middle school students in particular can benefit from a tutor who helps them prioritize and plan homework time and complete assignments. Likewise, your child will inevitably encounter tough assignments that leave them confused or frustrated, and a great homework coach will help them tackle those assignments while also fostering self-sufficiency and independent learning skills.

Since our inception, our sole focus has been one-on-one instruction. We believe that every student can benefit from our one-to-one private tuition services, and for all of their hard work, this is the one thing classroom teachers cannot provide. Our tutor will focus exclusively on your child’s learning needs and homework assignments for that day.

The best measure of your child’s academic progress is the report card he or she brings home from school. Unlike learning centers, we measure our success by your child’s grades, and to this end, your tutor will focus on the lessons and material being covered each week at school. The goal is to make sure that your child completes each assignment fully and on-time, and that he or she masters key concepts.

If you’re like most of our clients, your daily and weekly schedule never lets up. And the same is probably true for the rest of your family. In these times of countless after-school activities, parental commitments, and professional obligations, the convenience of an in-home homework help tutor can be an invaluable resource for your child.

One-to-One, Private Homework Help

Flexibility

In class the teacher needs to keep moving whether your child understands the concept or not. Your homework help tutor will work at your child’s pace and will review material until it’s clear that he or she has mastered the concept.

Your Home work

Our focus is your child’s schoolwork, and a key responsibility of our tutors is to help your child complete each night’s homework assignment and understand the concepts involved. This involves discussing concepts, completing extra practice, and finishing all homework assignments.

Result as evidence

Our goal is to help your child earn stronger grades, but equally important, our homework help tutoring will help your child take ownership of his or her learning and become a more successful, independent student.

An Expert Team of Carefully Selected Homework Help Tutors

Exceptional Instructors

Our experienced homework help tutors have degrees (and often advanced degrees) from some of the country’s best colleges and universities.

 

Extensive Teaching/ Tutoring Experience

They’re experienced, passionate teachers, and they know how to engage students and break down difficult concepts.

Thoughtful, Flexible Teaching Styles

Being smart isn’t enough—our tutors are able to listen well and communicate clearly, and they adapt their approach to fit your child.

To be effective, an educational program has to work with your family’s schedule. We make life easier by bringing the tutoring to you through two convenient options:

 

IN HOME HOMEWORK HELP

Our flagship program, which we launched in the late 1990’s, our in-home tutoring option provides you with the unparalleled convenience and personalized attention of a private homework help tutor who will work with your child right at your kitchen table. All lessons are one-to-one, and your instructor will ensure that each session is focused on your child’s homework assignments for the next day.

 

Happy, Successful Students

Students spend 50% of their waking hours at school or doing homework and something that occupies such a large amount of time inevitably plays a big role in their happiness. School is tough—there are social, emotional, and academic challenges.

Ultimately, the end goal of our services is improved performance in school, and that improvement is easily measurable-We believe the best measure of your child’s understanding and progress are his or her grades, and that is how we measure our success with clients.

Yet there is an added benefit—something that is difficult to measure but easy to recognize. It is the sense of accomplishment that comes from working to improve something and seeing positive results. Few smiles are as big as the ones that accompany a strong report card.

Our greatest reward is the positive feedback we get from parents who report their children are now confident and happy in school as a result of our homework help tutoring.

Tutoring Services for Adults

Adult Private tutoring services- Private tutoring for adults

Private tutoring for primary students

Primary School Tutors

Home Tutors for primary school pupils

The beginning  years in a student’s life are quite crucial. The foundation of knowledge they build during primary school will allow them to attain educational success for years to come. At the same time, gaps in this foundation can lead to struggles in comprehension later on, leading to a loss of confidence that creates a downward cycle.

In order to ensure that these building blocks of knowledge are properly constructed, consider hiring a home tutor for your son or daughter. City tutors NG has been working with primary school students over the years, helping over thousands of students in Nigeria attain educational excellence and exceed local and national standards. We are recommended by majority of our past clients—their satisfaction comes from our dedication to each student’s confidence, competence, and learning ability.

Helping Students Meet the Standard

Many children suffer from developmental issues, both minor and severe, that keep them from academic achievement. The private tutors we connect you with have experience helping students with developmental obstacles, as well as those suffering a setback due to a long-term illness. Our approach allows learning to become more efficient without simply adding to your child’s workload.

As a result, we can help our pupils learn faster and more effectively within the same amount of time. This type of improvement is revolutionary, allowing them to grow at a faster pace and meet academic standards every year.

Ensuring Excellence Is Long-Term

Some pupils are naturally gifted from an early age. However, a primary school tutor can benefit them as well! Tuition keeps brains active through school holidays. Tutoring sessions through the summer or winter holidays—just a few hours a week—can keep a student sharpened and prepared for the next term.

why your child needs a tutor

Why Your Child Needs a Tutor?

Perhaps! You do say I need a private tutor or you don’t know why you need a private tutor. Any of our consultant can attend to you anytime you get the following signs that may emphasize your need for a private tutor.

Nornally, when children have increased studies and tight schedules, private tuition can be an effective productive addition to a child’s studies. One-on-one attention from an  expert tutor can do wonders for even an average learner. Although some children do well with a helpful teacher at school and an active parent at home, others can benefit from extra help; below are examples of such situations. Seeking a tutor to circumvent falling grades can build academic success in the future, and your child will enjoy school more as a result.

Slipping Grades

If you believe that your child can do better than he did on his latest report card, or if you’ve noticed a gradual or sudden decline in his test scores, communicate with his teacher about your concerns. The teacher can point out concepts your child is having difficulty with; if your child is good at math but has difficulty with reading, he may have a harder time understanding a math worksheet with a story problem. A teacher can also note when your child’s attention has been drifting, which can indicate that your child has not mastered a topic or lacks focus. Once you’ve pinpointed the problem area or areas, you can take action to improve his grades again.

Not Managing Time Well

If your child puts off projects and postpone hom work, she may not be able to keep up as workloads increase. Although an occasional delay can be expected, consistent procrastination can be a sign of a larger issue, especially if a child ignores repeated reminders. “A parent’s intuition is a powerful thing when it comes to [her] child’s education,” says Joe Morgan, CEO of Noodle Education (noodle.org), a website that helps parents find tutoring and educational opportunities. “If you notice your child struggling, be it [with] a specific subject or a time management issue, or if you suspect there might be a learning disability, there are professionals who can help and parents can be proactive seeking that assistance,” he says. Hiring a tutor can assist your child to improve study habits, cultivate self-motivation, and keep pace with upcoming assignments and tests.

Being Consistently Confused

Sometimes a child is underperforming because he simply doesn’t understand the homework. If he is repeatedly puzzled by certain concepts, he may not be keeping up with grade-level expectations. It can be difficult to discern if your child is confused because the curriculum concepts aren’t clear or if he simply wants to avoid work. But if your child repeatedly expresses anxiety about a test and is defensive when you try to help, a tutor can help him comprehend each subject at the current level to ensure grade advancement.

Lacking Confidence

It is natural to be uncertain when learning a new concept, but it is not constructive when a child is told she isn’t smart enough to do well in school. If your child is feeling blue and saying she can’t keep up, her impulse may be to run and hide rather than ask for help. “When you notice your child getting stuck on certain skills over time, or if your child…would feel great about being a little more confident, [she] could benefit from a tutor,” Goldblatt says. When tutoring is successful, a child will become self-assured and have newfound confidence, which may lead to participation in the classroom.

Decreasing Parental Supervision

When parents take on additional commitments outside of the family, it may be impossible to maintain the same level of homework help they had been providing their child. Also, as a child ages and his workload increases, this could require blocks of study time too large to fit into a family schedule. And sometimes the concepts covered in school or the manner in which they are taught may not be familiar to parents. In any case, it is not always possible for a parent to manage a child’s homework. Tutors can help ease scheduling conflicts within a household. “If you know you aren’t going to have time or energy to help kids with a difficult project, or just plain homework over time, a tutor can be a good idea,” Goldblatt says.

Learning Disabilities

Tutoring sessions are also beneficial for children who have been diagnosed with a learning disorder, such as ADHD, dyslexia, or a visual processing problem. Kids with learning disabilities often have to work harder than their peers to stay on the same academic track. Fortunately, there are tutors who are experienced in teaching children with disabilities, and they can give these children the time and attention needed to master subjects and establish study habits. A specialized tutor can present information in a way that’s easier for a child with a learning disability to understand, which can then make school less difficult and more enjoyable.
