Tutoring offers a wide range of opportunities for students in all age groups. From increasing self-esteem and building strong organization skills, to an improvement in academic performance, the benefits and results are substantial.
Students who fall behind on daily assignments, have poor test results, or have problems in a particular subject area will benefit from consistent tutoring sessions to help them achieve better results in the classroom. In tutoring sessions, students receive individual attention, work at their own speed, and are taught according to their individual learning styles.
As a result, students perform better academically, are able to stay on pace in their courses, and experience an increase of confidence in their abilities.
Students who are highly motivated or gifted learners may find themselves feeling disinterested and unchallenged by the standard curriculum. This can result in a lack of engagement in the classroom.
These students can benefit from the guidance and support of a tutor who can help them work ahead in the specific subject area in which they excel. Our tutors can help develop a plan to provide enrichment support for students, so that they can work and learn at a pace that challenges and stimulates them.
Improved Study & Organization Skills
Organization and time management skills do not come naturally to everyone. Many students require help to develop and hone these important capabilities.
In addition to subject support, our tutors provide academic coaching to help students with executive functioning challenges to build good study habits and practice effective learning and planning strategies. These tools will help students achieve academic success in school and support them in their daily lives, as well as set them up for future success in post-secondary education and the workplace.
Test & Exam Preparation
When it comes to test and exam time, many capable students experience anxiety, stress, or even panic that makes it difficult for them to achieve their full potential. While others struggle with the organization and study skills required to adequately prepare in advance.
Our tutors assist students to develop skills to plan ahead, pace their learning, reinforce and review key concepts. Our goal is to help students feel calm, relaxed, and prepared when entering a test-taking environment.
Special Education Strategies
Students identified with learning disabilities and ADHD can benefit from the use of specific strategies and one-on-one support with a caring and patient tutor who understands unique learning styles and academic needs.
Our tutors assist students with their educational challenges and follow IEP and psychoeducational assessment recommendations. With a tailored approach, our intention is to help students with special learning needs achieve an improvement in academic results, as well as an increase in their self-esteem.
Almost every student understands what it is like to struggle with a specific subject in school, and the feelings of self-doubt that accompany it.
When students experience difficulty in school, they often begin to feel discouraged. This in turn can hinder their learning and overall classroom performance. Our tutors are positive role models who work with students to develop personalized tools and strategies for academic success, and to help improve their self-confidence.
Online Tutoring During COVID-19
Teachers on Call is dedicated to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of our students and tutors during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Given the current climate, we have made the decision to offer online tutoring exclusively, with all in-person tutoring on hold for the time being. We will continue to seek guidance from medical experts and will communicate any updates related to the safe resumption of our home tutoring service.
