The Benefits of Tutoring from Optiminds

July 16, 2015

tutoring1Often it is enough for most students to do well in school with a helpful teacher and an active parent at home. But sometimes, children can benefit from the one-on-one attention that comes from tutoring.

Here are some instances when individualized teaching can be a productive addition to a child’s studies:

  • your child’s grades and/or test scores seem to be gradually declining
  • your child has increased studies and busy family schedules
  • your child is having difficulty with a specific subject
  • your child consistently puts off projects and postpones homework

Your child could be experiencing anything from anxiety, to time management issues to a learning disability.

It may be time to look into an Optiminds tutoring program to help your student sharpen their brain this summer. Optiminds has earned a reputation for helping students of all ages improve study, reading, math and cognitive skills.

Here are just a few of the many benefits of enlisting an Optiminds tutor:

Optiminds Offers Customized Tutoring Programs

February 23, 2015

BoyManTutor3Optiminds specializes in customized tutoring programs for students of all ages. Based on a student’s unique requirements, these programs include brain fitness exercises designed to help improve cognitive skills and concentration.

If your child has a learning disability or needs to improve math or reading abilities—and even if he or she is getting good grades—tutoring can provide a powerful supplement to a child’s education.

If your child is struggling in school or has a learning disability, tutoring can help your student with their homework and with test preparation. A little extra one-on-one attention from the right tutor might be just the thing your child needs to learn or relearn important foundational material, or to reignite a spark for learning if your child is less than motivated.

While the obvious reason for seeking a tutor for your child is to help improve grades, tutoring can also help your child develop more effective study habits, including organization, creating a productive study space at home and using time effectively. Even if your child is doing well in school, tutoring can help him or her move ahead to more challenging material outside of the school’s curricula.

Sometimes children resist a parent’s well intentioned efforts to tutor them. With a tutor, the student gets an outsider’s perspective on material, which may be easier for the student to accept. Also, because most tutoring takes place outside of the classroom, it provides a less threatening environment that is more conducive to learning. For example, students who are quiet in the classroom are more likely to ask questions when working one-on-one with a tutor.

A good tutoring program grows with the student. Some children will need occasional tutoring after their grades improve and others may need extra help throughout their school career.

In addition to tutoring, Optiminds offers parent coaching and parenting programs designed to instruct parents on how to handle their child’s behavioral or educational issues. Giving parents the tools they need to make positive strides in their relationships as well as tools to steer their child in positive directions.
