Give Your Kids a Better Head-start in School

Let’s admit it. Children’s education is tough business these days. It’s a dog eat dog world out there and if you want your children to get a head-start academically, you ought to do more than just send them to school everyday. They have to do more than just revising, and they have to do more than just doing homework given by their teachers. They need to be in a focus group that will help them excel in all the subjects that they take in school.

Apart from encouraging your children to participate in focus groups or study groups after school hours, you can also consider doing something that can help them excel in their studies even more.  This means getting personal tutors for them. Personal tutors will definitely help boost your children’s academic excellence, as they focus on helping your children improve in the subjects that they are weak at.  Moreover, tutors aim to help them understand and sort out whatever qualms they may have about the subjects they take in school.

Private tuitions are much more result-oriented, whereas personal tutors are more concentrated on helping students  actually understand what they are learning instead of just spoon-feeding them with facts so that they can pass their exams.

Employing private tutors for your children can be rather tricky at times, as they are plenty of people out there who  offer tutoring services without having the proper training and qualifications for it, but fret not, there’s always to save the day.

First Tutors is a web-based “find-your-own-tutor” service where you can actually pick the tutors of your choice. They have a long list of tutors on their website who are ready to serve you, and are specialized in all academic levels across a considerable breadth of subjects: from primary school to postgraduate and everything in between.

  1. We recently moved from an area where private tutors were the norm, and the results really showed!

  2. This is a great resource. My daughter is doing ok but as she moves through high school, I suspect she may need it!!! Thanks!

  3. Education is very important. Giving our kids the best resources is smart.

    Education is very important, but so is development in other areas. Tutors are a great idea for a child who needs a bit of extra help.
    Being involved in other activities, such as music and sports and clubs helps children develop in important areas, as well.

  5. Education is very important as it is the pathway to the rest of your life. However, at the same time things have drastically changed since I started school many moons ago. Kids are taught at a much faster pace including in Kindergarten. I also feel that because of all of the pressure on the teachers to teach for the test, kids don’t have much time to be a kid anymore.

  6. I have tried and tried and tried to like running.But, it’s Zumba for me! At least I’m exercising now…pre-zumba, nothing!

    I agree that education is extremely important and becoming more important everyday. While giving your kids the best education sounds wonderful, but the problem is that many parents can not afford to give their kids that “Little Bit Extra” and that just dosn’t seem fair….. I mean why should kids from wealthy or atleast “comfortable” backgrounds be advanced ahead of kids who have just as much ability and desire but live in a home where the parents are struggling to pay the rent or mortgage and tutors are a luxury that they can not afford.

    I am not attacking parents here, l am just pointing out that there are many kids who could excel with further education but miss out through no fault of their own.
