What skills can my child learn through holiday tuition?
Holiday tuition helps empower children to learn good time management skills. The benefits of managing time are simple. Good time management allows you to accomplish bigger results in a shorter period which leads to more time freedom, helps you focus better, allows you to be more productive, lowers your stress and gives you more time to spend with the people that matter most.
With proper management, children can make good use of it. When they take part in holiday tuition; they can have some guidance on how to spend their time - some of it learning or catching up with school work, and the rest taking care of their personal interests.
But what are the benefits of holiday tuition?
Children should enjoy the holidays. However, to ensure that they remain sharp and focused on their education, they have to spend some of their time learning and revising. Often, children with SEND suffer anxiety and low confidence about returning to school or starting at a new school.
Which is why SEND Tutors make learning as fun as possible and the holidays are no exception.
SEND Tutors take immense pride delivering lessons that are tailored to your child’s interests and holiday tuition enables extending your child’s enthusiasm. With so many museums and galleries on offer particularly in London there’s a whole host of interactive exhibitions and multi-sensory experiences that bring learning to life.
Tutors have taken their students for field days at:
The Science Museum
The Natural History Museum
The Tate Modern
The British Museum
The National Gallery
The Victoria and Albert (V&A) Museum
The Design Museum
The Imperial Museum
The British Library
Museums have a great way of breaking down complex topics and making it visual, fun & unforgettable for children. It helps to improve cognitive abilities, develop skills and behaviours, and benefits their health. Whilst being fun and interactive to boot!
Short regular bursts of information are great to ensure what has been taught before is retained. Our SEND Tutors make sure that holiday tuition is delivered in ways that are fun and exciting so that learning is consistently engaging and students are well equipped to start the new year or term.
Can holiday tuition help my child cover more?
Absolutely! SEND Tutors assess from the very beginning, making sure that there are no gaps in the students learning or filling those gaps to move forward. Children who have low self-esteem or suffer a lack of confidence often have difficulties accessing the curriculum. SEND Tutors are here to help, holiday tuition is a perfect time to catch up, learn more and excel.
Why is holiday tuition best carried out at home?
Holiday tuition needs to done in a way that suits the child best so as to maximise attainment as well as build on all their facets. Learning at home in a familiar setting helps mitigate tensions felt at school. Children learn more effectively, it’s more fun, and SEND Tutors make sure that their lessons are tailored so that the child learns about the subjects they like. SEND Tutors can also go at the child’s pace, rather than the child having to go at the class’s pace.
