Tutoring helps students succeed. Covid 19 (coronavirus) has forced schools around the world to close classrooms, throwing a monkey wrench in the educational system. According to the World Economic Forum:
“more than 1.2 billion children in 186 countries have been affected by school closures caused by the pandemic.”
Many have turned to remote learning and online courses. New research estimates that by September, 2020, most students would have fallen behind by many months, with some students even losing the equivalent of a full school years’ worth of academic gains. Parents who have been quarantining in the house with their children have struggled to engage with them academically and that is where tutoring services help students succeed.
Tutoring as an essential early-childhood learning tool
Tutoring 101 was founded in 1997, by Tanya Donaghey. “During my time as a teacher, I realized there was a need for tutoring and test prep in Texas and also across the country,” she says. “Starting Tutoring 101 enabled me to further take my expertise in education, strength in talking to parents, and targeted teaching in a way that wasn’t available in a traditional classroom.” Now in their twenty third year of tutoring Donaghey believes that tutoring is more crucial now than ever.
There has been a new surge in tutoring demands and asking for social distancing from children is a challenge. In addition many parents are looking at tutoring to provide daily structure for their children.
Tutoring 101 is responsive to the needs of today’s students. When the pandemic started many companies weren’t able to offer their courses virtually, we have been offering them for several years.
Are your children struggling with remote learning?
The key to identifying red flags is being highly observant of your child’s behavior especially for those in their early years. “The early foundational years from kindergarten through sixth grade is significant. To best support a positive learning environment, look at these three pillars:
- Social belonging, where a student feels a part of the school community and engages regularly with peers and teachers alike.
- Academic rigor, where a student feels like he or she can demonstrate critical thinking and feel like they’re being challenged with engaging courses.
- Emotional stability, where a student feels good about learning and is generally happy to be mentally stimulated.
Tutoring 101 helps students succeed from K-College to College Test Prep, in the Age of Covid 19 and beyond.
When you’re a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you’re not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will ever see it. You’ll know it’s there, so you’re going to use a beautiful piece of wood on the back. –Steve Jobs
For many children struggling it is easier to shut down than address the issues before them. If you notice your child’s anxiety levels growing for whatever reason, whether they’re struggling with their studies or something else, reach out to a specialist. Anxiety and confidence are very much a ying yang proposition. When anxiety is up, confidence is down, and when anxiety is low, confidence is high. And one of the key indicators of a successful student and a happy learner is their confidence.”
