Are you considering tuitions for your child? It could be very beneficial if you go about it in the right manner.
Often we hear of young children taking tuitions in far too many subjects than required. One finds that more than any other reason, a parent feels that this way at least the child will be forced to focus on a particular subject. He will revise it, and complete any homework. Without tuitions, the child may not be disciplined enough to sit down, revise what he has been taught at school, or complete his homework. As a result, his final grades suffer.
Although parents and teachers alike frown at the concept of tuitions, one has to remember that unless you send your child to too many tuitions, it really doesn't mean that you are burdening your child too much.
School is fun!
Many children have a rollicking good time in school. They fool around during class, pay no attention to what the teacher is saying, and play around with friends in school during the breaks. After this, they come home with homework that shouldn't take them more than a couple of hours a day. Of course, many children leave their homework
undone until the last minute, and then they either stay up late doing
it, or don't do it at all and just copy everything from friends the
Don't pay attention to what others say
So it really doesn't matter if you start your child on
tuitions when they are a little younger. If you think it is right for
your child, don't let other parents discourage you from doing so. The
decision should be solely yours and your child's. Janam and Rita were
both wondering if they should start tuitions for their 11-year-old
daughters. Their friends discouraged them saying the children
are too young and will be overburdened, and Janam dropped the idea,
while Rita enrolled her child for Math tuitions. The result? There was
a marked improvement in Rita's child's grades, and the Math tuitions
were held for just one hour, twice a week. A small sacrifice, for large
It's all about revision
The best part about tuitions is that your child gets to revise what he did in school,
and as a result the subject matter gets firmly entrenched in his mind.
If your child is strong in studies or is disciplined and revises his
schoolwork on a daily basis, you don't need to send him for extra
coaching at a young age. But if you feel his grades need a push, you
could always try sending him for tuitions and see if it makes a
that don't pay attention in class often have no idea as to what has
been covered, much less understand the subject. What they then do is
start cramming a month before the exams and manage to get through.
Limit the burden
Your child's grades may not be very bad, but if you feel
that your child is intelligent and will do much better only if he were
more hardworking, you could consider getting tuitions for him. Don't
overburden him, and fix up no more than one tuition a day at the most.
Also, if your child is below the 8th standard, request the tuition
teacher not to give your child any homework.
