Manners and Discipline Topics..

You are here : home > Manners and Discipline > Homework Woes > Tuitions



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 next day.

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 gains.

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 difference.
Children 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.

I am totally not into sending my kid for tuition as I trust Orchids International School in Bangalore where my kid is studying. Learning environment is really great and stimulating for kid to learn and become more creative. I always help my kid when it comes to studies.

it is always better for the parent to sit with the child to get his homework done. this way there is parent-child bonding as well as there is involvement from the parent's side. also, the parent can do his work side by side while he does his work. this way the child also feels important.

this is a very good idea. but in home, the could not adhere the teachings of parents and he/she adhere the private tuition teachers only?

how can we coach the child in home?

i live in the very eriticroatic society where success determines ones future. i have no had a sngle tution in the toughest subjects and i am now off to the us to do medincine. many people told us that tution could push my 99 to a 100. tutions are in my opinion an extra stress on the cild. ultimately , the child will think that for the money that his parents spend that can be up to 60 dollars an hr , he has to do well to make it fruitful. i must say that genius is one percent god given and 99 percent determination. encourage your chiuld there is no better tution .

7. the group who want to push their star grades to brighter levels
2. those who struggle to pass
