If you don\’t understand these two points, giving extra classes to your children will only waste money.

The holidays are about to begin, and many parents have begun to put tutoring for their children on their agenda. But to be honest, spending money to tutor children is also a skill. Learning is never an exchange of equal value. If you spend money, you can definitely buy results. Before making up a lesson, you must understand the following two questions so that you can be targeted. Otherwise, you may spend money and waste time, but not achieve the desired effect, or even be counterproductive. The first question is to find out whether the child needs extra classes. There is no doubt that not every child needs tutoring. For example, some media surveyed 21 college entrance examination top scorers in 2015 and found that more than 90% had not participated in any subject tutoring before school, and only 14% had attended tutoring classes during winter and summer vacations. 33% of the top scorers have learned Mathematical Olympiad, but they said “don’t learn it if you are not interested”. Real academic masters do not need to take extra classes. They generally have strong self-study ability and a relatively comprehensive grasp of knowledge, and do not need to attend so-called cram schools. Even for some children whose grades are not outstanding, many are just because of poor study habits and incorrect study methods. At this time, what needs to be corrected is his study habits and methods, rather than asking him to make up lessons outside. Otherwise, making up lessons during the holidays will only become a continuation of school learning, and the original low efficiency will still be maintained, without the desired results. The second question is to figure out how the child needs to make up for the lessons. Even if tutoring is provided, not all children are suitable for the same tutoring classes. There are various tutoring classes in society now, but not just enrolling in any class is suitable for your child, nor is the more expensive the better. Parents should choose tutoring classes for their children based on their actual situation. One is a child with super abilities. For these children, the little knowledge they learned in school is not enough for them, so there is no need to attend ordinary cram schools. If you want to make up for extra lessons, you can let your children participate in Olympiad events or interest classes for cultural and sports specialties to broaden their horizons and expand their knowledge. The second is children with poor grades. There are blind spots in the knowledge of these children. They need to check and fill in their gaps during vacations. They are not suitable for attending cram schools with large classes because the teachers are one-to-many and do not have the energy to take care of every child. If conditions permit, one-on-one tutoring can be adopted and a teacher can be asked to provide dedicated tutoring. There is a trick here, which is to let the children find out their own questions and knowledge blind spots in advance, and ask the teacher with questions instead of asking the teacher to explain it to them in general. Tutoring in the form of questions and answers can make the most efficient use of the tutor\’s time, which can not only improve learning efficiency, but also save tutoring costs in disguise. Moreover, the process of children looking for problems is also a process of sorting out knowledge points, which is of great benefit to building their own knowledge system. The third is children with average academic performance. The results of these children in various subjects are not good but not satisfactory. For these children, both review and preview should be considered. First of all, you need to attend a review-type tutoring class, go over the knowledge you just learned with the teacher, and lay a solid foundation. Then participate in a pre-study tutoring class to preview the new knowledge that will be learned in the next semester, which will help to master the next step of knowledge and also build children\’s confidence in learning.confidence. The fourth is children with poor abilities. In the past semester, these children could not understand most of the content taught by the teacher and did not master a lot of knowledge. They were in a \”full\” situation. Take advantage of the vacation time and quickly ask the teacher to carefully sort out the old knowledge and digest it, so that you will not be unable to keep up with the team in the next stage of study. What needs to be emphasized is that many parents now have a mentality of spending money to buy peace of mind. I feel that my child\’s grades are not good, so I spend money to enroll him in a tutoring class. No matter how bad his grades are, it is not my responsibility. This understanding is wrong. Even if your child attends tutoring classes, you still need to pay attention to the child\’s interests and have strong planning to make the child love learning, want to learn, and know how to learn. The purpose of enrolling our children in tutoring classes is to help them learn to learn and develop good study habits, so that they will eventually no longer need to attend tutoring classes. After all, there will be no tutoring classes after going to college. And no one can guide us forever in our lives.
