What age should I start tutoring?
For the 11+
To prepare for the 11+ children can start getting a tutor between the ages of 9 and 10. But if you want to prepare the child earlier, the best time to start is usually when they’re 5 years of age. It helps steer the child’s mind to think more strategically and boost their concentration early on.
For customary school exams
However, the ideal age to prep a child for further school assessments is usually between 8 and 11 years old. It’s typically when a child is more mature and can concentrate for longer periods of time, learning through reading comprehension.
The benefits of Early onset teaching
Early onset teaching can be highly effective, especially when it’s the peak time of the child’s cognitive development. Slowly introducing core subject skills and further knowledge helps to develop the intellectual capability and can significantly help them in the future. Boosting their confidence and social skills, allowing them to interact with other children in their class and broaden their knowledge.
Tutors will be able to assess the child’s natural learning abilities and aid them towards a learning style that will allow them to reach their full potential. It gives a chance for the tutor to explore a range of educational activities with the child and see what fits them best and gets them learning through an enjoyable, thought-provoking experience.
