Goal setting is a vital skill for your child to learn.  Goal setting allows children to become active participants in the learning process, empowering them to become independent learners, and motivating them to achieve their full potential.  The process of setting goals allows children to choose where they want to go in school and what they want to achieve. By identifying this, they know what they have to concentrate on and improve. Goal setting gives students long-term vision and short-term motivation.

Anxiety can show up in countless ways and many children slip under the radar, go untreated, and are often misunderstood by their parents, teachers and peers.  Anxiety disorder can be misunderstood as behavioural issues, cause discomfort, poor academic performance and feelings of inadequacy and unhappiness. 

We all solve problems on a daily basis. Problem solving is not a skill that we are born with – it’s cultivated over time with practise and experience.  Children need to be taught how to identify problems, generate ideas for a solution and then learn to couragously try and solve the problem.  They are faced with decisions and learning opportunities every day during every stage of life. One of the best things we can do is to nurture these opportunities and encourage them to solve problems on their own. Teaching problem solving as a general skill is invaluable to children’s learning, confidence and independence.

Learning styles is a term that refers to different ways in which we learn, process and retain information.  There are many models and theories about learning styles. This particular system about an individual’s learning preference is known as VARK.  It is one of the most widely used categorisations of learning styles. 

When your child is overwhelmed or frustrated by homework, it can have a negative impact on his or her ability to focus and retain information. It can also lead to your child procrastinating on his or her homework (or simply not completing it), creating an ongoing cycle of stress.  Homework and study can actually be a rewarding, satisfying experience if done in an organised and efficient way.  Here are 10 tips on how to achieve that.

When students have trouble reading, it can affect their performance in many subjects. Every subject relies on students having the ability to understand what they're reading and then use the information in a certain way. Poor reading skills and comprehension can lead to frustration, low self-confidence, and poor grades. The good news is with regular practise, reading and with comprehension is something that can be improved. Reading enriches a child's understanding of the world around them and benefits students in all other aspects of learning as they are more readily able to comprehend the materials they encounter.

There are many reasons parents turn to tutoring for their children. Some parents feel that they are unable to help their children with their homework. Others may find their children are more receptive to working through school struggles with another person. Tutoring can help strengthen subject comprehension, improve work and study habits, increase confidence and attitude and build important learning skills. These skills are the building blocks to achieving success in the classroom and beyond. 

We all want our children to do well in school but, despite your best efforts, there may be times when they fall behind. What’s worse, it may be some time before you even notice. When a child or teen begins to struggle with their school work, it is best to get them the help they need as soon as possible. The longer it takes for a student to get help, the more lost they become since the school learning continues forward. So how can you tell if your child is struggling and, if they are, what can you do about it?  

When considering your tutoring needs, there is an abundance of options available. This can be former students offering their knowledge and assistance, accredited tutors freelancing for additional income, or tutoring companies. Here at Full Spectrum Tutoring, we are well aware of the benefits and improved outcomes that are a result of our structured and tailored tutoring programs. However, it doesn’t hurt to have research to support the programming your company offers.

We believe in the ‘whole child’ - Mind and Body. Successful learning is more than just sitting in front of books or computer screens.

That’s why we’ve just introduced our ‘How to be Successful Program’.

Our experience shows that if we build a child’s confidence, we build their success rate across all facets of life.

At Full Spectrum Tutoring we like to ensure our students enjoy their learning experiences. The best way to do this is by trying out new things!
We find that experimenting with outdoor learning can be beneficial for both students and teachers.
