Does Your Student Have Vacation Time on Their Mind?

As we get close to the end of the academic year, there has never been a better time any student in your home to ‘kick it up a notch’ when it comes to their after-school study. Considering the importance of the upcoming period full of exams and assessments, students need to keep their eye on the ball. From helping students of all learning levels reach their potential, The Tutoring Center, Honolulu HI knows that this time of the year is when many students focus their thoughts and energy on the upcoming vacation period. If this sounds familiar, the below post has some information for you to read on how tutoring in Honolulu, HI can help your student prepare for what’s ahead.

Making the Most of Their Time

When it comes time to sit down for an exam, how well a student has learned and understood a lesson is the most important factor. Of course, this information, as valuable as it is, is only beneficial if the student has sufficient time to write it as their exam response. Too many students attend exams without adequate preparation or without any techniques on how to complete the exam to its fullest. The concern with instances such as this is that the student has learned the knowledge and can be considered quite knowledgeable in the field, they simply just ran out of time. Of course, this results in students returning home with grades significantly lower than those which would represent their true knowledge on the subject. Learning professionals who provide thorough tutoring in Honolulu, HI can impart their exam taking techniques and tips to students in preparation for their upcoming exams. This knowledge includes techniques on how to identify challenging questions quickly and how to identify those which can be answered relatively easily while attracting a solid number of points. The Tutoring Center, Honolulu HI provides subject focused tutoring classes which have been designed to help students of all levels reach their learning potential and feel better prepared to take on exams. Call today at 808 377 5500 to book your free consultation where you and your student can attend and ask as many questions as you like about one-to-one tutoring in Honolulu, HI and how your student can benefit.

Details Matter

As attentive as classroom teachers are, their time is limited. It is because of this limit that many students aren’t given the opportunity to ask the questions they need to grasp a full understanding of each lesson. As you can imagine, a student who progresses through their learning path with incorrect knowledge isn’t going to achieve high marks. Situations like these are perfect for one-on-one tutoring because the time and attention restrictions are removed. Instead, students feel comfortable in an environment which has been designed to encourage and support their learning. The one-to-one nature of these sessions removes any time limits the student has, affording them the opportunity to ask as many questions as they like until they have a full understanding of each lesson and subject.

A Well Written Response

While the majority of an assessor's focus will be on whether or not the information included in the response is accurate, don’t discount points awarded for penmanship, correct grammar, and an expansive vocabulary. When the time comes to complete these assessments and essays, how well a student can differentiate their submissions from those of their peers can be the difference between extra credit or a higher score and a general mark which matches their classmates. When students in a classroom all follow the same learning path, they tend to absorb the same vocabulary items, grammar lessons, and writing techniques. As effective as these may be, it can lead to 30 or more students handing in assignments or essay responses which look similar and use largely the same vocabulary. Dedicated reading and writing programs can give students the additional learning they need to stand out from their peers. By including additional reading and writing lessons into a student's curriculum, environments such as those at The Tutoring Center, Honolulu HI can help students to improve their grammar, increase their vocabulary, and more importantly, identify and nurture their individual writing style.
