Language Tutor Glasgow
It’s all foreign to me is never so true as when your child starts taking a foreign language, and yet in our increasingly international world speaking a second or third language is a skill that we really can’t afford to let our children miss out on. There are multiple reasons that a child might fall behind the rest of their class in learning Spanish, French, German or any of the languages offered by their school.
Afraid to speak out.
We often laugh at other people’s accents; many comedy shows are built with a character that misspeaks for humorous effect. Now imagine standing up in front of your peers, or even in a small group, and trying to pronounce words that you’ve only ever seen written down.
A tutor can take the time and give them the one to one attention to let them know they’re on the right track. Giving them the time to learn the correct way to say the words as well.
It’s not an easy topic.
Just like any topic languages can be difficult. Yet some schools lump languages in with other core topics and insist that students excel across the board. Yet unless you yourself are fluent in a second language it’s almost impossible for you to give them a helping hand. Time with a tutor can give them a chance to correct mistakes and practise speaking, listening and writing in a supportive atmosphere.
Different style of Learning
For a student with an aptitude for Maths and Science learning languages can be a serious barrier. For a teacher with a class of 30 students it’s unreasonable for them to be expected to be able to adjust their style of teaching to assist a small percentage of the class that is struggling with the very core nature of the subject. With tuition’s one to one nature this allows the tutor to adapt their style and start to reinforce learning in other ways.
The change in the National curriculum throughout the UK means that students are having to learn new topics and exams are being marked to a higher standards, Adding to the pressure students are being put under. The new National 5s were introduced in 2014, followed by the new Highers, and in 2015 the new Advanced Highers. This radical shake up to the National Curriculum and the British education system is one in a line of changes that has added pressure to students. Increasing the risk that a student may miss vital information and need a helping hand to catch up.
Some students may find it boring. It may be that they find it too easy, or that the topics presented are not catching their attention. A tutor can breathe life back into the topic, boost confidence and allow the students to start learning themselves, rather than someone just teaching at them.
Many other subjects can be dealt with by none specialist teachers, although every subject deserves specialist tuition, but none more than languages. These skills can unlock a whole world for your child, and broaden their horizons.

English Tutor Glasgow
Looking for Glasgow English Tutor to help with National 5 or Higher courses?
The written word is becoming ever more important and the world shifts ever further into a digital life. English is far more than just a core subject. It is the way to express abilities, to convey knowledge and to demonstrate who the right candidate is. From getting a job through to attending a prestigious university English is the subject that employers and admissions tutors demand. There is no job that doesn’t require the spoken and written word, but real mastery of the subject opens up the doors to working in website design, media, writing, teaching and so much more.
Written and spoken English are how we apply for jobs, complete exams, fill out applications to university and present ourselves in an email, or even social media. But it’s all too easy to fall into bad habits, and think that the way we’ve always done it is the best way. English tuition can fill in any weak spots and help students prepare for exams as well as putting their best foot forward in life.
Often science teachers and history teachers as well as other subjects that require long question answers in exam situations complain that the students can understand the subject, but is unable to express their answers on the page in the exam.
English tuition can help students learn how to correctly express their answers and gain full marks during exams.
Even if a student has no interest in the subject, or the advantages it can bring in life and other exams a minimum grade is an essential requirement for most jobs and courses. Contact us today to discuss your exact requirements and your child’s needs.
