Learning is a continuous process that does not necessarily have to end with school hours. While schools try to cover as much as they can, continuing the learning process at home is a great way to address important topics that fall through the sieve. Today, with the number of resources available on the internet, home tutoring and online classes have become a popular method of reinforcing children’s learning from school. Home learning can help children in many ways. Let’s look at some of them.
Reinforces their learning
Learning at school sets the basic foundation and familiarises students with their syllabus. Home tutoring reinforces what they have already studied. By following up with the latest discussed topics at school, home learning can double down on their scholastic learning. Online education platforms like BYJU’S – The Learning App not only help reinforce your children’s learning but also provide illustrative visual cues and effective learning material that makes it easier for your child to retain what is learned.
A more holistic learning experience
Home tutoring does not only include reinforcing scholastic learning, but also provides the opportunity to teach children important life skills – such as communication, interpersonal skills, as well as self-esteem and responsibility. These are aspects that are not always given as much importance at school and home can be a great environment to sharpen these skills. Learning these skills along with their academic coursework leads to the all-round development of children, and makes them ready for the world.
Reduces boredom and boosts productivity
Half the role of homework is to provide children with something productive to do at home instead of leaving them with empty time on their hands. Home tuitions fill up the free time in your children’s schedule and prevent them from losing focus. By sticking to a timetable and staying on top of their tasks regularly, home tuitions keep your children on their toes and make sure they stay productive.
Allows children to learn at their own pace
With the choice to pick and choose areas of study, home learning encourages children to learn at their own pace without the pressure of keeping up with the rest of the class. This allows children to focus more on topics they struggle with and further strengthen what they’re already good at. Home tutoring allows a certain amount of flexibility, which children can take advantage of to divide proportionate amounts of time and effort into each topic.
Makes learning an integral part of daily life
By building an atmosphere conducive to learning at home, you are blurring the lines between learning and everyday activities. Instilling this sense of curiosity and wonder is important as it teaches children to keep questioning until they are satisfied with the right answers. Home tuitions are a great opportunity to instil that outlook in your children.
A lot of children wince when they hear the phrase home tuitions. But learning from home does not have to be a drag as it is often imagined to be. When handled right, keeping some of the above-mentioned points in mind, the home learning process can broaden the scope of your child’s learning and can also double up as something fun that your child looks forward to.
