How Can Your Child Prepare For The Next Academic Year?

It is every parent’s ultimate dream to provide the best possible education for their child. Parents do their due diligence in choosing the best school and choosing the best tuition teachers to guide their child, right from the beginning. For every academic year, the content being taught will be explored in greater depth and for most subjects, there will be new topics being added on.

Children would not be able to anticipate what awaits them. However, tuition teachers and school teachers would be able to tell what is in stock for every academic year. Parents would often be clueless as to how to guide their children along the way. Since parents are not skilled in the area of teaching (unless they are teachers themselves), they would only be able to teach or guide up till a certain academic level. Further down the road, the help of an actual tutor is needed.

So, here’s how your child can prepare for subsequent academic years!


An expert guidance from the beginning will help to nip many problems at their bud. Children will not be able to assess their own learning capacity. Parents are not as equipped (nor do they have the time and energy!) to carefully sit and analyse their child’s learning needs too. Every child is unique and has his or her own set of strengths and weaknesses.

Some children may be visual learners while others might just need to listen to a tutor explain the concepts out loud. Tutors will alter their teaching techniques to suit the needs of each student accordingly.

Private tuition teachers also have the luxury of time to talk to their students one-on-one, inquiring them compassionately about the insecurities associated with learning. Often times students will not know how to voice them out. However, an excellent tutor will get the right words out and help their students in every way possible.


There is an apprehension about what each subject might have in store for the years ahead. Looking at it as a whole can be a little scary. It is important to break down and see how each subject is carried forward and expanded to explain the complex concepts. Many topics may seem challenging as they may be newly introduced and it may seem intimidating.

For example, students may be taken aback the first time they come across Algebra. However, once math tutors help students master the basics of Algebra, students will soon realise that is the key to solving many mathematical problems.


Teaching children to be excited to learn new things is an effective tactic. Instead of fearing the arrival of new topics, subjects, and concepts in each academic year, children need to be excited that they will be learning new things. Although students may fear those subjects in which they generally have a hard time with, tutors are always there to reassure them and guide. 

It is absolutely important to enjoy learning and to have an optimistic attitude throughout one’s academic journey; that is the only way to succeed!


Along the way, students might have a new found love for certain subjects or even a particular topic of a subject. When concepts are being taught in greater depth with each subsequent academic year, students get to explore more and more about what interests them.

Some students might find out that they have a knack for language and literature while others might realise that they love learning about the human body. Each child is unique and they will only figure out their interests at their own pace.


When parents and tutors are able to identify student’s weaknesses at an early stage, it will be much easier for everyone to work together and come up with some solutions to tackle them. For example, some students may struggle with writing a good essay due to problems with sentence structure and a weak vocabulary bank.

When this is identified early, English tutors and parents can figure out how such problems can be avoided (and made sure that it doesn’t get worse) for the following academic years because the going will only get tougher!
