When parents acts as their children's tutors, it's a great advantage because the kids learn things from home that they can use when they go to school. My daughter came home very excited today, she told me that er Science teacher gave her an extra sticker for knowing an answer to the question that they haven't discussed yet. She said when the teacher asked what is the molecule that absorbs sunlight and uses its energy to senthesise carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water, she knows that it was chlorophyll. My husband love Science so he teaches our kids of the things that he learned from school.
That is an advantage that stay at home moms like me has for the kids. When my kids arrive from school, I make sure that they do their homework first before anything else. You can really monitor what needs to be done and do it on time. Not all parents can stay home so the existence of private tutors for every different aspect that children needs is vital in helping their growth in learning. There are VarsityTutors for those who are aspiring to become a varsity member of the school and there are many other tutors that you can hire depending on what help you need.
One thing for sure, parents as tutors of their own children, is always a great advantage!
