Unlocking the Potential: The Benefits of In-Person Tutoring in Improving Literacy and Numeracy Skill
At The Tutoring Hub, we too are concerned about the recent report released by the Commonwealth body investigating economic and social policies, which found that the federal-state school framework in Australia had weak targets for academic achievement and a lack of targeted policies to help children. The report also highlighted that literacy and numeracy results have not seen much improvement despite increased funding and implementation of reforms.
We agree with the commission's recommendation for governments to commit to firm targets to lift student results, as these create a clear direction for reform and make governments accountable. Our experience has shown us that in-person tutoring can be an effective way to provide individualised support and attention to students who may be struggling with literacy and numeracy skills. Tutors can work with students one-on-one to identify their specific needs and tailor their instruction accordingly.
We also understand that teachers are working longer hours than ever before and much of this time is spent on paperwork and other administrative tasks. We believe that effective teaching is the single most influential 'in-school' factor for creating an effective learning environment, and we encourage the government to find ways to reduce the burden on teacher's workload and provide them with more time for activities that make a real difference in the classroom. We also recognise that the pandemic has exacerbated the trend of declining wellbeing in Australian schools, and the report's findings that most students and carers reported negative impacts on children's mental health is a cause for concern. We believe that a more holistic approach is needed to address the mental health and wellbeing of students and teachers, and we urge the government to invest more resources in this area.
In conclusion, as a leading provider of in-person tutoring, we are committed to working with local families and stakeholders to improve the education of local students, providing the support and resources they need to succeed.
