The benefits of tutoring can differ from student to student, depending on what their areas for improvement are, and how they learn. But on the whole, there are very common benefits that most students will get from tutoring.
Communicating online, whether this is for work or education purposes, has become so much more common since the covid-19 pandemic. It provided a way of communicating with others safely. Many teachers had to adapt to this way of learning, and so in turn did the students have to adapt to this way of learning.
Whether your child is having extra tutoring to help with their understanding of GCSE Biology, or to help them prepare for a piano exam, they will require general support from parents or guardians. This may not be so obvious, as the tutor is providing the tuition they require. But, having extra support will enable the student to get the most out of the sessions, allowing them to develop and progress.
Choosing a tutor for yourself, or your child is an important decision. They are imparting their knowledge and expertise on a 1-to-1 basis, and therefore spending time in a more personalised learning space. For some, this means that finding the right tutor, and therefore the right personality is the most important aspect. But for others, the most important thing is having a tutor with specific experience in teaching, and certain qualifications.
Having the opportunity to learn from a tutor in a 1-to-1 environment is such a great chance to learn and progress skills. Tutors are experts in their field, therefore they can provide help, support, and the ability to fill any gaps in knowledge. However, like with most services, it’s always a 2-way street, and the best results come from working together to reach a common goal.
We all know that to be skilled at anything, you have to practice. When we start learning a skill - in this case a musical instrument - we have never-ending enthusiasm and resolve. Then something else becomes a priority and our good intentions go to pot. In short, life gets in the way.
I played in a youth orchestra as a child. It was great fun and very important to my development. I'm now a music tutor and encourage my students to play in a group. Some are quite nervous about playing with other people. To address this, I have written down the ways I benefited from playing in an ensemble.
Reading and writing music starts with the Stave, also known as the Staff. The stave is five lines stacked on top of each other. We draw notes on the stave and the height of the note decides how high it will sound: if the note is high on the Stave it will be a high note, and vice versa. This is also known as the Pitch of the note.
You'd be forgiven for thinking that music looks like intimidating gibberish. This blog post will explain the basics of reading music, focussing in on notes: what they are, the different shapes and sizes, and why they move up and down the stave.
It's important to consider the variety of musical instruments before we talk about clefs. Some instruments have a high pitch range, such as the Violin, Trumpet and Flute. Other instruments have a low pitch range, including the Cello, Trombone and Bassoon. Then we have instrument with an extreme pitch range, such as the Piccolo that is capable of playing a D five octaves above middle C, and the Sousaphone (from the Brass family) that can play an F four octaves below middle C. There is also the Piano, which has a very wide pitch range and can play both low and high pitches.
