    The emphasis on quality education in the society I grew up in has contributed to my growth and development. To further enhance my academic performance, I participated in after-school programs.  

    What surprised me was that the demand for after-school tutoring programs to provide additional academic support to students beyond regular school hours has increased manifold in so many years.

    The results of such programs are encouraging, as shown by a study conducted by the National Bureau of Economic Research, which showed an improvement in test scores by 0.17 standard deviations for students who participated in after-school tutoring programs. However, after-school tutoring has also been criticized for adding to the pressure on children and causing burnout. 

    Before we assess the impact of after-school tutoring on children, it’s important to consider a study that shows the Global Private Tutoring market was worth US$146.1 billion in 2022 and is projected to reach US$290.8 billion by 2030, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9% between 2022 and 2030.

    After-school tutoring Impact on kids:

    1. Offers Individual Attention and Support

    At supplementary academic support facilities, students receive personalized attention and guidance from teachers or tutors. Private tutoring offers individualized assistance that can enhance students’ comprehension of the subject matter, which is not possible in a typical classroom environment where teachers have to manage the needs of many students.

    2. Improves Academic Performance

    Personalized attention and improved academic performance are co-related. This is because such programs can assist students in comprehending challenging concepts, provide extra practice, and help them review missed topics from class. 

    The additional support and guidance help in resolving doubts and enhancing their understanding of concepts, thus facilitating their learning process. As a result, students achieve better grades and improves their chances of success in any college of their choice.

    3. Boosts Confidence

    When a child struggles with a subject in school, it can lead to a loss of confidence and self-esteem. When students receive personalized attention that addresses their smallest concerns and simplifies complex topics, it enhances their confidence, empowers them to excel in their academic pursuits, and fosters a favorable attitude toward education.

    4. Inculcates Better Study Habits

    To complete tasks on time, students must possess better study habits. Tutoring sessions can teach students study skills, such as time management and organization, which they can apply to their regular schoolwork.

    5. Offers Customized Learning

    Tutors can identify areas of weakness and cater to the specific needs of each student by developing personalized learning plans for them, which can help them overcome their difficulties and improve their academic performance.

    6. Enhances Critical Thinking

    Tutoring can help kids develop critical thinking skills enabling them to work through challenges. These skills come with both short- and long-term benefits. They can apply it for problem-solving in academics to decision-making in real-world situations.

    7. Improved communication skills

    It’s about sharing their doubts and difficulties in learning with the teacher. So, working with a tutor can help kids improve their communication skills and articulate their thoughts more effectively.

    8. Motivates students

    Tutoring can help motivate kids to learn and achieve their academic goals.

    Such learning programs are designed to provide students with various services, including homework help, test preparation, and individualized instruction, offered by various organizations, including schools, community centers, and private tutoring companies.

    Additionally, it provides a safe and supportive environment for students, allowing them to work in small groups or one-on-one with a tutor.  Such individualized attention and support can be beneficial for students who struggle in a traditional classroom setting or who have learning differences.

    How to choose the right after-school tutoring program

    While selecting after-school tutoring, you must consider various things, such as your child’s specific needs and learning preferences. The following tips will help you choose appropriate support for your child.

    1. Research the qualifications and experience of the tutors. Make sure they have both experience and expertise to mentor your child.
    2. Check the program’s track record. Examine their proven track record of success and feedback from parents and students.
    3. Evaluate the program’s structure and schedule. Ensure the program’s schedule and structure fit your family’s schedule and your child’s needs.
    4. The cost is equally important. While cost should not be the only factor in your decision, it is important to find a program that is affordable and provides value for money.

    After-school tutoring can significantly impact a child’s academic performance and personal growth, but it should not be a substitute for regular classroom learning. It can be used as a supplement to classroom learning to provide additional support and guidance to achieve academic goals. 

    It is also important for parents and educators to recognize the importance of a well-rounded education, which includes extracurricular activities and socialization. After all, a happy and well-rounded child is more likely to succeed in the long run.
