Benefits of 5th Grade English Tutoring at eTutorWorld

One-On-One Tutoring

eTutorWorld offers one-on-one tutoring sessions where a child receives individual attention from trained kindergarten teachers. These teachers are hand-picked for their experience and expertise. All the sessions at eTutorWorld are recorded so that parents and students can revisit topics whenever they want.

Individualized Lesson Plans

Every child learns differently. That is why we create individualized lesson plans after conducting an assessment test. This test is used to gauge a student’s capabilities and learning gaps. The result of this test is used to create a unique lesson plan that can serve the individual learning needs of the child.

Customized Worksheets

After creating an individual lesson plan, we focus on providing unique worksheets to the students. They are also created according to individual learning needs. So, every child gets a different worksheet to practice the same lesson. Surprised? Don’t be. Research has proven that when children receive instructions custom-designed to their level, they perform better as compared to the times they receive standardized instructions.

Flexible Timeline

At eTutorWorld, we understand that young minds are volatile and that is why we offer flexible timelines. We let the child decide the study time. We also offer the flexibility of splitting a one-hour session into two sessions of different subjects. This way, our kindergartners can study when they want and they also get to decide how much. After all, a happy kid learns better than a grumpy one who is forced to sit through an online session
