How can a tutor help you prepare for the NAPLAN Test?

Every year in May, students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 sit the NAPLAN test in literacy and numeracy. The NAPLAN test identifies whether students have the literacy and numeracy skills that provide the foundation for their learning and for their progress through school and life. So, it really is important that your child does well in these tests! Many parents have chosen to find a private tutor to help their child prepare for the NAPLAN test. How can a tutor do so?

Tailored lessons to help you get the best NAPLAN results

No two students are the same, so why should they have to go through the same NAPLAN tutoring course? That’s what most students get when they attend other tutoring companies, which might have as many as 20 students attending one class. However, at Australian Tutoring Company, all our tutors focus on providing a truly individualised, one-on-one service.

Our experienced tutors guide students through the different sections of the NAPLAN test and hone in on the areas which the students are having difficulty in. There are no rigid lesson plans and students can be sure that they will understand the content so much clearer than if they attended a class.

Take you through NAPLAN practice tests

One of the best ways a private tutor can help students with preparing for the test is to take them through past NAPLAN papers or sample NAPLAN questions. This will allow students to familiarise themselves with the style of questions that will be asked, making it more comfortable for them when the time comes for the actual test. In addition, they can get used to the difficulty level.

Of course, a tutor shouldn’t just give the student some questions, mark them, and move on. NAPLAN practice tests should also not be used as a method to just memorise questions and answers. A tutor will use these sample questions to pinpoint which areas of literacy and numeracy the student is struggling so they can teach effectively.

Boost your child’s confidence in the NAPLAN test

If a student is having difficulty with different areas of the test, it’s very easy for them to lose confidence. This will, of course, have a very detrimental effect on their NAPLAN results. However, a good tutor works with their students in such a way that boosts confidence. The tutors at Australian Tutoring Company are experienced, patient and truly passionate about their students’ results. By starting off with questions that are suited the student’s level, and then slowly increasing the difficulty, students can gain a sense of accomplishment and a can-do attitude that they previously might have lost.
