Most group activities involve speed, accuracy and observation as key factors for victory. Whether it’s a sports activity, dancing, music, or any other form of recreation, a child can excel if he wishes. A child needs to be taught that whether you come first or second, as long as you do better than you did last time, you have won. Online tutoring, through its teaching methodology automatically helps the child develop and hone these essential talents through the usual sessions. And success leads to greater self esteem.
A child wants to learn things that would make him or her more presentable. Tutors give a feedback not only on the subjects being taught, but also on the likes and dislikes of the child. The student’s general attitude towards neatness and the aesthetic sense can be gauged during online tutoring sessions. For example, if the child is inherently untidy, an outdoor game like football, rugby, etc would be best because the game is of importance here, not the cleanliness during play. The child does not have to worry about strict rules on tidy habits or a dress code. Whereas learning art, drawing, literature, poetry, etc is best for a child who is fussy about cleanliness. Either way there is no room for criticism.
People skills are also taught in a subtle manner through online tutoring sessions while teaching a subject itself without requiring separate time. This is taught through essays, fables, stories and other forms of online reading materials. As the child’s skills develop, meeting new people, mingling with peers and planning new activities with others are not daunting anymore. This has a direct impact on the overall health of the child. Outdoor sports, dancing, yoga, swimming, jogging, walking, cycling etc. are all activities that will achieve that desired goal. Laughter, togetherness, sharing, helping, caring, listening, etc are skills that a child learns as a matter of course in life’s day to day interaction with others.
