Life is a Marathon, Not a Sprint – Maintaining Consistency in Education


The pressure to succeed in exams at school is a lot to take in for children. The importance of exam results at GCSE and A Level might be overblown in the grand scheme of a young persons life as there are different routes to success but one trait that is very important is consistency.

Whatever you decide to do with your life, you don’t have to be the best at it, but the best you can be, and consistency is the key. At school we learn to strive for good grades in our primary subjects and later on to become great at our specialist subjects that we might want to take further into higher education or our choice of career, but there has to be a backbone to reach this pinnacle.

Private tutors provide a consistent and solid foundation to your learning, with the majority of families who hire private tutors doing so on a weekly basis throughout schooling for their children. They provide a constant supply of material and insight from a different perspective to what your child is used to from school. A tutor can hone certain aspects of a subject or the way in which your child analyses data and interprets information. Most of all, private tuition can teach your child to be consistent in the way they work.

If you are consistent in the methods of your work and perform them with gusto, the results will appear eventually. One of the biggest errors a family can make when hiring a private tutor for their child is to consider only the end result and not the processes. It is after all the processes, which will work for your child long after school, when they are embarking on a career or a family.

At The Education Centre we appreciate the difficulties of study for all children and have a team of private tutors available in the Liverpool area to assist in all types of subjects and with all types of circumstances. Each child is different of course, but what we believe in is consistency; the consistency of our tutors, ensuring the consistency of your child. It will stand them in good stead for their lives.
