The next time you think of your child’s education, don’t mind the extra money involved.

Of course you want the only the best and nothing but. It gives you the greatest return on your investment. It gives you the cutting edge in life. However, you seldom get the best on a silver platter. You have to work hard for it. You don’t get it in one snap of a finger.

In recent years, unemployment rates have been on the rise. For future graduates, the prospects are not as rosy. And that’s why enrolling your child in a good university to get the best education has never been more important as it is today.

But these days, a good education costs an arm and a leg, plus a little bit more. Good universities charge high tuition fees. And the parent must pay tuition fees for years and years to get a good quality education for his child.

How do you ensure that your child takes full advantage of your investment? How can you guarantee that he can handle all the academic challenges of a good university? How do you make sure that he will not only pass, but that he will do so with flying colors?

“The key is to put him in a program that will help him develop the right study habits, learn things faster and better, and grasp concepts easier,” says Ahead Tutorial and Review President Rossana Llenado.

But wait. You have meetings to attend, deadlines to meet, and papers to write and sign. You simply have no time.

What do you do?

“Get a good tutor,” suggests Llenado.

A tutor can give your child undivided attention. He can adjust to your child’s learning level and design a program that will cater to his academic needs and schedule. It might also be a good idea, she adds, to get a young tutor that your child can be comfortable with. Your child can more easily relate to a younger person, giving him more freedom to ask even the most difficult of questions. “But since the tutor is still older than your child, he still wields authority,” Llenado says.

Another option is a group tutorial made up of a limited number of students, Llanado points out. “Small classes allow the teacher to focus on each student. The student ends up learning more,” she says.

The typical classroom has about 40 students. The sheer size prevents the teacher from giving each student the proper attention. Some of these students would naturally get left behind. The temptation to get distracted is also greater since the teacher cannot always keep an eye on everybody. Students can fiddle with their cell phones, talk with their seatmates, joke around, or even daydream without the teacher ever knowing it. The parent will never get the most out of his investment on education this way.

The next time you think of your child’s education, don’t mind the extra money involved. It’s not money casually wasted but money wisely invested. Not only that, it could very well be your best investment, earning dividends through the years, giving you security over your child’s future.
