This week many students are heading back to school. It’s an exciting time — students get to see old friends and possibly make some new friends along the way. It’s also a time for book learnin’.
Some students are able to thrive with just the classroom instruction, but others need extra assistance to do well. For example, maybe a student got hung up on subtraction. When the majority of the class mastered subtraction, the teacher began teaching division. Unfortunately, the student is now feeling completely lost. It could be that the student got strep throat and missed the subtraction lesson in school, or maybe the student just needed someone to explain it another way or break it down piece-by-piece.
For a struggling student, having a tutor can be a game-changer. Good tutors have the ability to meet the students where they are and cater to unique learning abilities. Some students may only need to go to a tutor for a brief time before they can thrive in the classroom setting. Others benefit from a longer commitment.
Group exercise is similar to the classroom, and personal training is similar to tutoring. Group exercise is an opportunity to learn and practice movement in a group. Some people thrive in this setting; some people don’t. If you aren’t currently thriving in group ex classes (using proper form, getting stronger, and maintaining a healthy body, etc), I encourage you to seek the guidance of a personal trainer.
Personal trainers can meet you where you are, cater to your unique needs and abilities, and help you safely and effectively reach your goals.
Thanks for reading. I hope you have a safe and healthy week.
