Parents are Hiring Private Tutors to Understand their Children’s Homework




Parents in the UK have been hiring private tutors for them at charges of 40 Euros per hour, in order to understand their children’s homework. It has been found in a survey conducted by London tutoring agency, Tutor House, on 2500 parents, that more than two-third of the parents fail to understand the school work of their children. Many children keep looking for options like programming help online. Parents are also worried that they may be acting as an obstacle in their children’s progress by helping them.

Alex Dyer, the founder of Tutor House has believed that one of the main reasons for families to hire a tutor is the constantly changing curriculum at regular intervals which makes it difficult for parents to help their children in their homework satisfactorily. This has resulted in an increase in the demand for private tutors for school going students. In July 2018, an education charity, The Sutton Trust published a survey which showed 27 percent of the parents demand for a home or private tuition in England or Wales. And in London, this number has touched 41 percent which is mainly due to the high pressure for exam performance, need for 360 feedback, and the increasing competition for secondary schools. The parent tuition sessions would either be conducted online or face-to-face, and the subjects covered under this include Maths, English, Geography, and Science.

In the year 2015, tougher GCSEs were introduced in the UK because Britain lacked the desired level of achievement due to a decline in the GCSEs value. And about one-fifth of people who responded to the Tutor House survey admitted that they find it difficult to help their children with new terminology. Also, a lot of parents admitted that they failed to understand the new teaching methods. And the lack of communication of parents with other parents is also contributing to a growing demand for parent tutoring. Similar to the demand for a private SAT teacher in the UK, the popularity of parent tutoring has also been increasing on a large scale which has changed the dynamics of a home as well as private tutoring services.

Top Road Trip Destinations in Canada




Did you know that 1.93 million Americans traveled to Canada in 2020? That number was down year-over-year due to COVID-related travel restrictions. 

While some Americans visit the Great White North via plane, others prefer road trips. It can be fun to plan an itinerary, book a hotel, pack the luggage, load your family into the car, and head to the border. But if a road trip to Canada is in the plans for you and yours this summer, what Canadian destinations are worth the potentially thousands of miles of driving? Keep reading to learn about the top road trip destinations in Canada.

Grasslands National Park in Saskatchewan

Grasslands National Park is one of Canada’s 44 national parks and park reserves. Whether you’re an earlier bird or a night owl, the national park in Southern Saskatchewan provides an ideal prairie landscape. It’s the perfect place to unwind, immerse yourself in nature, and recalibrate your life.

Enjoy the great outdoors on a campsite, or take part in hiking adventures by exploring trails. The solitude and breathtaking beauty of this national park will leave you in awe. Make time for the Ecotour Scenic Drive. It’s about 20 km (around 12.5 miles) long and will take one to three hours to complete depending on your pace. 

Toronto to Stratford, Ontario

If there’s one Canadian city most Americans have heard of, it’s Toronto. Toronto, the capital of Ontario, is the fourth largest city on the continent. It’s also home to the only authentic castle in North America. Casa Loma, located in midtown Toronto, is worth the visit. So, too, is the CN Tower, which is the biggest free-standing structure in the Western Hemisphere. The city also has citizens representing 200+ ethnic groups. 

While there’s plenty to see and do in Toronto, why stop there? It’s a good idea to include a Toronto-to-Stratford excursion while on your road trip to Canada. You must travel 150 km (about 93 miles ) west to get to Stratford. You’ll see Victorian architecture and get to take in the live theater. Most Americans probably haven’t heard of Stratford before. But when you come for a visit, there’s a good possibility you won’t ever forget it.

North Cape Coastal Drive, Prince Edward Island

If you haven’t ever taken a road trip to Prince Edward Island, you don’t know what you’re missing. It’s Canada’s smallest province, but it sure offers a boatload of fun. Are you a foodie or do you like to indulge in the local cuisine when traveling? Check out the western peninsula. You can delight your tastebuds with the range of food available. 

Make time to visit the Canadian Potato Museum in the province. After taking in the sites and attractions at the museum, enjoy a meal at the onsite PEI Potato Country Kitchen. The menu has items like the chili topped baked potato, which features a baked potato, homemade chili, and cheese. Meanwhile, the pulled pork potato features a baked potato topped with pulled pork, cheese, and sour cream on the side. That’s just a sampling, and all baked potato dishes are served with fresh-cut, homemade chips.

If you’re intersted in a U.S. to Canada road trip this year, the options above will give you some ideas. The sky’s the limit since there’s so much to see and do. 

You’ll want to ensure your vehicle is in good working order to avoid breakdowns. You’ll also want to stay alert on the road since you’ll be traveling a lot of miles and spending hours behind the wheel of your car. 

If you get into an accident, you must know what to do. In addition to reporting the accident, calling your insurer, and possibly even booking a rental car to complete your road trip, you’ll want to contact a personal injury lawyer if anyone is injured. 

No one wants to consider accidents or injuries when on a road trip. But it’s best to hope for the best while being prepared for the worst. You’ll enjoy the journey and the destination a lot more when you’ve done everything possible to prepare for any possible issues.
