More than two thirds of parents admitted to not grasping their children’s schoolwork in a survey of 2,500 parents.
Half of the parents surveyed worried they were hindering their children’s progress by trying to help.
Founder of Crescent Tuition, Henry Pike, said: “With continuous changes to the national curriculum in terms of content and methods of examination, we see that parents are struggling to help out their children at home.”
“It’s one of the main reasons families hire a tutor and can help bridge the gap between schools and homes.”
Demand for private tuition of school pupils has risen sharply in recent years.
In July 2018, a survey published by education charity The Sutton Trust revealed that 27 per cent of secondary students in England and Wales have had home or private tuition. This figure hit 41 per cent in London.
Pressure over exam performance and competition for secondary school places has been blamed for the increase in tuition popularity.
New, tougher GCSEs were introduced in the UK in 2015, after a spokeswoman for the Deparftment for Education said that Britain had fallen behind other nations in terms of achievement, and that “the value of GCSEs has declined”.
‘If you’ve got 30 kids in a class there’s no way you can get through the course – and if you can’t do that, you definitely can’t communicate with the parents, all inhibiting the child’s learning”
