Are learning centres just for struggling kids?

Often, the only time when parents tend to consider the option of extra tuition for their children is when they are obviously struggling at school. Maybe their grades have slipped in maths because they were at the dentist the day that long division was covered and they haven’t been able to get their head around the concept since. Or perhaps their spelling isn’t quite where it should be for their age. Tangible academic problems like these often act as the catalyst for parents to consider how they might help their children to do better at school.
