The Importance & Benefits of Private Tutoring

The benefits afforded by home tuition are enormous. You will have the advantage of a whole teacher to yourself, with their lesson plans and strategies of teaching designed just for you!

Pitfalls of group tuition

In a classroom or in a tuition center, one teacher may be faced with a number of students, each with different abilities, varying rates of learning, and individual strengths and weaknesses. The teacher will teach from the whiteboard, unable to gauge how effectively each pupil is assimilating the lesson. The lesson plans will be designed to fit the needs of the average student; and the teacher will proceed at a rate suitable for the average student.  This means that some students may be left behind, unable to cope with the dynamics and pace of the class.

Stronger tutor-student engagement

Therefore, one obvious benefit of one-to-one home tuition is that the tutor can tailor their teaching style to the abilities of their student. They will be able to gauge the level of the pupils understanding, and, more importantly, track down the sources of misunderstanding, and deal with them effectively. Away from the distractions of the classroom, the student will feel more able to voice their difficulties; and having just one pupil to deal with, the teacher will be more capable of resolving them.

Stimulate better learning

The relaxed environment of home tuition can be a safe haven for effective learning to take place. Most tutors will be willing to travel to the pupil’s house, allowing them the benefit of learning in a happy home location. A tutor will be able to focus their teaching on a particular area catered solely to a student's weakness.

Producing results count

In a competitive academics landscape like Singapore, even if the student is performing well at school, it is highly likely that private tuition will give them the edge over their peers. This is because your child will be directly competing with their classmates and the wider cohort – many of whom may already be receiving tuition. In an age where extra tuition is almost becoming the norm, it is increasingly necessary to join in or risk being left behind.
