In Populo, we believe that supplementing schooling with private tutoring is not something you or your children should be ashamed of. On the contrary. Thanks to tutoring, your children can gain confidence where they lack it and improve where there is room for it. Learn how our tutors complement school education.
1. Tutoring helps students catch up
For students who have difficulty with a specific subject, tutoring can help increase their self-confidence. Despite the tremendous efforts of teachers and teaching assistants, some students may need individual help. In these cases, teachers can (and should) direct their students to seek tutoring.
2. Tutoring can develop the skills of more gifted students
On the other hand, tutoring can also be beneficial for students who understand the topic by giving them more space to think about it. In addition, during this additional time, tutors can go through more complex materials with students and have debates, which will lead them to a deeper involvement in the topic than is allowed during school hours due to limited time. This method works especially well during secondary school-leaving exams and admission exams, when such meetings can push students to think more like university students, thus preparing for future studies.
3. Tutoring can help with study skills and habits
Tutoring can also help students foster the basics such as writing papers, speaking, taking notes, creating logical outlines and procedures, and so on. These skills are especially useful for students in the period of preparation for the secondary school-leaving exam or admission exams. Later, however, they will certainly use them when studying at a university or in a work environment.
4. Tutoring is available
Unlike school education, online tutoring is not time and location-dependent. It can take place at almost any time of day and anywhere in the world. All you need is an internet connection. This means that students can schedule lessons in the afternoon or evening, or on weekends or holidays. However, online teaching at Populo still strictly keeps one rule – our tutoring is individual, and the tutor always works with only one student during the lesson.
5. Tutoring is more informal
It often happens that students develop a friendly relationship with their tutors. In this case, it is a benefit for the students because they are not afraid to ask anything or admit that they do not know what to do. Students can also be more relaxed during online tutoring and in the comfort of their own homes than in a formal classroom environment. Research has shown that people learn much more effectively in an environment where they feel comfortable. And that’s exactly why online tutoring is ideal.
