The hustle and bustle of school education
During the time spent at school, classes full of classmates, all learning from one teacher, are part of the study environment. This teacher is responsible for ensuring that each student in the class is given the same chance to achieve the best possible results. However, it can be very difficult for teachers to ensure that all students in the classroom are given the same room for self-realization, given that each student may have a different way of learning, understanding, and comprehension. Each student has an individual learning pace and different abilities – individual strengths and weaknesses. Nevertheless, the teacher must adapt the teaching to suit everyone as much as possible.
If your child learns better through discussion, but their teacher adapts the lessons to suit most of the class that learn better through writing essays, then your child may not reach their full potential. They may also be afraid to ask when not understanding something because most of the class understands it. This may be because the classmates are not friendly or do not admit when they do not understand something. Thus, the child may think, “maybe it’s just me who doesn’t understand”. In these cases, individual tutoring is an ideal choice.
Confidential and stimulating environment of one-on-one lessons
With the benefits of one-on-one tutoring, your child may have a better chance of reaching their potential, having the opportunity to absorb information at their own pace and in their own way. Throughout tutoring, but especially at the very beginning, the tutor observes how the child learns and flexibly adapts the teaching style accordingly. During the lesson, the tutor is able to estimate the level of understanding of the topic much more effectively and identify any misunderstandings. At the same time, children are not afraid to admit to the tutor that they don’t understand something. It’s far more pleasant for them than to admit it in front of a whole class.
The tutor is able to recognize a specific area that the child is likely to struggle with and will help improve it. Not only that – the tutor will also help improve student’s learning pace. One small piece of understanding is enough to change student’s self-confidence in a particular subject. If a student is good at math but does not understand geometry, it can undermine their confidence in the subject. However, the tutor will be able to help with all the small pieces of the puzzle. And this, of course, will be reflected in classroom work.
With the growing popularity of one-on-one tutoring, this may be the push your child needs to build confidence and achieve their potential.
