Why is Individual Tutoring More Effective than Classroom Teaching?

By Edited Jun 27, 2015 0 0

Students who have the opportunity to work with a tutor find that it is much easier to understand a difficult subject than it is during class. This is probably due to the fact that a tutor has the time to give them the individualized attention they may need, where their teacher may not. Budget restraints have led to classrooms becoming more overcrowded than ever before, and teachers struggle to keep up with the demands of teaching and the number of students requiring special help. There isn’t enough time in a classroom period to work with each and every student who is having difficulty.

Struggling Student


Even knowing that some students need more help isn’t enough for any teacher to be able to assist everyone. In some cases, and if time is available, these teachers try to form study groups after school hours that offer additional aid to these students, but even that may not be enough. The only viable option is for the parents of these kids to hire a tutor to give them the assistance they need to improve their grades and pass the course. There may be students right at the school who are high achievers and willing to share that knowledge in the form of tutoring. Inquiring about this may be the first place to start, but there are other tutoring resources available no matter where you live.


Some kids just cannot learn the way they should in class, and the personalized attention they get when working one-on-one with a tutor is the best case scenario for them. Sitting down at home with their personal “teacher” gives them the opportunity to ask questions that they aren’t able to in class, and the tutor has all the time in the world to explain in clear terms, making it possible for them to understand the meaning. Some of these kids are not learning on the same level as their fellow classmates, and a tutor is able to formulate a plan that is suited to their capabilities. Having personal sessions means that there is no embarrassment for the child because no one but the tutor, the student, and his or her parents will know how the study sessions are conducted, or on what level.




Time, and an individual plan of study seems to be the answer to a lot of the problems many students are experiencing. That, coupled with the fact that an understanding, patient tutor who has lots of expertise, an ability to communicate effectively, and is willing to go over something time and again, can be the solution to a lot of the problems kids have. The more students who are crammed into classrooms, the higher the demand for competent tutors is going to be. Hire someone as soon as the student realizes that he or she is in over their head-waiting for the problem to resolve itself may result in consequences that will be hard to deal with, and a tutor may be able to solve the problem without too much stress.


More Tutors

Parents always want to see their kids succeed in high school, and they feel helpless when this isn’t happening. Some try to help in their own way, but the results are often made worse in the long run. Don’t attempt to assist your child with their schoolwork if you don’t really understand the problem or the subject. Leave this to the professional tutors who are well equipped to help any student or child who needs educational assistance. You may be surprised to see that once he or she begins to work with a personal tutor, their grades begin to improve, their confidence level rises, and they are much more relaxed and happy. All he or she needed was someone who could take the time to make sure they were understanding the subject, how to overcome problems, improve the way they study, and give them the individual attention that was needed, something that was impossible to get in the crowded classroom. You will find that you have a high respect for the tutor who helped your child become a better, all-around student, and the confidence he or she has been able to instill in that child.
