4 benefits of one-on-one tutoring
1. Repetition is always good
Everyone knows that repeating something that has been already learnt is a useful method to memorize this information. This is why assigning homework is a common practice. However, problems arise when students do not have anyone to consult with while something appears to be too complex in this homework. They are left alone with their questions and more often than not they remain unanswered in the end and a knowledge gap appears. Therefore, hiring a tutor will eliminate such problems as his or her role is to be ready to provide clarity and make any doubts vanish.
2. Tutors are a role model for K-12
3. Customized approach
Teachers at school have to follow the curriculum and have limited flexibility to adapt to each student’s needs and pace. As every student is different, the same approach to everyone is just not right and can’t work well. While working with a personal tutor, a student is “the boss”. In other words, a tutor can speed up or slow down based on the student’s capabilities and convenience. Moreover, if the tutor notices that his/her chosen approach is not efficient with some particular student, it does not take many efforts for them to change the strategy as many times as needed.
In addition, while learning individually, the student does not compare himself/herself to others and has fewer chances of developing an inferiority complex.
Last but not least, with a private tutor, even location can be negotiated. For instance, Good Tutors Finder offers tutors who are happy to work remotely and give online classes.
4. It helps to sharpen your skills
The lack of practice is often the reason why we tend to “lose” our skills. It’s important not to let this happen by constantly maintaining your skills. Tutoring ensures that the same concepts are repeated, and the gained knowledge is sharpened even during official holidays at school or at summertime. After this kind of training, pupils start the new school year well equipped and ready to “climb the Everest”. By the way, summer tutoring can be low-stress and fun as scheduling is usually flexible.
