Private tuition is becoming an increasingly popular option for parents and students across the UK. As class sizes continue to grow and resources become increasingly scarce, children are finding it harder and harder to receive the one-to-one help that they need in order to succeed.
English and Maths tutors are in particularly high demand, as these two subjects provide students with fundamental skills for life beyond academia, but can often prove particularly challenging for students. So, why not consider a private tutor?
Private tuition is customizable
One of the biggest benefits of hiring a private tutor is that, unlike in a traditional education setting, private tuition is totally customizable. As tutors are under no obligation to follow a certain syllabus or teaching structure, they can craft individualised learning plans that are perfectly suited to the unique needs of each and every student.
Rarely do subject syllabuses recognise when a student needs extra time to fully grasp a topic or give them the time to apply the knowledge they have gained. However, with a private tutor, students have the time that they need to make sure they are fully prepared for every challenge they may face.
Private tuition is one-to-one:
In a busy classroom, it is easy for individual students’ needs to be overlooked and the teacher’s attention is often greatly divided. This can have a detrimental impact on students academic progress which, in turn, can affect both their personal development and their approach to study. This can easily lead to gaps in understanding that, if unresolved, deepen over time and cause significant disruption to learning and development.
With a private tutor, students can receive the one-on-one attention that they need to ensure an in-depth understanding of every element of the syllabus. A private tutor will be able to help students work through any issues that they have at a pace that suits them and can dedicate as much time as is necessary to any particular problem areas. This ensures that students have the depth and breadth of understanding to really excel in every subject they study.
Private tutors will help to develop their student’s confidence and motivation
Alongside assisting students in their academic development, private tutors are also able to enhance both a student's confidence and motivation. If a student is struggling in school with any particular subject(s), then this can significantly impact their self-belief, which can result in low motivation and a drop in their grades.
Through spending lots of time in a one-to-one setting, private tutors come to develop a real relationship with their students, and quickly learn the most effective ways of ensuring a child is progressing. As a result, they can easily identify where a child’s insecurities or self-doubt is stemming from and mitigate these issues by helping them to gain a solid foundation of knowledge from which to build upon.
Through giving them the opportunity to ask questions and receive in-depth answers, as well as helping with revision structure, essay and exam technique, tutors can help students to build the skills that they need to feel confident and motivated in every aspect of their lives.
Private tutors can help students develop their personal skillset
Alongside enhancing a student’s academic skill set, confidence and motivation, a private tutor can also assist students in developing other practical and personal skills.
Through working with a private tutor, students can develop a wide range of skills, including excellent time management and organisation skills, strong written and communication abilities, problem-solving and an impressive work ethic. All of these are essential both in school and in the workplace and will prove hugely valuable going forward.
Private tuition is flexible, convenient and consistent
One of the most beneficial things about private tuition is that it is totally flexible. Unlike in a classroom setting where teachers are assigned classes, you have the freedom to find the perfect tutor for you.
This is a huge advantage, as every teacher has a unique learning style and every student learns differently too! You’ll be able to ensure that you find a tutor with an approach to teaching and temperament to complement your learning style, level and goals!
In school, students generally don’t spend longer than one academic year in the same class. This makes it difficult for students to build a real relationship with their teachers, as they are constantly chopping and changing. With a tutor, students get the consistency that they need to build a real rapport, allowing them to maximise academic and personal development.
Moreover, your private tutor will work with you to devise a schedule that works for both of you. Whether you need tuition sessions in the morning, afternoon, evenings or on weekends, once a week, twice a week or five days a week - even those with the busiest schedules can get access to important tuition at a time and a place that suits them.
