Compared to the conflicts of the classroom, fraught with distractions and intimidations from other pupils, the relaxed environment of tutor and student can be a safe haven of erudition. Home tutors travel to the pupil’s house, allowing them the benefit of learning in a happy home location.
A home tutor will be able to focus their teaching on a particular area: the pupil may be very competent in some subject, but be deficient in other subjects like Maths or Science, with this specific weakness undermining their whole confidence in the subject. Sometimes the syllabus like ICSE may demand additional focus and subject expert support in order to improve the overall grade of the pupil.
Even if the pupil is performing well at school or college, it is highly likely that some private tuition will give them the edge over their peers. For it is their friends and contemporaries that they are competing against – many of who may already be receiving tuition. In an age where extra tuition is almost becoming the norm, it may be necessary to join in, or risk being left behind.
Why do you need a home tutor? Your child does not learn well inside a school room setting, and he/she needs personal attention.
Your child just isn’t as clever as some other classmates, and for that reason he is dropping behind.
Your child is, infact smarter than his / her classmates, and thus he or she is sick and tired of the slow pace of learning in class.
Your child learns with the help of performing and seeing, rather than paying attention to a school teacher.
Most of these issues are good explanations, which clarify why your child might be having difficulty in class, therefore, a private tutor providing home tuition can aid your child perform well in their studies.
1-1 TUITION - ADVANTAGES:-
1. Customized courses The thing is that courses given in a classroom cannot be focused on one particular student. It is not possible that every student in the classroom has exactly the same level and finds the same things to be difficult. Also, as a teacher it is not possible to be of perfect service to every student. However, repeating some points that a student already knows can be, on one hand boring and not challenging, but on the other hand it can increase the student’s knowledge. Repetition is not always a bad thing. One-to-one courses are completely different. In a one-to-one course the teacher is able to point all his attention to the student and the student benefits from this privilege. Courses can be adjusted to the student’s needs and any problems or difficulties the student will possibly have with particular matters can be pointed out and taken care of. 2. Minimal distractions In a classroom full of students, paying attention to what the teacher is saying can be quite hard. Lots of distractions in the form of other students and cell phones can give the student a hard time paying attention. Also, the fact that the student is one of many and the teacher’s attention cannot always be on this particular student, gives the student freedom: a small window for checking texts, day-dreaming, or chatting with a neighbour. When a student is in a one-to-one course, this window is limited to zero. The teacher’s attention is always on the student and therefore the student has no time to sit around. Of course, it is not possible to be serious all the time, but it can be said that the student’s main focus will be on the curriculum and what the teacher has to say, and this results in the maximum. 3. Connection with teacher In a classroom setting it can be hard to get a real connection with the teacher. For the student the teacher is a guy that comes in every day to do his job and after an hour he will leave, as will he the day after that, and the day after that. For the teacher, students can be either an inspiration or a challenge, but in both cases the student is only one of many, sitting in the classroom. But with a one-to-one course, when the student and the teacher are the only two persons in the room, the relationship is different. There is no room or time for the student not to pay attention unnoticed and the teacher gets to know the student more as an individual than in a classroom full with students.
There are many reasons for investing in private tuition. Here are 9 things you can expect to benefit from:
1. Much smaller student to teacher ratio
Because private tuition takes place in small groups or one-to-one, students are able to focus better and are taught in a way that specifically meets their own unique needs. Here at NIYA, students attend in groups of up to 25 children, but teaching is always one-to-one.
2. The right tutor
At school, you don't have a choice about your teachers, but we match the child and the tutor following our first meeting with the child. This means students have a mentor who teaches in the most effective manner for their learning styles.
3. Extra review & Monthly Performance Review
Often in school there is only a limited time to review a child's work and understanding. That may not always be enough. Having a private tutor gives students an extra chance to review the areas in which they may be struggling.
4. Test practice & Self Assessment
For students who struggle with studying for tests, private tuition helps them to develop better study skills and ultimately to perform better in exams.
5. Self Confidence
Because tutors develop a more personal relationship with their students, they are able to see and cultivate the potential within them. This is all too easy for teachers in school to miss, especially if a child is well-behaved or of average intelligence. This gives students increased confidence in their studies.
6. Saves parents and students time and effort
Parents with busy schedules don't always have time to help their children with school work. Having a private tutor takes the pressure off (although we would always encourage parents to spend time with their children wherever possible!).
7.Stronger drive to perform to their very best
Because private tuition means the instructor is really focused on the success of the student, students are far more likely to have an increased drive to perform to the very best of their ability.
8.Safe environment for open discussion
Sometimes students may not be as willing to ask questions in a large class, but working with a private tutor gives them more confidence and the freedom to speak out.
9. Students get taught by innovative methods
Because private tuition is one-to-one, tutors are willing to experiment with new teaching styles that work more effectively for the student.
