Here’s a challenge for you: think back to the last time you were in a group lesson of any kind. Got the picture in your head? Great. Now ask yourself if that group experience was completely seamless, totally focussed and 100% productive? Hopefully the answer is yes, but all too often feedback on group learning experiences is negative. Classroom learning environments are often rife with interruptions, such as misbehaviour, late arrivals, and the customary “What did we cover last week” questions from the bloke who was away! Other set-backs such as last minute teacher changes, classroom swaps and varying levels of ability, all contribute to an often less than ideal learning scenario. But before we start screaming “Home tuition's the answer”, lets look at the ups and downs of private tuition as an alternative to group learning. Private tutors can often be used as an effective alternative or supplement to group scenarios, and can be a fantastic way to augment learning, (depending on variables such as individual student needs, quality of tutor, etc. etc.) Let’s look at a few of the key benefits of home tuition.

Home tuition is a personalised experience


It’s a well-known fact that we all learn at different speeds. Some of us are able to absorb information much quicker than others, without the need to ask several questions. Therefore, the varying abilities that are present in most classrooms can hinder the rate of learning for some. Home tuition offers a far more personalised experience for the student, with the pace being set by him/her and undiminished by other individuals. This tailored work rate increases retention of information and optimises the learning process considerably.

Home tuition can be extra-curricular


The goal of passing exams is often the principal objective of any learning set-up, including the private tuition format. However the difference between classroom learning and home tuition, is that where classrooms are often only geared towards the specific skill of 'passing', valuable supporting information can be missed. This type of additional, specialised, 'less conventional' teaching, can help develop other skills such as critical thinking and creativity. One of the great benefits of home tuition, is that the tutor is able to go ‘off topic’ with a student if they feel it will benefit the wider goal of improved overall learning and exam success.


Flexible schedules to suit any learner


Logistically, home tuition is a fantastic choice for anyone who finds themselves strapped for time. For adults and children alike, having the flexibility to decide when learning should take place is a very appealing option. Tutors and learners often work together to coordinate a timetable which suits both parties, (although the more successful tutors will always be those who are most amenable to their clients' needs). Private tutors will dedicate enough time and schedule flexibility, to ensure that the learner is suitably equipped to succeed in whatever assessment they are heading towards.

Home tuition is virtually distraction-free


As we touched upon earlier, group learning can take place in environments which are far from ideal. With home tuition you are free to create your perfect learning environment – and therefore maximise your (or your child’s) chances of attaining those all-important goals. When starting tuition with a new student, a tutor will often take the time to ensure they are completely comfortable and ready to learn – based on the premise that the more relaxed a person is, the more they will take in. Feeling ready to learn can make all the difference!

  1. I believe that 1-1 interaction is vital part of learning. That it allows a more flexible and person specific approach to learning and teaching. However, I also feel that learning though social interaction, forming ideas, testing them forming ones own words and using/testing them by discussion with a variety of other people is also vitally important. My opinion is that a balance should be reached in order to create the optimum learning environment.

  2. Having worked as a classroom teacher and a private tutor over the years, I completely agree. There are certainly benefits to both forms of learning and as with most things in life, the best way forward is usually finding a workable balance.

  6. Both are best on their own place. If tuition group is of 2 to 4 students is best than home tuition. Group discussion gives more confidence and also increase the communication skill. If we are in short group of students 3 to 4, teacher can also concentrate on everyone.

  11. Its depends some children do require full concentration from a tutor to teach and guide them in order for them to focus and learn improved. However, in most cases, group learning, particularly those with little class sizes of 6 or less, be inclined to be more effectual in hopeful and enable the child to learn more, and learn better.

  14. Home tuition can be a group activity! I use friends personality’s in my expert college paper writing service. I am only 15 and I really enjoy writing, I write for my friends who enjoy every new novel I produce. I don’t care if in future my books will be published. But getting back, I am currently writing a war story. I use my friends as characters, not all the characters, but some. I will sometimes give them a situation in the book, and ask them what they would say or do. So I get realistic and different results to the nature of my characters. Try it, I only enjoy writing when I involve others.

  16. Still the advantages of a home tuition are far greater than its disadvantages.Thus it is a very good option for the students to take home tuition. As they are trained personally in studies and can clear all their queries without hesitation.

  17. I agree with this.. Unlike the fixed timetables of a tuition centre, a home tutor is often more flexible with their timing and we can easily integrate the student’s timetable with the tutor’s. Thanks for sharing

  18. I think it is better to send your child to the public school because there will be some problems if you child will grow out of the society. Follow the link if you want to read more about it.

  20. Law guides are a profitable item to those considering undergrad or postgraduate law, or expert capabilities, for example, the LPC and BPTC. Its a well known fact that these degrees are especially troublesome, and numerous understudies select coaches to help them traverse their exams and coursework, or achieve the most astounding respects. http://www.mordocrosswords.com/2016/11/kind-of-tuition.html
