April 20, 2021

Ever thought about getting a private tutor but not sure if it’s worth it? Let’s talk through the key 6 reasons why private tuition is beneficial… 

Tailored Lesson Plans

When it comes to private tuition, you’re able to tailor your lesson plans according to your unique learning goals and requirements. Whether you want to focus on GCSE Maths equations or need help revising the Origins of the French Revolution for A Level History, a tutor will adjust their teaching to suit your needs. 

This is particularly helpful for students who are revising for their GCSE and A-Level exams and need to revise very specific content. In your tutoring sessions, you can go over areas you struggle with as many times as you need to, study at your own pace rather than having to keep up with a busy classroom and ask lots of questions.

With a private tutor, you receive undivided attention from your teacher. Unlike the crowded classroom, your tutor can focus on providing you with unique support depending on your unique circumstances and ultimate goals. 

Studies have shown that we learn best when provided with personalised teaching. With a private tutor, you get just that; your tutor will help you overcome any struggles you face with your subject and provide you with the support you need to achieve your unique educational goals.

Goal orientated

Everyone has different goals in mind when it comes to education. Some students may want to improve from a C to a B grade in Spanish GCSE and others might need to get an A* in History A-Level to secure a place at their top choice university. 

The beauty of private tuition is that it’s suited to your goals and no one else’s. Lots of students will struggle with a subject during their time at school, and it can be hard to keep up and improve in a crowded classroom. Where teachers lack time to focus on all their students individually, private tutors can understand their pupil’s specific goals and tailor lessons accordingly. 

This is also really important for high achieving students who aren’t stretched to their full potential during lesson time. Many parents hire private tutors to help their kids develop their intellect, independent learning skills and push them to their full capabilities. 

Confidence building

Students who learn with a private tutor report not only grade improvements but also improved confidence. Away from the pressures of the classroom and the judgement of peers, your tutor will help you gain the knowledge you need to feel confident in the classroom. If you are feeling anxious about class or feel like you can’t speak up in front of your peers, learning with a private tutor can help you get back on your feet and give you the boost you need both in and out of the classroom.

Independent thinking

When you’re learning at school, it’s easy to be spoon-fed ideas and arguments by your teachers. By the time you go to university, however, it’s crucial to be able to think independently and have your own opinions on topics. University requires a huge amount of independent study, reading and discussing with course mates. 

Tutoring can help children to develop their independent thinking skills. With a private tutor, students can feel comfortable bouncing ideas around, discussing concepts they might not have had the time to learn at school and developing the confidence to express their opinions. 

Subject-specific advice

Many private tutors are experts in a specific subject and have years of teaching experience under their belts. Learning from a tutor who has dedicated years of their life to a particular subject is a great way to get an upper hand on your subject knowledge and take advantage of their expertise. 

Private tutors are there to help you through some of the most important exams or your life. Whether you're worried about the GAMSAT or are looking for extra support for your Geography A-Level, a private tutor is the best way to ensure you are fully prepared for the big day.

Private tuition isn’t just for academic subjects! For those who are interested in developing an extracurricular skill or would like to explore a creative hobby, there are plenty of experienced tutors for you to choose from. 

It’s hard to describe the huge number of benefits learning with a private tutor has to offer. Why not book yourself or your child in for a free online trial call with the tutor of your choice and see for yourself the amazing difference private tuition can make to your studies.
