The Importance and Benefits of Private Tuition
Parents want to provide their child with the best possible education. They want to ensure that their children are equipped with the grades they need to pursue their future ambitions.
Each parent that enquires about working with our private tutors is dedicated to helping their children achieve the grades they require to get them into their desired universities, colleges or secondary schools.
While some parents take the initiative to devise timetables to ensure their child studies productively, we’ve noticed the increasingly popular option with parents in London is to opt for the experience and expertise of a professional private tutor.
What is the importance of private tuition?
In recent years, private tuition has often been cited as one of the most effective ways of helping students achieve their academic potential. For students struggling with a particular subject, teachers have more difficulty in giving them the attention and support they need.
However, this is not to imply that the teacher or school is at fault.
In a classroom, there are a number of other students. Teachers are responsible for dividing their attention amongst all their pupils. They have to keep students motivated and interested, and ensure that topics are taught within a certain timeframe, so as to effectively cover all bases.
What are the benefits of one-on-one tutoring?
By opting for private tuition, students can benefit from one-on-one attention and personalised lesson plans that address weaker subject areas. A private tutor can quickly identify which areas of work a student is having trouble with. By using an alternative approach, or explaining something in a different way, students can grasp difficult concepts.
Previously, it was only struggling students that would benefit from private tuition. However, we’ve seen a change in recent years. Due to the increasingly competitive nature of getting into London’s top schools, colleges and universities, parents tend to seek the added help and assistance of a private tutor. Even for those who are excelling at school, private tuition can be of value. It has proven to be particularly popular during the time period leading up to the exam season.
How can a private tutor help my child?
Tutors can assist students with exam technique and work with them to fine tune their skills to ensure they reach their best academic potential.
We’ve found that struggling students are often glad for the chance to have an experienced tutor with expert knowledge of a particular subject, as well as patience and understanding. Being able to discuss problems outside of the classroom environment is often a lot less daunting than doing so in front of peers. The confidence and resulting success that can be achieved through private tuition is invaluable. Especially when trying to secure a place in their first choice for university.
Are there any other benefits of having a private tutor?
Students who lack motivation can also benefit from private tuition. No matter how bright and gifted a student is, if they aren’t willing to put the work in or simply find it difficult to concentrate over long periods of time, they will struggle to perform at their potential during the exams. Revision structure, exam practice and motivational techniques can all be provided by working with a private tutor. These are just examples of how tutors can help students with subject knowledge, confidence, time management and exam technique.
Our private tutors work at the student’s pace. They provide personalised attention, understand how they learn and explore the best ways to explain difficult topics to them. They also work through specific learning obstacles with students, and teach them useful study and exam techniques.
All of our private tutors are experts in their field. They have their own materials, and make their students feel at ease. Tutors are also flexible, adaptable and know how to get the very best out of their students. They are all experienced, have taught in schools for at least 3 years and hold a degree in their respective area of teaching.
Whether you’re looking for some extra help for your child in a specific subject, you want to ensure that your child is revising effectively, or simply think it would be useful for them to have some extra then help, hiring a private tutor could be an excellent choice.
