5 Key Benefits of Private Tutoring

In the wake of remote learning, private tutoring is becoming increasingly essential. This article explores 5 key benefits of one-on-one learning.

Across Australia, one in every six students uses tutoring to assist with their education. This is a sign that private tutoring is increasingly being viewed as an essential investment for Australian parents. But why are so many parents looking for extra academic support outside of schools?

In an opinion piece, health educator and GP Dr Annemarie Christie proposed some theories as to how the Australian school curriculum is holding back students.

She suggested that the school curriculum has become too academically rigorous, with many students finding it challenging to understand what is being taught in class. This leads to higher levels of boredom and disengagement.

Teachers are struggling too. They are under immense pressure to satisfy curriculum requirements within the limited time available. In many cases, this restricts their ability to focus on each student, and many questions go unanswered.‍

The shifting landscape of Australian teaching, increased competition between students and a growing desire for academic success are all spurring interest in out-of-school tutoring. In this article, we will discuss the merits of private tutoring, and explain why it might be the perfect way to address your child's learning needs.

Individual Attention

It is so difficult for children to get individual attention in a regular classroom setting. Let’s imagine a typical classroom consisting of 20-25 students, with each student having their own learning pace and requirements. Some students may not fully grasp theoretical concepts, while others are thriving and looking to challenge themselves further. The sheer variety of competing demands in this environment means that teachers cannot perfectly cater the education experience to any individual.

Unlike the classroom environment, where a teacher's focus is divided between 20 other children, private tutors are at liberty to focus on one child and their specific needs. This allows the tutor to adjust the learning methods according to the child’s requirements, whilst developing an environment where learning becomes an enjoyable experience.

The tutor encourages the child to think independently, ask questions and find creative answers to problems instead of simply following instructions.

The research suggests that personal intervention can be beneficial in redirecting the student's course. This individualised attention allows a student to identify and solve the issues specific to them, ensuring that performance problems don't develop and the student is still able to realise their potential in the long run.

Personalised Learning Program

If you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live a life low of confidence, rather than embracing its unique capabilities.

Likewise, learning should be aimed at helping students discover and embrace their unique strengths instead of making them feel small or incapable.

Each child processes information differently. It is therefore the tutor's job to assess each child’s learning process, as well as their strengths, challenges and existing knowledge gaps. Once the issues are recognised, the tutor can create a personalised learning program that leverages the child's strengths and builds on their areas for improvement. These learning programs can sit across any tutoring subject such as maths, English or science.

A space to ask 'embarrassing' questions

Over time, a tutor can form a close connection with a student. The student also accesses a comfortable space to discuss the issues and obstacles that they feel are holding them back.

This is in direct contrast to a classroom, where many children feel distant from their teachers and embarrassed to ask questions that might be considered 'silly'. This tendency for students to avoid embarrassment means that students generally refrain from clarifying their doubts, meaning that those doubts often turn into gaps.

Good tutors develop a positive and friendly relationship with the child, which plays a vital role in learning. The student also has an environment in which they feel comfortable discussing sensitive, but important, issues like bullying, anxiety or any other difficulties affecting their performance at school.

The bonds that good tutors form with their students also allows tutors to model an exemplary approach to school and learning. The benefits that can come from this subconscious influence over a child's approach to their education should not be overlooked.

Benefit #4 - Increases In Confidence

If a student has difficulty learning a subject, both their grades and their confidence are likely to be affected. The grades can often be fixed with practice, however, the confidence and lingering self-doubt often remains.

To illustrate this problem, let's use mathematics as an example. A student who originally struggled with basic division or fractions is unlikely to be confident when learning more complex skills, even if they have since mastered the fundamentals. In reality, the student may have a strong grasp on the material, but the low level of self-belief (rather than the knowledge) will hold them back.

In these cases, the student requires affirmation of their understanding. However, in a classroom environment, they won't have the confidence to confirm their solutions, and so are unable to attain the clarity they need.

Working with a tutor can help a student regain the ability to understand new material, evaluate their own solutions and find joy in learning. In no time, the student will once again build the confidence required for success.

Better Performance At School

At Tutero, we view improved grades and academic performance as an outcome of the earlier benefits.

When a student is fill their gaps, feels comfortable learning, develops an independent problem-solving ability and regains confidence, academic performance will always result.

Why tutoring may become essential for some students

The Covid-19 pandemic has affected every aspect of life, and education is no different. During the period of remote learning, teachers did an incredible job of adapting to the challenges of migrating to an online learning environment. However, there is a large body of research that highlights the negative impact of remote school learning.

In this article, we have identified many difficulties associated with learning in a classroom environment, each of which have been further aggravated through remote school. In the period following remote school, it is very important for parents to communicate with both students and teachers to understand the impact of this period on their child.

If students are demonstrating difficulties learning new content, suffering from low confidence or finding school particularly unenjoyable, it may be worthwhile exploring the option of tutoring to get your child back on the right course.
