The education system has evolved to adapt to the term “21st century competencies”, which is basically an ambitious attempt to stay ahead of the curve. It has become a survival-of-the-fittest ‘contest’ and in order to survive, what is being taught in schools is insufficient. Students are looking towards the option of tuition, be it home tutoring, lessons at a tuition centre or even online tutoring.
There is particular attention that home tutoring gets because of the various benefits that it can bring about. Students will realize that they are becoming better and that transition will make great changes in their lives.
So, let’s take a look at the 7 best things that home tutors can offer.
#1: THEY EDUCATE
Being freighted with an immense amount of school work, they are bound to think of tuition as just another burden; but over time, they will be proved otherwise. Teachers in schools are always in a hurry to finish their syllabus within a pre-set deadline that the subject departments come up with, and some lull their students to sleep with their old and crusty teaching techniques or some might even be dismissive of their students’ doubts or suggestions which makes them look unapproachable.
Having known this reality, tuition teachers make sure that they keep their lessons engaging and most importantly, to teach according to the student. They understand that students have a disparate world of thought and in order to establish a strong teacher-student relationship, they will make the effort to get into the headspace of the student as well.
Tutors have the virtue of patience and thus they can deal with all kinds of children because they know it’s not the child’s permanent characteristic; things will change for the better with time. Good tutors do not have any prejudices, in other words, they will be unbiased with all their students. Tuition teachers are trusted educators, and they understand students’ concerns and dilemmas.
Tutors will make the effort to explain the pros and cons of certain academics-related decisions or career-related decisions and ensure that their students are well-informed and mature enough to do what’s best for them in the right way.
#3: PERSONALISED TEACHING
Teaching a group of 10 children vis a vis tutoring one child is at either end of the spectrum. Tutoring one child requires the tutor to study, analyse and comprehend the student’s learning pace, learning methods, memory retention process and areas of the student’s strengths and weaknesses. All this analysation then translates into more customized teaching that the tutor will provide and this will help the student to excel at a faster rate.
It is also important to note that private tutors are not there to be their student’s confidante and they are no there to molly-coddle them. Instead, they will be a source of motivation and inspiration.
