The Benefits of One-on-one Tutoring

We commonly expect learning to take place in group settings because of economics. Larger class sizes mean that governments and private education providers can incur lower costs of educating each student. In this context, the idea of one-on-one tutoring can seem like a luxury – something that you only expect in the upper classes or the pages of a Victorian novel (where the figure of the governess is easily found).

It is true that one-on-one tutoring will almost always be costlier than private tuition in group settings. Studies have indicated, however, that they can have a major impact on students who are facing academic problems – especially those from under-privileged backgrounds who are less inclined to consider one-on-one tutoring. Here are some of the proven benefits of individual tutoring to help you make a more informed decision:

1. Catching up

Public school teachers need to keep up with the syllabus and manage a large number of students. As such, they cannot be expected to fully accommodate a single student’s learning needs. As a result, there will nearly always be students who are perpetually lagging behind their peers. They may even give up on the subject altogether and stop paying attention altogether.

Politico’s Debra Bruno has described how a tutoring system made a significant impact on the math scores in a 2013-14 Chicago study. The study involved 2,718 boys in the 9th and 10th grade in schools that were located in some of the poorest parts of the city. The boys who had been paired with tutors (who were mostly recent college graduates with only 100 hours of teacher training) earned higher math grades, failed fewer math tests, and earned higher math test scores.

2. Motivation

The Chicago study also found that the boys who had received one-on-one tutoring achieved fewer failures in other subjects. After being overlooked and ignored by their teachers, many of the boys had lost their confidence in their academic abilities. Having one tutor who focused solely on their learning process and unique difficulties helped them regain their faith in their own abilities. Despite receiving no additional instruction on non-math subjects, they were able to improve their academic performance across the board. The improved focus, study skills, and positive outlook that students gain from being tutored in one subject is thus transferable.
In an age where information is readily available online (in the form of videos, articles, blog posts, and even games), human contact is still crucial. Your child can learn many things from a computer – but a good tutor can achieve many things that software cannot.

3. Learn at your own pace

Unlike public school teacher, private tutors do not have to keep pace with the syllabus. They can afford to spend more time on a student’s problematic area (e.g. reading comprehension or trigonometry) before moving on to the next topic. The tragedy of formal education is that many students fail because they are unable to master one (or a few) critical concepts. One-on-one tutoring can help ensure that they are not deprived of any basic or advanced skills that they need to succeed.

4. Fewer social pressures

In some cases, the presence of a student’s peers can hinder his or her learning potential. Many students abstain from asking questions out of shyness and the fear of being ridiculed by their classmates. Others many simply put on the armour of indifference towards their academic abilities to shield their insecurities. In a private one-on-one tutoring context, they can be more honest about their weaknesses and shortcomings.
