Many parents are aware that tuition may be necessary for their child to attain his or her full academic potential. After all, it is easy for an individual student’s particular learning needs to be overlooked in a large classroom. When it comes to selecting the mode of tuition, however, the differences between the learning environment in home tuition sessions and classes in a tuition centre may not be as apparent.
The former is almost always costlier. There are nevertheless several benefits to home tuition that are worth serious consideration:
1. Highly personalized attention
Class sizes in tuition centres are typically smaller than those in secondary or primary schools. Even so, it may be difficult for a tuition teacher to focus specifically on your child in this context. If your child has unique or atypical learning difficulties, it would be worthwhile to opt for home tuition instead. A home tutor can provide more detailed feedback and instruction, as well as address problem areas that would otherwise be overlooked. Your child could also improve significantly by having an educator’s undivided attention.
2. Social pressures
Some students find it difficult to learn in larger social settings. They may become anxious due to the pressure to compete with their peers and avoid asking their teachers questions in front of their peers because they are self-conscious about their social standing (or perhaps they are too shy). In a one-to-one home tuition setting, they will be more at ease to voice their problems and learning
difficulties to their tutor.
3. Flexibility, comfort, and convenience
Home tuition poses fewer logistical challenges to you and your family. Instead of having to drive your child to the tuition centre and back (or have him or her rely on public transportation), you can count on your home tutor to arrive at your doorstep at the designated time. You will not have to worry about bad traffic, bad weather, or lengthy periods of travel. The time saved can be used to prepare for the lessons – which can be enjoyed in the comfortable setting of your own home.
When it comes to teachers in secondary schools and tuition centres, you often have little opportunity to select the individual that will ultimately be responsible for your child’s learning. Home tuition gives you the opportunity to hire a tutor that can specifically address your child’s unique learning needs. This does not simply involve subject matter expertise. You can gain better results by hiring a tutor that complements your child’s personality and learning style.
5. Additional enrichment
Some parents view tuition as a form of “damage control”, i.e. tuition teachers mainly exist to remedy the shortcomings and flaws of the public (or private) education system. In truth, however, home tutors have greater freedom when it comes to education since they are not bound by the syllabus or the focus on examination results. While many home tutors are hired to address these very concerns, they can also enrich your child’s learning by going above and beyond the school syllabus.
Home tutors can be invaluable in helping students – both strong and weak – address their learning difficulties and achieve their full potential.
