Home tuition is gaining popularity with students, especially those expecting to sit for national, or entry-level exams. The popularity has been blamed on the traditional school system which has crushed learners’ confidence, causing them to fall behind at school. Apart from the one reason mentioned above, students prefer home tuition for the following five reasons.
1. Preparing for Exams
Nothing gives students jitters than end-of-term or end year exams. For that reason, they prefer a tutor who will help them better prepare for that major exam. After all, an examination is usually a matter of life and death, and students don’t like to fail.
2. Access to Top-Notch Tutors
As long as their parents can afford them, learners’ self-confidence is boosted by tutors’ vast experience in the subjects they teach. Knowing that they have the best tutors is a sure-fire way of boosting their confidence in whichever learning area that’s problematic.
3. A positive Workspace
The classroom environment is full of distractions, and so teachers waste time trying to control unruly students. At home, however, the lack of distractions helps the students to focus on the task at hand which leads to improved performance.
4. Freedom to Express Oneself
A shy student finds it difficult to function in a normal classroom setting. Not only is he or she judged harshly for saying the wrong thing, but also for asking what peers consider a foolish question. During in-home tutoring, students can ask just about anything to help in their understanding of a difficult subject, or concept.
5. One-On-One Attention
Closely related to the above point is the fact that tutors get to know their learners’ weaknesses. This way, they show more empathy and focus on adapting teaching methodologies that suit the students. The tutors actively seek the success of their students, something that pays off.
Clearly, it’s not only parents who seek tutors whenever they see the need. Students who feel they want extra help usually inform their parents about their struggles. This way, both of them can actively find the right tutor or tutors, who will help rectify any deficiencies in their academic work.
