Is private tutoring more effective than group tutoring?


Learning is not a one-size-fits-all endeavor. Choosing between a private one-to-one tutoring session instead of a group session depends on the student's temperament and preference.

Some students are shy and feel more comfortable blending in to a crowd rather than standing out. They are happy to sit back and absorb content delivered without actively contributing to the topics covered. They find benefit in classmates' questions that often reflect their own. One downside to group tutoring is that, sometimes, advanced students are stymied while others are left behind.

For some students, private sessions are more effective. There are students who require individualized attention without the distraction of others. They like the privilege of interjecting at any time during the session to ask a question or request clarification, knowing they are not interrupting an entire group. They feel less inhibited to discuss troublesome spots in their learning because no classmates are present to witness foibles. In private tutoring sessions, each lesson can be tailored to target the areas the single student struggles with most, and the tutor can adapt to that student's particular learning style rather than taking a generalized approach that must accommodate a majority. For some folks, a downside to private tutoring is that it is usually more expensive than group sessions. It's important, however, not to make your decision based only on price, which is a short-term factor when considering overall educational goals.

If you decide you prefer the individualized attention offered by private tutoring sessions, contact me today to book your first appointment. I look forward to working with you soon!
