One-on-one tutoring is an advantage that a student who is struggling cannot afford to do without. It is the tutor’s undivided attention that ensures a student is not merely memorizing information but grasping the concepts that act like the building blocks for the rest of his or her future comprehension of the subject. If one stone in this foundation is missing, the structure could collapse. The one-tutor-one-student method naturally reveals any weaknesses and reinforces them through focused and consistent interaction, and any fundamental mistakes are transformed into a solid foundation on which students can continue to build the rest of their education.
Although there are many resources out there that assist students in their confusion over a subject (i.e. the internet, the library, teachers, etc.), they cannot always recognize and adapt to students’ learning styles and support them in the way they need. In addition, teachers are often divided unwillingly between many students, who ask for help and learn in different ways. Although teachers would like to personally help each and every one of their students, the reality is that more often than not they simply cannot. No one is at fault. Teachers were not intended to give every student undivided attention. However, that is the tutor’s function. It is this dynamic and holistic quality in one-on-one tutoring that makes it indispensable to a student’s understanding of any subject.
Given a choice, most people prefer to have a single individual teach them because they understand the effectiveness in “private lessons” like most one-on-one instruction is called. How much more would students benefit from individualized attention for topics that are absolutely foundational for a successful life and career? One-on-one tutoring is an ideal supplement for anyone’s education and the solution for a student’s problem subject.
