The Pros And Cons Of Hiring A Private Tutor

Are you considering a private tutor for your child - these tips will help you decide on whether it will work for you.

 

Pros

 
Convenience
 
Most of the time, tutoring sessions take place either at home or in a library, being therefore very convenient for the family. As parents have hectic schedules, they prefer getting a private tutor to instruct their children, as this solution offers them the flexibility they need to cope with their day to day duties and responsibilities.
 
One-to-one Lessons Help Maintaining Focus
 
Private tutors, such as 11 Plus Tutors in Essex, teach their students on one-to-one basis, thus enabling them to stay focused and avoid distractions. These private lessors are excellent opportunities to develop a relationship with the tutor. This helps some children to pay attention to the tutor for longer periods of time. Many children perform well in school, but those with focusing problems find it very difficult to perform in the absence of one-to-one time with the teacher.  
 
Cost
 
As private tutors don't come with the fame of reputable schools, they are usually a bit less expensive. As the quality of the education is everything that matters, a private tutor with good credentials may be able to do a better job than many of those pricey schools or tutoring centers.
 
Hands-on Education
 
Parents may trust tutoring centers, but they have very little to no influence on what education their children get. This is why parents need to pay close attention to the lesson plans and the progress of their kids. By hiring a private tutor, a parent can develop a closer relationship with this individuals, as well as with their own child. When tutoring sessions occur at home, the mother or the father can keep tabs on the progress.
 

Cons

 
Overall Expertise
 
Private tutors may possess a limited expertise in comparison with big tutoring centers, so they may not have everything required to properly tutor your children. If a kid encounters difficulties in more than one subject, or has to overcome a learning challenge, private tutors may not offer the resources a tutoring center would offer.
 
Poor Training Skills
 
Some tutors may be experienced and well-trained in the subject your child is struggling with, but they may be unable to teach it properly. Tutoring centers organize regular training sessions aimed at improving the teaching skills of their tutors. This is why it is very important to examine the credentials and the references of a private tutor very carefully before hiring him or her to teach your child.
 
Less structured Setting
 
Some children may not be able to work on math problems at the kitchen table. Improper setting may lead to focusing troubles, as the kid may get distracted by various things in the room. An atmosphere that stimulates learning is essential, and tutoring centers are very good at creating it.
