The benefits of tutoring can differ from student to student, depending on what their areas for improvement are, and how they learn. But on the whole, there are very common benefits that most students will get from tutoring.
Very often, people can struggle with topics because they don’t fully understand them, and in a classic classroom environment, teachers cannot spend quality time with each student. Tutors can communicate with an individual student, checking they understand, and working on tasks to put theories into practice.
In most learning settings e.g. school, college, and university, exams are commonplace. Most tutors will include exam practice, and preparation as a way of learning, and understanding what kind of questions they will be faced with when it comes to exams.
Improve attitude towards learning
By understanding how a student learns and engages, learning can become way more enjoyable. This can mean better engagement with learning, as a whole, which can include at school. A tutor can also encourage, and provide praise which a student could be missing when in their normal learning environment.
Better studying habits
Having regular lessons, and time dedicated to studying and learning will mean that students get into a routine. If a student does no extra work at home, this will make this learning at home more normal. Whereas if students already do extra studying, the extra hours will encourage more work, and effort, which will normally mean better outcomes.
Having extra homework will mean the student needs to fit this in around everything they’re doing already. This is an important skill, not only in a learning environment but also later on in life in work.
Encourages involvement and questions
Many children and young people may feel uncomfortable asking questions, in a normal classroom environment. But when face-to-face with an individual, questions can be asked, no matter how obvious or silly students may feel asking them. But if these questions are asked in a comfortable space, and they are met with zero judgment, this can improve confidence and encourage questions in their regular learning environment.
Preparation for further education
Engaging with a tutor earlier on will help students to create study plans, develop their knowledge, and study skills, as well as learn how to communicate with others clearly and express themselves.
