Post What Kind of Tutoring is Right for Your Child?
by: Heather Eagar

When your children struggle with their schoolwork, it can be very heartwrenching to watch. As a result, most parents are willing to do whatever they must to help their children improve academically. This is where tutoring comes into play. Tutoring is known as a great resource for improving grades, as well as confidence as a student. But since there is more than one type out there, it’s important to review them before choosing one for your children. If this is not done, students won’t get the greatest benefit tutoring can offer. So let’s take a look at the kinds of tutoring available and how they can benefit your children.

Private Tutoring

Private tutoring is also known as one-on-one tutoring and represents the dynamic of one student per tutor. In this form of tutoring, the student gets a high level of personal attention that is it is difficult to acquire in a classroom setting. The student can ask questions that the tutor has time to answer. And the tutor can gain access to the student’s fears and inhibitions to tailor the sessions to student’s weaknesses. However, there can be some disadvantages to the one-on-one dynamic. One is that the tutor is very often unable to offer the resources that a larger tutoring services might have, such as computer programs, libraries of book materials, and even extra assistance. Also, in this dynamic, the student may not mesh well with the tutor due to personality difference, or the inability to absorb information as the tutor offers it. Because of these potential disadvantages, it is a good idea to study your child to determine if this type of environment is best – and if not, it may be better to look to another kind of tutoring.

Group Tutoring

Another form of tutoring that is considered effective is the group tutoring experience. In this dynamic, there are typically 3-5 students working with one tutor. This type of environment works to stimulate students toward group discussions – a way to bounce ideas off of one another. The disadvantage that some find with group tutoring is the idea that some students are self-conscience about showing their weaknesses in front of other students. As a result, the student may withdraw, counteracting the effect tutoring was intended to create.

Tutoring Center

A tutoring center can often represent a sort of blend between the private and group tutoring sessions. Your child may be able to take advantage of one-on-one training within the center environment, or there may be group tutoring sessions to take advantage of; however, the latter is more common. One of the benefits of this type of tutoring is the ability to give the child options. There are usually more materials to work with, as well as activities to enjoy. In fact, many tutoring centers offer art and music classes, as well as camps that can keep your child stimulated creatively when not taking on structured learning.

In addition to these types of tutoring, utilizing online resources is also a very beneficial road to take. So before you take on a tutoring dynamic that you’re sure will work, be sure to consult with your children to ensure that their preferences and personality types mesh well with your choice.
