The benefits of private tutoring are immense. While a classic tutoring approach can sharpen a student’s understanding by reviewing homework and current classwork, a private tutor who offers a comprehensive personalized learning system can help a student to consistently attain better grades, enhanced subject proficiency, and much more efficient learning.
The process begins when the tutor seeks to identify the specific academic and studying skills that a student is missing. Once these skills are corrected, students can begin to accelerate their learning.
With the tutor’s individualized, data-based learning system in place, student confidence rises as they get instant feedback on their progress. The resulting data then guides the tutor’s lesson plan with customized independent practice and mastery exercises. As they follow this tutoring approach, students are quickly able to get up to speed and then tackle more challenging work.
Throughout their interactions together, students are supported by their tutors’ encouragement, experience, and guidance. Tutors are also able to track student progress, which allows the learning system to update the teaching plan, provide the next skill to be mastered, and continue to build student comprehension, academic capabilities, and self-esteem.
