In comparison to group tutoring, one-on-one tutoring has many benefits. One of which is an individualized study plan that a teacher/tutor creates for each student in order to best suit their learning needs. The study plan focuses on areas that a student doesn’t understand well. In one-on-one tutoring, a teacher can commit to a student and explain a lesson thoroughly.
On the other hand, group tutoring uses a study plan that focuses on more general learning goals and general topics that are relevant to the group of students. However, this means that a group study plan doesn’t consider the learning needs of each student. So it often includes topics that some learners already know.
Besides being more concentrated on teaching one student, a tutor can prepare a room for teaching in which a learner will feel comfortable enough to study. Another benefit is that every student can choose a tutor they like as that will have a positive effect on learning.
Another advantage of individual tutoring is a possibility to have a tutor that teaches several subjects. For instance, one tutor can teach several natural science subjects such as math, physics, chemistry, etc. That also means that a student can practice for more than one test during one tutoring session.
In one-on-one learning sessions, a student has to pay more attention to each lesson, therefore his or her studying is more effective and the time for learning is not only organised better but also better utilized.
The Bottom Line
A one-on-one learner can take advantage of being alone during individual tutoring sessions as there are no distractions. For example, fellow students aren’t there to send notes or to start conversations with each other and interrupt a tutor in the middle of a lesson explanation.
Additionally, some students are shy and afraid to speak in front of fellow students. Others simply don’t like to participate in group conversations. That is why their learning progress could be halted during group tutoring sessions, and they could learn better with a one-on-one tutor.
