I believe private tuition should be tailored to the needs of each student and what they hope to gain from tutoring, whether that be an improvement in specific areas, motivation in their learning, or exam success. It’s vital to make tutoring engaging for the tutee, by finding the teaching method that best suits them. I think it can be very useful for students to learn new ways of improving their skills which they might not have been taught at school or college. This helps to ensure a thorough understanding in all areas of their subject. I’ve also found an effective way for students to consolidate their knowledge is to go over what has been learnt in lessons, by recapping and setting homework. Above all, I believe tuition should motivate students, so that through gaining a comprehensive understanding of their subject they become inspired to learn more.
