Advantages of a private English tutor

There was a time when private tuition was exclusively for those of considerable means. Technology and an abundance of sharable skills however means those days are long gone, and private tuition is now more attainable than ever. But being able to afford it is only half the battle – do you actually stand to gain anything from it?

With that in mind, here are some key benefits of privateĀ English tutors, and private tuition in general, to consider when making your choice.

1. Getting undivided attention

All good tutors strive to be attentive to their students, but in a class of multiple students there’s only so attentive one tutor can be. With private tuition however you get the benefit of having the tutor’s undivided attention. This allows the entire tuition process to be developed and shaped with the learner’s needs in mind. That kind of one-to-one connection can be invaluable when it comes to explaining English grammar or improving pronunciation.Ā  It allows the learner to be the direct focus of attention, rather than just one of many.


2. A pace to suit your needs

With private tuition you’re in control. Whether you’re thinking about a private tutor for your child to go through GCSE English, or you’re looking for something either more basic or advanced, private tuition allows you to learn at your pace. There’s no syllabus that marches on regardless of whether you’re understanding key concepts or not, and your tutor will be able to get a better understanding for the pace you learn at. There’s no right or wrong when it comes to learning style, everyone is different, and private tuition will allow your tutor the opportunity to compliment yours.

3. Work it around your schedule

Private tuition allows you the opportunity to learn when you’re able. This can be invaluable if you’re trying to fit your skills development in around other life commitments. Whether you’re juggling your work/life balance or you want a little extra tuition for a child and you want to fit it around their existing school studies, you have the freedom to do that with private tuition. It gives you and your tutor the discretion to determine how much tuition is required to reach established goals, and between you the ability to map out a path to achieving them conveniently.
