We define our primary needs to be food, clothing and shelter, but in modern times an additional term needs to be added to it. Take a wild guess what that term is. It is education. Mahatma Gandhi said, “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” Education enlightens the mind and opens for us the door of opportunities. In today’s time, it is impossible to survive without a proper education. Any individual lacking education loses on great opportunities which would have enabled him or her to have a successful career.
But as we speak about education, it is extremely essential to consider its various dimensions and that being if a student doesn’t benefit from whatever is taught to him or her, if he or she fails to understand the concepts, then everything is just a waste of time and energy. Not all five fingers are the same, right? Some students due to various reasons and conditions cannot learn effectively in classroom environment. They are often seen as dull and unintelligent but that is hardly the case. It is simply that they learn a different way. A one on one approach can prove to be extremely beneficial for such students. Home-tutoring can help such students to express themselves better and bring out their true genius.
A few benefits of home tuitions are as follows:
- Personalized Coaching – Home tuitions allows the tutor to focus entirely on a student. The tutor knows what are the weaknesses and strengths of the student. Keeping in mind which areas need to be worked on and what subjects are the major problem, a tutor can design a personalized curriculum and modify his or her teaching style to suit the needs of the student thus enabling him or her to grasp knowledge of the respective subject.
- Providing a boost in self-confidence – In a classroom environment, students who are shy in nature do not raise their doubts and ask questions because they fear embarrassment. This situation is completely avoided in home tuitions. In home tuitions, a pupil can openly ask his or her doubts and get them solved. If a student doesn’t understand a concept, he can ask the tutor to repeat it again and again till he or she grasps it. As the student begins to perform better in exams, it gives a boost to his or her self-confidence thus improving his performance in the future and increasing his or her interest levels. This benefits the student in the long run and the newfound self-confidence works wonders for the student.
- Improves performance in exams – Exams these days are highly competitive. A home tutor can give individual attention to the student and thus help him or her prepare extremely well for examinations as he or she is entirely focused on the student. Students thus have a healthy attitude towards exam and this eventually helps them perform to their best potential.
- Benefit to the parents – Since parents are too engrossed with their careers, they hardly find time to look out for their child’s educational progress. A home tutor can inform the parents on a weekly or monthly basis about their child’s progress, his or her fears and weaknesses and thus helps Parents to understand what needs to be done to help the child achieve greater academic excellence. As the tutor works with the student in a close bond, he or she has an overall understanding about the student’s true potential and intelligence. Parents can thus heave a sigh of relief about their child’s educational progress.
Home Tuitions thus benefit the student greatly and can make the student a master in the respective field of his or her choice. It can bring out his true genius and help him or her truly reap the benefits of education. It can mold him or her to efficiently create for himself or herself a successful career.
