Private Tutoring Improves Grades
by up to 3 Letter Grades
Did you know just 10 hours of tutoring could boost your grade from a C to an A?
A study conducted with 300 American tutors has concluded that just 10 hours of private tutoring can have a dramatic effect on grades. The study showed that 72% of students improve their grade by between one and two letter grades (so moving from a C to a B or even an A). They also found a small percentage of students (around 12%) improved their grade by two or more letter grades- meaning your child could potentially move from a D grade to an A grade.
So how does private tutoring improve grades?
1. One on one support. The main advantage of a private tutor is that they spend a great deal of one on one time with students. This means they can quickly and effectively assess strengths and weaknesses. Based on this they can create a highly targeted plan of study to tackle any issues.
2. Fun learning. Each tutor has their own teaching methods but they can be incredibly flexible depending on the needs of the child and their learning style. They also have the scope to create fun lessons that may be different from the traditional, less interactive approach in a classroom.
3. A safe environment. Private tutors allow a child to talk about their problems in an environment they feel safe in. They can discuss their fears, chat about subjects they struggle with and talk around problems. They don’t have to worry about what their friends or teachers think. This often means a child becomes more confident, which helps them in the classroom setting, in turn improving their grades.
