High competition and increasing syllabus has made studies very tough even for those children who are going to primary school and one can think about the condition of the students who are appearing for higher studies. The ever increasing stress of performing well is making it difficult for students to cope up and they are not able to concentrate on their studies. Ultimately parents think to put their wards in private tutoring for coaching and for extra revision.
It is not only the study pressure but various reasons such as explanation gaps, not having interest in particular subject or distractions, for which students shun away from studies. All these things lead to miss a number of key points that can prove difficult to understand once the class is over. Here the advantages of private tuitions come in to picture. In private tuitions students not only get the re-explanation of those missed points but also can understand the concept more clearly. Here students get the help from the tutor to solve those problems that are difficult to tackle even for their parents. Sometimes, this pressure can make students feel lazy or less motivated but when you are taking the help of private tutors, you have to be in the class on time. Many children spend away their time by playing all the time or on the Internet just surfing various sites for fun or chatting, watching TV, or they are on their mobiles chatting or sending messages to their friends.
With private tutoring students cannot spend much time in all these unhealthy pursuits. If children become too much noisy or playful, private tutors can discuss it with their parents and this way parents also become more aware about their ward’s behavior. They can also assign them some assignments so that their time is spent in a meaningful way. They make students work hard so that they can score well in their exams. We can say that a private tutor plays the role of a good disciplinarian in a student’s life. They easily can take students into their confidence and share his problems and resolve them.
We know there are two sides of every coin and everything has its advantages and disadvantages. Private classes also have their own disadvantages as well. The most difficult part of private tuitions is to do extra home work along with that which is given from the school. This not only stresses the students but they start losing interest in studies because they do not get any time to play or pursue extra activities. In private tuitions students can feel that extra burden and because these classes charge heavy fee, it is extra burden on parents as well. If the student is brilliant and does not needs any extra help, parents should not put him in private tuition just because others are going there. These classes are only for slow learners or those mischievous children who do not pay attention in the school.
Therefore private tutoring has its benefits and drawbacks but prudence is in making an informed decision for your child so that he/she does not develops an aversion to studies but likes to pursue it with interest.
