Private Tutoring Improves Academic Performance

By Jack Jones Subscribe to RSS | December 28th 2011 | Views:

City Tutors economically, effectively improve academic performance.

All students benefit from private tutoring. Whether a student wants extra help with an especially challenging course or extra coaching to assure spectacular performance, City Tutors, London, has a program to meet his or her needs.

What kind of support best suits a student’s needs?

Students learn in different ways and at different rates. Naturally, traditional classroom instruction is directed at average students, and it leaves exceptional students uninterested, frustrated, alienated, and discouraged. Private tutoring, on the other hand, custom-fits instruction to each student’s unique capacities and moves forward from that point. In stark contrast to regular classroom instruction, private tuition begins with a careful, comprehensive assessment of a student’s needs and objectives, and the tutor then builds an instructional program specially designed to give instruction and practice according to you’re the student’s distinctive learning style, capitalizing on his or her intellectual strengths. At City-Tutors, London, we offer four proven methods of academic support:

• One-to-One Tuition

The foundation of the “Oxbridge” system, one-to-one tuition has the full force of tradition behind it. James Turner, Policy Director at the Sutton Trust, recently stressed to BBC Radio 4, “Research proves quite conclusively that private tuition provides the best way of boosting... results.” To some extent, the statistics support common sense: When a student devotes more time to a difficult subject, he or she naturally becomes more proficient with it. The research indicates, however, students receive far more from their tutors than extra teaching and practice with the subject matter. Private tutors show students how to learn, how to demystify complicated subjects, how to use their personal and academic resources to promote their independent achievement, and how to prepare for tests. Private tutoring naturally contributes to subject-area mastery, but it also builds skills that apply across the curriculum.

• Group Tuition

Just as one-to-one tuition has been the standard for the liberal arts and sciences, so group tuition has dominated the tradition in law schools, where debate and argument matter almost as much as factual knowledge. For parents, group tuition offers a cost-effective alternative to one-to-one tuition. For students, group tuition puts them in a supervised environment where the free and frank exchange of ideas and opinions thrives.

• Distance Learning

Just as its name implies, “distance learning” affords students opportunities to travel all over the world via the internet. For UK students in remote locations, distance learning provides access to the nation’s best tutors without arduous travel to London. For international students, distance learning creates opportunities for study in University of London International Programmes or the Open University. For students who have grown-up with the internet, distance learning frequently works as well as or better than traditional classroom or one-to-one instruction.

• Personal Trainer

When a student concedes, “this is going to be more than a little difficult,” City Tutors, London, happily will schedule regular tutoring sessions throughout the student’s course. A tutor at the top end of the scale regularly will collaborate regularly with the student, building a portfolio custom tailored to the student’s unique needs and objectives, and distinguished by a personalized approach that respects his or her learning style, strengths, and weaknesses. In addition to regularly scheduled tutorial sessions, Personal Trainers maintain regular e-mail contact with students, and they send regular progress reports.

Get on the fast-track to academic success. For complete information on City Tutors’ services, the courses we teach, and the professionals we employ, visit or call 0207 129 7052.
