Q: Why is a Cyclops an effective tutor?
A: He only has one pupil.
OK, silly joke, but it hits upon one of several compelling reasons why private tutoring can make a difference in your son’s or daughter’s academic success and understanding of subject matter. The one-on-one relationship between tutor and student means that true individualization of instruction can be achieved.
The student (or, with younger children, the parent) sets the agenda and progress sets the pace. The tutor provides guidance and instruction. In a one-on-one setting, small increments of progress are more likely to get noticed than they would be in the classroom. And many students get enrichment beyond what they would get in class.
The tutoring environment is the ideal place for a student to make mistakes, because there are no adverse consequences and there’s the advantage of immediate error correction and explanations. There is also no audience of one’s peers present, so a student doesn’t have to fear asking a “stupid” question.
A good tutor — the staff at Morris Tutoring are all current or former classroom teachers — will also tune in to a student’s learning style and be able to offer useful suggestions on study skills, time management and personal organization as well.
When meeting with a tutor, the student gets all the attention, and that connection can lead not only to improved skills and knowledge, but greater confidence in what is learned and greater confidence in the ability to succeed in school.
Finally, tutoring can be a great way to gear up for finals or for that big exam.
Tutoring takes place at the Morris Tutoring offices, where learning is in the air. The environment is designed to minimize distractions and foster collaboration. Most sessions are one hour, but that can be modified to fit your schedule. Depending on number of subjects to cover and current performance level, some students come multiple times per week.
