What is the point in hiring a private tutor?
Private tutors have excellent knowledge in the subject that they specialise in – in the same way that teachers in high schools specialise in only one subject. Private tutors will give a unique education to every child and will assess them to see what they need to work on.
Pupils who are struggling academically would benefit from being tutored privately, particularly if the problem is that they are not receiving good teaching in a particular area. The 1-2-1 model of private tutoring ensures that pupils who are struggling receive a personalised education that is tailored to their needs.
The huge difference (other than fees) between hiring a private tutor and sending your child to a tutoring centre is that they will receive more attention and the work will be focused purely on themselves.
