How One-On-One Tutoring Helps Children Learn Better Than Online Options

By A+ Staff on 5 January 17 Blog

One-On-One Tutoring It can be heartbreaking to watch your child struggling in school, and most parents want to do whatever it takes to help their children excel. Often tutoring is one of the best ways to help your child reach their full potential. These days you now have the choice between in person one-on-one tutoring or online options. While it may be tempting to opt for online tutoring, it may not be the best option for your child. Here are some advantages of choosing one-on-one tutoring.

Strong Relationships Build Trust

The relationship between tutor and student is a special one that can influence your child’s ability to absorb and comprehend the information they need to learn. This relationship is difficult, if not impossible, to build through the internet, and is important for building trust. Without this trust, students will have a harder time understanding and retaining the information.

Reduced Distractions Allow Students to Focus

The internet is a wonderful place that can be full of endless opportunities to become distracted (checking social media, online gaming, etc.). With in-person tutoring, however, distractions are kept at the minimum so your child can focus their complete attention on the task at hand.

Verified Tutor Qualifications and Experience

The tutor you hire should be qualified and have the experience needed to help your child reach their full potential. When you opt for online tutoring, it can be very hard to ensure the tutor meets these needs. However, the one-on-one tutoring at A Plus Program is provided by highly qualified and experienced educational professionals with a passion and dedication for helping children unlock the A+ Student they are.

A Tutor’s Personality Can Make a Huge Difference

Learning should be both fun and enriching for everyone involved, and the tutor’s personality plays an important part in the overall success of your child. A good tutor will be able to use their personality to captivate your child, something computers are incapable of doing.

Non-verbal Communication Keys

Communication is only part verbal, much of it falls under non-verbal cues, such as:

  • Posture
  • Facial Expressions
  • Hand Gestures
  • Eye Contact
  • Tone of Voice

Non-verbal cues can play a large part in the educational process as they help students identify with the concepts. Your child’s body language can help the tutor better accommodate your child’s needs as well by expanding on topics they do not understand right away.
