Private Tuition vs Group Tuition: Benefits for your Child

Tuition has become an integral part of a student’s life in Singapore. One of the key responsibilities in being a parent is to not just identify which subject your child needs additional help through tuition, but to also weigh the pros and cons between private tuition and group tuition. Here are some main benefits for both types of tuition for you to consider.

Benefits of Private Tuition

Flexibility of Schedule

You can set the preferred day and time for your child’s tuition that can suit yours and your child’s schedule. In case there are any emergency or last-minute schedule disruptions, you can always rearrange with your private tutor without incurring any additional charges. Additional tuition lessons can also be slotted in especially before tests and exams.

Save Commute Time

Since the private tutor will come to your house to conduct the lessons, time and effort are significantly saved without the need to commute back and forth to the tuition centre nor to worry about transportation and traffic conditions.

 Undivided Attention

With this one-on-one set up between a tutor and a student, your child will receive undivided attention which allows the tutor to easily observe and pick up his/her strengths or weaknesses, and to spend more time focusing on pivotal areas to bring forth more impactful improvements.

Customized Approach

If your child is enrolled into a tuition centre, the centre itself has defined their course syllabus to be taught over the academic year. There will be no say in changing the topics to be taught. With a private tutor, you can choose which and when each topic can be taught, and to spend more time on topics that your child may need more help with.  

Benefits of Group Tuition

 Peer Motivation

A group-based learning environment for your child can foster a culture of learning, friendly competition, and accountability. When your child sees their peers being driven, it can also give him/her that added boost of motivation. When your child’s efforts are being affirmed or recognized by others, it can also encourage him/her to keep up the good work. Group revision, especially before any tests or exams, can also increase his/her sense of urgency and productivity.

Costs Savings

Engaging one-on-one tutors will be more expensive as compared to signing up for a group-based tuition class at a centre. The price difference is amplified when you calculate the fees over the whole academic year. However, you may also need to factor in other costs incurred for commuting.

Other Areas of Personal Development

In a group-based learning environment, there will be interaction and engagement with other children while learning together. This helps to develop his/her confidence, communication skills, social skills, emotional intelligence, and leadership skills, which cannot be learnt from textbooks.
