Why are children taught in small groups?
At Achieve Tuition, we prefer to teach children in a group of two. In our experience, small group tuition is more effective than one-to-one for the following reasons:
At Achieve, we are keen to encourage independent thinking and working skills and group tuition provides an ideal environment in which to nurture these skills. In a one-to-one situation, the child can become too dependent on the tutor. When working with a group, the tutor delivers the ‘new learning’ to the child then the pupil is given the opportunity to practise and think about what they have been taught. They can then consolidate their learning independently – with the teacher on-hand to intervene and support whenever necessary. We have found this model of teaching and learning to be the most effective as children learn best by being fully involved in their learning.
We want your child to enjoy their sessions at Achieve! Being taught in a small group can make the experience less intense for a naturally shy child and they will realise quickly that they are not alone in needing a bit of extra help. An additional bonus is our tuition rooms have the feel of a classrom and therefore the children associate the environment with learning.
