A.A. Shah’s Institute is providing guidance and coaching to candidates in the field of civil services and all other competitive examinations since past many years and many of our students have succeeded in their respective fields and came out with flying colours. We are delighted to announce our new initiative to provide academic tuitions to school students from Standard VIII to XII with the best tutors and trainers available at our institutes all over Mumbai who are experienced in mentoring UPSC aspirants.
There are many reasons parents choose tutoring for their children. Some parents are unable to help their children with schoolwork. Others may find their children are more receptive to working through school struggles with another person. Tutoring can help strengthen subject comprehension, boost confidence, and build important learning skills. Parents want to provide their child with the best possible education. They want to ensure that their children are equipped with the grades they need to pursue their future ambitions.
Tutoring gives students individualized attention that they don’t get in a crowded classroom. This helps students who struggle to keep up, as well as those who aren’t challenged enough. It also keeps students on track during breaks from school, such as summer vacation.
7 Important Reasons Why Tuition Is Necessary
In recent years, academic tuition has often been cited as one of the most effective ways of helping students achieve their academic potential. For students struggling with a particular subject, teachers have more difficulty in giving them the attention and support they need.
However, this is not to imply that the teacher or school is at fault.
In a classroom, there are a number of other students. Teachers are responsible for dividing their attention amongst all their pupils. They have to keep students motivated and interested, and ensure that topics are taught within a certain timeframe, so as to effectively cover all bases.
1) Classrooms are far too crowded
India is a country, with a large population. Our overcrowded classrooms are a by-product of this phenomena. In primary school, it’s not uncommon for a class to have up to 40 students and even more; which isn’t unheard of in secondary school either. As our students progress into their years in tertiary education, they’ll met with lecture halls holding up to over a hundred students per module. The issue here is that these classrooms filled with students are expected to follow the pace of one single educator. On the surface, this might not seem like a problem – but what if the student’s pace of learning differs from everyone else’s?
2) Students have different learning styles and abilities
The local education system can’t be described as a “one-size fits all” type of delivery. On the contrary, it’s far from that. The architecture of public education makes it difficult for students with different learning styles to keep up with the rest of the class. It’s no help either that teachers generally cater to the majority. Having tuitions will grant your child an educator who’s able to cater to his or her learning style and create a more efficient education environment.
3) Students are under a high amount of stress
Don’t be fooled by their seemingly carefree and playful natures; students are actually under a ton of stress that parents typically don’t witness. It’s important to bear in mind that students are expected to take part in after school activities while improving their grades. They’re constantly reminded of their major examinations, and every corner they turn is someone telling them how important it is. Having a tuition teacher to aid your child will put them at ease, especially if they have someone to answer their questions and guide them along.
4) One-to-one teaching and attention
Another huge positive gained from academic tuition is the amount of time a student will receive from a teacher. As academic tuition is usually on a one-to-one basis, teachers can focus their attention fully on a student. This is obviously a huge advantage compared classes of twenty to thirty pupils where a teacher’s time is divided and individuals can very easily become lost in the crowd. With less distractions, the tutor is better able to appreciate and work on a student’s weak points, making the whole learning process more effective.
5) Help with homework, revision and test practice
Homework can often be a boring, and sometimes daunting experience for students. Left to their own devices, many will just work through it without really engaging in the subject, and it becomes more of a box ticking exercise. Having a tutor who is able to keep the student focussed and interested will ensure that the homework is not only completed to a higher standard, but, more importantly, is more effective in terms of what a student is able to gain from it. Similarly, tutors can be especially effective in regards to test preparation. The advice and assistance that they can provide ranges from the structuring of revision, to troubleshooting weak points in the student’s knowledge. As such, a tutor’s help can prove invaluable.
6) Flexible and convenient
As a mode of teaching, academic tutoring is becoming increasingly flexible and convenient. Tutors will often be available near to you, which saves a lot of time for both students and parents in regards to travel. Organising a suitable timetable is also easily achievable, allowing sessions to be structured around school or other extra-curricular activities. With the rise and growth of online tutoring, this has become even easier, allowing lessons to occur where and when you want.
7) Saves time and effort of parents
Although it is great if parents are able to get actively involved with their children’s learning, this is not always a practical option. Busy schedules can limit the time you are able to spend each week helping out with homework. In addition, as children become older and their studies become more advanced, parents may not always be able to provide suitable assistance. In both these cases, having an academic tutor who has both the time and skills necessary can be a great help, benefitting both students and parents alike.
What are the benefits of tutoring?
By opting for academic tuition, students can benefit from one-on-one attention and personalised lesson plans that address weaker subject areas. An academic tutor can quickly identify which areas of work a student is having trouble with. By using an alternative approach, or explaining something in a different way, students can grasp difficult concepts easlily.
Previously, it was only struggling students that would benefit from academic tuition. However, we’ve seen a change in recent years. Due to the increasingly competitive nature of getting top schools, colleges and universities, parents tend to seek the added help and assistance of an academic tutor. Even for those who are excelling at school, academic tuition can be of value. It has proven to be particularly popular during the time period leading up to the exam season.
How can an Academic Tuition help your child?
Tutors can assist students with exam technique and work with them to fine tune their skills to ensure they reach their best academic potential.
We’ve found that struggling students are often glad for the chance to have an experienced tutor with expert knowledge of a particular subject, as well as patience and understanding. Being able to discuss problems outside of the classroom environment is often a lot less daunting than doing so in front of peers. The confidence and resulting success that can be achieved through academic tuition is invaluable.
Are there any other benefits of having an academic tutor?
Students who lack motivation can also benefit from academic tuition. No matter how bright and gifted a student is, if they aren’t willing to put the work in or simply find it difficult to concentrate over long periods of time, they will struggle to perform at their potential during the exams. Revision structure, exam practice and motivational techniques can all be provided by an academic tutor. These are just examples of how tutors can help students with subject knowledge, confidence, time management and exam technique.
Our academic tutors work at the student’s pace. They provide personalised attention, understand how they learn and explore the best ways to explain difficult topics to them. They also work through specific learning obstacles with students, and teach them useful study and exam techniques.
All of our academic tutors are experts in their field. They have their own materials, and make their students feel at ease. Tutors are also flexible, adaptable and know how to get the very best out of their students. They are all experienced and hold a degree in their respective area of teaching.
