One-on-One Tutoring: The Solution for Improved Confidence and Better Grades
When it comes to students, it’s important to remember that every person learns differently. In a school setting, many students can fall behind. It’s not because they lack intelligence; it’s because they’re not being taught the material in a way that makes sense to them. Teachers of 30 or more students cannot reasonably be expected to tailor their approach to each student’s individual learning style. That’s why one-on-one tutoring can make all the difference for a student who is struggling.
The Downside of Traditional Classrooms
In a school setting, teachers grapple daily with how best to reach students in a way that allows the material to resonate with them. And that can be challenging when faced with a classroom full of students with different learning styles. Add to that the need to cater to children who are dealing with issues such as learning disabilities, ADD or ADHD, and autism, and it’s no wonder some students simply fall through the cracks.
Even stellar students can suffer in a large-group setting. Consider the honors student who is excelling yet bored. The classroom teacher can’t keep up with her need for more challenges. At some point, she may just tune out—and miss vital education along the way.
Teachers in a classroom setting often ”aim for the middle,” teaching in a way that they hope reaches the largest number of students. They strive to provide one-on-one attention when they can, but it certainly isn’t easy to find time for focused support in an already busy day.
Tutoring Supports Student Learning
No matter the reason a child isn’t doing well at school, tutoring could be the lifeline she needs to transform her relationship with education. From helping students who have been coasting by learn to navigate reading with dyslexia to providing additional support with high-level concepts in calculus and physics, tutoring is a solution that students and parents around the globe are embracing.
One-on-one tutoring fills the gap that is prevalent in the modern classroom. By focusing on the specific areas and topics that are challenging a student, a tutor can create solutions quickly. Feedback is almost immediate in a one-on-one setting. And with that knowledge, a tutor can alter the approach to really reach the student and help him not only find his footing with the material but thrive in learning.
Confidence Breeds Success
Being successful in school is about much more than getting good grades. When a student is successful, his confidence soars. And confidence in school translates to confidence in life. Students with poor grades due to a lack of understanding can give up not only on school but on their hopes and dreams as well.
It’s imperative that our students find success in the classroom. But that’s not always possible for every student—at least not without some help and support.
One-on-one tutoring fosters the confidence students need to be successful—both in the classroom and in the real world. By receiving immediate feedback on their progress, students are able to move through the material faster, improving their self-confidence as they do so.

Improved confidence that comes with better grades and the knowledge to be on par with peers.
No matter where a student is in his educational journey, one-on-one tutoring can not only improve results but help foster a love of learning. When a child is able to embrace the process of gaining new knowledge, he is on the fast track to success in life, in the world of work, in relationships, and in the world. One-on-one tutoring is the vehicle to help get him there.
