Tutoring has the potential to benefit all students, in a variety of ways.
At school, your child is probably grouped with at least twenty-two other students working with just one teacher for each of their lessons. That is a ratio of 23 students (or more) to 1 teacher.
Therefore despite their best efforts, in a typical classroom, teachers are not able to adjust the lesson material so it is ‘just at the right level’ needed for every student to progress. Also, it is not possible for teachers to work one-to-one with every student in every lesson, or give individualised, explicit feedback to every student in every lesson.
Working one-to-one with an expert tutor, gives students a distinct advantage and has the potential to accelerate their learning.
Tutors are only focused on one student at a time, and this ratio enables tutors to plan an individualised lesson, that is ‘just at the right level’ for the student, enabling them to progress academically. Tutors can closely observe a student as they work through a task, and then provide the student with explicit, ongoing feedback during the session.
Educational research reveals that the most effective way for a student to learn is to engage with individualised tasks, and receive ongoing, explicit feedback. Students who are tutored by Optimise Learning engage in lesson content that is planned just for them, and receive explicit feedback throughout each session.
