What is 1-2-1 tuition?
One-to-one tuition is where a tutor works only with one child at a time. In school, this 1-2-1 support is sometimes given where a child requires additional help. Often this is given in extended school hours or in holiday clubs in school.
Often, parents prefer that their child receives one-to-one tuition as they feel their child will progress more quickly compared to group tuition.
How effective is 1-2-1 tuition?
There is evidence to suggest that one to one tuition can be effective over short periods of time.
Maximum Impact has been shown when delivering regular sessions of around 30 minutes three to five times a week over approximately 12 weeks. However, this has been shown to be most effective when linked with normal teaching/tutoring sessions.
What are the costs?
The cost of 1-2-1 can vary greatly depending on the tutor’s ability and experience. It is possible to get 1-2-1 tuition for even £5.00 per hour. Prices can vary from £5.00 per hour to £50.00 per hour, and sometimes even more.
How can I decide if this is right for my child?
There are several things to consider before deciding on one-to-one tuition.
There is some evidence that tuition in small groups delivers similar benefits to 1-2-1 tuition at a lower cost.
