What is one-to-one tuition?
One-to-one tuition is where a tutor works only with one child at a time. This one-to-one support is sometimes given in school when a child requires additional help. Often this is given during extended school hours or in holiday clubs in school.
Parents often prefer that their child receive one-to-one tuition as they feel their child will progress more quickly than group tuition.
How effective is one-to-one 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 one-to-one tuition can vary greatly depending on a tutor’s ability, experience, professionalism and location. One-to-one sessions with one of our tutors range from £42 to £48 per hour. Two-to-one sessions are £32 per hour per child.
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 one-to-one tuition at a lower cost.
