Top reasons why students struggle in the traditional classroom and why 1-on-1 learning may be the answer!

tutoring in DelawareYour child pays attention in class, does his homework and puts forth a good effort regarding his schoolwork. So why isn’t he learning?

There can be several reasons why students struggle in the traditional classroom setting. Here are just a few:

  • It could be that his learning style differs from the instructor’s teaching style. A learning style is the approach or way that a person learns.
  • Pupils sit at individual desks, often in rows and listen to a teacher lecture. There is very little interaction this way.
  • When students are asked questions by the teacher, the same kids tend to raise their hands, leaving others excluded.
  • It is very rare that students ask questions on their own.
  • When non-lecture work time is allotted, interaction between students is often not related to the current work.
  • Some students will finish lessons early and engage in non-school activities while others will struggle to even finish the assignment given.

If your child doesn’t seem to be performing to the best of his ability, it may be time to look at different educational options.

The benefits of 1-on-1 instruction are well-documented

In a 1-on-1 setting, students have the constant attention of the teacher so that they can listen and speak with much more comfort than in a group situation. Each child’s strengths and non-strengths are addressed more consistently and fully without the distraction of other students or the teacher’s compensation for different levels in one classroom. Each student can learn at his or her own pace and have the benefit of the teachers adapting to each individual learning style.
