Small Group Tuition
What is Small Group Tuition?
A small group tuition, also known as group tuition, refers to private tuition conducted by a home tutor together with a number of students (more than one).
What are the Difficulties of Organising Small Group Tuition?
A small group tuition requires aliasing of time with the home tutor and the students. Often, it requires sacrificing of personal commitments in order to meet the time of everyone. This means that if the larger the tuition group, the harder it is to find the correct time.
Advantages of Small Group Tuition
Competitiveness Provokes Improvement
It is a basic human mindset not to lag behind his comrade. With someone who is deem as a competitor side by side, it will instigate one to work even harder. Motivation is a key point to success. Studying in a tuition group will benefit the students.
Group tutoring is not as boring as a one to one tutoring session. There will be more interaction between the tutor and the students, and the studying atmosphere will not be as dry as one to one tutoring. Your child will be expecting the next tuition session!
One solution may uncover anotherís unknown riddle
Sometimes, having no doubt does not mean that a person knows everything. It is when an unknown question appears, a student will know his limit and start to panic. When a doubt is raised by a fellow study-mate, it may help others to realise their weakness as well.
Students try to re-explain to one another what the home tutor says. This in turn helps everyone of them to better understand everything the home tutor tries to explain.
Cheaper Tuition Fees
Group tuition will normally reduce the tuition rate of each individual student, such that it is more affordable for the parents.

Tutor Michelle prepared our daughter successfully for her 'O' Level Examination within a very short period of time. We did not expect her to be able to get into a Junior College with her usual results.
