With one-on-one instruction, the tutor can develop a plan that is customized to the students’ needs and enhance any areas of weakness through positive reinforcement. If the student is having difficulty understanding a specific concept or skill, the tutor can devote more time explaining and demonstrating the concept. This effectively allows the student to understand the information at the appropriate pace for his/her learning. One-on-one instruction is specifically designed to help increase the students’ knowledge and understanding of the concept or skill while also keeping the student more focused and engaged. Thus, allowing the student to use his/her time more effectively when learning.
The ultimate goal of one-on-one instruction is to celebrate success! Each session provides the student with continuous positive reinforcement, praise, and encouragement. It is essential that students feel great about their progress, improvement, and understanding. When the students’ self esteem and confidence is increased, it encourages them to be motivated and realize that learning can be exciting, engaging, enjoyable, and most of all – FUN!
