Are you wondering whether you should choose private lessons instead of a group class
I work both with group classes and one-to-one and this is a really common question I get asked.
Every student is different and needs are different. However, there are some general conclusions I can draw based on my experience over the years.
A definite advantage of private tuition is that your lessons will be adjusted to your needs and goals. They will be tailor-made specifically for you!
That means… Firstly, your needs and weaknesses are quickly identified and addressed.
Secondly, the teacher can choose or create material which is designed to fit your requirements and you can use some of your own materials as well!
Thirdly, you receive the constant attention of your teacher and you can learn at your own pace with no interruptions or distractions from other students. You can go faster or slow down if you need it!
Furthermore, you speak for the majority of the lesson time, so it is really intensive learning with a focus on improving speaking which is not possible in a class with other students. Also, you feel less pressured by the progress of other students and by the classroom atmosphere.
Last but not least, your lesson time and location can be scheduled around your life and work and there is flexibility in the length of classes.
Having your own tutor help you focus on strategies that will quickly improve your results is exactly what you need! Because focussed learning is effective learning!
