Private tutoring or class-based tuition courses?
It’s a controversial issue and opinions vary. Both options have their place and their own set of advantages and disadvantages, which this article investigates.
Like tutoring, the quality of group tuition classes vary, and therefore, this article will only consider the TSFX Master Classes.
The TSFX Master Classes are specialised tuition classes that are held in groups of 7-22 students. These classes are delivered by experienced VCE teachers who are VCAA exam assessors – the same teachers who will be marking your final VCE exams.
The Master Classes revise what’s been covered at school and then extend students to VCAA exam standard, and are designed to help students achieve the highest possible marks in their SACs and exams.
Students don’t get sole attention as classes are held in groups. Students are, however, able to use our high achieving VCE tutors before or after class.
Private tutoring or class-based tuition courses? There is no right or wrong answer.
Group tuition classes like those offered by TSFX do have extra benefits and are more financially affordable when compared with private tutors, but in some cases, private tuition may be the better option. For example, when a student has learning difficulties, is struggling in a particular subject or needs regular assistance in completing homework tasks.
However, there are many students who find they’re able to grasp the ideas taught in class but want that extra guidance to extend on course materials, to systematically prepare for the exams or to get an edge over their subject peers. Some students don’t enjoy complete attention being placed on them and thrive in social environments. In cases such as these, group tuition classes are the more effective solution.
