One-to-one and Group Tutorials

While each has their own advantages, 1-to-1 and group tutorials both provide a more personal educational experience than that given in the traditional classroom.

1-to-1 tutorials

  • The student has the undivided attention of the tutor, no distractions
  • Lessons can be tailored to suit the student’s needs and learning speed
  • The tutor can travel to the student’s home (or other convenient location) to better fit the student’s schedule

Group tutorials

  • Small groups of 3 to 5 students share the tutor’s attention
  • Great for holiday revision and exam preparation
  • More economic than 1-to-1 tutoring
  • Students are able to bounce around ideas and concepts, motivate one another

The verdict

One-to-one tutoring is the gold standard for students who require individual attention, or need to catch-up on coursework they’ve missed.

Group tutorials are best suited to course revision and exam preparation; both Oxford and Cambridge universities use them to great effect. To see group classes that are currently offered in your city, simply select the 'group' button during a search.

If there’s no suitable group tutorial nearby, feel free to ask a tutor to provide one. If you can assemble a few other keen students, it’s likely they’ll be happy to arrange a class.
