Why Learning One on One Works

In our current educational system, students can get lost in a sea of larger class sizes. Due to the fact that teachers have so many students in one room to focus on, some can get left behind feeling like they are not truly benefiting from the lesson. Because of this, many students have chosen to register for tutoring classes to fully take advantage of their learning experience.


Allow your child to take control of their academic journey and reach their highest potential. They deserve personalisation and attention in a one-on-one setting. Never considered this as an option? Keep reading to discover the top three benefits of personalisation!

  1. Tailored Lessons

One-on-one tutoring classes are beneficial for your child’s progress, as all lessons are tailored to their abilities. Teachers can modify lessons according to their needs in more ways than one!

By having one student, educators can adjust the lesson plan to their student’s particular learning style. For example, if the child learns best visually, the teacher can use this knowledge to communicate the objectives of the lessons with more videos and diagrams.

Students can also set the pace in one-on-one classrooms. Both the pupil and teacher can take their time to reach their set learning objectives in a way that is most comfortable for the student. Instead of having to abide by a formal school timetable, learners will feel less pressure and will be more relaxed.

2. Undivided Attention

Young learners will also gain the teacher’s full attention in a personalized session. With no other students to focus on, your child can truly benefit from every lesson rather than fall behind at school.

In some school settings, classroom management can be a real issue. As teachers try to teach the lesson, valuable time can be lost to quiet the class or discipline a student. Because of this, many students are not able to optimize their learning and get the extra help they need. In a one-on-one setting, this obstacle disappears and students are able to catch up on things they may not have understood in class. The student can ask as many questions as they want and will never leave the classroom feeling like their needs are not being met.

Teachers can also give the student feedback at every step of their learning journey. In traditional classrooms, students don’t always know what they need to work on and how they can improve. With a private tutor, your child will receive daily comments and suggestions of ways to advance. In such a setting, students will have the all the tools necessary to succeed.

3. Safer Environment

Only in a safe and stimulating environment, can students thrive and evolve. One-on-one classes create that sense of comfort for students to improve their level of confidence and reach their highest potential.

Most students are afraid to raise their hands in class or voice their opinions, for fear of judgement from their peers. These fears melt away in a private setting, building the students’ self esteem. In such positive spaces, students will be less afraid to make mistakes and more willing to speak their mind. Soon, you’ll start to notice their personalities flourish as their confidence grows more and more.

When East Meets West in the World of Education

A variety of different teaching methods exist around the globe, from differentiation to the use of technology in the classroom. Various strategies have arisen to keep up with our ever-changing world, which is always evolving and growing. Over time, interactive boards and pointers have replaced traditional chalk and classroom layouts have become much more friendly and inviting. Students learn differently than they did long ago, so schools and teachers have adapted their methods to best fit their pupils’ learning styles. But what is the best way for children to learn? At Inspiration Learning Center, we believe in bringing together two very different styles to maximize your child’s potential!

An educational study which sent seventy teachers from the United Kingdom to learn more about Chinese teaching strategies was conducted in order to understand the secrets behind Chinese students’ success. It’s a well-known fact that Chinese students work extremely hard and put a lot of effort into whatever they do. This is because it is ingrained in their culture to do so. Students have adopted what is known as the Confucian learning tradition what states that the main purpose of life is to learn and that it is a life-long journey. This is what we try to encourage at our learning center, as we try our best to make our students feel empowered with knowledge. Also, we stress the importance of practicing the information learned in class in the form of homework and revision, to further grasp newly learned concepts. Encouraging this sense of effort and consistent practice is something we strongly believe in.

Western teaching methods vary greatly from those in the East. In the West, classrooms are more student-centred and children learn actively. For instance, inquiry-based instruction is quite a popular method which enhances a student’s sense of curiosity. With this strategy, children come up with their own questions regarding the lesson and try to find the answers themselves. This teaches them to be inquisitive learners, always eager to learn more. Students are also encouraged to be creative thinkers under the Western teaching philosophy. Several school assignments and essays push students’ creativity, asking them to critically analyze a form of media, for example, or come up with their own research questions regarding a specific topic. In addition, classrooms are often differentiated in order to cater to all students’ learning styles. Students can choose the type of work that would best fit their style, whether it be visual, auditory, or kinesthetic. With this method, students learn in a way that best fits their abilities.

Because both Eastern and Western teaching philosophies have such strong features, we decided to combine the best of both worlds at Inspiration Learning Center! At our learning facility, students will acquire new information with the freedom and creativity associated with the West and learn the power of hard work and consistent effort connected with the East.
