5 Amazing Benefits of 1 to 1 Learning
Updated: Mar 20, 2022
It’s very common for a child to sit in a classroom filled with other students and feel too afraid or shy to speak up. Classroom settings can be highly intimidating and daunting for some children, which prevents them from learning as much as they are able to.
1 to 1 learning has become an extremely popular and effective way for students to learn and achieve their goals. Here are some of the incredible benefits that your child could experience through 1 to 1 classes:
Uninterrupted and focused interaction. In a one-on-one learning environment, teachers are able to give the students their undivided attention. They are able to closely assess the progress that he or she makes and work at a pace that is best for them.
Students feel heard. It’s very common that in a classroom setting students may feel like they don’t have anything valuable to add to the class. However, in a one-on-one class students are encouraged to give their opinion and to talk about what they have learnt and to ask for more clarification if they need, without feeling judged. Their voices are highly valued.
Low stress and less pressure. One-on-one learning creates a more stress-free environment for students to learn. Students no longer feel the need to compare themselves to others or to try to keep up with a certain classroom standard. They’re able to put more focus on their own progress and improvement.
Teachers can plan personalised lessons. One of the most crucial benefits of one-on-one learning is that the teacher is able to plan lessons and create materials that are specifically suited to the student. Teachers are able to learn the students’ abilities and create the lessons accordingly. This is especially important because it allows the student to progress at their own speed.
Students are encouraged to participate. In a classroom filled with students, many of them are too shy to raise their hands to answer a question or to volunteer to participate in an activity. This changes with one-on-one learning because each student has the responsibility to be involved with the teacher. This teaches them to be more confident and able to communicate more freely.
