One on one tutoring is wonderful. The student has the attention of the tutor for the whole session. Much is learned! However, there's something even more wonderful about small group tutoring that might make it more beneficial for some.
Students can chat, connect, and make friends. This builds their confidence and makes the space a safe place to visit.
2. Group work!
Learning in groups is fantastic when it comes to brain-storming, games, and using the imagination, not to mention how it helps with speech, language and communication skills. Students can work as a team or work quietly side by side.
3. Positive Influence
Students influence each other in positive ways. It's almost a little bit magic.
Students motivate each other in ways that adults can not! We can use incentives for our young people, but there's nothing more motivating than a peer telling you, 'you can do it.'
