why small group tutoring works
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.'

I love how you mention that so much can be learned when students have the full attention of a tutor. My younger cousin is struggling in math and my aunt what to help him pass his classes so he doesn't get behind. We've been looking into finding him a tutor so he can have extra time to understand the lessons. Maybe we'll have to look into getting him into a group too so he can have the motivation to keep trying as you said.
