Does private tuition really help?
An excellent education can give your children the best start in life, but when they need extra help with subjects to pass their exams in order to attend their chosen university or college, is private tuition really the answer? Will it really help to improve their results or is it a waste of money?
Well, new research has now proved that private tuition does improve grades. The survey, undertaken by students receiving their Junior and Leaving Certificate results for 2010, asked them if they felt private tuition had improved their grades. A staggering 80 per cent of students agreed that private tuition definitely worked for them, increasing their results by an average of one grade, which made all the difference for students gaining places at their chosen college or university.
Of course, those who used a private tutor once a week for three to six months saw a more notable grade improvement than those using a tutor for less than three months.
The value of tuition is well worth the cost when you consider they can improve their results by a grade or two on average, and therefore, you will have a very confident, optimistic and happy teenager on your hands over summer.
