Advantages of In-Person Tutoring

  • Not Contingent on Access to Technology: Outdated devices or poor internet connections will not hinder the efficiency of in-person sessions.

  • Lessons in Managing Distractions: Sessions held at the kitchen counter or at a cafe provide opportunities for students to learn how to work in busy environments without being distracted.

  • Varied Methodologies: In-person lessons allow for the use of various teaching/learning strategies that are not possible online, such as completing a tangible project.

  • Close Monitoring: The close proximity of the instructor allows for efficient monitoring of the students’ work, so mistakes are caught and corrected quickly.

  • Nonverbal Cues: In-person interactions allows the instructor to more easily analyze nonverbal cues that indicate that the student is confused, frustrated, or distracted.

  • Deeper Personal Connections: Instructors who are able to interact with the students and families in person tend to develop closer bonds.
