Where Were All of the Private Tutors When I Was at University?

 After recently reading about the huge upsurge of university students who have a private tutor, it occurred to me how much times have changed – for the better, too, as I wish that I had access to such support when I was at university. Going to university is a strange mixture of adventure and sometimes being out of your comfort zone. That extra support is always going to make a difference. Especially with the added pressure of knowing that here in London 60% of the workforce consists of graduates, it is not surprising that West London tutors are in demand.

A Tutor With Specialist Knowledge 

When looking for university-standard tutors, it is important to know that they will be able to provide the standard of education that we expect from lecturers in that subject. Good advice on this topic can be found at http://hounslowacademy.com, which now provides tutors who themselves are educated to at least a degree level in the subject that they teach. Many, in fact, have Master's degrees or are completing their PhDs and are experts in their chosen subjects. This means that they can pass on their knowledge with confidence, and students will quite often find that they are learning additional information that class lecturers do not have the time to impart in large classrooms. 

An Understanding of What It's Like at University 

Because these private tutors have themselves been through the rigours of university life, they understand what their students are going through. It can be a challenge both on a personal and academic level for students, and having that extra bit of understanding support can make a huge difference. Tutors at Hounslow Academy know the areas that might need to be tackled and understand that this does not just mean the academic subject matter, but also areas such as time management, essay writing skills, and revision techniques. They are all things that are important to a successful journey through university. 

It's a Collaboration Thing 

A university-standard tutor will know that the best way to approach helping any student is to sit down and discuss the areas that need to be looked at and then create a plan of action. This will help students achieve goals that are set, and it creates a path to be followed. They are also aware that everyone is different and that there is no one right way to learn. This is why there are several tutoring methods available to students. One-to-one tutoring suits many people, but not all, as some prefer to learn in groups with their friends – this also has the benefit of making sessions cheaper. There is also the option of online learning rather than face to face. Sometimes, time pressures make going to a private tutoring session difficult, and online learning can be easier to manage. A specialist tutor will act as a mentor and help guide a student to the best method for them. 

Always remember that asking for help with something is often a sign of strength, not weakness. Those who do, indeed, ask for help often come out on top. I know that there are many people who were at university when I was who would have loved to have that opportunity and extra help. So if it's there now, why not take advantage?
