Here are some of the benefits of personalized English instruction over all the class room offers out there:
- Being the only student in the room, the sole focus is on YOUR improvement
- We work on what you need
- Lessons are more customized
Sole Focus Is On Your Improvement
Probably the biggest benefit is that all of the teacher’s focus is on your improvement. There aren’t 4 other students in the room with each at their own level and with their own needs. You get all of the focus.
If you spend an hour in a classroom with 3 or 4 (or more) other students you’ll spend most of your time listening and not practicing your own skills. The teachers attention is divided among 3 or 4 other people (at least).
With 1-on-1 instruction, you get to ask all the questions and you get to have all of the practice. There are only two people in the room, you and me.
My focus will be on your sole improvement for the entire lesson! I can hear what you say and correct it. This is the fastest way to improve when compared to multi-student class rooms.
We Work On What You Need
Here is another benefit. I will always have something for us to work on. However, maybe you have something specific for your work, school or social life that needs particular attention.
Since you are the only student, the sole focus is on what you need. You would never be able to have that sole focus in a classroom with 3 or 4 other students. It wouldn’t be fair to dominate the class time that way. The other students probably wouldn’t put up with it either. In the 1-on-1 instruction scenario, the entire time can be devoted to your specific work, school or other needs.
For example, maybe you have a presentation at work that you must give in English. Maybe you have a report or presentation due at school. When you are the only student it is easy for you to get the time to work on what you need. With other students in the room, that just wouldn’t be possible.
Lessons Are More Customized
In addition to you having the ability to get what you urgently need worked on, I can also customize my lessons towards your needs.
For example, If I know that you need work in a particular area (such as “Th” sounds), I can tailor the lesson for those needs.
I’ll be able to see what we need to work on and focus more on those areas. All of this combines to give you more rapid progress. There is nothing better than learning from a native speaker, except getting one-on-one time with that native speaker!
