At ClassTutor, we understand that online group sessions can be an effective way for students to learn, and studies have shown that group learning can have a significant positive impact on academic performance.
Group tutoring provides a cost-effective alternative to expensive one-on-one provision, and it is more effective than individual tuition according to research on social learning theory conducted by Vygotsky in the 1970s. Mixed-ability groups can also be advantageous.
The Benefits of Online Group Learning
We are proud to offer group sessions to our students because we believe that learning with peers can enhance the educational experience.
When you have more people in the group, the conversation flows more naturally, and students tend to feel more comfortable sharing their thoughts and opinions.
It can also be an excellent opportunity for students to learn from each other and benefit from a diversity of perspectives.
A Comfortable Learning Environment for Students
Another significant benefit of group sessions is that they are more affordable, which means parents can get more value for their money by booking more sessions or signing up for multiple subjects.
We understand the importance of making education accessible, which is why we offer a free trial session for each subject, so parents and students can see if group sessions are the right fit for them.
Tips for Making the Most of Group Learning
Participating in group learning sessions can be a great way to enhance your educational experience and learn from your peers. Here are a few tips for making the most of your group learning sessions:
Come prepared with questions: Before each session, take some time to review the material and write down any questions you have. This will help you stay engaged and make the most of the time you spend with your tutor and classmates.
Actively participate in discussions: Share your thoughts and opinions during group discussions. By participating actively, you'll not only learn from your peers but also help them learn from you.
Take notes: Jotting down key points or concepts during the session can help you remember the material later on. It's also a great way to stay engaged and focused during the session.
Listen actively: When others are speaking, be sure to listen actively and show that you're engaged in the conversation. This will help create a more collaborative and supportive learning environment.
By following these tips, you can make the most of your group learning sessions and get the most value out of your time with ClassTutor.
Affordability: Getting More Value for Your Money
Our tutors are highly qualified and experienced, and they love teaching in groups. They are committed to delivering a high-quality education experience, no matter the class size or subject.
High-Quality Tutors for Every Subject and Class Size
Learning in groups can also help students build confidence and social skills, which are valuable assets in both academic and personal settings.
Building Confidence and Social Skills through Group Learning
At ClassTutor, we firmly believe in the power of group learning to help students thrive academically and socially. Our group tutoring sessions provide a supportive environment where students can learn from each other and build important skills like collaboration and communication.
While some students may initially feel unsure about participating in a group, we have found that with the right guidance and support, they often discover newfound confidence and enthusiasm for their studies.
We understand that individual attention is important, which is why we offer private chat sessions with tutors to address any specific concerns or questions that students may have. This way, students can still receive personalised support while benefiting from the unique advantages of group learning.
The Importance of Asking Questions in Group Learning
Lastly, we understand that students may be at different stages of their learning journey, which is why we have the flexibility to adjust class sizes to accommodate different needs.
This means that students who need extra support can join alternative classes to catch up on a subject, while those who are more advanced can join more challenging classes to progress further.
In summary, group learning is an effective way to enhance the educational experience, and we believe that our online group sessions provide a positive and engaging learning environment for all students.
By taking advantage of these benefits and engaging fully in the sessions, students can make the most of their learning experience and achieve their academic goals.
