Why VIII-IX-X are crucial?

1. Transformation from simple to complex concepts

The syllabus up to class seven is mostly observation based, and relatively simple to explain. It is during class eighth, ninth, and tenth that observations start getting explained as complex theories, represented by equations. For example, in chemistry, we move from simply explaining the difference between metals and non metals to complex equations. Similarly, in mathematics a lot of new concepts like coordinate geometry and probability are introduced.

The rate at which things start getting complex can be very unsettling for any student, and might make him or her lose interest in studies. We all are aware of students who performed very well in lower classes, but got miserable results later. It was not because they lost their intelligence or willingness to work hard. It was mostly because they could not keep up pace with new and complex concepts being introduced.

2. Not everybody is equipped to guide

Any reasonably well educated person will be able to handle the coursework in lower classes. But as the level goes up, it is crucial that the teacher not only has a deep understanding of the subject, but also ability to explain it to students in a lucid manner. Also, at this stage, students start forming notions about which career would they like to choose. There should be sufficient quality guidance provided on how to choose the career and what will it take to reach there.

3. These classes shape the future of the student

Most of the topics, that a student will have to study for entrance exams in XI and XII, are introduced in considerable detail during these three classes. We often hear that a student moving to XI and XII usually finds the syllabus very tough. It is mostly because concepts introduced in VIII, IX, X syllabus were not explained well, which forms the base for further studies in XI and XII classes.

Also, we often see a graduate or even a post graduate buying VIII, IX and X textbooks so that he or she may prepare for entrance exams or written tests for various jobs. Let us pick up syllabus of any higher level competitive entrance examinations like CAT, UPSC, Bank PO, etc. and we will see topics from these classes. Now imagine the kind of advantage, it would give to a student, if he or she has mastered the syllabus of VIII, IX, and X well.

So VIII, IX and X is crucial not only at board and school examinations level, but also any deficiency in studies at this level will continue to haunt the student forever.

Why do students need tuitions?

There are certain cases when extra classes or tuitions are required for class VIII, IX and X students:

  • When the number of children per class is high - a teacher finds it difficult to care for individual needs of a student. Weaker students find it difficult to move with the pace of the class. They are likely to need extra coaching to finish up everything the school is not likely to teach. An ideal number of students in a classroom is around 30, where as in practice it can, frequently, be seen that the number of students in the class is 50-60.
  • Parents do not have the time or are not equipped to give the students the necessary help at home.
  • Students who are already good and want that extra push to help them climb further up on the ladder.
  • Many teachers agree to the fact that a teacher in a classroom is trying to address the needs of a variety of students who have different level of grasping abilities. Even in good schools, only about 40% of the teachers use creative methods and are able to do justice with their job due to class size.

Why to choose Tutoring Organisations over Independent Tutors?

The following are the basic reasons why parents should choose tutoring organisations over independent tutors:

1. Accountability

Organised tutorials have invested more in their reputations than independent tutors. They have multiple students, and branches. They have invested considerable money in marketing and building brand. As a result, they have higher motivation to ensure students receive high-quality tutoring.

2. Quality and Collective Experience

Anybody can claim to be an independent tutor. It can be difficult and time-consuming for students to do the necessary research to determine if a tutor is qualified and dependable. In contrast, tutorials ensure the quality of its faculty through recruitment process by resume screening, interviews, calling references, and other tests to evaluate the tutor’s skill in teaching. Collective experience of teachers is leveraged to develop new pedagogic techniques. Organised tutorials also have established methods of teaching techniques and resources that result in a high-quality tutoring experience for students.

3. Finding a Good Fit

Ability to relate to student plays an important role in a teacher’s capability to effectively teach a student – and personality plays a large role in relating to a student. Finding an independent tutor with a complementary personality to the student can be a time-consuming process, and a tutoring relationship that does not work out for personality reasons requires students to start their search all over again. Organised tutorials on the other hand often have a variety of tutors that can teach a single subject, so finding a suitable match for students is much easier.

4. Focused Tutors

Independent tutors have to manage both the teaching and administrative aspects of their tutoring. This can be a distraction for independent tutors. It is not present in tutoring organisations. On the other hand, tutoring organisations handle all of the administrative aspects of the business while the teachers simply focus on teaching.

5. Dependability

When unexpected events come up for tutors such as sickness, moving, etc. working with a tutoring organisations allows students to continue their tutoring program without interruption. The student can be paired with another tutor who is already familiar with the student’s situation. Such unexpected events prevent an independent tutor from continuing their teaching, and disrupt student’s learning.
