It is extremely common among students, especially primary and secondary students. When asked if tuition is really necessary, different people have different opinions. From my point of view, tuition can help a student to learn and develop a lot more than normal school studying hours. But is it really necessary?
Tuition was not necessary in the past as education was not so emphasized. But nowadays, many students prefer to go tuition because they believe it can help them achieve success and also allows them to gain more knowledge. When having tuition, students get to learn in smaller groups or on a one-to-one basis. This is certainly advantageous to timid students as they get the opportunities to speak up and ask questions. Further more a student get more personal attention and develop good study skills with their tutors’ help.
The greatest and best thing about tuition is that ii doesn’t divide the students based on their grades and ability. I.e. Tuition is suitable for all types of students. A student who consistently scores well might seek tuition to main their grade. Average-scorers would wish to improve their grade. And weaker students would want to pass the exams. Tuition could be a necessity to one, but a choice to the other. Tuition greatly depends on individual’s objective. Another thing is that tuition does not restrict to academics within the syllabus. It allows students to prepare for competitions, technical skills such as microsoft office. It saves time in learning, thus allowing student to juggle non-curricular activities.
The only disadvantage or danger of tuition is that it is time consuming i.e. With so much to juggle, students will hardly find time to rest. In conclusion whether tuition is necessary depends on the students themselves. Thus, parents have to decide with the right perspective instead of peer influence. Tuition is the supporting pillar of education and it is no doubt still a necessity . At least, at the moment.
