It is well known to everyone that the primary and secondary level education in a country is a sign of better things to come in the future. Plenty of stress is being laid on the strengthening of education at these levels in India also. It is no surprise that various internationally established and acclaimed schools are opening their branches in different cities of India. There has also been sufficient effort from the part of the government, so that people are able to educate their children.
This has also given rise to the huge competition among the school students as well as the students of higher classes. As parents, it is further adding to their responsibilities to give an edge to their children in this stiff competition. The home tuition system has come as a respite for the parents as well as the children in present day scenario.
In such a method, people hire a teacher or tutor to teach different subjects to their kids. There can be the engagement of a single teacher, who can cover most of the subjects of the schools or colleges, or in many cases, there is only a single teacher for a single subject. Private tutor in the higher classes are of the later type, where they concentrate on a single subject. For the lower classes, mostly up to the 6-7th standards, many people engage a single teacher to cover different subjects.
In the single teacher concept, a private tutor is asked to come at a particular time according to the convenience of the teacher or the children. He or she then takes up the task of teaching different topics from all the subjects either on a single day or separately on different days. It can also be arranged by the teacher as to how the routine would be followed. Even, the duration of the tutoring can be decided by the home tutor as per the convenience and receptiveness of the students.
In many cities nowadays, the home tutors are being found in large numbers because it gives an additional source of income for many, who are otherwise engaged in the teaching profession. People with specialisation in various subjects but involved in non-teaching professions, are also coming forward for home tuitions in the metro cities. Gradually, such teachers for the purpose of tuitions are found in the smaller cities as well as parents are eager to give an additional help for their kids.
Many college going students are also seeking private tutor, so that they can grasp their subjects in a better and quicker manner. Mostly in the science subjects, the availability of the home tutors is becoming common, who take up a single subject. There was a phase where coaching centres and classroom tuitions were prevalent. But the social scenario has again got redirected towards home tuitions which was a norm in the historical dates where the wards of the rich and famous were able to afford private teaching and teachers. Such a concept of home tuition is being looked at as an advantage for the kids, and therefore people are seeking to have the best quality education for their kids to score good marks.
