Hive Mind – Get them buzzing with confidence in our group tutoring sessions!

It’s true. Many parents and carers as me about one to one tuition; they often feel that their child needs close focused work in order to make progress.

I get it. It is easy to feel that your child may need additional support that they may not get in a large school class. It is also true that whilst individual tutoring has long been a popular option, group tutoring, or tuition, is emerging as a powerful tool in helping students achieve their full potential. In this blog, we delve into the benefits of group tutoring and explore how it can positively impact students’ learning experiences.

1. Collaboration and Peer Learning

One of the standout advantages of group tutoring is the opportunity for collaboration and peer learning. In a group setting, students can engage with their peers, exchange ideas, and learn from each other’s perspectives. At Conexus, our students enjoys this environment because it is informal – they realise they are not on their own. Our small group session support students to gain new insights by discussing concepts and solving problems together. Research has shown that small group learning can increase understanding and retention of material, as students often feel more comfortable asking questions and seeking clarification from their peers.

2. Enhanced Communication Skills

Participating in group tutoring sessions encourages students to talk about their thoughts and ideas effectively. They feel seen. After the isolation of lockdown that many of our students talk about, being in a group fosters their development of strong communication skills. The informal learning atmosphere also helps students with socialisation with other students they may not see at their school; it’s about learning together. I always like the fact that students make new friends at Conexus. Group tutition helps build positive relationships with others in a safe environement.

3. Cost-Effectiveness

We all know about the impact of rising prices and the cost of tuition can be expensive. At Conexus we believe in quality and value. Group tutoring offers a cost-effective alternative to individual tutoring, making it more accessible to a wider range of students. By sharing the cost among group members, students can receive quality instruction at a fraction of the price of one-on-one sessions. We are levelling the playing field and making excellence available to all .

4. Increased Motivation and Accountability

The mixed nature of group tutoring makes learning fun. Education should be something that happens where students can be an active participant, rather than a passive receiver of information. Small group participation impacts the collective learning experience which motivates students to stay engaged and actively contribute to the sessions.

5. Tailored Learning Experience

Despite being in a group setting, group tutoring sessions can still offer personalised learning experiences. Conexus tutors excel in managing group dynamics and tailoring their teaching methods to suit the individual learning styles of each student. By providing targeted instruction and personalised feedback, tutors guarantee that every student receives the necessary support to overcome limiting beliefs and apply their knowledge in the exam or classroom.

UK Government Statistics

According to the UK Department for Education, the use of tutoring services has been on the rise in recent years, with a notable increase in demand for group tutoring. Government statistics reveal that group tutoring programs have been successful in improving academic outcomes, particularly in subjects such as mathematics and English. The collaborative nature of group tutoring aligns with the government’s emphasis on promoting collaborative learning environments and fostering peer-to-peer support among students.
