Though, it has been criticised on many grounds like it aggravates inequality in society, acts as an impediment to proper functioning of the government education system and that it has failed to improve the performance of the students for which it is meant for, it offers some unique benefits to the students as discussed below.

Private tutors act as supplementary educational support to such students, thereby reducing the cost of the education significantly whereas providing quality education at the same time.
  • Eighth, students are free to choose their private tutor and this freedom helps them to select a tutor under whose teaching the full potential of the students could be flourished.
