Private tutoring has helped a lot to increase the parental choice and also it has improved the students’ achievements across the United Kingdom. Online tutoring and private tutoring have so grown up in the UK that people have started considering the tutoring process as a very important need. In most of the developing and developed countries, private tutoring has now become a major component of education which is highly acknowledged.
It has been estimated that the worth price of the global education technology sector has reached up to £45 billion, which will surely reach to £129 by the end of the year 2021.
It has also been estimated that the number of private tutors in the UK has so increased that around 10 thousand hours per month are spent by the tutors with their students to teach them. Every third person in the UK wants to become a private tutor just to earn extra bucks during the free time. Thus, the number of private tutors is increasing every day in the United Kingdom.
Private tutoring has now become the most popular and the most appropriate part-time job for most of the people across the UK. A person is not required to be a professional tutor, or he/she does not require to have a university degree to become a tutor. This is the reason that most of the people find private tutoring best for them as a part-time job for earning extra money. This fact can be explained with a very simple example. Consider there are ten levels in which the people have been classified according to the level of their knowledge. If a person is at level 6, there are a number of people on the level 7 to 10 who can be taught by the people on the level 6. Thus, it is very easy to become a tutor and assist the students who have problems. This has resulted in an increase in the numbers of private tutors across the UK. There are already so many private tutors across the UK that more than 10000 hours of classes are arranged per month for private tuitions. Still the number of private tutors keeps on increasing which has lead to increasing the hours of classes per month.
Basically, there are so many ways in which tutoring is carried out such as online tutoring, private tutoring and on-demand tutoring. People in the UK have implemented on different ways of tutoring according to their need and according to their comfort zone. These different ways of tutoring have become so famous that they have made a huge contribution to increasing the hours of tutoring per month in the United Kingdom. Finally, this has reached to more than 10000 hours of tutoring. In simple words, it can be said that a huge number of tutors are teaching and providing their tutoring services across the UK through different ways of tutoring. There are more than 6000 private tutors across the UK, who have been teaching the students at least one hour a day and hence they are teaching for more than 10000 hours a month. Further, the numbers of private tutors are increasing every day as the numbers of problems of the students are increasing.
The most common reason behind the rapid increase in the number of private tutors in the UK is that tutoring encourages the higher levels of thinking. Also, the tutoring motivates the tutors to learn more and more so that they can maintain the new role which helps to create a smarter nation. Another advantage of tutoring is that it increases the personal knowledge of a tutor regarding the related subject. There are many of the students across the UK who want to learn a lot regarding their field. Especially there are some college students who want to achieve more by gaining their knowledge about specific topics. This leads those college students to become private tutors and teach the school kids so that they can also learn more and they can gain experience in a particular field. The number of private tutors has increased because of this reason, in the UK and hence, the hours of tutoring per month have also reached to 10 thousand hours a month.
There are a lot of people in the United Kingdom who have lots of knowledge about a specific subject or a field, but they could not get into a related firm because of some reasons. The most common reason that they could not get into the firms is that they did not have enough capital to invest on. Such people have started to provide tutoring services across the UK regarding the same subject so that they could gain some experience as well as some capital to invest. There are a number of parents in the UK who are ready to pay hundreds of dollars to the private tutors to teach their children. The tutors searched for such parents who could pay them well and then finally they started to provide tutoring services. This has benefits for all the three (the students, the tutors, the parents). The tutors got enough money, and the students got enough knowledge. Also, the parents got satisfied that they have a good tutor for their children. This fact has promoted the tutoring in the UK so far that has resulted in more than 10000 private tutors in the UK. There are no chances for decreasing the number of private tutors in the UK in the future as there are a lot of people who need capital for different purposes. Tutoring is the best available option for such people as they have lots of knowledge about a particular subject or a specific field.
There has been explained a first-hand experience of a tutor who has achieved a tag of a private tutor and also the way has been explained how he achieved this tag:-
Mr Paul Wertheim is a CSE (Computer Science Engineering) tutor who is actually interested in assisting the computer science students so that they can easily maximize and network their knowledge in computer science and engineering department. He has so many study backgrounds along with computer science, such as cognitive science, mathematics, electrical engineering and physics. His duties include answering the questions of the students which concern with the topics explained in the class, assist the students with debugging and solving the problems, make a clear vision of programming assignments as well as assist the students in the computer labs. According to Mr Wertheim, “Tutoring was something he gave much thought to. However, he approached the professor; he understood tutoring as a golden opportunity for him to strengthen his skills.” Mr Wertheim had tutored some of the other subjects before, and he always found that all which matters is his own understanding and acceptance towards the subject. Mr Wertheim found teaching other very interesting experience and also he felt good when people understand their concept.
Mr Wertheim used to be a small level tutor who used to teach the people if needed. He also got frustrated some of the time when the students faced trouble in grasping the concept. His thoughts of making them understand in another better way, but still sometimes the students would not understand the concepts. Finally, after a lot of hard work, Mr Wertheim came to a conclusion that the students do not understand the concept sometimes because of the reason that the students were not accepting him as a private tutor. Mr Wertheim then finally decided to open his own classes where he could teach the students in a better way. The most important thing about this was that even the students would not think that Mr Wertheim is not professionally a tutor if he would have his own tuition classes. Mr Wertheim had done a lot of hard work for opening his own tuition classes. First of all, it took a bit longer for him to convince the students and the parents to come to his private tuition classes. Then he thought of advertising his private tuition classes in the newspapers, social media sites and many other places which helped him to get recognized by the people as a private tutor. Finally, when he got success to advertising his classes, the students started to seek admissions in his private tuition classes, and he started earning a lot more than before. Also, he changed the perception of the students about him. Now the students did not think that Mr Wertheim is not a private tutor, and he could not teach. The most important thing in opening the private tuition classes is that Mr Wertheim had the same level of knowledge, but still the students were learning the concepts more easily as the perception of the students had changed. Mr Wertheim has said that tutoring has taught him that perseverance and patience are the keys to tackling tough situations. So he tries to pass that along to others.
