There have been quite a lot of debate going on regarding home tuition, or even tuition classes altogether. Some parents think it is important to get their kids a private tutor so they can perform better in school, whereas some parents believe that extra tuition classes actually put too much pressure on their children.

Well, as parents we want our children to have the best. Hence, it is confusing when there are so many different opinions out there telling you what is best. It is a never ending debate when it comes to this.

However, I think it is very important for us to break it down for you so you can get a better insight and make the right decision for your children. 

In order for you to get a better picture, here is a list of pros and cons of home tuition for students in Malaysia. 


1. It can be expensive.

In this current economic situation, everything has increased in price. We understand that it is difficult to juggle so many things financially, and paying for a home tutor can be an extra burden. If you are having difficulties to pay for tuition fees, you can opt to send your children to extra lessons organised by schools, or even recommend your children to join a study group with their classmates or consult their school teachers when they are having trouble in their homework or studies.

2. Children may become too dependent.

There are some people who are against private tuition is because they believe that their children will become a victim of a "spoon-fed" education. They feel children should overcome their schoolwork on their own without getting too much guidance. This may be true for some cases in which the students are having little to no trouble in school, but it may not be true to those who are struggling to cope. A good way to overcome this problem is by discussing with the home tutor to give your child some time to figure things out before guiding them through every step. I am sure this also depends if you have found yourself a good private tutor. Here is how to find a good home tutor for your children to save the hassle.

3. Children may feel too overwhelmed.




As much as we like to deny it, our children have many responsibilities to tend to. With their very tight schedule of school, homework, co-curricular activities, extra art or music lessons etc, they may be even more overwhelmed if we add in tuition classes into their timetable. They may feel burnout and may not have the energy to focus on whatever that is going on during these home tuition lessons. A good balance for this problem is to only get a home tutor for them if they are having difficulties in certain subjects or topics, instead of forcing them to attend home tuition classes for every subject. Pick out the few subjects that they are having trouble with, and focus on those.

Pros :

1. Home tutors can provide one-to-one attention.

If your child is really having difficulties in their studies, they may require one-to-one attention in order to be guided through the parts that they are specifically having trouble with. Hence, a home tutor can cater to their specific needs and give them the guidance in the areas that is needed. This way, your child do not have to feel embarrassed by what he or she does not understand, but rather, can work together with the tutor to get a better understanding of the subject at hand. Even if your children are taking a much slower time to comprehend the topics, a home tutor who is experienced and dedicated can guide them through according to their own pace.

2. Private tutors can lessen the burden of parents.

If you are a parent, whether working or not, there are so many other things you need to do. From household chores to job responsibilities or running errands, there is already so much on your plate. Hence, a private tutor can help you lessen your worries about your child's studies, so you can focus better on other things. Besides, home tutors are much more experienced and knowledgeable in terms of the school syllabus, and can teach your children the best way to understand their subjects and even prepare them for their exams.

3. It is convenient.

The most important benefit of getting your child a private tutor is that it is very convenient. When it comes to fetching your children to and fro for extra tuition classes out of your house, it wastes both your time and your children's time. When you get a home tutor, the tutor comes all the way to your house, so you can save time and the hassle of going through the traffic. Besides, when your child is attending classes from home, the parents can get a better idea if the tutor is well-equipped or suitable for your children's needs or not. This can help you monitor the learning process of your child and the tutor. If you are willing to spend more time, you can even learn some tips from the private tutor on how you can contribute to helping your children in their studies.

I hope these pros and cons of getting a private tutor can give you a better idea of home tuition. Always keep in mind that despite having its pros and cons, it is crucial to keep a balance in terms of your decision for your children.
