Hi utdad,

Just happened to read your post. Few years ago, I also had a student who started to fail his Maths since P2. I started to coach him from P4 and he dislikes Maths and totally no confidence. So I worked hand in hand with his mother, we started revision from P3 work onwards and slowly built his foundation & also confidence. After all the hard work, he managed to get A in PSLE which we were very happy with it. Another good point is that he really very hardworking too. I gave him a lot of work to do but he never complained at all.

So, dun give up and slowly build his confidence. I am sure that your son can make it. No worries. All the best.

I would think a small group is better than private. 1-to-1 seems boring. Especially if the child cant connect with the tutor. I'm saying this through my ger's opinion. She seems to want to do more in a group. (She told me she does it because everyone is doing! ) hahahahah

I guessed in a small group of not more than 5, the tutor is able to have all the kids doing their work and not dream off. I tried centres with classroom setting. My daughter always goes to lala land. Just like in school! Private tuition for her she told me she is bored!!!!

anyway glad to be able to put her somewhere is learn and enjoy now! :)

I would prefer my boy to go for group tuition too! He will have the opportunity to interact with other students and meet new people. And the most crucial part is group tuition provides a supportive environment where the students can learn from the questions posed by their peers, correcting their misguided judgements and reaffirming what they know. He will be able to hear other peoples' opinions and listen to questions he may not have thought of. Individual tutoring is too boring for him. I guess he will be drifting off most of the time :slapshead:

You make some excellent points in favour of group tuition. However, there are some children who are too easily distracted in a group, even when the group is small.
