You might also consider

In addition to group tutoring programs, there are other ways to provide your child with academic support. A few of the main options are outlined below.

Tutoring and learning centres: offer a variety of programs that make learning engaging and fun.

Individual tutoring programs: provide one-on-one individualized support for a range of subjects.

Education programs: offer rigorous out of school learning in areas such as science, STEM, computer programming, and robotics.

What tutoring programs do

Tutoring programs and classes provide academic support for kids of all ages. This includes students struggling with school work, those who simply want to improve, as well as high-achievers looking for enrichment.

These programs help students with homework, assignments, tests, and all other school work. They also help kids with their study skills, including but not limited to test-taking, note-taking, time-management, communication, concentration, organization, executive functioning, and more. 

Tutoring programs offer instruction in a variety of subjects, such as English, math, science, history, and writing. They provide support in these subjects, and often, personalize instruction to the needs of individual students. 

Group tutoring

Many tutoring and learning centres offer group tutoring. Unlike individual one-on-one tutoring, group tutors work with more than one student at the same time and place. The size of the group will vary with the program, with anywhere between two and ten students.

In group tutoring, session goals are designed for the needs of the group. That said, some individualized instruction is offered.

In the group format, tutors need to be skilled at meeting the needs and expectations of a wide array of students. In addition to providing instruction, they’ll often need to lead and facilitate using various strategies, such as asking questions, initiating discussion, and working through exercises and problems.

The benefits of group tutoring

While some students are best suited for one-on-one tutoring, group tutoring has a number of distinct benefits. Below, we discuss three of the main ones.

  • Engagement: being tutored in a group allows for peer-facilitated learning. This allows for a type of engagement which often isn’t possible with individual tutoring. 
  • Group learning: group tutoring allows students to share strategies for learning, while promoting cooperation and understanding. It provides opportunities for students to share experiences and learn from one another.
  • Building confidence: in a group, students can help each other and work together. Playing this active role in the learning of the group can reinforce and validate belief in a child’s academic abilities. It can also inspire a love of learning and build confidence and self esteem.

Small vs. large group tutoring

Many students can thrive learning in both small and large tutoring groups. There are, though, some potential advantages of smaller groups. They include (source: Scholars Canada: the benefits of small group tutoring):

Your child’s questions get answered
If your child shows a below average understanding of a subject, a small tutoring group is often preferable. The tutor will be able to answer their questions, and accommodate theirlearning style and pace better than in a large group.

It’s easier to ask for clarification
Some children may be too shy to ask their classroom teacher for clarification on the lessons. In a small group, instructors can assess your child’s learning needs, tailor a lesson plan for them, and encourage them to ask questions in a less intimidating setting.

Accommodating different learning styles
In a small group, it’s easier for the tutor to pinpoint your child’s strengths and weaknesses. By identifying areas that can be improved, the tutor can personalize lesson plans. To a great extent, they can follow your child’s lead regarding how they like to work.

Choosing the best tutoring program for your child

When looking for the right tutoring program, you’ll need to focus on what’s important to you and your child. This may include location, cost, instructional approach, and scheduling, among other things. 

We recommend meeting those who run the tutoring program. One great way to accomplish this is through the Our Kids Camp and Program expo, held each winter in Toronto. At our expo, you can speak directly with the directors and instructors of tutoring programs. If you’re interested, you can also speak with the staff of many other types of after-school programs and camps

For further guidance on choosing the right tutoring program for your child, check out the following Our Kids resources: How to choose a camp, Tutoring program reviews, and Educational programs.

Ensuring you’ve found the right program

After doing some initial research, you should narrow down a list of group tutoring programs potentially suitable for your child. Having done this, you’ll want to learn more about each of these programs to help you find a good match. Make sure to ask each program some crucial questions:

  • What subjects do you offer tutoring in?
  • When do the tutoring classes take place?
  • Who are your tutors and what are their credentials?
  • How many students are in each class, and what is the student-to-tutor ratio?
  • What is your tutoring approach?
  • What strategies do you use to engage students?
  • Do you offer any individualized instruction? If so, how much?
  • How do you assess student progress?
