Why Group Tutoring Works!

Here at the Global Geography Academy the majority of our packages offer tutoring in small groups. Why is this? Put simply, it is clear that group tutoring offers many proven educational benefits that simply cannot be attained through traditional one-to-one tutoring.

Despite our students maintaining their anonymity in our online tutor sessions, they are able to participate fully and see responses from fellow students when we participate in online quizzes and polls. This allows students to learn from the responses of others, while anonymous contribution to group tasks helps develop academic self-confidence.

Students also learn to shape their ideas and opinions when learning in a group and seeing the views of others facilitates learning about alternative perspectives and views. Group problem solving tasks permit meaningful contribution and a sense of contribution and fulfilment as well as providing valuable experience of group problem solving, an essential employability skill. Group learning and learning from peers has also been shown to assist with improved levels of understanding and retention of knowledge.

These are just a few of the numerous examples that confirm the myriad benefits of group learning; at the Global Geography Academy we are committed to helping every student fulfil their potential and that is why we are committed to offering as wide a range of tutoring packages as possible, with a strong emphasis on group learning models.

Let us end by leaving the final word to Helen Keller: "Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much".
