Students learn better from individual attention. Prep courses curriculum was designed around the “average” student as it has to be for a class of 20 students. However, not all students are average. Students who started under that average often got lost, as the pace of the class zoomed by them. On the other hand high-performing students looking to break into the 90th percentile are bored to tears. Often students fall into both camps — lost on one topic while completely bored in an area they had mastered. That contrasted with my work in one-on-one tutoring environments. When students work with a personal instructor, they move at the students’ pace. This allows students to focus on areas where they need the most help leading to a more efficient, and effective test prep experience.
