They are not good in my perspective. Tuitions divert the attention of the students. If the school is providing them good education then there is no need to go for private tuitions. Many tuition centres are just money making machines.
Today parents want to show off that our children are going to a coaching centre where they pay hefty fees. But they don’t care about the quality of education their children get at these tuition centres.
For some students the only goal is to complete the syllabus. So for them tuitions are not necessary. But there are some students who need to know beyond syllabus and even beyond their capability. So it is here the need for tuition centers arises.
In school a teacher cannot deliver his/her lecture with satisfaction because of time constraints. At private tuition centres a teacher can give as much time as is required because there is no permanent timetable for him.
Parents want their children to get quality education . But you don’t get that in schools particularly government owned schools. So they start looking for private tuition centers.
Tuitions are necessary for career oriented students.Tuition centers play a key role in providing education. There should be proper monitoring of these centres so that they deliver quality education.
Tuitions give us a detailed description of the subjects which is not possible in 45 min class in schools. But tuition centres should not replace schools as the primary source of education are schools.
It’s a burden for a child to manage school and private tuitions. If the school is providing excellent education, there’s no need for tuitions. Today spoon feeding is forced on students. Whenever they face difficulties in studies they ask for private tuitions.
Private tuitions are good for those who’re weak in studies and need some additional guidance.
I’m against tuitions. I believe proper schooling and self study from schools can create curiosity for knowledge in a child. The basic purpose of education is and should remain knowledge not marks.
Private tuitions aren’t good because school is the basic place where we learn. But they have become a means of earning money. Nowadays they are left with only one work that is the proof people have passed so and so classes. If schools give proper education then there would be no need for tuition centers.
We don’t know when there will be a strike or curfew and in these conditions the schools have to be closed. Now a student can’t study all by himself. He needs help and this comes from tuition centers.
Tutions are very important for us. Students also take private tuitions seriously than schools.
