Many parents believe that one-to-one 11+ tuition is superior to group 11+ tuition, but that’s a common misconception. In fact, group tuition has many advantages over one-to-one sessions.
In this informative and engaging video, I delve into the many advantages of healthy competition and peer motivation in inspiring and motivating our children. Drawing from my extensive research and experience working with hundreds of students at Geek School Tutoring in small and effective groups, I explore how a competitive learning atmosphere can spur children to new heights of academic and beyond achievement.
We live in a highly competitive world where standing out from the crowd can be the difference between success and obscurity – and this is a pinnacle part of the 11 Plus exams. Therefore, it’s never too early to instil these valuable qualities in our children. When children participate in healthy competition, they learn to be resilient, hard-working, and goal-oriented, key skills that will serve them well personally and professionally.
With peer motivation, students see others achieving and are driven to keep up and outdo their classmates. This creates a positive feedback loop where students push each other to greater heights, achieving more together than they would alone. In a world where collaboration is key for success, these are invaluable skills that can set students apart.
So, if you want to give your child the very best chance of success, consider the benefits of healthy competition and peer motivation, and provide them the opportunity to learn these essential skills early on.
But that’s not all – I believe in cultivating independence and self-reliance in children’s work, providing them with the necessary skills to succeed in the classroom and in the wider world. I discuss some of the most effective teaching techniques and strategies for encouraging children to take ownership of their learning, allowing them to discover and explore new areas of interest at their own pace.
To supplement this, I also share some valuable insights into the benefits and best practices for group tuition based on my work at Geek School Tutoring. By leveraging the power of group learning and collaboration, parents can provide their children with an immersive and supportive environment in which to grow and excel academically.

Group or One-to-One Tuition: Which is Right for Your Child?
What’s better for your child: Private Tuition or Group Classes
Being a parent, you want your child to succeed and get the best education possible. Thus, choosing between one-to-one 11 Plus tutoring can be difficult as you want to ensure you are choosing the most effective approach for your little one. One-to-one tutoring can provide your child with the individual attention they need, allowing the tutor to identify their strengths and weaknesses and develop a customised learning plan.
On the other hand, group tutoring provides a social setting for children to learn alongside others and develop communication skills. Ultimately, it’s important to consider your child’s personality, learning style, educational needs and preferences to determine the most suitable approach.
As you would have seen in the video, group tuition has more benefits than you thought. Firstly, the presence of peers creates a competitive yet healthy learning environment that pushes your child to succeed and excel. Additionally, in a group class environment, tutors are able to give more focused instruction to each student, creating a tailored learning experience that greatly benefits your child’s education.
