Almost every student in Switzerland makes use of private tutoring once or even regularly during their school career. The reasons for deciding to get additional support are very diverse: Firstly, the requirements at Swiss educational institutions are rising and learners have to internalize more and more content in less and less time. Secondly, ordinary schools often do not offer room for individual support, for example if a child wants to solve additional tasks in a certain subject because he or she is particularly interested in it. Furthermore, competition for more advanced schools is also increasing due to the sharp rise in population. However, the capacity of these educational institutions is limited. Therefore, it is worthwhile investing in professional tutoring lessons at an early stage in a student’s school career in order to be able to achieve personal goals in a relaxed and serene manner.

There are numerous possibilities to receive supplementary education outside of school, to learn and to make even more progress in certain school subjects such as mathematics, French or English. One of these options is home tutoring, which takes place online via a video transmission tool, or traditional tutoring at a tutoring school. Why tutoring by students offers many interesting advantages for students and efficiently helps them to write good grades in the long run is the topic of this article.

Why Is Tutoring by Students Useful?

Tutoring by students offers a lot of crucial advantages for the students. As tutors are themselves studying the subjects they teach, they are able to competently address all subject-related questions at any time and provide students with expert help. Students are also still close to the Gymnasium and therefore have plenty of experience and advice when it comes to topics such as Gymi entrance exams, probationary periods, Matura papers, exam preparation, learning and stress management, and so on. The students can benefit enormously from this additional knowledge.

Tutoring by students of almost the same age can also be very enriching for future study choices. The teacherscan tell their tutoring students about their everyday life as students and thus give them a very authentic insight into life at a Swiss university or university of applied sciences, which they would otherwise not be able to obtain so easily. In this way, the students deal with their future at an early stage and are thus able to make extremely well-founded decisions.

Continuously Getting Good Grades Thanks to Tutoring From Students

When learners opt for tutoring, their goals are often to write better grades and master exams successfully and calmly in the long run. In addition to traditional tutoring schools, there is also the option of taking advantage of online tutoring at home. This concept offers some decisive advantages. Learners can, for instance, save the money and the time for a ride/walk to a tutoring school and put the time thus gained into more learning or free time. Furthermore, very little equipment is required for online tutoring. A stable Wifi access, an electronic device such as a computer, a laptop, a tablet or a smartphone, and headphones are needed – and you’re good to go.

Not only can online tutoring be flexibly and easily integrated into students’ daily routines and often very busy schedules, but it can also teach you how to use online tools and electronic devices sensibly along the way. This increases motivation and makes learning more enjoyable for the students. Online tutoring can take place anywhere – at home, at school, at the library or even in the park – which is why students feel even more comfortable and a stress-free learning atmosphere is created.

Online tutoring has been especially successful during uncertain times like the Coronavirus pandemic, as it could always take place, regardless of any measures taken by the Federal Council and even during the lockdown. This meant that students did not suffer any loss or interruption in their learning progress. It gave them an enormous amount of security, increased their motivation and contributed to the fact that they were always prepared for upcoming exams in the best possible way.


Online Tutoring by Students at the Tutoring Platform ATUTOR

On the tutoring platform ATUTOR, students can choose their desired tutoring subject out of numerous subjects such as mathematics, English, French, chemistry, physics and many more. The tutors on the tutoring platform all go through a rigorous application process prior to being hired, ensuring the best possible quality of instruction. At ATUTOR, tutoring students also benefit from an excellent price-performance ratio. Especially those who are interested in long-term tutoring are encouraged to take a look at the advantageous tutoring packages with which the price for a single lesson is reduced even further. All completed lessons are recorded and can be repeated later, if necessary, to further enhance the learning effect.

Tutoring promotes motivation and the fun of learning if it can be booked flexibly and spontaneously when the learners have time and are motivated to do so themselves. ATUTOR therefore offers the option of booking a lesson spontaneously and at short notice, for example if a very important exam is due the following day. In order to do this, students can simply create a profile on the ATUTOR homepage, select a subject such as mathematics, English or French, choose a suitable time slot, select a suitable teacher from the teacher selection and have the appointment confirmed. Payments for lessons can be made by invoice, PayPal or credit card.

ATUTOR not only offers online tutoring in subjects such as mathematics, English, French, chemistry and many more, but is also the ideal address when help is needed in other areas such as writing a scientific paper, acquiring convincing presentation techniques, writing bachelor and master theses as well as useful learning methods and strategies. Thus, it is of course also possible to parallelly receive tutoring lessons from different tutors and to benefit from possible synergies between the subject disciplines. In order for all students to be able to test ATUTOR’s professional tutoring services first without any obligation and to find out whether they can achieve their goals in the long term with this concept, a free trial lesson is available to all learners. In the context of this lesson, expectations and wishes for the lessons can be discussed right away.
