7 Reasons Why You Should Not Send Your Child To Private Tuitions.

7 reasons why parents should say NO to private tuitions

Private tuitions are making a fortune these days. Unreasonable competitiveness and the pressure to outdo others in
academics has seeped into  primary classes too! Parents are either willing or forced to pay the tuition fees with a
hope that it will benefit the students in getting better grades,  hence a better job in the future (‘better’ in terms of
salary, of course!). Sure enough, this might show results in the short run but could be detrimental in the long run.

Here are 7 reasons why parents should say no to private tuitions:

1. Students don’t learn. They just memorize.
Learning is the process of acquiring new knowledge rather than having it impressed upon a student’s mind by tutors.
Instead of learning concepts holistically, they often end up memorising them just for the sake of doing well in

2. Adds to the growing pressure on students.
It is not a secret that students are constantly under peer pressure to perform well in tests. However, taking extra
tuitions only increases this pressure, as parents and the society simply raise their expectations.

3. Thinking goes out of the window.
Thinking forms an important part of learning. There is no point in learning if one doesn’t take time to assimilate
information. In the words of Albert Einstein, “The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge, but imagination”.
Very often, students going for tuitions just do things mechanically and end up learning very little, effectively.
They fail to exercise the brain and generate new ideas.

4. Double-sided confusion
Parents who favour the idea of sending their kids to tutors usually get them enrolled into a tuition for every subject.
As a result, students are excessively spoon fed by their tutors. They get confused between the stuff taught at school
by the teacher, and the instruction of the  tutor. This unwanted confusion may kill the student’s interest in the subject.

5. Marks aren’t the only thing in life.
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Very often, students end up spending a lot of time in tuitions, missing
out on crucial opportunities to acquire skills outside the realm of academics. Therefore, they miss out opportunities
to acquire skills outside the realm of academics that can help them going forward in life. They also end up losing
their personality to a very great extent.

6. Your kids can fall sick.
Students who go to private tuitions right after school end up spending a lot of time behind closed doors. This can
negatively affect health. Food habits and timings are disrupted. Headaches, dizziness, nausea, watery eyes, body
-ache due to exhaustion are common complaints.
7. Curiosity is submerged in plain fear.
Learning is a lifelong process and curiosity, a characteristic intrinsic to man, is the impetus. However, students who
take private lessons tend to learn because of fear. The fear of the society judging them by their marks, of
disappointing their parents and of course, peer pressure. Eventually, students get demotivated, develop a negative
attitude towards learning altogether and end up losing curiosity, the single-most important weapon of mankind.

One cannot really opiniate that taking private tuitions is evil. Some students do require a little help but very often
students who sign up for such tuitions get pushed into the rat race. Mugging up to score marks takes over and the
learning process takes a backseat. It is not what one learns but how one learns that determines how much one can
use those learnings in his/her life.
Do you think private tuitions give children undue stress?
