Article title: does tuition help or hinder?
This article is about whether tuition does help to pull up a student's grade of does it just a waste of time, effort and money. A survey shows that only a third of the parents said that tuition managed to help pull up their child's grade. Another study showed that too much private tuition could hurt performance and some who spent more time on tuition failed worse than others. Thus, we really need to look into the matter whether tuition really helps or not.
I feel that whether tuition helps or not will be based on the student him or her self. Some people can cope better with tuition as they have more practice and they can ask their tuition for help and maybe learn topics ahead of time so that they have a longer time to understand a topic with the help of both the school and the tuition center but some prefer to study by their own and spend more time revising on the past topics. However, for me, I feel that tuition will take up too much of my time and I feel that it is pointless to learn topics ahead of time if you cannot even catch on the topic before. Thus, I feel that tuition actually hinders, not help.
