A private tutor is a private instructor who
teaches a specific educational subject or skill to an individual
student. Such one-on-one attention allows the tutor to improve the
student's knowledge or skills far more rapidly than in a classroom
setting. Tutors are often privately hired and paid by the student, the
student's family or an agency. Many are used for remedial students or
others needing special attention; many provide more advanced material for
exceptionally capable and highly motivated students. Tutelage is the
process of being under the guidance of a tutor. Tutoring also occurs when
one adult helps another adult student to study a specific course or
subject that he/she is taking to get a better result. The adult can also
let the student work on his own, and can be there if the student has any
Academic Coaching is an evolution of Mentoring applied to academics.
Mentoring implies the student is an empty vessel into which knowledge is
poured. Coaching involves a more collaborative approach, assuming the
student is already in the "game" of learning.

Coaches help students learn how they best learn and how to operate in
an academic environment. Tutors help students learn the material in
individual courses while coaches help students learn how to be
successful in school. In college, that includes such topics as: study
skills, time management, stress management, effective reading,
note-taking, test-taking, and understanding how to use a syllabus.
Academic Coaches meet with the student regularly throughout the
semester, usually once a week. Coaches work with students in all kinds
of situations, not just those who are struggling academically. Some
highly motivated, high-achieving students will have a coach to improve
their learning efficiency.
In Home Tutoring
In Home Tutoring is a form of tutoring that occurs in the home.
Tutoring is receiving guidance or instruction by a tutor. Most often
the tutoring relates to an academic subject or test preparation. This
is in contrast to tutoring centers or tutoring provided through after
school programs. The service most often involves one on one attention
provided to the pupil.
In the U.S., students tutoring other students at the same or within
close proximity of age or grade level. When peer tutors are trained in
the proper methods, strategies and protocols of tutoring, the evidence
is clear that peer tutoring is both academically and cost effective,
rendering numerous benefits for both the tutor and the tutee.
