It likely comes as no surprise to hear that your child’s classroom
sizes are increasing every year. While your child’s school likely
isn’t happy with the situation your child is placed in, the truth
is that they often aren’t in a position to ensure a sufficient
amount of teachers are present to keep class sizes down.
Prevent Your Child From Missing out on Valuable Instruction With
With no discredit to your child’s teacher as they are likely doing
the best they can, the fact is that with the ever increasing and
varied learning requirements of each student, matched with the
increase in distractions that result from over-filled classrooms,
they simply can’t ensure each student’s needs are addressed.
For this article, The Tutoring Center of Ocoee has
compiled some expanded information on the effects increasing class
sizes could be having on your child’s education and their
ability to learn, and how tutoring classes near Ocoee can
What Your Child Needs to Learn
We will start with the individual learning styles of every child.
These styles range from students who prefer to listen to recorded
information, students who prefer to see each lesson and transcribe
notes, students who prefer to interact with objects and feel more
comfortable with hands-on learning, to those students who prefer to
speak their thoughts aloud.
Now consider your child’s classroom environment. Each student sits
at their desk and watches their teacher write each lesson on the
chalkboard. There is a small window where students are able to ask
questions and seek clarification before the teacher clears the board
and the class moves on to the next lesson. This format is often
repeated until each lesson in the curriculum has been
completed and the time for exams arrives.
While this may be a great way for a visual learner, a student who
learns best from seeing a lesson written or printed, to absorb each
and every detail of the class and lesson it can often leave students
of the remaining learning styles to make-do with what they’re
Many concerned parents find that enrolling their child in tutoring
to be the most effective way of ensuring their child’s
learning style is addressed and that their child’s learning is not
being hindered by the teacher’s lack of time and attention.

can provide a learning space
designed to help your child achieve results and marks that are
representative of their true ability and learning potential, and not
simply a reflection of the limited time their teacher has available.
Distractions Throughout the Classroom
While the limit on the time each teacher has to teach is often
the primary and most known concern with increasing classroom sizes,
there is another aspect that comes from this which many parents
don’t always consider – classroom distractions.
A distraction in the classroom is usually considered to be a
cell phone or music player, however, it is the very limit of the
teachers time that can lead to students becoming distractions
themselves. Imagine the classroom experience mentioned above and
consider a child who learns best through more interactive methods.
While this student is interested in learning and wants to absorb each
lesson, the written lessons don’t always make sense, leaving them
to give up trying and become distracted by anything and everything
around them. Unfortunately, a distracted student often loves nothing
more than distracting others.
In this example, it can be easy to blame the student distracting
others, however in this example, this student is also somebody who
just wants to learn. In this example, they just aren’t being taught
in the best way possible that engages their learning style.
Teaching Students to Be Independent
This is another very solid reason why more and more concerned parents
just like yourself are turning to the benefits provided
through tutoring classes
, such as those available at The
Tutoring Center of Ocoee
. Tutoring classes can teach your child
to be independent and self-reliant. This is becoming more important
as class sizes increase and students are increasingly being left to
“fend for their own”. Fortunately, there has also been an
increase in the amount of credible, reliable, and authoritative
information available online to motivated and independent learners.
The Tutoring Center uses The Rotational Approach to Learning which
combines intense one-to-one instruction with a short period of time
to independently apply what was just learned. This helps your child
to learn to work independently by systematically combining individual
one-to-one instruction with independent application and mastery of
skills just learned.
If you know that your child is interested in learning, however, you
just aren’t able to understand why their grades don’t
reflect their true potential, speak with The Tutoring Center
