### PROS AND CONS OF PRIVATE MATH TUITION

**Pros**

Sometimes it could be difficult to choose whether to take a private math tuition class or join a group tuition. I would like to offer some of my advice regarding the selection. The tutor only has one student to teach in a private math tuition class. Thus, the tutor would be able to give the full focus to the student. In addition, the structure of a class and how a lesson is being delivery will be customized according to the pace of the student.

**Cons**

However, the cost of private math tuition is normally more expensive than group tuition class.
