During the process of learning, there are always questions — concepts you don’t understand and curiosities you want satisfied.
There’s no better opportunity to have those questions answered when it’s just you and the teacher. There’s no other students to appease, and the entire learning experience can be geared towards your needs. Many times, this benefit of customization can outweigh the greater expertise or curriculum of other educational deliverables for wider audiences (i.e. class, book, lecture).
The next time you have a tutor, mentor, or anyone willing to teach you something, I would recommend:
- Ask all the questions you have.
- Be grateful for the chance to learn one-on-one.
