Tuitions are a time when the students have to not only study at home, but they also have to go out and study again. There are some places where the tuitions are held at the school by one of the teachers o the tuitions may be in another place where the child has to go after school.

Though people think that tuitions are good, there are a lot of disadvantages of tuitions. This article lists some of the major disadvantages of tuitions over the children who do not attend tuitions.

Waste of time:

This is a waste of time because the child learns almost the same things that are taught in the school. This can lead to reinforced learning according to some people, but the truth is that the child is simply wasting the time, when the child could have studied or learnt something useful in that time. Other than the waste of time in the time that is being spent in the tuitions, the child has to travel to and from the place of the tuitions and this is another reason for the waste of time. The child will be travelling during the prime time and this time could have been put to better use by the child, if the child had been studying in the home or school.

Too much work:

The child will be having a lot of work to do. This can cause the child to become depressed. There is so much of work to the child that the child will not be able to concentrate. This is similar to what is said in the proverb that too many cooks spoil the broth. The child will not know what to learn as there are many instances where what is being said in the school is very different as to what is being said in the tuitions as the teachers in each of these places will be different. Finally, the child will become confused and this will cause the average marks that are scored to reduce, missing the whole point of the tuitions.

Child loses independence:

The best children are the ones who are self made. If the child goes for the tuitions, there is no time for self study and it is as if the child is being spoon fed all though the education. This can lead to deprivation of the chance for the child to be a self made person who is independent. The child will become dependent for the education because of the tuitions. This is again against the whole aim of educating the child. The parents should ensure that their children are free and are able to be independent people who are able to study on their own.


As the child goes to the tuitions and then comes home to study, there will not be any time to rest or relax. The child has to get up the next morning, get ready for school and rush. This is like a routine life that becomes mechanical. Though the child who is not able to do well in studies needs such motivation, putting every child through this can lead to the child being overworked and finally, the child will not be able to achieve much because of the mental tiredness. This is another reason or disadvantage of the tuitions.

I fully agree with this and implemented in my studies as well as my son. Main issues are where teachers in school dont teach properly and recommend tution to thier parents and commercialisation of tuition business. Child should be open to decide what he/she want to learn then only he can develope his key skill and we can finalise his/her preference of studies. Sultan 2010-12-14 07:38:28 476
yaa in totally accept your wording,you are absolutely correct my friend visit 3 tuition a day.. i was astonished when he said. but never he had score a good markz in the examination.i hope he is in mentasl tiredness.. and he needs some rest so that he can buck up for the future harsh vardhan 2011-11-30 02:37:45 1003
I fully agree with this. I have to take 3 hours of tuition or more everyday. My tuition always prepares tuition classes for me that I don't even know about. She also forces me to have that tuition without asking me wether I want it or not. Eldrick Lim 2013-06-05 18:15:43 1828
yes,i fully agree with this.People thinks that by going tuition children learn something but they are wrong.It disturbs and effect the growing mind of children.Today parents are so busy that they don't have to see the studies of their children and that is the region students are joining the tuition and wasting their time without any region.

Yes, u r absolutely correct because now a days tutions teachers make teaching as there business they take studient's studies as there extra work and taught them as they get in school nd they just make money business bcoz of tutions they get more money as compare to schools nd most of younger teachers they force children in school to come for tutions .so conclusion is that tutions are not good this increasing tutions point should be decreased and student should change themselfs and be a good listener Prerna Gupta 2013-06-19 06:13:25 1843
ooh yess !!! but its for regularity .... i mean 2 say home tutions r good arent they!!!! apoorva dubey 2013-08-15 11:37:04 1908
yep! right.i wasn't able to concentrate. I've even planned of commiting a suicide rohit 2013-08-28 02:13:11 1916
I totally agreed that tuition is so bad for the children because they call the children free time and the children could not rest well. The tuition also call the children for about 5 or 6 hours and the children can concentrate the lesson anymore. This also mean that the tuition is also bullying the children.

really . children don't have independence. i want to do studying on my own, in my own way not by tutions !! But still meritnation and Khan academy, are okay because it has online videos which we can see trough ! theese are the only tutions which all the kids/students like!!! Swastika 2014-06-04 03:47:44 2060
really tution is a wate of time because come only for fees and to sit not for child iamthebest:) 2015-11-09 07:37:53 2204
yes,the private tutions should be banned as it adds only extra burden on the students. The concept of coaching classes or private tutions is to aid the weaker students but over the time it has became a business.Also it has became a fashion and tradion. pritam 2016-02-10 23:10:58 2217
this private tuition wastes our time we whole day work in school about 8 hrs.Indeed i agree that tuition does more harm than good.Generally students who need tuition are those who are weaker in a certain subjects.if you pay attention in class and do weekly revision on your own i dont see why there is a reason for you to attend tuition classes.Consequently,students will not listen in class and have no motivation to study and think that they can rely on their tuition classes to clear their doubts and questions priyansh gupta qacs 2016-04-25 02:37:00 2229
i agree. i spend 2 hours for tuition each day. it helps me in my grades but stress me out. i wouldd like to study on my own for a while. but my parents never allow it because the only thing they want is me to get higher grades than OTHERS. Shara 2016-07-16 09:59:11 2237
i totally agree with this. Parents should read this article and see the disadvantages. I am fed up of my mom and dad saying the same thing again and again Mofhgfrh 2016-08-17 07:50:18 2240
A nice article describing the worst conditions of ill fated tuitioned students. Beant Kaur 2016-12-31 05:16:24 2256
waste of time is not a stable point but overall it is a good article IRSYAD SMAN 2017-03-06 00:47:13 2258
I too believe that tuitions harm children, my kids have too faced the problem their rank in class went down due to tuitions. I immediately stopped their tuition and guided them by myself which helped them in increasing their marks, knowledge and rank in the class. Kids are also beaten up in the tuitions for even silly mistakes which is also not correct. Anupama Saha 2017-07-02 00:54:53 2266
Yes....I totally agree with it. I always feel depressed and even feel like committing suicide. Yet I don't know how to convince my parents about it. please help Anurag Sawant 2017-11-01 11:04:44 2286
yes....I too totally agree with this.....I am a student of class 10 and till now i have not gone to any kind of tution.......its due to selfstudy which I am doing due to which i am always getting 94%-96%rn kaumudi 2018-01-14 17:28:41 2289
