I'm not sure I'm understanding your post - but are you speaking of hiring a tutor for a child to help with school subjects? Often in our public schools, older students will tutor younger ones, or the teaches will sometimes take extra time to tutor a student who is having problems with a subject. Some wealthier people will hire a tutor for their child instead of sending them to public or private school.

I was talking about the hired tutor ( private ). That's good if the teacher can manage those kids after class.

I don't think getting dependent on their tutor has less probability to happen although it could happen with a really lazy kid who will not listen to his classroom teacher anymore and will just depend on his tutor to explain to him later and help him to his assignment. But on a larger scale, hiring Tutors can be very effective if a child is a slow learner. But to a bright child, hiring a tutor is no longer necessary. A tutor is hired to teach a child on a one-on-one basis. This gives the slow learner child the opportunity to understand what he missed in a regular class and to learn even more because there is more focus. However, this will give an extra expense for the parents, so I would rather just encourage my child to listen and pay attention to his classroom teacher in order to learn. Afterall, the tuition fee is very high and it's not worth all the money spend for his schooling if he is not learning from that school.

yep, and right now, some school is doing great with their strategies, when we met my kids teacher during parents meeting she told us that don't question why our female grade 3 was transferred at the back seat. This is because, the teacher wants to give enough room for the opportunities to learn for those slow learner kids and she position those in the front seat, and we appreciate that because, it means that our kids is on top of them.

That will depend on the tutor. If the tutor encourages the child, but doesn't do the work for them it can be very helpful. Sometimes if a child has a problem understanding what is taught in a classroom, they just learn in a different way from what is considered "normal" and a tutor can present the lesson in a different way in a one on one fashion to help them learn.
