Benefits of the Tutorial System: Introduction

scroll

Date of Publication: 30 November 2014

For these blog posts I thought I would write a series on the value of the tutorial system of teaching. Oxford and Cambridge, as I noted in an earlier post, are rightly famed for the tutorial system of teaching, which sees you taught by a tutor in groups no larger than two or three (and often one-on-one).

You can see my earlier blog post for more on the system in general, but it is one of the things which makes Oxford Summer Courses so special, we teach our courses through tutorials rather than lectures or workshops, making sure you get a true taste of Oxford’s education system!

In the next few blog posts I will cover some of the benefits of tutorials, including how they improve your essay writing skills, how they improve your self-confidence, how they help you better understand your subject, and how they help you learn to defend your argument. These are all different aspects of the tutorial system and each one deserves a blog post in its own right.

For further information have a read of How Tutorials at Oxford Summer Courses help improve your Essay Writing Skills
