Why it is a good idea to have a structured plan for a series of lessons

Tackling problems that have arisen in the classroom doesn’t happen overnight. Therefore, it is important that tutor and student work together to develop a plan of action that methodically deals with the difficulties that the pupil is experiencing. Without this, the tuition received by the runs the risk of being incoherent and patchy, which in turn could result in the student’s understanding being muddled and inconsistent.

Indeed, working within a well-thought-out structure allows the tutor to more easily gauge the progress that a pupil is making. Specific points in the tuition period can be pencilled in for checks on progression and the recapping or surmising of material and the overall learning experience is, therefore, made much more productive. Without good planning, it is more difficult to identify progress or weaknesses and therefore difficult to create new targets.

It may also be the case that a student has a variety of topics which must be covered or a topic that is particularly wide in scope. In this instance, a lack of structure could mean that insufficient time is allotted to covering certain areas and the student may be left ill-prepared.  

Having a long-term teaching plan also reduces the risk of repetition, which could be both boring and a waste of time for the student. An overview means that potentially unnecessary repetition can be spotted and a more efficient way of delivering the teaching decided upon, whilst variety is key to keeping lessons stimulating and enjoyable and therefore productive.
