A private tutor is an individual who provides one-on-one academic instruction or coaching to students, usually outside of a formal school setting. Private tutors can help students with specific subjects, such as math or English, or provide general study and organisational skills. Families, schools, or organisations may hire private tutors to supplement classroom instruction, help students prepare for standardised tests, or provide specialised instruction for students with learning disabilities or other special needs.
