What are private lessons?
Private lessons are every effort of the teacher to communicate information to the student outside the school for a fee
On the other hand, the student makes an effort to receive information and a lot of time outside the school day, which causes pressure on the student.
But did the idea of private lessons arise from a vacuum or is it the result of teachers' failure to explain. In the classroom?
To answer this question, let's find out why private lessons are born.
Why private lessons have emerged and penetrated Egyptian society
Here the views of the Egyptian street are divided
There are those who believe that private lessons have emerged as a result of several reasons, including
Increase the number of students per class
Where the student density in schools reaches 50 and 70 students per class
which makes the teacher distracted during the explanation because of the many questions that the students ask on the one hand
And the student's mind is distracted while the teacher explains their friends' questions
And their different views in the material and the loud voice because of the large number on the other hand
Some teachers failed to explain and were unable to communicate information
This is due to the poor evaluation tests that the student undergoes before entering the faculties of education
The weakness of the training provided by the Ministry of Education and its teachers and their incompatibility with modern technological progress
Difficulty of some curricula
Failure to apply interactive classroom education
The teacher becomes the only contact for information.
The student's lack of effort in obtaining information makes him forget it quickly
Some students are used to taking information from more than one source
Length of schooling in public schools resulting in student unconcentration
Some students used to private lessons from a young age.
Parents are busy in their work due to poor economic conditions which make them unable to follow children at different levels of education

because of the small number of students in one group unlike the classrooms
Parents are not obliged to follow their children
And that's because the teacher in private lessons plays this role.
Poor economic conditions

Therefore, parents resort to giving their children private lessons where the number is low and explain the best
Disadvantages of private lessons
Reducing the role of the school
Where some students rely more on lessons than on schools

Where students have previous information about the lesson from private lessons at home and others
Therefore leads to the failure of the teacher during the explanation and not to use new methods to communicate the information to the student
Some students refused to go to school because they had the information they wanted about their curriculum.

Price gap for private lessons between cities and villages
It is worth mentioning in this article that the prices of private lessons vary completely between villages and cities.
Where the villages are the lowest price for private lessons compared to the cities
this is due to the economic conditions of the families in the villages
this is completely the opposite of what is done in cities where there are some cases where the teacher works with one share for quite a good amount
As for the villages where teachers are treated per month at low prices compared to the cities
One of the reasons for the high prices of private lessons in cities is the high income of citizens living in cities
How to legalize private lessons and limit their spread
the state is working to increase the number of classrooms and increase educational possibilities leading to a decrease in the density of students in the classrooms

Simplifying courses for students
Review the system of examinations based on preservation and indoctrination only
increase the efficiency of training programs for teachers
encourage teachers in public schools to work better
Increasing student activities within the school and taking care of them which increases the strength of the relationship between the student and the school
Returning and encouraging school groups and selecting qualified teachers to work in them
Increasing teachers' income, which leads to them not being forced to work private lessons outside of school.
Change the system of tests from tests that measure the level of preservation of the student and his retrieval for the information a system that measures the understanding of the student and his application of information
Encourage students with a high score and honor them in front of their colleagues in order to make them an incentive for their friends
Despite all these proposed solutions and the efforts made by the state towards the phenomenon of private lessons
This phenomenon will continue to exist.
Because there are some students who have a low level of achievement.
That's why they're turning to private lessons.
Hence the answer to the question we asked at the beginning of the article
