Do you learn better by yourself or with a teacher?

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Do you learn better by yourself or with a teacher? Some people claim that they can learn better by themselves with the help of books and Internet which has many study materials, whereas having a teacher makes them more rely on his/her help. However, those who think this way do not realize several beneficial advantages of having a teacher. Here are a few reasons why I prefer the help of teachers. First, whenever we study and read the new topics or subjects, questions regarding those matters start to appear. ...read more.

Middle

My math teacher pointed out my mistakes and suggested a systematic and better way to approach this subject. I finally got a better and deeper understanding of it. Without that help, this would either have taken too much time or never solved at all. Another reason why teachers are needed is because they not only convey knowledge to students but also give them a right direction. For example, most the students who have just entered into college tend to misuse their freedom e. ...read more.

Conclusion

Even though it ultimately depends on individuals to choose their own way, taking a teacher`s advice would make their decisions more accurate and right one. In conclusion, it really relies on students themselves to finally master a certain subject and make their own way. However, the learning process could be easier and interesting if there is a proper and continuous feedback from teachers. In addition, by getting advice from teachers, students might solve their own private problems sensibly such as their choices of major or GPA strategy. Hence, it is better for students to learn with the help of the teacher. ...read more.

Response to the question

In summary, the report is quite basic. The student has made some good points, however some of these aren't explained within detail or justified. In addition, the report could have been spilt into paragraphs. The student understands that 'some people' have different views on the best way of studying which shows the examiner that the student understands different methods of learning.

Level of analysis

The student accesses the ability of having a teacher rather than using self-study. The student states that the ability to ask questions is useful and an effective method of learning. This point is well explained and justified by the student. In addition, the student acknowledges that some students fail to focus on their studies, however there haven't fully explained this. The report could include 'Students can easily be sidetracked away from their studies, as studying is often quite boring and dull whereas other actives may be far more interesting. Thus, the student is more likely to undertake an activity anyway from studying'.

Quality of writing

The report doesn't contain any paragraphs, and this is a block of text. This is quite difficult to read in this format and should be separated into small paragraphs.
