In the school students don’t have the choice to choose the best teacher for them. When selecting a private tutor you have the choice to select with whom you want to work with. The bonding between student and tutor is necessary because then only the tutor can understand the need of the student, that how student can learn his lesson easily and what method should be used to teach the student.
