Remedial Classes

Remedial classes are often used to stress the basics in a subject such as maths or language. They can help students who are having problems with advanced concepts to fully understand the basics of subject. Students can also use them to catch-up on material after a long break from education. Some people look upon remedial classes as fact be useful tools to gain a more complete grasp of difficult ideas or rules.


BASIC PURPOSE

    If a student appears to be significantly behind the expected level for a class, a teacher may require him or her to take a remedial class. These classes act as a “safety valve” for struggling students, allowing them to work at a more appropriate level, rather than failing because they are not at the same level as the rest of the class. Remedial classes can be a positive environment for students suffering from low-self esteem, as they encourage students to ask as many questions as necessary to understand a subject, rather than feeling pressured to learn everything immediately.
