Learning on one's own or learning under a teacher?


Acquiring knowledge has become an important part of our daily activities. Whether through news channels, informative books or discussions in a school class, people now favour learning and understanding the world in which they live. Even senior citizens who never grew up with modern gadgets such as laptops, mobile phones, etc., now realize that they must know the basics of operating these equipments if they are to get ahead in the world. These demands for knowledge are indeed not out-of-place in a world where new findings or advancements are constantly being added to an existing knowledge pool. However, while some prefer hiring a teacher or attending taught classes, some favour grasping these things on their own. In my opinion, the former has more weight. Even though learning on one's own have some benefits of its own, learning under a teacher certainly offers more advantages for many reasons. I shall outline these here.

First, studying under a teacher or having a teacher put one through offers the oppportunity to ask questions when lost. This is certainly an opportunity which one cannot have when studying alone. Usually after reading a topic or conducting an experiment, there will remain gaps in one's knowledge. Even though the student who doesn't have a teacher might fill those gaps himself, this will take considerable time. On the other hand, the student, who has a teacher, can immediately pose the troubling question to his experienced teacher who will be quick to provide him an answer.

Second, teachers are teachers because they are experienced and know how to go about difficult parts. Certain subjects, such as advanced physics, are infact very difficult and not easily understandable. Like students who might have difficulty with such a subject, senior citizens might also experience a hard time using an equipment they have never seen in their life. The experienced teacher comes in here. Knowledgeable and used to such difficulties, the teacher can easily solve the student's or senior citizen's problems. Some may argue that such a teacher's services will be very expensive, but we are well aware that the knowledge the other party gains from his teaching is worth even more. As they say, knowledge is power.

Third, those who study on their own will probably be unaware about pacing their reading. Starting with the first chapter of a relatively unimportant book or studying page by page of irrelevant materials, they may read hapazardly. In addition to teaching, teachers also guide students. A teacher might know very well which chapter to begin with and perhaps this will be the last chapter. A student studying by himself, on the other hand, may make the wrong move of beginning with the first chapter. For example, I remember getting instructions from my college teacher not to read a particular book which, though was popular, was not ideal at that moment. Following his directives, I paced my reading very well and only read the important details at the appropriate times.

Finally, teachers also motivate students. In addition to guiding one through the learning maze, they also encourage one along this rather strenuous exercise. Learning is not easy, especially when one is confronted with difficult parts. Having a teacher by one side can be a huge consolation.

In conclusion, the opportunities to ask questions, learn from experienced hands, get help with reading appropriately and get motivation while learning make learning under a teacher far more advantageous than studying by oneself. Apparently we all need teachers, even as we serve as teacher to others. Even though we might have to pay for their services, I believe that taking that chance is not only worth it, but also is the best option we have.
