Subject: teacher student relationship.

I failed my drivers test several times. I finally passed when I recieved one on one instruction from someone who I felt comfortable with and him with me. Does instructor and student chemistry have a lot to do with educational success?

Yes and no. Good one-to-one teaching can help a person with difficulties through a challenging class. I work as a private tutor, and I have taught driver's ed, and yes, sometimes you do need a little extra.
But one important thing to learn in life is to be able to work and learn without having your hand held. Try to do some difficult things on your own, too.

One summer when I was a teenager I took drivers Ed. For whatever reason I felt a lot of tension being in the car with two other students and the drivers ed insturctor. I ended up getting my discount a card at the end of the summer, but I didn't feel anymore confident about driving.

Finally I went to driving school with a one on one instructor and passed my test.

One on One instruction worked really well for me. I never expect an instructor to do the learning for me.

I know I'm responsible for putting in effort.
