You hire a tutor to get one-on-one tutoring. I was looking for lessons that students take with a tutor and I found private tutoring lessons. I have two questions:
- Can I use a private tutoring class to refer to a small group of students who hired a tutor? What if there is just one student and a tutor. Can I use class here, too? For example,
I have a [class] with my tutor at 4. I'm going to my [class].
- What's the opposite of private tutoring? Public teaching? For example,
I hate [public* classes]. [Public teaching] doesn't work. I prefer [private** classes].
*Classes with a lot of students in them; often associated with weak education.
**While you get one-on-one education with a tutor; often associated with a better quality than that of a public school.
Do the words I put within brackets sound natural in the sentences?
