Remedial classes are often used to stress the basics in a subject such as math or language. They chelp students who are having problems with advanced concepts to fully understand the basics of a subject. Students can also use them to catch up on material after a long break from education. Some people look upon remedial classes as embarrassing, but they are 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 call him or her for 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.


Most remedial classes stress basic concepts that must be understood before complicated ideas can be applied. In remedial language classes, for example, teachers might stress grammar, spelling, and vocabulary. Remedial math usually focuses on basic mathematical functions such as addition, subtraction, and fractions. By getting these concepts firmly in hand, students can better focus on learning complex applications of them in more advanced courses.

Importance of Understanding

These courses only help students gain a better understanding of a particular subject. By reviewing and focusing on the basics, students become better prepared to keep up with advanced classes. Remedial courses  teach students better study and learning habits, to help them succeed where they might have otherwise found difficulty.
