In this study samples are collected from several stakeholders involved with the entire privately organized tutoring system as well as the schools. Data have been gathered through interview from teachers, parents and students of various categories. This investigation mainly focused and why the students go for private tuition and how the tutorial classes build up students’ knowledge and skills. The investigation revealed that not only the weaker students go for private tuition in mathematics but the students from all categories. Reasons of going mathematics tutorial classes ranged from getting pass marks to being forced by parents or pushed by class mates. However, common practice for most of the individual tutors is to complete the syllabus. Students expressed boldly that they could learn problem solving more easily in tutorial classes than in school.
