Online tutoring

Tutoring traditionally has been face-to-face, however it does not have to be so. Online tutoring is convenient, personal and highly effective. More and more, we are realising that it is possible to hold effective and personal meetings, tutorials and conversations online and that there are significant benefits for doing this. Consider the value of YouTube or Facebook: they provide excellent resources for learning new skills and finding out important information. Now take the benefits of these, and add in a professional, personal and relational service. That might help you imagine the power that online tutoring has to offer.

Some of the main benefits for online tutoring are:

  1. It is highly convenient. All that is needed is a connected device.
  2. It is very effective. Modern technology allows for high-quality conversations, meetings and tutorials to happen online. Screen sharing allows for effective sharing of resources in a professional and user-friendly way
  3. It is familiar. We know how to use connected devices and they are user-friendly.
  4. It is led by an experienced, qualified teacher. The quality of teaching is high and the learning experience is excellent.
  5. It is non-intrusive. You do not have to have anyone into your home, or make sure everything is tidied away before someone arrives.
  6. It feels safe. Often for students who are starting tutoring, meeting a new person and being in the same room as them can feel like a big step and a bit of a challenge. Having a screen in between the child and the tutor can help to bridge that gap, allowing the child to feel safe as well as personally connected with the tutor.
  7. It is excellent value for money. Because we do not have to travel to you, we can keep our rates down and offer outstanding value-for-money.
  8. It is green. No travelling means no petrol or diesel.
  9. It is secure. We use a completely secure website calling function which is safe and secure for the tutoring session.
