The key advantage of online tutoring is the convenience and affordability it provides. Few advantages are as below:
Quality education: You get qualified and high quality tutors who are full time into teaching due to the effectiveness of this method.
Affordable: Online tutoring is affordable due to cost advantages associated with it.
Commute advantage: Neither the tutor nor the students spend time, money and energy commuting.
Comfort: The students study from the comforts of their own homes.
Supervision: The child studies under parent’s supervision.
Flexibility: You can get the tutoring session at your convenient timings.
Safety: Most important of all, the child studies in the safe home environment. Tutors are selected after thorough background vetting processes and tutoring sessions are also monitored for added safety.
Personalized session: The sessions are personalized to cater to the specific students’ need.
In case of online tutoring, there is no need for the tutor and the student to be present in the same place unlike traditional tutoring. The tutor present in one end of the world uses an on-screen whiteboard to write and edit which is visible to the student in another part of the world.
The student can also write back or edit on the white board making it an interactive session. This whiteboard along with the voice of the tutor does the job seamlessly and in fact in a better manner compared to traditional methods.
An on-screen whiteboard is a rectangular white space provided by the tutoring software/application on the screen of the computer, laptop or any other electronic gadgets where the tutors can write or edit using tools like virtual pen/pencil/ eraser etc.
PowerPoint presentations, videos and other forms of media can also be played on the whiteboard to make the session more interesting.
What is most effective is that the student on the other side can also do the same which makes it a highly interactive tutoring session.
Headphone with a microphone/mouth piece is ideal to have. A laptop/computer with receiver and a speaker can also do provided the sound quality is good. Basically, whatever the student says should be audible to the tutor and vice versa.
A Pen Tablet. Initially the sessions can be managed without this as the student can type in or even a mouse can be used but once we get into more number of sessions, you may have to get one. This can be purchased from online stores. We can assist you in case you need guidance on this.
To provide quality tutoring at affordable pricing, we have to necessarily get tutors from certain regions which may have accent issues. However, we do our best to address this issue by providing accent neutralisation training to our tutors where required.
Parents would receive an email communication with the necessary details at the end of every session. A report card would be sent at the end of every month showing the progress.
Alternatively parents can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org asking for the latest progress report and we would send it to you at the earliest. The tutor would also have a progress discussion at the end of three months with the parent.
We understand the concerns you may have about how well the tutoring would be and hence we start with a free demo session if you are new to us. Further, the first four sessions form a lookout period, during which you may decide not to continue with us, in which case your money would be refunded.
