Online tutoring is a great way to help students improve their grades and understand new topics. There are tutors available for just about every subject, and they can either conduct one-on-one sessions or guide small groups. They may also offer virtual office hours for student inquiries and provide support for course materials.
Whether your learner is looking for summer reading skills reinforcement, shoring up of necessary algebra skills or preparing to take an exam a good quality online tutor can make all the difference. But with the sheer volume of tutors to choose from it’s important to find a tutor that can match your learners unique needs.
In addition to helping them with their specific learning requirements online tutoring can also indirectly refine computing, word processing and web-based competencies; valuable skills that will benefit future employment. As well as that, it’s a convenient and flexible option for anyone with a hectic schedule who wants to get more out of their studies.
To be able to connect with their students in real time, a tutor needs a video chat tool that offers the ability to share content such as images or videos and has a whiteboard feature. This allows both tutor and student to write on the whiteboard in real time which is an excellent way to communicate during a lesson.
The other essential requirement is a computer or tablet with a high-quality audio/video connection that can be used to host the session. If there’s a lot of background noise, such as from a busy household, then a pair of headphones will ensure that the session is clear and easy to follow.
