In this new technology age of video and audio calls, we're able to connect with friends and family all over the world. Tutors have also managed to find a way to use video conferencing to teach students from the comfort of their own homes, though it may not be the exactly the same as in-person classes, here are some of the benefits of online tutoring!
Some students tend to work better in an environment that they're familiar with. Online classes allow students to get the same lesson in the comfort of their own home. This allows them to be more relaxed when doing their lessons, and can help them focus more on the work at hand.
In some cases, traffic and other annoyances can get in the way of a student reaching the class on time. Which can disrupt the tutors timetable or other individuals in a class. But by doing the lesson from home and online, it saves both the tutor and the student the travel time, meaning they'd be able to get to their lessons on time. Not only that, it can also save the parents time and money from going back and forth picking up their child, especially if the location is far from home.
There are a lot of fantastic tutors out there, who have a lot of positive experiences in online tutoring. The fact that they're online means you're able to access the right teacher for you even if you don't have many tutors available in your local area! (hint: the best tutors are able to bridge that virtual gap and provide the students with a lesson that feels incredibly close to in-person classes, they're the ones you want to search for).
Though teaching in-person has it's own upsides, online tutoring has definitely come a long way to give students that extra push that they need whilst in their own chosen environment. ID Tutoring has been providing online tutoring all year and we've had incredible feedback from all our students, who are often surprised at the experience. For certain individuals, their requirements may suit online tutoring perfectly so it's definitely worth considering!
