Why you should consider online tutoring
When most parents hear the word online tutoring, they can't
quite envision it, but when students hear the word online
tutoring, they are intrigued. Online tutoring allows a tutor and
student to communicate from computer to computer. Most online
tutoring sessions take place inside an online classroom.
Many online tutoring services offer a whiteboard so words can be
written or drawn with the mouse and keyboard. Only the best
online tutoring classrooms offer voice over ip. This means both
the student and tutor can speak through the computer as long as
both have a microphone and speakers.
Once the parent understands the concept of online tutoring, they
are often times amazed. Their child can ask any question and the
tutor is able to walk the student through the entire problem
solving process and help the student to solve each problem. This
one on one communication is what most students need to overcome
In the classroom, most students are left behind if they don't
ask specific questions to help them understand what they are
learning. Once a student starts falling behind, tutoring must be
provided to prevent failing grades. Often times a personal face
to face tutor intimidates students and still might not help.
Online tutoring allows any student to get the one on one
attention they need without the intimidation factor. Students
feel comfortable learning online and the fact that each lesson
can be printed is a wonderful study tool.
If you never tried online tutoring, I suggest you give it a try
and allow your child to learn online. The cost is usually less
than a private tutor and you won't have to drive and worry about
scheduling issues. Your child can learn from any computer as
long as there is an internet connection.
