Convenient. Efficient. Effective.
Online tuition is a method of tuition that involves tutors and students connecting via the internet using a variety of software programs that facilitate real-time video sharing, audio sharing and instant messaging between users. It presents a much-valued answer to the issues of distance, travel-time and commuting-costs that often negatively impact both tutors’ and students’ availability by bypassing the need for the parties to meet up in person. Some examples of the kind of software programs that tutors and students might use for their online lessons include Skype, Zoom and Ziteboard. Such programs are free to download from their developers’ respective websites and are easy to use. They often require users to create an account, which involves the creation of a username and password, as well as email verification.
Does Manchester Maths & English Tuition offer Online Tuition?
Yes! Manchester Maths & English Tuition does offer online tuition to its students. This means our students can choose to receive lessons from tutors across the world, regardless of their location! The concept of online tuition seems new to most parents; however, it is without a doubt as effective, if not more so, than face-to-face tuition – and our students agree.
Benefits of Online Tuition
Location is no longer a factor! We often get student who reach out to us who live in an area that simply has no tutors. Online tuition offers these students a fantastic alternative to having to travel long distances to get high quality one-on-one tuition, and has made it possible for us to help pupils from small towns all over the UK. Indeed, we even have students from overseas!
Our tutors are available wherever your laptop or tablet is! Online tutoring means they can teach in a park, on the beach, in a coffee shop downtown or from the office, which in turn means they’re available for more of the time than if they were constricted to meeting face to face every time they tutored. They’re equally available the night before the exam for some last minute tips as they are during normal working hours, and if a student finds themselves on holiday, they no longer have to miss their lesson!
Having the ability to tutor online means our tutors incur less travel expenses, which in turn means lower prices!
Online tutoring means our students can fit lessons in whenever it’s most convenient for them, whether that’s in between classes, on the weekends or whenever else they’d like.
Online tutoring presents a remedy to the 21st century students’ age-old bane of time-management. Bad traffic, road blocks or poor public transport aren’t an excuse anymore. Students can always get to their lessons on time when they’re scheduled.
Instead of being limited by which tutors live near them, students now have unlimited access to, and can pick from, amongst the best tutors in the world, wherever they are. This means two things:
- Our tutors are available to teach students from all over the world; and
- Students from other cities or countries have the opportunity to receive lessons from our tutors despite their physical distance.
Online tutoring presents a more relaxed learning environment! Face-to-face tuition can often make some students feel pressured to perform well while their tutor is watching over them in person. I think anyone would prefer to learn from the comfort of their own home, and when a student feels at ease they’re more likely to engage with the subject and genuinely apply themselves. Of course, not all face-to-face learning sessions are high-pressured, but for the less confident students out there, online tuition might be the more productive option.
