The benefits of online tutoring

In March 2020 the world changed and is unlikely to change back in some respects. One of these changes has been the enormous increase in remote learning and working which has proved itself to be very effective.

There are many benefits to online learning and here are just a few:

Convenience

We lead busy lives and fitting in travel time, accounting for travel costs and other logistical factors means that being able to learn and tutor from your own home is a very convenient option. It can also be more environmentally friendly as no travel is involved.

Geography

It can be the case that an ideal tutor can be found for a student but the geography simply doesn’t work. This is when online tutoring really has even more to offer as it means a wider range of students and tutors can be connected without the limits of geographical hindrances.

Risk reduction

In 2020, we are living through a global pandemic and being able to learn and tutor from home is ideal for risk reduction. This is especially important for those who need to shield but understandably don’t want to see an interruption in their education or earnings.

Transferable skills

The very process of tutoring or receiving tuition online helps not only with the subject matter itself but also with developing a keener sense of ability and confidence with educational technology in general which is a transferable skill.

Flexibility

When tutorials are carried out online, there is often a greater degree of flexibility around timings. When travel isn’t a factor it means that it can be less important to have a set time and day each week but rather be able tot fit in lessons around other commitments and move them around if and when needed.

Effectiveness

When carried out by a competent tutor, online learning can be just as effective as face to face tutoring and tutorials can involve all of the same things – such as exam practice, revision technique honing and much more!
