With all of the crazy that is going on in our busy lives, it is very difficult to find the time to fit in much-needed tutoring. By the time we factor in commute time against the limited availability of many brick and mortar tutors, it becomes nearly impossible to find a tutor that can best meets our needs. Good News! There are lots of options out there to get online tutoring and you can get it right NOW! Whether you prefer face-to-face video chat, audio files, or a recorded video series, there are tons of great options for you.
Here are 5 reasons why you should consider seeking out Online Tutoring:
Convenience is everything
The most amazing thing about online tutoring is that it is extremely convenient. It’s convenient for the person seeking tutoring, and the person providing the lessons. It allows for more schedule flexibility, customization, and individualization. It offers the opportunity to study in the comfort of your own home – or pajamas! You don’t have to commute to get to your tutoring session, and you can choose whatever location or environment works best for you. My favorite part of online tutoring is that I don’t have to struggle with carrying all of my study materials with me from place to place. Instead, I can spend just a few minutes before each session setting up my desk and computer with the materials my clients may need, and then BOOM! – I’m ready to have some fun!
When engaged in online tutoring, the accessibility and ease of sharing resources becomes practically unlimited and effortless. Sometimes when tutoring clients in person, access to a computer is not an option. This often places great limitation on our ability to cover more material in the time we have together. When tutoring online, it is extremely easy to find resources and share them with the client. On the same hand, clients can easily share documents and materials with me so that I can better assist them. To put it short, the accessibility to resources online is far greater than a book bag full of text and documents.
We all know that everyone learns differently. With online tutoring, there is more freedom to customize and individualize tutoring sessions. With traditional brick-and-mortar tutoring sessions, customization may become an issue. For the visual and audio learners out there, online tutoring typically works very well for them. Some tactile learners may need additional support, such as printable study material and the occasional in-person session. Regardless of individual learning style, online tutoring offers more availability for customization of services to best meet your learning needs.
Ability to easily record, rewind and review sessions
With the right kind of software, you can record, rewind, and review online tutoring sessions. Most common video chat apps and software come with recorders built into them. By utilizing this awesome feature, you can have a digital copy of each study session for later review. This is extremely useful when you have additional questions, or need further clarification. I can’t emphasize enough how important this feature is, and I am confident that you will find it extremely valuable as well.
Online tutoring is fun
One of my favorite things about online tutoring is how fun and personable the experiences are. When you’re meeting with someone in person, you feel obligated to dress a certain way, carry yourself in a certain way, etc. However with online tutoring, you get to focus solely on the learning experience rather than all that other stuff. In fact, I love when my clients come to my sessions comfortable and in their own skin. I believe that they feel less stress when they have the option of showing up to a tutoring session in sweats and fuzzy slippers, rather than a business casual outfit. This brings a sense of fun, relaxation, and relief that the tutoring focuses on the objective of teaching, rather than physical appearances and such.
So next time you are thinking that you’d love to find a tutor to help you study, make sure you seek someone who is willing to make it fun, personable, and individualized to meet your specific learning needs!
