The hiring of an online tutor used to be perceived as some kind of a cure for problems that existed with the student. But now we realize it’s a weakness in the traditional educational system. The system is financially burdened and the students are not fully getting the education they need.
Here are six reasons why hiring an online tutor can benefit students regardless of their age.
Individual attention. Students are not getting the attention they deserve. Teachers in public schools are overburdened with too many students and far too little resources. The tightening of government budgets has all but dried up resources that used to be readily available. Teachers just can’t take the time to work on an individual basis like they used to. But online tutoring can provide this kind of attention at any time and in the comfort of the student’s own home. Not only is this a much more effective way to tutor, but it can also meet the students needs without any of the social pressures of sitting in a classroom surrounded by others.
Rapport. The relationship between the student and teacher takes on a unique perspective, as the tutor doesn’t have to be an authority figure that must rule over a classroom full of rowdy students. Away from peer pressure the student will want to learn and form a bond with the tutor. The authority figure of a teacher becomes, old school.
Self-Worth. Because a teacher is working on a one-to-one basis, they easily determine if the student truly understands the subject matter. The tutor is not working to a broad audience. He is working with one student at a time. So if that student doesn’t understand, the tutor can present the subject matter differently resulting in their true comprehension.
Access. An online tutor can be available for as much or as little as a student requires. Teachers generally, work a 9-to-5 work schedule during the week, but an online tutor can tailor his hours to those of the student. Neither the tutor nor the student has to drive to anywhere and they both can work from home if they want to.
Variety. There’s s a large pool of knowledgeable teachers in a wide variety of subject matter brought together over the internet to address the students particular teaching needs.
Value. Having such a wide selection of tutors available from all over the world also means that you as parents can be assured of getting an excellent value. With the hiring of an in-person tutor, you would be limited by local availability and would also find it necessary to pay their travel expenses.
These are just a few reasons why an online tutor is a valuable educational resource for any students academic needs. Individual attention online gives the tutor the ability to teach his educational specialty quickly and efficiently, which is a real advantage to the student and their parents.
