Online tuition is becoming increasingly popular, for tutors and students alike. Hugely effective – for some even more so than the traditional face-to-face options available – it provides all prospective learners with the opportunity to overcome any geographical barrier. This, together with the fact that most students feel being online to be a very natural and comfortable experience, means that the highest quality tuition can be available to anyone no matter where they are, at the touch of a button.
Through the use of Skype, Zoom, Bitpaper, Blackboard Collaborate (to name but a few!), live, fully-interactive online tuition can be accessed by anyone with a broadband internet connection. These instant ‘online classrooms’ allow immediate sharing of documents – from past exam papers and model answers to fully-marked (and sometimes jointly marked!) feedback, all of which can be annotated and developed in exactly the same way as a face-to-face session would allow. In an online lesson, the content is on-screen, saved and recorded, ready to be referred to as a top quality learning resource at a moment’s notice. Like paper… but without the mess.
