Tutoring online may seem daunting at first, but there’s nothing to be afraid of; it can be just as, or even more, beneficial than in-person tutoring. With user friendly features in the TutorOcean classroom such as the interactive whiteboard, text editor, screen-sharing, and many more, tutors and students can have a seamless experience with online tutoring.
There are often many fears with transitioning to an online-based form of teaching and learning, such as having difficulty communicating properly with the tutor, sharing work, and such. As mentioned above, TutorOcean has a plethora of features that make the transition sweet and simple.
We try our best to make everything as easy to navigate as possible, so that people can take advantage of as much as possible. The whiteboard is a simple tool that allows for the students and tutors to draw freely alongside each other, to demonstrate formulas, illustrations, graphs, etc. There’s also a very useful snapshot tool, where one can take a picture of a problem and paste it directly to the whiteboard. Other features are explained in the quick demo that TutorOcean offers upon a user’s initial visit, so that you can benefit from all the features.
The advantages of online tutoring are plentiful. For starters, students and tutors are able to have a much wider reach, where location is no longer an issue. This allows for a more suitable tutor to perfectly match your needs, and vice versa for tutors finding students. This makes way for people who wish to learn a language; for example, they can work with a tutor from that specific country. This offers more specialization in teachings, which often leads to more successful learning. Additionally, without location barriers, students have one less thing to worry about when searching for tutors; they can look on the global market rather than just the local market, and hence expanding their choices and opening up options.
The greatest advantage of online tutoring is its convenience. No longer do students and tutors have to travel to meet each other, instead, they can work from the comfort of their homes, or anywhere else they choose. With flexible time frames, students can choose to be tutored as frequently or as infrequently as they like. This also means that they could also ask for more support at different times, as a tutor is only an email or a message away.
Online tutoring may be a change from the traditional method, but at the end of the day, the goal of tutoring is the same. Tutors want to pass on knowledge to the students and help them achieve their goals. TutorOcean allows for that to happen, and our support team is available round the clock to help with any issues you may encounter. Give it a try today!
