Although online learning started in 1996, many parents and students have not recognized the benefits of using online tutors to enhance their education. Not unlike telecommuting and virtual commerce that are commonly used for businesses, online tutoring has a number of distinct benefits in comparison to student to teacher in person tutoring. In fact, in most cases online tutoring is a better choice. According to studies by Potomac University online learners scored higher on standardized tests. Classroom students averaging 50 percentile versus online learners 59 percent. So let’s look at some of the other benefits of online tutoring for your student.
1. Broad Selection Of Subjects:
Rather than worrying and wasting time trying to find a local tutor that meets your criteria and will work with your schedule, with online tutors you have a selection of qualified teachers to choose from. The selection allows you to be more selective. You also have the added benefit of working with more than one tutor who specialize in different fields of knowledge who are experts in their field where the student needs help.
2. Available Anywhere:
If you find yourself in need of a tutor who specializes in the field of knowledge that your student needs, geography can be a limitation. In smaller towns and rural areas, you may find one, but then will have to meet their schedule rather than yours. Often you do not have an option for local tutoring. Once location no longer is an issue finding the right tutor is suddenly an easy task.
3. Extremely Convenient:
Imagine the convenience for both the parent and student to choose the time, location and day that suits their schedule as opposed to driving around to meet the tutor, using time and fuel. The ability to be able to relax after work watching TV while your child is online with their online tutor is in itself a major benefit. With face to face tutors, you have to work with their schedule.
4. Advanced Technology Supports Learning:
Parents often worry that technology will be a hindrance. For today’s student is it an advantage as young people are used to chatting online and are not intimidated at least by new software and programs. With multiple tabs available on most search engines, resources are immediately available as opposed to sitting across the table with a tutor.
5. Incredible Value:
When you have multiple choices and are able to discriminate in your choice of tutors, the tutors have to meet your criteria instead of the other way around. This also means you do not have to settle for second or third choice and let’s face it, no child will learn from someone they cannot connect with. So with online tutoring you have tutors competing for your business.
