What Are the Benefits of Online Tutoring?

If you are thinking of hiring an online tutor, you have probably asked yourself just what benefits you will enjoy. When you choose online tutoring for your learning needs, you will find many benefits:

• It is so convenient!
o Online tutoring can be done practically anytime from home. With a simple internet connection, you or your student can log on and start learning!
o You don’t have to worry about being somewhere on time to catch the tutor. With all of the other running you do, having the flexibility to get the tutoring you or your student needs anytime is a real plus.
o No traveling is required! With the cost of gas rising, being able to stay at home and still get tutoring needs met is a great thing.
o Online tutoring covers many different subject areas. From foreign languages to algebra, from American history to biology, you will find a professional is available to tutor you online.

• It is so practical!
o Online tutoring can get you or your student through those core subjects which are causing difficulty. When you or your student need good (or even just passing) grades, a tutor can help with the skills needed.
o This form of learning is motivating, stimulating and interactive. Instead of a two dimensional book or text document, those being tutored will be receiving instruction from an online “personality” that can speak back, answer questions and make the subject being learned more interesting (and sometimes fun).
o Learning will take place in a real-time, one-on-one situation. All that is required: A computer, an internet connection, an online tutor, and a student having trouble in a particular subject.

Another added benefit is the retention that has been shown to occur with online tutoring. Adding the visual mode of the internet, along with the regular classroom teaching and text book reading, gives the student a better comprehension of the course material and a longer retention of what is being learned.

So, as you can see, the benefits of online tutoring are numerous. Students of any age can be assisted in practically all their studies with the help of understanding classroom teachers and a knowledgeable online tutor.
