ONLINE TUTORING

"How can this be possible?" mutters a learner, "How can a tutor be far away from me and help me to learn whiles I'm in my own home and looking through a computer?"

Online tutoring may sound remote to some of you. However, it is a virtual learning environment which preserves the value of face-face-face education through live interaction between the learner and a tutor.

Virtual online tutorials are mainly channeled through voice and video conferencing software like Skype and Google hangouts. The learners benefit from comprehensive dialogue with Tutor which remains immediate and uniquely individual. As a result, even very shy and reserved individuals feel more comfortable to open up to learn from their own homes. They are also engaged more easily with multimedia resources and the wealth of lesson extension materials available online.

From the above exposition, there is a reason to believe that learners can learn effectively online. In 2009, the US Department of Education published an evidence-based studies of K-12 and post-secondary learning programmes. The study reported that "students who took all or part of their classes online performed better on average than those taking the same course through traditional face-to-face instruction." These results have been improving overtime. I'm sure this is enough to settle anyone wondering about the "How's and Why's of online tutoring.

At this stage, I'm expressing my readiness to help anyone (or someone you know) who is in need of help with any of the areas of learning stated above. So please feel free to contact me.
