As many parents consider another half term of home schooling, it can be overwhelming and exhausting. Over the past few weeks mums and dads have tackled trying to teach their children, whilst home working, doing the usual cleaning, cooking and more.
Whilst schools have adopted different approaches to help parents during the lockdown, you may find yourself needing a little more help over the coming weeks.
Online tutoring allows you to take control of your childs learning, using secure online classrooms, with qualified teachers.
If you’ve never used a home tutor before, you may have lots of questions. We have lots of help and support over on our site and are always happy to help, however here are some of our top tips on how to make the most of online tutoring for your child.
There are thousands of online tutors to choose from on the Tutorful platform, from Maths and English to Japanese and Music Theory. The chances are that if you’re considering a tutor at the moment, it is likely to be in a subject that your child is struggling with at the moment, or that you yourself are not especially confident in.
Having a private tutor offers more detailed and in-depth study of a subject. Using our online classroom, your child is able to video call, use the online whiteboard and share documents with their tutor.
You may of course be looking at something to offer a bit of variety for your child, or help them with a musical instrument etc. There really is something to suit every need and our tutors are happy to discuss your specific requirements.
When searching for a tutor, you are able to read their profile in order to learn more about their experience and see useful details such as how many repeat learners they have and how many hours they have taught. All useful information to put your mind at ease.
Search for an online tutor in any subject here.
Whilst it’s tempting to want your online tutor to effectively take the place of your child’s teacher, be mindful that time with a tutor is limited and your best approach is to identify clear goals for your child. Online tutors can then focus on achieving those goals.
So, how do you set goals for your child’s learning?
It’s important to set clear goals and then make sure that both your child and their online tutor know what they’re working towards.
A good way of doing this is to check in regularly with your child’s tutor to ask how they’re getting on. Most tutors will be more than happy to maintain open discussion with you as a parent and keep you updated.
You should also check your child’s work, seeing the kind of marks and grades they’re receiving. This should show progress over time.
By investing in online tutoring, you’re helping your child to continue their learning and development in a structured environment. Your child might just benefit from some face to face virtual lesson time and benefit from having direct feedback.
The price of a tutor session costs between £15 and £35 per hour, based on several elements and the needs of you and your child. Online tutoring is particularly cost and time-efficient and Tutorful gives you access to the best tutors acoss the country.
