Will we need expensive equipment for the online tuition sessions?
All you will need, as far as technology goes, is access to a PC/laptop/tablet with a camera and speakers, and to be able to access the web browser Chrome. Online tuition sessions take place through a video-conferencing site called Zoom, which (for our purpose) is free to use.
Students may also need access to the following standard equipment:
paper (plain, lined, squared and graph),
coloured pens/pencils and
Before each session, I will notify you what will be needed for the next.
Why should we choose online tuition?
I'm going to be completely honest with you and say that when I first heard about online tuition, I was rather sceptical, thinking that it could never provide the quality that traditional face-to-face tuition offered, but I'll admit now that I was wrong. Online tuition not only allows greater flexibility of learning techniques, it also offers a greater wealth of resources for sessions and, interestingly, students naturally verbalise their thoughts more, which embeds learning. Plus, many students love using technology when they're learning and, for some families, it's less intrusive because a tutor isn't physically entering their homes.
How often do we need to schedule sessions?
I'd advise at least one session of one hour per week of the subject of your choice. If you are having both Maths and English sessions with LESSONing the Load, you may be inclined to opt for two hours, depending on what school year the child is in, how they are coping with their courses and how much time they have available. Every learner is different.
