We have been offering online tutoring, almost exclusively for math, for three years, so we know it works!
From one of our Math & Science online tutors: “Since my students are both doing math-heavy science subjects, I’ve essentially just been tutoring math. I’ve found it to work quite well. I find it functions in a similar way to a classroom scenario, but the student is able to more easily and freely interact with the material since it’s right there in front of them. All explanations can be aided with drawings through our white board function. Students can ask any clarifying questions right there in real time. A session can even be recorded! Overall, it’s at least as good as (if not better than) tutoring in person.”
From another of our Math & English tutors: “When I was temporarily moving provinces, my in-person students that I was working with still wanted to continue tutoring with me. I agreed to this and started tutoring them online. For the technical end of things, we can screen share to work an equation out together. I found my students to be more focused and therefore, the tutoring to be more effective. This also offered families a lot more flexibility in terms of scheduling as they didn’t have to rush kids to yet another place. When I moved back and could have been in-person with these students again, the families and I chose to continue online tutoring!”
