Online learning can take the form of self-learning via videos that a student can watch. Alternatively, it can be in the form of learning with a tutor via an online platform such as WhatsApp, Skype or Zoom.
Learning online with a tutor in real-time (via WhatsApp or Skype) is similar to learning in the physical presence of the tutor. You can see and interact with the tutor, as in a classroom or home setting.
Our 10 years experience doing both methods shows that learning with an online tutor is as effective as learning with a tutor in-person, whether at home or in a classroom.
In fact, online tutoring might be even better than in-person learning! Tutors are better prepared for the class, and the distance makes students feel more comfortable to interact and ask questions.
And, of course, parents can get more value for money.
It is normal for students and parents to be sceptical of the effectiveness of online learning with a tutor until they try and experience it. To address this issue, Guru Online provides a free trial lesson. Try it now!
