Online Tutoring vs In Person Tutoring
Some parents I speak to are skeptical about online tutoring. Usually, their first response is, I don’t know if they will be able to concentrate, or I’m not sure if they will know what to do.
These concerns are certainly understandable, but from my experience of tutoring online, I find the EXACT opposite happens. The reality is that kids love tech. In fact, most kids are more tech-savvy than us! Even those of us who think of ourselves as pretty tech capable.
I find that kids love learning online. Online tutoring using Zoom is actually SO much fun. There are so many apps that integrate into Zoom that the online tutor can use, that it opens up a whole new world of possibilities to make learning exciting, fun, and memorable.
