How to choose a tutor online, and what benefits you can expect from private lessons online
Over the last several years the online business of distance learning has become more popular as the technology has grown and improved.
Many companies across the globe have started to use tutors on line and remote learning as a way to lower cost and standardize training that takes place in different locations, and even different countries by using an online tutor for safety training, as well as other learning needs.
This trend has now extended to people searching out teachers for private lessons on line, and now that many people are required to stay at home and even more are not comfortable with going out and being in large crowds, tutoring on line and private lessons on line are being offered for everything from school subjects to therapy and fitness.
The question I want to address today is how to really know who is on the other end of the line and how to pick you tutor on line.
If you are anything like me, you are probably accustomed to sitting down and having or discussion or “interview” with anyone that would choose to have private lessons from. In this new era of social distancing this is no longer practical. It is, however, much easier now than in the past to search out to friends, family, or colleagues to find a reference.
First hand testimonials are still one of the most trusted ways to choose anything, including a tutor on line.
This can also be accomplished through online companies, like Miryadi, that qualify and vet the online tutor or tutors that work for them. These types of companies are becoming more popular and necessary as this sector grows.
It is also very advisable to look at the cv of your prospective tutor online, which can be sent directly to you or be found on the companies’ web site or promotional page. Lastly it is a good idea to have a test lesson or meeting with your tutor online before making a long-term commitment.
Personality and the ability to connect with your teacher are crucial when having private lessons on line.
Now, once you have done all your background work and chosen you tutor online, what can be expected? As stated above, many companies are using an online tutor or other forms of distance learning, so what are the possibilities and expectations when you have private lessons online? Is it actually possible recuperate lost lessons or education in an on line platform? I have been a full-time teacher of English as a second language for the past 7 years, and have taught in many companies and to many individuals both in groups and in one on one or private settings. In the beginning I resisted the idea of being a tutor online, being somewhat uncomfortable with the media and probably also due to my age. Let’s just say I am not a millennial!
However, after having some students that needed to frequently travel for work, others who needed lessons during a vacation or summer break, and also others who just couldn’t make it to the school or lesson site for regular lessons, I gave in and tried.
I quickly saw that the results, and the easy of being able to coordinate times and schedules far outweighed the small changes that needed to be made to my personal teaching style.
Since that time, I have helped executives prepare presentations, students train for and eventually have great scores on English competency tests, as well as assist young student recover debits in their primary education. I am now a believer in the power and effectiveness of a tutor online, and I am sure that if you follow some simple steps and find the right person for your private lessons on line, you will be too.
