Online tutoring or distance learning is becoming more and more prevalent. People are finding that learning from the comfort of their own home at a time that works for them is much easier than going to a school, library, or tutoring center to learn. It cuts down the need to get childcare or to use the car and waste gas unnecessarily.
There are quite a few online learning establishments. If you want to learn online, there are a variety of places to check out. Some of them are big, established places with many tutors. Why consider DUO Education instead of those places? Most of the bigger places give tutors a percentage of the tutoring fee. So, in order to make the program worth it to both the company and the tutors, the fee has to be more expensive. I am a one woman show. I only have to make it worth it for myself. So, my prices are apt to be less expensive.
How does online tutoring actually work? What is involved? For me, it would be a case by case basis. It depends on what is needed and what technology the learner may have to use. It could be any where from emailing or chatting back and forth to Skyping or using Google Hangouts to have more of a face to face feel. There is technology where a learner and tutor can share use of an online white board or chalkboard, so that you can work on problems together. Sometimes tutoring involves gathering resources and learning activities for learners to practice in between sessions. With DUO Education, it may also creating custom activities individualized for optimum results for each learner.
That leads me to my next point to consider, while considering online tutoring… or any tutoring for that matter. What is the educational philosophy of the tutor? Does he or she have a variety of strategies in teaching? Is he or she willing to cater to your learning style and abilities? Is the tutor encouraging and understanding?
There is another plus to online tutoring. It is safe. You or your child is not side by side of someone you don't know. Yes, there is a "side by side" feel on the computer. But…there isn't any rubbing shoulders in a home, center, library, or school.
