Helping Parents Choose the Right Virtual Tutoring Service
To choose the right virtual tutoring service for your child you must first decide what you wish to achieve through the supplemental education program.
Virtual tutoring pairs a child with an experienced educator who looks forward to assisting your child with a particular subject. Whether your student is struggling or simply looking to excel and go beyond what is being taught in the regular classroom, quality virtual tutoring services provide flexibility and accountability while offering affordable rates to meet a variety of budgets.
VIRTUAL TUTORING FLEXIBILITY
Virtual tutoring provides students and families with individualized programs that recognize a student’s unique needs. With traditional tutoring, a student works one-on-one with the tutor at a desk or table with textbooks, homework assignments, and special projects. Online tutoring uses the latest in technology to design a program based on diagnostic testing that helps the educational programmer prepare lessons to best meet your child’s needs. Online tutoring allows for flexibility in time and place for tutoring sessions, as the student is able to choose a comfortable location for tutoring sessions that inspires him to learn rather than be confined to a more traditional setting. Online tutoring also allows learning to happen on-the-go when vacations or other travel might otherwise interfere with tutoring sessions.
VIRTUAL TUTORING ACCOUNTABILITY
Online tutoring programs are unique in the amount of accountability they provide for students and families. Parent communication is key for student success, and online tutoring programs offer regular updates on student progress for parents whose children are in the program. Student learning goals are set at the beginning of the tutoring relationship and re-evaluated periodically to see if those goals are being reached. With regular contact between the parents and educational manager, the student knows he is accountable on a regular basis for the work he is doing.
