  • Is online tutoring effective?
    As the world becomes increasingly connected, online tuition is becoming increasingly popular. Online tutoring works on the same basis as face-to face, except the tutor is not present in the room. It is worth remembering that online is just another channel of getting tutoring help for your child. Expert teaching and guidance, personalised tutoring tailored to your child’s specific educational needs and goals produce results no matter the format used to deliver it. All good online tutors should come with the same guarantees and provide the same learning experience as face-to face tuition. Choosing the right online tuition delivering both engaging and effective tuition will make the difference to the child’s academic performance and confidence.
