The traditional classroom setting doesn’t allow for the personal attention that many students need to reach their maximum potential due to the fact that in a classroom there’s one teacher to often dozens of students. Private tuition is a great option for students to get the extra attention they need to help them get the most from their studies and get the best possible grades, but often private one to one English tutoring can be costly.
This is where the advantage of online tutoring comes in since it provides all the advantages of one to one tuition, yet at a significantly reduced cost to the student while at the same time being flexible for the student by being able to utilize the power of technology.
The Internet is a fantastic resource which is absolutely full of useful information on an almost limitless number of topics. The best part about it is that the student will find topics that are explained in dozens of different ways, so if the student doesn’t understand something at first then chances are they’ll find an answer explained in a way they do understand.
However, finding the best sources of information on the Internet by oneself can be a daunting task, which is one of the many advantages to having a private online tutor. Not only will students be able to get the one to one guidance that they need, but the tutor will be able to find and point them to the best resources available online for further study.
Personalized Online Tutoring
With an online tutor the student will be able to build a good working relationship where-by the tutor will learn how the student best learns and where any problem areas are and can therefore formulate study plans accordingly. In the classroom environment it’s just not possible for a single teacher to learn what works with every individual student to provide them with the personal support they need to achieve the best possible grades.
How Technology Enhances Online Learning with a Tutor
The technology available online today brings tutors from all over the country together with students in such a way that simulates the environment that would be found if they were in the same room. With technology such as Skype, the tutor and student can chat and type to each other live and the even share a whiteboard which both student and tutor can draw on.
This enables the tutor to give private lessons to the student while drawing out diagrams and working through examples on the shared whiteboard while the student can ask questions to the tutor or even try to solve examples on the whiteboard under the watchful eye of the tutor.
Achieving the Best Possible Grades
Students that get private tutoring are in the best possible position to reach their maximum potential and achieve their best grades. One of the main reasons for this is due to the fact that having an online tutor helps keep students focused on the work required. Often students are focused while in the classroom, an environment conducive to learning, but once they leave the classroom and are back home there’s too many distractions around them, so they don’t get enough work done to achieve the best grades.
When an online tutor is utilized, the student will find it much easier to stay focused on work at home since they’ll be under the guiding influence of the tutor, who will make sure that they’re completing assignments and making the most of the online learning resources available.
Online Tutoring is Fun and Interactive

Students can collaborate with others on similar courses throughout the country and they can actively work together to solve problems and encourage each other. There are also lots of great videos available on the Internet that the online tutor will be able to refer the students to that will help strengthen their interest in the topics and help them gain the necessary knowledge and ability to get the best possible grades come exam time.
