Essentials of Online Tutoring
Our lives have become much easier, thanks to the internet. We are virtually travelling around the world today without stepping out of our homes. The internet has revolutionized our lives to such an extent that anything, anything we want today, we first refer to that thing over the internet and try to look what it is before ever taking a leap. The internet as medium is used to offer us many services and one of those services is online tutoring. We all know what online tutoring services are all about. It might not be a core form of education but a supplementary form which students are finding more easy and comfortable. Students like the idea of one teacher taking classes for student at a time. They’ve recognized the difference between sitting with a bunch of people and trying to grab the teacher’s attention in a class of about 40- 50 minutes and an online tutoring session in which a one teacher takes care of one student at a time. In an online tutoring session these one-on-one classes are helpful because the teacher doesn’t have to multi-task between 20-30 students and get confused and helps them focus 100% attention on just one student.
Before one begins a session of online tutoring, one must take care of certain basic essentials. These basic essentials are (1) a high speed internet connection or a broadband connection, (2) a headphone with a microphone, (3) a web camera if essential and (4) a white board. Now all the above things are available in virtually every home excepting the white board. A white board essentially is an electronic device which acts more or less like the Magic Slate that children play with. It’s a board-like thing with an electronic pencil. When you write on the board, what you have written will be displayed on the computer screen. Of course this white board has to be connected to the system.
Now, using this board, a lot of time which was earlier wasted is now saved. The main issue arises while trying to typewrite a complex mathematical equation or a chemistry equation. These equations are not simple things to deal with. Mathematical equations have superscripts and subscripts to take care of. These are a little harder to write and a good amount of time is wasted in writing and trying to write them. Instead writing on one of these boards reduces the wastage of time and the student as well as the teacher can concentrate on the subject.
Another important thing that students should keep in mind is that while learning the subjects, they might come across difficult terms and jargons. They will definitely ask the teacher and clear their doubts. But, they might forget them. Instead, of forgetting the difficult words, its better that the students could copy all the conversations from the Instant Messaging window on to a notepad or a document, will improve their efficiency very much. And by copying they can use the conversation for future reference. This will help both the student as well as the teachers. As teachers will not have to go back and explain everything. The teachers can then concentrate on the more important things.
If the teacher is using a white board then the student can simply take the screen shots and store them for future reference. Now, all these things might sound a little techie or geeky but, once you start using them, you’ll find them as easy as opening a Coke can.
And students ask the tutors when you have any doubts. Please we are here after all to clear your doubts. Don’t hesitate to ask us anything regarding the subject. You are after all paying for it. Even we were once like you, always getting so many doubts and wondering what the teacher might think. Don’t forget that we are here to help you and not to mock you for your doubts. Every doubt you raise is like getting one step closer to the subject. The more the doubts you get is a sign of the more you are learning.
So, go ahead and make the best of the tutoring services.
