Tutoring used to be perceived as being sort of like psychotherapy – a remedy for a defect, only needed if there was a problem. More and more, though, as the weaknesses of traditional education become more clear and the public school system becomes more financially burdened, tutoring, particularly online tutoring, is coming to be seen as something that can supplement any student’s education and even help exceptional students to excel. This series of posts is about some of the unique ways that online tutoring can benefit any student.
Benefit # 4: Availability
What if your child could have an on-call expert in a given subject available 24/7? How would any child’s chances to excel academically improve with this kind of attention?
This is the reality of online tutoring. While teachers, because of their position, cannot possibly provide individual attention to each student, let alone make appointments after hours.
An online tutor, however, can be available as much or as little as a student needs, and can be available at any time. With on online tutor you don’t even have the potential inconvenience of having to meet with somebody in person or having to leave your home. Tutoring sessions can be scheduled to blend seamlessly with the rest of life, providing both structure and flexibility to a student’s academic routine.
