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 # 5: Selection
If you choose to work with a tutor, finding a good one is always important, and especially so in subjects like math where high quality specialists are rare. The availability of the Internet, however, makes finding the right tutor easier than ever.
One benefit that online tutoring can provide that even in-person tutoring can’t is selection. Choosing to use an online tutor makes tutoring talent from all over available to you, making it easier for you to find a tutor whose personality and skills are a good match for your particular needs.
