A few weeks ago I woke up one morning and felt a cold starting to come on. The symptoms were mild and didn’t keep me from functioning, but I knew that I would be contagious if I was in the same room with somebody.
I had a tutoring appointment that morning, but fortunately it was on online appointment. It occurred to me then, that if I had been tutoring in person, I would have had to make a choice between either cancelling the appointment, or taking a chance on making my client sick. I was glad I didn’t have to make that choice! I was able to continue with my schedule as planned, with no interruption, and I realized that this was an advantage of online tutoring I hadn’t thought of before.
So there you have it, yet another advantage of online tutoring – no transmission of cold or flu bugs!
