At Achieving Success, we are passionate about providing our pupils with expert online tuition that will shape their futures and pave their way to success, contributing to future development in later years. Ensuring that our pupils feel supported and confident in their ability is our number one priority.

To make sure that you, as a parent, have all the information needed on online tuition and how it can benefit your child, our team have pulled together the ultimate guide to help in your decision.

What Is Online Tuition?

Online tuition is a form of teaching that allows the student to receive dedicated tuition online from a qualified expert. The tuition will take place via an online platform such as Zoom or Skype.

How Does Online Tutoring Work?

The delivery of online tuition is relatively similar to that of a classroom environment. Your child will receive teaching in a small class size over a video call, with the option of screen sharing. The use of a digital whiteboard enables teachers to illustrate the question or sum and allows the pupils to really engage with the content in real-time. They also have the opportunity to voice any concerns or troubles they may be experiencing. With this in mind, the online tutor has ample time to react and provide support, guidance, and feedback where necessary. This also enables the tutor to determine whether a child’s concentration or understanding may be lacking. Working online provides the tutor with the capability to share resources and materials referenced either before or during a lesson, mimicking that of a face-to-face lesson.

What Are The Benefits Of Online Tuition?

Accessible On The Go

No matter where you are in the world or how often your schedule changes, online tuition is very flexible and can be accessed on the go, providing your internet connection permits this. This also means that parents with busy schedules that change week to week, do not have to commit time to drive their child to and from their tuition.

Sessions Are Fun And Engaging

Instead of reading straight from a textbook and hoping the information will sink in, online tutors can make their sessions really engaging and fun for pupils to take part in. With the introduction of healthy competition, the provision of extra support and guidance, and the use of digital whiteboards for real-time immersive learning, your child will not have to be persuaded to take part.

A Comfortable Environment For Learning

Being introduced to a complete stranger in a new environment can be a very daunting and intimidating experience, especially for a child of a young age. Learning in a space where your child feels comfortable and more relaxed will take the pressure off and allow them to fully engage with the material, therefore building their confidence and ability. 

Improved Technology Skills

Living in a digital age where almost everything is online, receiving online tutoring sessions gives your child the opportunity to practice their digital skills. This will make it that much easier for them to get to grips with technology as they grow older. This is an important skill that is sure to be used throughout their career and adult lives.

How Can I Ensure That The Tutor I Receive Is Right For My Child?

All of our online tutors at Achieving Success are fully qualified teachers to ensure that the tutoring our pupils receive is of expert quality and subject-specific. Once your child has completed their online assessment, they will be allocated a tutor that is not only suited to their age level, but also to their academic ability. This ensures that our pupils are given the dedicated support they need to succeed.

Is Online Tuition Effective?

Online tuition is effective if your child has been allocated a tutor that is appropriate for their age and ability. Ultimately, your child will get the most out of their learning experience if they are able to receive dedicated support for their specific, individual needs and build a trusting relationship with their online tutor. We have a number of online programmes available that are age-group specific to maximise your child’s success.

Is Online Tutoring Safe?

Online tutoring is safe, providing that you take the necessary precautions and checks before enrolling your child. At Achieving Success, all of our online tutors are highly-trained, qualified teachers that have been DBS checked and have undergone a series of vetting processes to ensure your child’s safety. Our online tuition is delivered via Zoom which is end-to-end 256-bit encrypted, the level of safety encryption used to securely transfer government data.

If you have any concerns regarding your child’s safety, you are more than welcome to be present when your child is learning and even get in touch with a member of our friendly team for more information.
