How does Online Tuition Work?
Our virtual online classrooms use digital whiteboards with integrated audio and video capability. Sessions are recorded so you can review your lesson afterwards as often as required. The entire whiteboard contents will also be emailed to you after each lesson for your notes. Both tutor and student can write on the whiteboard and learning material can be uploaded to the learning space.
This means a highly effective and efficient one to one tutoring session can take place, without the pupil having to spend any time making notes.
Online Tutoring by UK Qualified & Experienced Trachers
Principal Tutors is a leading provider of online tutoring. In a rapidly expanding industry, we maintain the highest standards of educational support and customer service.
While many providers are happy to supply tutors who are students or currently studying for their Post-Graduate Certificate in Education, Principal Tutors engage only professionally qualified and experienced teachers. We don’t doubt that graduates know their subjects and have excellent teaching skills, but we believe it is imperative to use only teachers with classroom experience, training and accreditation in the education system. They have had years of face-to-face experience and know the requirements of the curriculum intimately.
We are not just a directory of tutors, simply making introductions between tutors and students. We play an active role in matching the student to the tutor, and if it isn’t quite right the first time, we will revisit the process until we find the ideal match. The tutor will then conduct an informal assessment in the first session to establish the student’s needs and then devise a personalised programme of tuition.
Our customer service provisions ensure that any problems are solved as quickly as possible so you can use Principal Tutors in the knowledge that you and your child have the full support of our organisation at all stages of the process.
The decision to engage an online tutor is one that requires some thought and research, and you are bound to have a lot of questions to ask before proceeding. Here we will attempt to answer some of the most common ones.
Is Engaging with an Online Tutor Good?
An online tutor can never take the place of a school teacher, university lecturer or college tutor. There is no substitute for the traditional places and methods of learning. Teachers are best placed to deliver the full school curriculum.
However, as good as our education system is, there will always be pupils and students who develop specific needs to help them get the most from the learning experience. Frequently, the educators in our institutions lack the time and resources to meet those needs, meaning those who are struggling have to muddle through as well as they can. If someone has fallen behind through illness or has difficulty with particular topics, they are very unlikely to achieve the results of which they’re capable.
Online tutoring provides the ideal solution. Principal Tutors offer students the help of qualified teachers who are intimately familiar with the curriculum and have expert knowledge in their fields. By identifying areas that need extra work, they help students bring their understanding and their work up to the level of their contemporaries and prepare them for the end-of-course exams.
What are the Benefits of Online Tutoring?
If your child is in need of professional help with their school or college work, then they need a convenient solution that won’t encroach on their time and interfere with the rest of their studies. One-to-one tuition from an online tutor fulfils those requirements.
There is no need to travel because everything is conducted online. The only time you need to set aside is for the tutoring sessions themselves.
Principal Tutors offer clients the option of receiving recordings of their online tutoring sessions. This enables students to revisit topics to consolidate their understanding and identify any outstanding questions they need to ask their tutor during the next session.
Students can be matched with tutors who are the most appropriate for their educational needs and best suited to their personalities and preferred ways of learning. With Principal Tutors, a wide range of tutors is available, giving much broader options than the limited possibilities in a school, college or university.
How can I get Tuition Online?
The number of companies offering online tutoring services has grown significantly since the Covid-19 pandemic. Even before the virus struck, private tuition was widespread. Since lockdown and school closures, it has moved further into the mainstream. A simple Google search will take you to hundreds of online tutoring providers offering the services of thousands of tutors.
Finding online tuition is therefore simple. Finding the best is not so straightforward. You need to have complete confidence in any tutoring service you engage in because your child’s future depends on it. There is no official regulation of online tutoring in the UK, so in theory, anyone can set themselves up with a smart website and extravagant promises.
How Do you Find a Good Online Tutor?
What you should look for is a provider with clear standards and a good reputation.
Word-of-mouth recommendation is extremely valuable but on its own is no guarantee of quality. Principal Tutors is a multi-award-winning company which has been providing top-quality online tutors for years. We engage only qualified teachers who are either tutoring in addition to their regular teaching jobs or have left full-time teaching positions to concentrate on private tuition. They remain fully conversant with the current curriculum and educational standards.
When you’re looking for a good online tutor, make sure you are choosing from the best available.
