What is Online Tutoring?

A virtual classroom is a digital replica of a traditional classroom. The tutors teach and students learn in real-time, face-to-face but via internet-enabled technology devices. The classroom is interactive and allows for discussions to happen in real-time. Teachers upload work in advance to the whiteboard and students can write directly onto the screen using a number of interactive tools.

In terms of teaching and learning, everything remains the way it is, with the exception of the integration of technology. Many of our students report an increased level of attention and focus because technology is ‘fun’ to use. Online learning offers families increased flexibility and convenience as time and money are not wasted travelling to access tuition.
