What can online tutoring offer NCEA students?

Extramural studies


Isn't it an interesting concept how more and more opportunities are happening online. We have online shopping, online TV series, and now education has made its way online as well. Did you know even universities have online degrees? They call it "extramural education". Now primary school, intermediates and high schools have jumped on board. If you are feeling hesitant about online learning, then fret not, because our online tutors can offer a variety of benefits to students. Here are 5 reasons!

WE HAVE EXPERT CONTENT KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE FOR NCEA TUTORIALS:


Our online tutors in particular are all qualified teachers, so our experience and content knowledge are like a treasure chest filled with gold! We bring a PLETHORA of subject knowledge, wisdom, and experience to the table. We are not just any ole tutoring service either, we are expert NCEA teachers with classroom experience. Our lessons are purposeful and relevant to what NZ students are learning in the classroom. This is because we know a lot about NCEA and have confidence when teaching NCEA as well. Students really appreciate our tutorials as they can ask us any question about the school subject or NCEA and they will receive expert answers.

FLEXIBLE LESSON TIMES FOR NCEA TUTORIALS:


Our online tutors provide flexible scheduling options that can accommodate a student's busy lifestyle. This means that students can receive academic support at a time that works best for them, in the comfort of their own homes!


It is very common for high school students to participate in high school culture and community experiences such as sports, camps, productions, school balls, fundraisers, competitions, as well as general socialisation (hanging out with friends). This means that their tutorial schedule may not fit between usual "shop hours" (9am-5pm). Our online tutoring works well in these instances as students can participate in online tutorials with us right up until 9pm. Our hours are anywhere between 8am-9pm, depending on the tutor.

One of my regular students has about 5 or 6 other commitments after school each day, so our online tutorials are between 6:30-8:30pm. He has dinner and then jumps online and he's ready to go. It works well for his situation and his mother finds this way of tutoring convenient and worthwhile.



CHEAPER COSTS FOR NCEA TUTORIALS:


As a mother, I know what kinds of sacrifices and commitments that come with parenting, and one particular commitment is taking our kids to and from their social activities. Winter sports and after school clubs require us to be present at the activity, and also requires petrol costs. However, online tuition does not require either!

Students only need to log in on their laptops and they are experiencing tuition without parents having to worry about playing taxi. With the prices of petrol these days, this is a definite win for parents!

COMFORTABLE SITUATION FOR NCEA TUTORIALS:


The great thing about comfort is that it opens doors for learning. When people feel comfortable in their environment, they are more than likely going to feel safe to learn. What better place to feel comfortable and safe, than in your own home! I can tell you firsthand, from teaching online, students feel more inclined to ask questions and make jokes when they are in their own homes. When they are in a classroom, the teacher needs to establish boundaries and rules to ensure students feel safe, and therefore, feel safe to learn. When a student breaks these rules, e.g., They bully others in the classroom, it puts a barrier between another child's willingness to learn. At home, however, it is likely to be a consistent place of comfort and safety. So the student will naturally be open to learning. One could believe in some cases that students may learn well when at home.
