Benefits of Online Tutoring
Mentorship: One of the most underrated but largely valuable benefits of one-on-one tutoring is mentorship. Mentorship focuses on developing a relationship with a student to help them grow, gain confidence to explore new concepts and overcome life challenges. Tutors who mentor their students provide a caring, supportive and encouraging relationship built on trust and mutual respect. The tutor is simply a wise friend who is committed to providing academic guidance and encouragement to their student. Every student deserves a tutor who inspires them, encourages and motivates them, as well as makes learning fun and engaging. Human connection is the glue that binds students academic and personal lives together, helping students gain the confidence they need to overcome life challenges and grow into their fullest potential based on the vision they have for their life.

- Everyone learns differently: Everyone’s brain is wired differently, some students are visual learners who benefit from visual aids while other students are auditory learners who benefit best from hearing instruction being explained to them. Other students are kinesthetic learners who prefer an active learning style and a more hands-on approach to learning the material. One-on-one tutoring is most effective when tutors are able to recognize their students learning style and adapt their teaching instruction accordingly, to fit the individual needs of their students. This helps make learning fun and engaging as well as helps the student retain the information they are learning.
