Occasionally, parents have reservations about online learning.  And perhaps a large part of that is the unknown, however, online lessons have advantages that you may not have considered.

Firstly, the student sits as close as we did in those days when we didn’t have to social distance. We have the same conversations and the lesson is introduced, aims and objectives discussed, the lesson is very visual too. We may use graphs, tables, articles, presentations, clips, exam papers and many more types of material.

The tutor and student can plan and discuss methods and strategies together, perhaps create a visual plan, look at examples, create notes.

As they begin, the tutor can see the student creating the work, guide and advise them during this process. Seeing the students actual thoughts is a very effective tool in their learning, you can perceive their learning, see where they may struggle or need more guidance.

Watching the work being formed on screen is actually more effective than the student sitting to the side of the tutor.

Additionally, online lessons are portable, the homework is impossible to avoid for the student, they cannot claim to forget their book!

Sometimes, I log on to see the student completing their homework.
And that…. is without any doubt…..brilliant.

One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world.
