Online Tutoring Workshop

Overview

Tutoring is a great way for current and preservice teachers to help students and earn extra income in their spare time. Traditionally, a tutor visits a student at a common location. Between scheduling appointments around busy calendars, finding the right spot to meet, and travel demands, coordinating in-person tutoring can be a hassle. What if there were a better way to tutor that could overcome these challenges? With the availability of new technologies, it’s no longer necessary for a tutor and student to meet in the same physical location.

Here’s where online tutoring saves the day!

Tutoring sessions can be run using video conferencing programs and a variety of online tools. With online tutoring, the tutor can meet the student face-to-face without the need to travel. Scheduling a meeting is as convenient as turning on your computer. With all of the web-based tools available for teaching and learning, online tutoring sessions can be just as beneficial as traditional tutoring, and maybe even more so! In a common, online workspace, a student and tutor can draw, type, and chat together, all in realtime.
