Online Tutoring Services
Tutors on Wheels has provided exceptional, one-on-one, private in-home tutoring for the last 15 years. We pride ourselves on providing holistic and individualized high-quality services to students to ensure their academic success. As we look toward the future and think about the needs of our students and families, we recognize the value and possibilities in today’s technology, and we are excited to announce the launch of our new Online Tutoring Platform!
Online Tutoring is very effective. Research concluded that e-learning can increase information retention by up to 60% (Efficiency in Learning, 2006, Clark, Nguyen & Sweller). Our online tutoring platform increases online lesson effectiveness by providing students with study tools such as private recording clips so students can focus on improvement areas at their own pace. Parents can view lesson recordings and clips to ensure instruction and help students improve.
Students are usually excited about taking their tutoring online. Parents, on the other hand, may have some reservations on the efficacy of online tutoring. We understand, and we’re here to address your concerns.
The online experience is just like in person tutoring. With streaming video and audio, student and tutor can interact just like in the real world. Collaborative, real time whiteboards allow students to see what tutors are writing, and vice versa. Today, most students have smartphones with incredible photo capabilities. Students can simply take a picture of their homework, exam, or notes and upload them onto an online collaborative whiteboard for their tutor. Tutors can see and correct students’ mistakes in real time — just like in person. The student can walk through how she approached the problem for her tutor in real-time. The tutor can immediately course correct the student and demonstrate the right approach. This significantly aids the learning process.
Students and tutors can also participate in audio, video, and text chat during the session, and lessons online can be recorded for the students’ (and parents’) review anytime and anywhere, even on mobile devices! Reviewing and internalizing recorded lessons can help increase achievement scores. Recordings can give parents and students peace of mind. With online tutoring, the student can receive the help she needs anytime. This can be done either through homework help hours / on-demand tutoring from your tutors or through asynchronous video tutorials when your student is too busy to attend a live lesson.
