Are lessons online or in person?
Based on the needs and constraints of the student and the tutor and their locations, our tutoring can ONLY be done online. We use Zoom as our default option, but the tutor is able to use any live video tool for online tutoring.
How does online tutoring work?
Online tutoring means that the lesson takes place using one of the many communication tools available on the Internet, like Zoom, Skype, Windows Live, Google Meet, Yahoo Messenger, etc.
Is online tutoring better than traditional, in person tutoring?
No telecommunication tool can be as effective as a face-to-face lesson, but the results of online tutoring are generally very satisfactory, also thanks to the high quality of the communication tools and Internet connections available today.
In fact, online lessons have some important advantages over traditional lessons: they can be much cheaper, don’t require students or teachers to travel, and can be much more flexible as regards their frequency, duration and scheduling. Tutoring sessions can be arranged very quickly, and the tutors can answer questions and give help in real time when the need arises.
Does Tutor Pass recommend a specific tool for online lessons?
Yes, we do. Our system utilises Zoom as our main communications tool. There are many excellent free tools available online like Skype, Windows Live, Google Talk, Yahoo Messenger and other tools that are also for online learning. Your tutor will communicate with you before your session which tool they prefer to use, if its not the default Zoom.
Do I need to install any special software for tutoring or learning?
Please do download Zoom here. The tutoring sessions are done using common online communication tools, and for most online sessions you will need to install Zoom. Do they download Microsoft Teams and Google Meet, just in case.
