Until a year ago I conducted all my tutoring face-to-face, with students either coming to my house or me driving to theirs. Whilst this worked well in a densely populated area, a move to a more rural location meant that travel times became increasingly unrealistic, so I decided to investigate providing tuition online.
Initially sceptical myself, I researched a variety of platforms before settling on a solution. I can honestly say that it is as effective as being in the same room and have had many students who I used to see face-to-face, who I now tutor exclusively online.
The technology is simple to use. We connect through the internet via Skype for voice and video and share an electronic whiteboard on which I can pre-load material or write on interactively.
