online tuitions benefit kids in so many ways that parents don't know- Parenting resources by ZenParent

In the present day world of online marketplaces for all products and services under the sun, it was only a matter of time before online tutoring made its presence felt. Much like telecommuting and online commerce, online tutoring provides some very significant advantages – both educational and logistical. These benefits not only make it competitive to traditional, in-person tutoring, but actually superior to it in many cases. The benefits of online tutoring are myriad, some obvious, others not so much. Here, I list a few of them.

1. Access and Availability

convenienceOnline teaching is not limited by geography or time. Anyone who has tried to deal with the restrictions of having to find a tutor who is competent in the subject, has availability to match your child’s schedule, while being local to reduce commute times, will immediately recognize the invaluable advantage of this. Once you do away with the restrictions of time zones and geography, the search for that elusive perfect teacher becomes a lot easier.


2. Selection from a wider, deeper pool

Additionally, you can find tutors who specialize in different areas, which can enable you to get help in the areas that you need assistance with.


3. Quality of teachers

4. Convenience and ease for both parties

Such a huge plus without even considering all the money saved in terms of fuel costs.


5. Conveyance

Online tutoring is a godsend for such parents trying to coordinate multiple after school activities for more than one child.

6. Ease of adoption

Not so our kids, who are born into technology. In fact it is a big advantage where sessions can be easily recorded for future reference of the students.

Considering the positives and the ease of access online tutoring promises to provide, it certainly looks like it is here to stay! Even possibly the recommended way to go, keeping in mind our ever-clogged city roads and full schedules.
