Online tutoring makes learning fun, convenient and very flexible for students who are busy or who are living at a distance and want to learn English as a Second Language.
All you need is a computer, webcam and Internet connection to connect live with Teacher Sarah via Skype. Online tutoring using Skype is an effective teaching/learning tool. It allows the student and tutor to communicate face-to-face in beneficial ways that are completely interactive and visual, with the use of features like screen sharing, a whiteboard, file sharing and recording sessions for later viewing.
Online tutoring is the most affordable option for one-on-one tutoring available! The Skype software is free to download and use. Also, all Skype to Skype video calls and voice calls are free. Rates for quality online tutoring range, on average, from $30 to $80 an hour.
Sessions can be arranged based on your needs and schedule. Teacher Sarah can be available in the evening and on weekends, when grade school students are usually available. Daytime hours may be possible for those who prefer morning or afternoon tutoring or are in other areas of the world.
