Online Tutors to Improve the Efficiency in English Language
- May 18, 2014
It’s a common sight in many Philippines households, a student struggling with the home works and the parents are tired, busy or at lost to help them out. However, the emergence of on-demand tutoring somewhat changed the picture. Now, the kids can easily access an online tutor who can help them in their studies or assist them to finish their homework.
In Philippines, most of the students, whether they are in per-schools or high schools, look for English tutors. Even a few days back, students struggling with their language skills, often seek the help of a private tutor specializing in English. However, private tutors are expensive and the students sometimes have to travel long to avail tuition from renowned teachers. Moreover, such assistance is restricted to few hours in a week only. They cannot expect assistance from private tutors whenever they face a problem solving grammar exercises or studying a chapter. Parents often suffer from financial crunches after paying their children’s tuition fees.
The scenario has changed a lot with so many promising online tutors available just a click away. The students can connect with these tutors 24/7. If they have any query, the tutor is there to help them out. The quick fixes ease the stress of both students and their parents. Online tutors are especially helpful for the students:
- Residing at remote location
- Having tight budget
- Suffering from tight time frames
Do students willingly accept the online tutors?
Every child is different. While some have no difficulty to accept the guidance of online tutors, many students are skeptical when they first signed up for an online tutoring service. But after picking up a tutor, who helps them to strengthen their understanding of English subject, they are elated. They can interact with the virtual teacher whenever they fail to understand the meanings of certain words or are struggling to figure out an answer.
The students can connect with respective teachers from their smartphones, tablets, laptops or desktops. Therefore, communicating with an e-tutor is possible from anywhere and anytime.
Do the online tutors only help to solve grammar exercises?
It is a misconception that the online tutors only help to solve the English homework. However, this way of thinking is not correct. Similar to any other in-person teachers; the e-tutors also try to develop good vocabulary skills among the students. They use different techniques so that the students can enjoy learning English. Apart, from the general school courses, the virtual teachers often provide students short interesting paragraphs and some related questions. If the student feels any problem solving them, the teacher will work with him or her to find the possible answers.
The virtual teachers will prepare a lesson plan keeping in mind the guidance you will need for grammar and vocabulary.
Are all online teachers excellent?
Quality of online scholastic support can also be uneven. Your children may not find a particular virtual teacher helpful. However, from a bad experience do not conclude that online tutors are not effective. There are several websites from where you can have a list of online tutors. You can switch to another tutor, the moment you will find the one from whom you are seeking assistance is not ideal for you. There is no compulsion that you have to connect with a tutor residing at your city or in your country. Tutors residing at any part of the world can help you out.
This is especially helpful for students willing to travel abroad for higher education. Such students can ask for help in English language from teachers of that location. The qualified online tutors of that region can better train you. If you are not going to select English for higher studies, it is mandatory to have a certain level of understanding and fluency of this language. English is a worldwide accepted language and when you are traveling to a different country for education, English will be the mode of communication.
However, the online tutors can only guide you to develop a thorough understanding of the English language. Along with that you have to study hard and complete the assignments of school and those suggested by the virtual tutor. It will be extremely beneficial, if you block the session with a virtual tutor with a list of questions and the problems in your assignments.
