Many students have been taking online classes, but parents still haven’t got convinced with the new era of learning and the possibility of meeting their child’s tutor virtually over a video call. Technology has completely changed the perspective of teaching and learning. And with the advancement in virtual classroom training has significantly reduced the time, money and let the student spend more time with their family. And even finding a tutor that can sync with your child’s mind’s grasping capacity and following a long journey to your place and updating themselves with the latest syllabus is hard to find. However, with online tutoring (bimbel online, which is the term in Indonesian), your child gets the opportunity to attend online lectures at any moment with a real curriculum teacher. So with now, let us understand some of the distinctive advantages of virtual classroom tutoring over in-person tutoring.
You can be anywhere around the world, and all you require is a good Internet connection and a platform to connect with your tutor. You might have also faced the issue of finding a local tutor who is proficient in the subject your child wants to learn and can meet the schedule per yours. But with online tutoring, you do not have to worry about the availability as it is flexible and regardless of any time zones or geography.
With the local tutor, you may not be able to make the best selection out of the limited options. And getting into trouble finding a local tutor who will work per your child and your schedule and has expertise in the subject is not what you will prefer. The Internet offers you so many platforms and tutors that are willing to contribute to your child’s success in your budget and in less time. You can have different tutors for different subjects according to the expertise.
Getting to meet your professor and learning the subject at any place you are in the most convenient way of learning. If you want to have a physical meet with your professor and learn, then either of you has to pay for the expense of traveling from one place to another. And this will also come at the cost of wasting your time over travel.
The correct use of technology is beneficial to your child and yourself. Most of us fear that technology is no great for students, but it is not true all depends on how you use it.
