Online learning and tutoring are not new services. In fact, Teachers on Call has been offering online tutoring and enrichment for years!
Given the current climate related to COVID-19, with people respecting the recommendations to stay home, online tutoring is being explored by more families for students of all ages – even as young as kindergarten.
Are you in this position and are interested in learning more about online tutoring for your son or daughter? If so, here are some frequently asked questions about Teachers on Call’s online service:
How does online tutoring work?
Online support allows students the convenience to access tutoring support from their computer or electronic device. Our approach to online tutoring offers many interactive features including an online whiteboard, interactive video and sound communication, and screen sharing for resources and materials.
Will I have the same tutor for every online session?
Yes, as with in-person tutoring, we continue to offer our signature personalized one-on-one relationship-based approach with online tutoring.
While remote learning is in place for my child, how can a tutor help?
Since our tutors are teachers, and we use a curriculum-based approach to tutoring, our tutors can help fill in the gaps with personalized one-on one-instruction – no matter whether you’re attempting to homeschool or just need to make up for reduced classes over the remainder of the year.
What is the online session length?
While the hourly cost remains the same as in-person tutoring, there is a flexible 30 minute minimum for online tutorials since there is no travel involved. Any additional tutoring continues to be in 15-minute increments.
Is online tutoring available for all subjects and grades?
Teachers on Call offers online tutoring from grades K-12 in all subjects and grades, including core subjects of Math, Science, English, French, Reading & Numeracy skills and more.
How do I sign up or find more information?
Feel free to reach out to the Teachers on Call team.
We are thinking of you and your children, and we hope the transition to remote learning at school is smooth. We are here to help with the transition or to answer any questions you may have!
