In this article we discuss the importance of the 21st century skills your child is required to have when they leave school or university.
Private Online Tutoring
Online tuition is an incredibly effective solution for students of all ages. The private tutors we introduce are all highly experienced in delivering their lessons online and can teach as expertly as if they were there in person, meaning your child can learn from the very best tutors, wherever they are in the world. At Simply Learning Tuition, we only introduce online tutors who are vetted to our usual high standard, which includes a face-to-face interview.
Is online tuition effective?
Absolutely! Again and again, feedback from our clients suggests that online tutors successfully impart far more than academic proficiency; they help build confidence, communication skills, planning and organisation, time management. These key attributes will benefit your child greatly throughout their academic career and into later life. Tutors make lessons interactive and engaging through the use of the most up-to-date screen sharing and white board technologies. Online tuition also works well for children with learning difficulties and we can introduce tutors who specialise in this area.
Is online tuition safe?
With Simply Learning Tuition, every online tutor is personally known to us and has been through the same rigorous vetting procedure as an in-person tutor. This includes an enhanced DBS check, two reference checks and more importantly a full interview process.
How Online Tuition Works
Finding an online tutor is quick and easy. The first step is to contact one of our Education Consultants by either calling our office or submitting an enquiry form. We will ask the right questions to ensure that your child is matched to the correct tutor. The process is just as straightforward as when you request a tutor who teaches in person. We take some extra precautions around connectivity issues and discuss your goals carefully to ensure that the best tutor is introduced.
Reviews of our Online Tutors
Student at Perm Ballet School
How do you keep a brilliant ballet dancer on track with their academic studies when you are 10,000 miles away? We introduced tutors to work with a London GCSE student, who was studying at one of Russia’s leading ballet schools.
Twice weekly Skype supervisions and daily online tuition provided an effective replacement for lessons at the boy’s public school. His parents trusted us to manage their son’s learning; safe in the knowledge that their son was still following his dreams – and completing his GCSE’s.
Student at Westminster School
We were contacted by the parents of an Indian girl studying at Westminster, who was having problems with creative writing. We introduced her to a tutor who worked with her at her home in Knightsbridge, then remotely with her when the family returned to their main residence in Delhi.
On top of that, we also matched her to two of the very top specialist IB tutors for her subjects, one of whom happened to live in Cornwall, the other in Africa. It didn’t matter – their online tuition continued for a period of 16 months, and she achieved an IB score of 40.
Student in Japan
We were contacted by the parents of a student attending a leading international school in Japan. Their daughter did not get on well with her schoolteacher and the family could not find a local IB Biology tutor in the local area.
We introduced an experienced IB tutor (someone who really knew the intricacies of the syllabus) who worked online. The tuition worked brilliantly and the student got 40 in her IB. The patents asked us to introduce a tutor for four additional IB subjects as well as the Extended Essay and TOK.
Our clients in Dubai were preparing for the UK 11+ for entrance to leading schools, including Westminster and Colet Court. We introduced a tutor who provided Skype tuition each week to develop each child’s literacy and numeracy. The tutor worked on creative exercises and some past papers, using web-cams and white-board software, with a careful exchange of scanned documents to assess handwriting and workings out that cannot be expressed cleanly on the screen.
As the exams drew closer, the family flew to the UK for some supervised tests under exam conditions and we arranged a mock interview with a prep-school Headmaster. This ensured the children were prepared for their 11+ but it also meant that they enjoyed day to day school more, coming to lessons with more confidence and passion.
We introduce experienced online tutors for all the key academic subjects - from Science and Maths to English and History.

Every online tutor we introduce has an outstanding academic background, proven track record and passion for working with young people. They will bring these qualities to your son or daughter's screen and find fun and engaging ways for your child to learn.
