We are big fans of online tuition! Although it can never replace all the benefits of face-to-face tuition, it does provide an effective alternative.

About online tuition with Simply Learning Tuition

  • Tuition is provided by the same highly qualified and vetted tutors as regular one-to-one tuition
  • The preferred platform is Skype with shared screen and whiteboard facilities. Our tutors will teach your children how to set these up – (although they probably already know!)
  • Tutors adjust their teaching style to suit the online system


The Simply Learning Tuition ‘best practice’ model for online tuition

  • We ask that students email partially completed work or question sheets to their tutors in advance.
  • The tutor will in turn email a copy of their notes to the tutee in advance of the tutorial
  • If possible, tutors will focus on questions that can be answered orally.
  • All our tutors use webcams so that your child can see who they are talking to! If your child would like to, they can also use a webcam – the choice is completely theirs.

The advantages of online tuition

  • There are no geographic limitations. If you live far from London and just want a few hours of tuition each week, online tuition give you access to the best tutors in the country
  • Children are increasingly using online learning within schools and university – becoming familiar with this style of learning is useful for the future.


Considerations about online tuition

  • Students do need a relatively high level of IT knowledge and you must have a strong internet connection
  • Online tuition does not work so well for questions that require long or detailed answers or calculations that are normally done on paper
  • If your son or daughter needs significant motivation, or is disorganised and often fails to turn up for meetings, you will need to check that they are online!
  • Parents don’t meet their children’s tutors (you can of course speak to them online, or by phone). We still provide detailed feedback about each lesson and your child’s tutor is available to speak to you.
