Tutoring via Skype, Facetime or any other form of Internet is
often the best medium to receive tutoring. ADHD ADD,
Dyslexia, Autism, Asperger, Executive Function Disorder and
other learning issues call for Internet lessons. Students whom
receive tutoring on a weekly basis are far more likely to reach
their scholastic goals, and build social skills than if they are
inconsistent in receiving tutorial sessions.

Facetime, Skype and other formats that are similar in nature
greatly increase the likelihood of this taking place. Specifically,
students may seek to cancel due to extracurricular schedule
conflicts, or are sick, or need to travel with their family can
often reschedule. Albeit, if students receiving tutoring in person
need to set up a different time for a tutoring session, it often
leaves them without other times to meet a tutor; this is due
tutors' driving time to and from a students home in order to have
a session take place. There are many cases in which I can
reschedule a tutorial session if I do not need an extra hour or
more to drive to and from a learner’s home.

Some of my students are online for their tutorials and they site
the following reasons for favoring it;my training, experience and
most importantly proven track record in most cases is far
superior than those with less training and experience, which
means they get to work with me because of the Internet when
they would be too far away otherwise; they enjoy being able to
have more flexibility on when we meet for session; they do not
mind having tutorials provided they can still take trips with their
family. For example, a student of mine wanted to continue
tutoring, while visiting relatives on the West coast. He simply
had his lessons with me and still did all the activities with his
relatives, so it was convenient for him. Other students have been
sick and would have to cancel not because they felt too bad to
work, rather they did not want me to catch their airborne health
issue, which could include a mild flew.

In my experience, tutorials through Skype, Facetime, and other
Internet tutoring technology has usually proven to be more
effective for people receive tutoring. Naturally, exceptions are
one hundred percent when they take place; there certainly are
some cases where students need to be met in person.

ADHD ADD, Dyslexia, Autism, Asperger, Executive Function
Disorder issues have been effectively addressed through Skype,
Facetime and other formats in my many years as a learning
specialist tutor.
