Facetime, Zoom, Skype Tutor, coach and author of this short writing about Internet tutoring, John Toker, M.Ed. LD K-12, M.A. has a site called: Learn Differently Tutor
Tutoring via Zoom, 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, Zoom, 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.
