If you have been keeping up with our recent posts or follow the education system, you know Online learning is here to stay! Teaching Gurus has implemented strategies on its new online tutoring platform that works!
It all starts by picking a platform that is easily accessible to all individuals across the world. Teaching Gurus has chosen Zoom as its platform to conduct all our online learning services. Zoom is a great way for students and teachers to communicate online and really understand the whole learning experience. This platform is very easily used by students in high school, middle school, and even younger elementary students!
The key features that made us pick this platform are its screen sharing and whiteboard options. The screen-sharing options are a great tool for tutors and students to share with each other their screens and know exactly what is going on in real-time. Tutors can view assignments, questions, and homework from the students just like they would in person all from the comfort of their home. They Share screen feature also lets students and teachers annotate on the screen which excels online learning! This is just one of the great online tutoring options that are available.
The whiteboard is a great tool for tutors to use with students because it’s exactly like a whiteboard in a classroom. The teacher can draw, write, and explain any topics to students as if they were in a classroom setting! This feature will ease in transition from in-person tutoring to online tutoring for different subjects and grade levels.
Many students have already successfully completed our Summer catch up program which was all fully online. This was an online course we introduced over the summer break for students to get ahead in preparation for this year’s online school.
The Teaching Gurus team has trained tutors that use the tools in the zoom applications to make the most of the online learning. Our qualified tutors are trained and tested each week before being put with students. We want to make sure every child feels comfortable learning online and make the time with us count.
