Often businesses are not upfront saying what they do not offer. This may lack fulfilling the expectation level of the customer. Let’s check what it is for online tutoring…
Your child will learn from different tutors:
The primary aim of taking one-to-one tutoring is to get personalized care of your child’s need. The personalized care is possible only when your child takes session from one tutor. However, many online tutoring companies do not guarantee that your child will learn from single tutor. The tutor keeps on changing employing various teaching styles.
Tutoring online services cannot handle learning disabilities:
Often parents of the child having minor development disorders or dyslexia turn around to online tutoring services to fix the problems the child is facing at the school. Some reputed tutoring centers are equipped to handle such disorders, but other online tutors come with the answer that they cannot identify or manage mental disabilities. So if you have already diagnosed with learning disabilities then look for the tutor who have special skills with advanced learning tools and techniques that manage such disorders.
Online tutoring is a cheaper way than others:
Often online tutoring services claim that they offer cheap and affordable tutoring. However, if your child is academically good but due to lack of time if your child requires some assistance in daily homework then online tutoring is a costly option. In such cases, your child can definitely take help from peer tutoring at school or get low-cost private tutoring.
Online tutoring, one-stop destination for academic help-much like a marketing strategy:
Often online tutoring websites boast as one-stop destination for all kinds of academic help. But the question does it provide superior quality of tutoring to the students who requires assistance in all the subjects? Does it guarantee A+ grade in all the subjects? Perhaps, many of tutoring services do not give expected improvement in academic scores for each of the subjects offered. It seems like “Online tutoring-One stop destination” more serves marketing aspect rather than satisfying quality tutoring needs. Just confirm about the quality standards especially for Math, English, Science tutor.
Offer scholarships but not upfront about it:
None of the online tutoring services offer scholarship or financial aid directly. They do not announce but offer financial aids to children who cannot afford it. Often tutoring companies give some discounts to the children who enroll for some 30-40 hours of tutoring. They even offer more room for discounts on negotiation and client’s financial status.
