Online Tutoring: Anytime, Anywhere, Anyplace

Quintessentially Education & Partners have been providing live online tutoring around the world for years. They can provide the same great service and excellent outcomes with live online tutoring as in-person. The tools and online platforms that our tutors use are state-of-the-art, and most students are entirely comfortable with an online interface. Two features of live online tutoring that are worth highlighting are convenience and session recording. Students and families can schedule sessions of any length down to 15 minutes, meaning that students who have just a few questions can conveniently work ad hoc. Tutors and students can also easily capture lessons and explanations by recording sessions and screenshots.

Remote Academic Support & Time Management Assistance

As schools close but schooling continues remotely, students will still have regular assignments to complete and submit on time that will count towards a final grade. All students need to learn to manage their workload and deadlines, especially before going off to college or university. It is a lot harder to do, however, when you are at home, surrounded by distractions, and not in school and with your teacher every day. Our tutors have developed an academic support programme specifically to support students (and parents) who have to work from home. Don’t let the schoolwork slip while your kids are not in school. An education professional can help students manage deadlines, work on larger-scale projects, and use their time at home effectively. Help can be tailored to suit each student.

Example support includes the following academic supervision and reporting:

  • Twice daily check-ins with each student.
  • Verifying all submissions on the school portal (for both quality and timeliness).
  • Twice weekly parent reports.
  • Subject Matter Expert tutoring (Maths, Science, English, all academic subjects covered).
