Online Tuition: Preparing The Next Generation For The New World Of Work?
At the start of this year, working from home rather than in an office space was a rare occurrence for the majority of workers not only in the United Kingdom, but also around the globe. With the historic impact that coronavirus has had upon our day-to-day lives, however, this has been turned on its head with many workers now happily working from the comfort of their own homes.
This presents a problem for many employees who have been used to the daily routine of working in an office, surrounded by colleagues – how do you maintain the same output of work whilst in the comfort of your own home? Are you able to stay motivated? How independent are your working methods?
For the current workforce, these are questions which are being asked of them presently, however for the next generation of workers this is something which should prove to be less of a problem. This is certainly the case for students who have studied online as they are used to working from a home setting, whilst simultaneously maintaining productivity levels.
In addition to aiding subject-specific progress, online tuition can be seen as excellent preparation for the working world of the future, as more and more businesses are embracing working remotely. With almost 50% of employees working from home in June this year, and a string of businesses committing to remote working in the long-term, preparing students for remote working is extremely important.
Online learners have the benefit of building good habits in terms of studying in the home environment and learning focus amongst potential distractions. Students being tutored online also work on their interpersonal skills; creating rapport with their online tutor and fellow online classmates solely via webcam. Furthermore, the confidence that is garnered from learning in a small-group environment is an extremely transferable skill for our pupils which stands them in good stead for their endeavours post A-level.
If your children are aged between 11 and 18 years old, then we have a selection of classes that have been created to build upon their school lessons and help them to achieve to the best of their ability when it comes to exams. Our online platform has been created with a specific focus on making the student experience as smooth as possible, and ensuring that the progress the student makes is quantifiable under the close tuition of an experienced teaching practitioner. Our September timetable of classes covers the core subjects of English, Maths and Science, as well as a selection of other popular subjects including Geography and Business Studies – if you would like further information about our September classes then please contact us by clicking here.
As well as helping students to achieve their educational goals, our online tuition can also help to build a myriad of transferable skills which will be useful as your child moves on from schooling into education – contact us for more information.
