About online tuition
- Pupils and tutors see each other via live video – great for building rapport
- Upload essays or past papers, and work through examples together on an interactive whiteboard
- Lessons fit effortlessly into family life. You can have lessons at school before sports, at home, or even on holiday.
- All of our online tutors are teachers, have been DBS checked and personally interviewed.
All you need to get started is a computer, laptop, iPad or other tablet, broadband internet connection and microphone. Your online tuition is also enhanced if you have a web-camera, headset – with headphones and microphone, scanner and graphics tablet. Most Crescent tutors tend to use Zoom or Skype as the platform and then add on whiteboard services like Aww App which improve the lessons. These are free software to get an account and use.
We are currently trialing Bramble with our tutors and students, this online platform provides an excellent online learning experience.
