For Online Students

  • What exactly is on-line tuition?

Online tuition is merely a new way to learn or improve your skills through the internet from anywhere rather than at a specific physical school or college. Using the internet, learners are able to interact with tutors to either learn any subject from scratch or improve upon existing skills.

  • Are lessons only written?

Lessons are both Video and Audio and practically performed on board at the same time.

  • Why would I not just enroll at a college or take lessons face-to-face?

Many people do and if this suits your personality and lifestyle then this indeed may be a favorable option. However, some people may feel shy in large classrooms, feel as though they do not get enough attention from a teacher, may not be able to commit to regular lessons, may live a great distance from the nearest college and many parents would not feel comfortable sending children out in the evening.

Online tuition provides the learner with lessons when and where they want, cutting out all the complications. The security, flexibility and cost effectiveness of online tuition appeals to many people.
