It’s been more than half a year since the effect of pandemic has been evident in our day-to-day live and we are moving towards a new normal. Home tutors also need to accept this new normal and adapt in order to continue imparting education with the same level of efficacy.
This requires switching from classroom or home teaching approach to online teaching approach.Private tutors thus need to understand the difference between classroom and digital teaching. This can help them to be effective and still connect with the students in the same way.
- Approach: In classroom teaching, the tutor or teacher is the main focus. In online classroom the focus is the material which is being projected to the students. Hence the teaching material need to be simple yet engaging with combination of visual as well as audio
2. Learning: When teaching in classrooms the content is dynamic and changes as per the group of students. However, in online learning, the content like presentations and files are more or less same and do not vary considerably between groups.
3. Time: In home tuition or physical classrooms there is fixed time for class and sessions. Online tuition is a bit more flexible when it comes to timings.Students can record the online sessions and learn anytime, anywhere
4.Cost: When conduction private tuition, the teacher has to travel or students travel to teacher. Hence there is an element of time and cost in home tuition. However online class practically reduces the time and cost as there is no traveling involved which saves efforts, time and cost of traveling.
