Tutoring: Online or in Person?

by | Mar 2, 2017 | Education

When your child is struggling in school one of the best options is to hire a tutor to help them learn. A tutor will help them learn the material and retain it better than they will on their own, but which method should you use? Traditionally tutoring has been done in person, but thanks to the internet it can now be done online. Both in-person and online tutoring has its advantages.


Online tutoring allows your child to receive their tutoring anywhere there is the internet. This means that if you work late and are not able to drive them to their tutoring lessons, then they can still attend online. This convenience is one of the biggest pluses of having your child’s tutoring done online. This also means that they can get their tutoring done right after school instead of a few hours after when you can get home to drive them.


In-person tutoring definitely has a more personal feel, but can be inconvenient. With in-person tutoring, you must either be able to take your child to the lesson or spend extra money on a tutor who will come to your house to teach your child. The biggest advantage here is that the tutor will be able to watch your child and see if they are struggling rather than having to see it reflected in their work.

No matter which option you choose your child is sure to benefit from tutoring. Tutoring is one of the best ways to improve your child’s grades and will help them get caught back up at school. If you are not able to take your child to their tutoring lessons, then online lessons may be the best choice for you. On the other hand, if you can take them then in-person sessions will offer a more personal lesson.
