What are Online Sessions?
Sometimes, it just isn’t possible to meet in person. Maybe you live on the other side of the world, or maybe the planets just haven’t aligned our schedules. Whatever the reason, we’re here to help. We can meet you online at your convenience.
An online session is a private tutoring session. It provides the same quality service as does an in-person one. You register in exactly the same way. You meet your teacher for the same amount of time and at the same rates. And you enjoy all the same advantages of personalized attention.
The difference is that you’re not in the same room, and the service at this time cannot be shared.
Right now, to meet online we use Skype, a service provider of free HD video calls. All you have to do is install the Skype program on your computer or mobile device and then share your contact information with your teacher. Once connected, your teacher and you can talk to each other, see each other, and even view each other’s screens if you like. You can share presentations and documents just as though you were in person.
