"Hi Scott, I just wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you how wonderful we think Tom is.

How it works.
Our tutors use cutting edge online tutoring platforms with an interactive whiteboard. They can also record every session allowing pupils to replay what they’ve learnt over and over.
There are many online tutoring platforms in the marketplace. One of our favourites is Bramble. Here’s a video which explains a bit more about how online tutoring works, and why its so effective, for parents, pupils and tutors.

Why Choose Online Tutoring?
1. It’s more time practical
More often than not, the hardest thing about finding a tutor is not getting the ideal person, but finding the ideal time. Between parents having jobs and kids having busy after-school schedules and tutors having other commitments, finding that magical hour on a Tuesday evening when everyone is available can be tricky. It can be near-impossible for a tutor do more than two jobs per evening with travel taken into account, but online gives them far more time, and far greater availability. And because it’s more convenient for tutors, you will also have a wider range of brilliant candidates to choose from, and will usually find someone faster.
2. Regular Contact
Because our tutors have already been in contact with their students via online platforms, they are often in contact more regularly between sessions. Students benefit from this increased communication, as the tutoring can be more of a continuous dialogue than just a weekly one-hour session.
3. Greater flexibility
With online tutoring, it is much easier to account for last minute changes, having to bring a lesson back, or the tutor/student being suddenly unavailable. Without having to worry about travel or potential delays, it is usually much easier to rearrange.
4. Technology as a force for good
Our tutors have said that one of the best things about online tutoring is that it gives you more teaching options. The use of an online whiteboard and the possibility of sending files, gives them freedom to be more creative with their teaching – while still interacting face to face!
5. Perfect for independent minds
By GCSEs and A-levels, most students are organising their own time and activities. They require less parental intervention. Online tuition allows students to take ownership of their learning and work more independently. They can be in direct contact with the tutor and don't need to rely on everything being sorted out by a parent, which is usually a positive step.
6. It's cost effective
Due to the lack of travel time and costs for tutors, online tutoring is cheaper to run than face-to-face sessions.
7. Parent's are impressed
We’ve spoken to many parents who've opted for an online tutor for their kids. The response has been overwhelmingly positive:
‘I am very happy with the Arabic tutor, Nizar. He is excellent on so many levels. I also feel Omar’s progress. It is excellent to have this option of tutoring via Skype as I find it very effective and convenient.’ Parent, Year 5 pupil – online Arabic tuition
‘We’re very happy with Thomas.’ Parent, Year 11 pupil – online coding lessons
‘The one to one attention from Minerva’s Tutors has been an invaluable boost for my children. The flexibility of online tuition makes it an ideal resource that I would definitely use again. I would absolutely recommend Minerva.” Parent, Year 11 – another happy online tuition parent.
