There are many advantages of one-to-one online tuition. Here are just a few of the reasons why families choose an online tutor:  🌎 In-person tuition limits your search to teachers who live locally. By contrast, online tuition allows you to choose from the best qualified teachers in the UK, regardless of where you live. If you’re looking for an experienced teacher with 11+ school-specific knowledge, or expertise in a shortage A Level subject, such as Chemistry, Physics or Economics, online tuition offers families access to the highest level of expertise.  🕒 One of the main benefits of online tutoring is convenience and flexibility. Without the requirement to travel, there is more flexibility for students to adjust the timings of lessons. Without a fixed location, lessons can continue during holidays, at boarding school, or at both Mum and Dad’s house when children are living in two homes.  🧑‍💻 In many ways, one-to-one online lessons can be more interactive and produce higher quality work than home tuition. For example, it’s easier and quicker to annotate a passage or write an essay on-screen. We use shared Google documents so that teachers can provide feedback on student work in real time and Google drives so that work is saved all in one place at the end of each session.  ✨ Digital tools including screen sharing, white boards and online quizzes are used to make learning interactive. Children are empowered to become leaders in lessons by inviting them to demonstrate their learning and share independent research.

Given the vast selection of digital entertainment available today, nurturing a love for reading in children can pose a challenge. Today, we are sharing our top five strategies aimed at fostering a deeper appreciation for books in your kids.  👏 Model good reading behaviour: Children often mimic the behaviours they see in adults. When they observe you enjoying a book, they’re more likely to develop a positive attitude towards reading. Make reading a visible and regular part of your routine, whether it’s a physical book, e-reader, or even audiobooks.  📖 Read together before bedtime: Bedtime stories offer a special opportunity for bonding and relaxation. Reading aloud not only fosters a love for stories but also helps children develop language skills and imagination. Take turns choosing books or alternate between reading to them and having them read to you, depending on their age and reading level.  📚 Utilise your local library: Libraries are treasure troves of books and resources that are often free to access. Encourage your child to explore different genres and discover new interests by regularly visiting the library together.  💭 Remember all reading is valuable: Encourage your child to read widely and embrace their diverse interests. Whether they enjoy fiction, non-fiction or magazines, every type of reading contributes to their literacy development and intellectual growth. Be open-minded and supportive of their reading choices, and celebrate their enthusiasm for exploring new worlds through books.  🛋️ Create a cosy reading nook at home: Designating a space for reading can make the experience more enjoyable and inviting. Set up a comfortable area with cushions, blankets and a few favourite books within reach. This dedicated reading spot sends a clear message that reading is a valued activity in your home.
