Home Tutoring Online is an online tutoring service that connects students with experienced teachers and tutors from across the country. Home Tutoring Online is one of the most affordable online tutoring services we have reviewed, not only because students pay by the minute (limiting the amount of money that needs to be spent in order to deal with small problems or ask quick questions) but also because students can decide whether to opt for professional tutors or university ‘student tutors’ (who charge reduced fees). Although mathematics is the main subject covered by Home Tutoring Online, the service does offer a number of additional features such as revision support and online resources that cater for a number of different subjects.
As with many other services we have reviewed in this category, Home Tutoring Online specialises in bringing together students and tutors from across the country and using modern technology to improve the learning experience. Sessions with Home Tutoring Online use the full gamut of online communication resources, including VOIP (Voice-over-Internet-Protocol), interactive ‘whiteboard’ and virtual learning environment, webchat and instant messaging. These resources help students communicate more effectively with their tutors, letting them ask questions and develop a dialogue about a particular topic. This makes it easier to learn, with ‘virtual classroom’ environment closely mirroring traditional study as much as possible.
As well as the lessons themselves, students with Home Tutoring Online have access to a range of additional resources that help to explain difficult concepts or expand on particular areas of interest. Students can enjoy unlimited use of these materials (including exam papers, revision aids, help-sheets and more) free of charge if they are subscribed to receive lessons, meaning even when they are not having a session with a tutor they can still benefit from their membership of the site. Similarly, Home Tutoring Online offers short revision courses in a number of different subjects (more than ten in total), at both GCSE and ALevel standard, for an additional fee. Finally, students can check out the Home Tutoring Online Blog for the latest information about new resources and services available, as well as access great support and help features by phone or email.
All professional tutors with Home Tutoring Online are university graduates holding at least a 2:1 degree in mathematics (or a similar discipline) and a PGCE or similar teaching qualification. Student tutors have varying levels of experience, but all have been rigorously selected and interviewed to ensure they are suitable to teach students of all levels. Home Tutoring Online provides tuition up to and including GCSE and ALevel grade, with all tutors having additional training in the requirements of all of the major examining boards in the UK (so as to ensure that students are taught appropriately and in accordance with examination guidelines).
Home Tutoring Online is an ideal choice if you’re looking for great-value maths tuition, though may lack substance if you require tutoring in other areas. If maths is your child's weak point though, this service offers everything you need at a reasonable price (and with minute-billing, your money can really go a long way!).
