How to be a better online tutor

1-Make learning interesting

Learning is more than just textbooks and formula. Constantly find new ways to engage with your students so they stay focused. As the lesson is done online, the duration could be lesser than usual, hence you should always let your student has the chance to speak as it encourages two-way interaction. Some of the ideas to make learning fun: 

  • Share screen and watch a video together regarding the teaching topic 
  • Set up a poll and get your students to vote, this acts as a milestone check and you know if your student has been up to speed.

2- Pay attention to you students

As students have different learning styles, some might not have gotten used to the new normal of learning. As lessons are conducted virtually, the student might be distracted by the internet, social media or even the phone. If you noticed that you are losing him or her, request the student to write something on the whiteboard or answer a question you have posted to him or her.

3- Be in a conducive environment

It is important that you set-up a quiet place for your classes. Make sure there is no distraction in your background (children have curious minds!) and do make sure you and your students can hear each other clearly. Consider investing in a good headset and camera!

4- Get ready your tech

The key to a smooth and interesting online lesson is to utilise the best-suited software and online tools to aid your teaching. As a teacher, make sure you get ready with all your equipment and resources before the class. You might want to consider preparing a simple troubleshooting handbook for your student that you send prior to the start of the lesson. It is always good to set up a protocol when you run into problems and get ready for any contingency plan!
