Students with strong math skills can get better grades and have a much easier time in STEM courses and exams. Having good math scores can also help them land scholarships or higher paying jobs and a tutor can help with that too.
Online tutors can also provide a level of confidence to shyer students, which may make them feel more positive about their maths classes and studies. Often having a tutor who is able to teach the subject in a way that clicks for them, can have a domino effect and encourage them to participate in class more actively too.
Whether it’s one-off lessons or a longer term commitment, there are plenty of options available for students who need online maths tutoring. Many tutoring companies have their own apps which allow students to schedule a session or upload questions that will be worked on in real-time. Some, like Bramble Tutoring, record each session and add it to their library which means the student can come back to revise on their own at any time.
Larger companies, such as Pearson’s Smarthinking have a lot of tutors but, while they generally have a higher education level than most competitors, they don’t pay their teachers well enough to retain them, so they can sometimes struggle to find and hire the best ones. A newer company that offers online tutoring, Skooli, has a flexible model where students pay by the minute for sessions, rather than a full year subscription.
