How To Prepare For an Online Tutoring Session?

“You don’t need any preparation for an online tutoring session” now that’s where the myth begins and blunders happen.

Online tutoring lessons are a lot more than just turning on your device and logging into your classroom. You do need preparation for your online learning session. Start with technicalities. Before your class begins, be prepared with :

1.  A good and smooth running internet connection

Technical interruptions in between your classes might come as a great hindrance and break the flow of your learning, so choose a room where you have a smoothly running network.

What if you still face a connection disruption?

Even after choosing a perfect spot with a high range of networks. If you face any sort of network or connection issues during your class you can refresh your internet connection to solve the same, if it’s not fixed after that contact your service provider to solve the issue.

2. Don’t shy from the camera

To stay connected with your online tutor throughout the lesson, cameras from both sides must be turned on. Constant reactions make the learning interesting, so make sure your webcam/front cam is perfectly working and is turned on. Sometimes there might be disruptions because of the camera. In that case, make sure your mic is turned off when not in use.

3. Choose a silent and hassle-free environment

Learning in a disturbing environment breaks your concentration, your attention gets disrupted, and you can hardly focus on your lesson, so to take your lesson choose a disruption-free environment. If you cannot find an entirely peaceful place, use headphones. Noise cancellation makes it easier for you to avoid the chaos that disturbs your learning and focus better.

4. Revise your previous lessons

Always revise your lessons before you login into your online class. Before moving forward with your syllabus, you should have your already taught syllabus complete. Make sure you don’t jump onto another topic before clearing one. Revising the lessons can draw your attention to many new things which you might not have noticed earlier. Always make sure that you revise your lessons on your own on the very same day it has been taught to you so that you can point out the topics which need more attention hand in hand.

5. Make a list of your doubts and ask your tutor

Instead of interrupting an ongoing lesson, keep marking your doubts and ask them by the end of the lesson or the better idea is during revision keep marking your doubts and make a list of the same ask your tutor to schedule a doubt-solving session by the end of the chapter or topic so that you can solve them all together in the class with your tutor, don’t leave anything unattended so that you don’t face trouble in the future.

Always solve new questions about the topic you had doubts about. If that causes any difficulty, politely ask your tutor to explain the same again.

6. Self-study

Apart from your school and tuition lessons, make sure to have time for your self-study so that you can track your understanding level and learn accordingly, and it’s always better to self-revise your lessons. Set a timetable which should include at least an hour and a half slot for self-study where you can sit by yourself and practice your lessons on your own.

7. Understand your tutor’s role

Your tutors are there to guide you. It’s you who’s going to learn and understand things. Make sure you and your tutor are on the same pace if you feel that things are rushing too fast for you to ask your tutor politely to slow down. It’s very important for you and your tutor to have a good understanding where you can express your difficulties freely and both of you can work on their betterment together.

8. Look for extra material

Once you’re done with the topic from the books on your syllabus, look out for extra information from the other similar book. You can also solve sample papers or ask your tutors to share some questions or sample papers with you and try to solve them.

Conclusion

To stand out and perform well in class, preparation is the main key for students and doesn’t it feel great to enter a class fully prepared where you’re confident and aware, that you can answer the questions, and ask doubts which might help others too.
