Tutor Class is a tutoring platform that has been developed for the sole purpose of helping students and parents find a suitable tutor.
Our state-of-the-art online classroom has been specially designed so that both student and tutor will feel like they are sitting face to face.
The safety of every student and tutor is of paramount importance to us.
For the safety of our students and tutors every online tutoring session is recorded.
We will not tolerate bullying, bad language, abuse, inappropriate questions or images. Anyone found to be threatening the safety of our students or tutors will have their profile deleted, and they will be reported to the authorities.
You can either contact tutors directly or leave a request on the message board and wait for a tutor to get back to you. Once you have made contact with your tutor you can ask for a free meet-the-tutor session at a pre-arranged time.
At a free meet-the-tutor taster, you can discuss your needs with the tutor before committing to tutoring sessions.
There are a number of advantages to online tuition:
For safety and online payment security a student must have someone over the age of 18 who is their sponsor. This can be a parent, guardian or carer whose account will be linked to the student’s account.
A meet-the-tutor session is a free 15-minute session that gives you the opportunity to consult with a tutor and discuss your needs before committing yourself to any lessons. This taster session also familiarises you with the online classroom.
Online tutoring sessions are provided on a pay-as-you-go basis.
We recommend using a headset or headphones so that you don’t encounter problems with keyboard noise and echo, both of which can be distracting during a lesson.
All our tutors are asked to use a graphics tablet.
Students can use the text tool or their mouse to write on the whiteboard however for ease of use we recommend using a graphics tablet.
The Huion H420 graphics tablet is available on Amazon or ebay for approximately £20.
