We first started using Skype during a blizzard that rolled in right before the March SAT one year. Students couldn’t get to us, so we used Skype and an online whiteboard to tutor them online. Some liked it so much that they continued to see us from their living rooms even though they lived a few miles from the office.
With students around the world, we now use Skype every day. It is exciting to walk through the office and see tutors and counselors smiling at students in Italy and Switzerland, Columbia and Chile, China and Australia.
Skype works very well for most students; sometimes parents are uncomfortable with the idea but students communicate with their peers on video chat every day. If online tutoring is more convenient, try a session to see if you learn just as much as you would in person!
