If there’s one thing the web is good for, it’s bringing people together.
Whether that’s through social networks, message boards, or online tuition, it’s never been easier to find like-minded people who are willing to help. This month I've been focusing on LCF Tutors, a new tuition provider who are quietly proud of their no-fuss approach to online tutoring that takes full advantage of the many doors the web can open. With that in mind, I thought I’d take a look at the top five reasons online tuition might just be the best way to learn.
Reason #5: Online tuition can suit any schedule
Picture the scene: you’re already five minutes late out the door for your private tuition appointment, now the car won’t start! On top of that, you’ve left your wallet on the kitchen table! Sound familiar? It happens to everyone, but with online tuition you don’t need to worry about physically getting anywhere – just sit back in a comfy chair, log in, and learn. It really is that simple. On top of which, you can work with your online tutor to arrange times, dates, (and an attractive price[!]) that work around your schedule and theirs – so everybody’s happy! - LCF Tutors stands out as being one of the few firms to have a dedicated “ebay-style” messaging system, that allows you to do all this without any third-party interference.
Reason #4: Low pressure learning makes for better retention
You’ve possibly found it hard in the past to really concentrate and absorb what’s being taught when you’re in a stuffy classroom or office, perhaps with lots of other learners. By choosing online tuition, you’re making the choice to learn in an environment that really suits you. And when you’re totally comfortable, the chances are you’ll take in much more of what you’re learning. That means you should enjoy better results in the long run – all thanks to online tuition!

Reason #3: A tutor you really get on with
In most learning establishments, if you don’t like or get on with your tutor, it’s tough luck for you. But online tutoring allows you to ‘vet’ your tutors and find one that you really connect with and understand. Again, LCF Tutors' handy messaging system allows tutors/students to connect and get to know each other before committing to anything. Finding the right private tutor can be one of the most effective ways of boosting your chances of succeeding in your learning process. In addition, online tuition also allows you to choose from the largest pool of tutors from around the world, giving you maximum choice. If you are selective, online tuition can therefore really open the door to learning the way you want to, and with a person that you know will teach you most effectively.
Reason #2: Learning at the right pace for you
With online tuition, the power really is in your hands. Group learning often means that if you don’t understand something, you may not get a chance to ask a clarifying question. An online tutor in a one-on-one situation will give you the time you need and work at a pace that suits you, thus making your learning far more effective as it is tailored to you. You do not have the pressure of committing to a course and additional sessions are much easier to book at the click of a mouse.

Reason #1: Getting excited about learning again
For some, thinking about education brings back memories of grey classrooms and yawn-inducing lectures. With online tuition you can leave that idea behind, which for me, would seem one of its biggest attractions. Looking forward to learning is essential at at any level! Due to the interactivity of the learning, and assuming you’ve got a tutor you can engage with, the online learning experience can often be the most effective. Research shows that a higher percentage of students find they genuinely look forward to sessions with their online tutor, compared with traditional classroom learning.
With LCF Tutors, it seems you really can get excited about learning again. If you’re ready to get started, visit LCF Tutors on the web at www.lcftutors.com or call +44 (0)1489 786473.
