How tutors can earn extra bucks over the summer

The days get longer, and the weather becomes warmer during the summers, and teachers start dreaming about continuing their tutoring, and they do not want their income to stop during the summer vacations. There are some of the ideas which can help those tutors to earn some extra cash during the summers. Summer vacation can be the best time for these tutors to earn extra money and to achieve their financial targets. Some of the best ways to earn extra bucks during the summer are:

Work for the city: Overtime working at the job is one of the best ways to earn extra money. For the tutors, overtime working is searching for some additional work within their own city. There are usually a lot of schools in every city that offers summer school programs and summer activities during the summer vacations. These schools usually allow the kids to have fun during the summer vacation which is loved by all the kids. Also, these summer programs provide the opportunity to interact with the kids in a complete dissimilar atmosphere. These schools require teachers who can motivate these students and can guide them to the goal and the objective of the program. This can be the best option for the tutors to get paid during the summer vacations.

Private Tuitions: Taking private tuitions is another the best and the easiest way to earn extra money for the tutors during the summer vacations. The tutors can offer home tuitions during the summer vacations and spread the knowledge even during the holidays. There are usually a lot of students who want to study the next class syllabus in advance because this helps those students to understand the chapters more easily. Also, there are many of the parents who want their children to study during the holidays as well because this does not let their children forget the syllabus. Hence, the tutors to go their home for teaching them or also they can call those students at their home for teaching them. Thus, the tutors will be able to earn extra money during the summer vacations. There is another option for the tutors to provide private tuitions in the evening time. This will let the tutors meet the parents of the children and also some other neutral location.priv copy

There are a lot of parents who are ready to pay hundreds of dollar to the college students to teach their children. Usually, parents think that the college students can teach their children better than the professional tutors as the college students have a deep knowledge about the subjects, and they can explain it better. Also, the college students can understand the feeling of the students in a way better than the teachers. Hence, most of the parents prefer the college students to teach their children. Thus, there is a great opportunity for the college students to make some extra money during the summer vacation by teaching the local school students.

Teachers Pay Teachers: It is a new concept that especially has been introduced for the tutors so that they can earn some extra money. teacherpayteacher copy

According to this concept, the teachers hire some other teacher, and they pay them for teaching the students. For example; suppose there is a tutor ‘A’ who has hired some of the other tutors B, C and D. There are 50 students who give $20 per hour to the head tutor ‘A’. The teacher B, C and D teach those students and get paid $18 per hour. This is a concept which has benefits for all the students and B, C and D are already getting paid for teaching, and the students are paying for being tutored. Further ‘A’ is already taking the commission from the money that students give him/her. Thus, this is the best concept for earning extra money during the summer vacations and also during the school times.

Summer Day Care: Running a summer day care program is also one of the best ways to make extra money apart from the actual salary. The parents are usually spending hundreds of dollars during the summer vacations to send their children to a summer day care or a camp which gives them lessons for life and extra knowledge about the studies. It has mostly been noticed that the parents who work, have a huge list of need and demands for their children. Those parents usually demand the best quality and affordable child care centres for their children. The parents get usually convinced to seek admission for their children in a day care of the same tutor as in their children’s school. Also, those parents get ready to pay as much as amount as the tutors ask for because the parents think that the tutor will take care of their children in the school as well after the summer vacation ends. Thus, the tutors can easily earn a lot of extra money during the summer vacations by investing a very small amount of money.

There are some of the things that should be kept in mind while starting a day care:-

  • They owner should know about the licensing laws within the state, and the owner is also supposed to be the first aid certified and CPR as well.
  • A contract is needed to be made that clearly state the hours of business, a complete fee structure and policies.

Online Tutoring: Since the schools get closed during the summer holidays, the tutors stay free at home and usually they do not have much work to do. Online tutoring is the best option for the tutors who want to teach the students during the summer vacations. There are a number of tutors who only know how to teach the students, and they cannot do some other work. Hence, online is also almost the same as teaching in the schools and colleges. The teachers, who want to get paid by some extra money, can start online tutoring and can earn money by teaching the students over the internet.onlinetutoring copy

A person does not need to be a highly educated person to teach the younger students from schools. Thus, it is also very easy for the students of colleges to make extra money by teaching the school students. There are many online websites that offer online tutors for the students. The college students can also register on those online tutoring websites, and the website will provide them students to teach and those students will pay money to them.

Teach Different Languages: This is especially beneficial for the tutors or the people who have knowledge about different languages. The person, who is fluent in some other languages than the native language, can teach how to speak these languages and hence can earn extra money. Thus, it can be said that speaking another language is not just a skill, but it is also the best way for them to earn extra money.

There is also another opportunity for the tutors to earn money who can speak different languages. They can also try in a tourism company to earn extra money. There are thousands of people who travel the world during the summer vacations, and they usually cannot speak all the languages. This is a good way for the people to guide those tourists and earn extra money during the summer.

Exam Marking: Exam marking is another way of making extra money during the summer vacations which usually requires a person to be a qualified teacher or having a recent teaching experience. The summer vacations come after the final examinations of the students. The question papers of the final examinations of those students need to be checked and given marks, but the teachers are also usually on the vacations during summer. The teacher who checks and gives marks to the students are paid per question paper. Thus, the tutors get paid during the summer vacations as well by just making the question papers of the students. Thus, exam marking is also one of the best ways to earn extra money during the summer vacations.

Paid Internship: People nowadays have become so enthusiastic that they are always excited to learn things, instead of sitting and getting bored during the summer vacations. The paid internship is the best option for such people who want to earn extra money. The most important thing about a paid internship is that people get a chance to learn a lot of things and also they get paid for the same. This is a double beneficial thing for the people who want to learn as well as the people who have a desire of earning money. Thus, paid internship can also be a good opportunity for learning as well as earning for the people during the summer vacations. Apart from the students, the tutors can also apply for a paid internship for learning and earning as there is no age limit for learning.

Tips for tutor before deciding their hourly rate

When it comes to a profession of tutoring, many of the things might enter the mind where, why and how to start. Some of the tutors have a strong desire to help the students while some just have to earn money. It is often found that online tutoring is a mixture of these two kinds of tutors which is of course pretty much common. One of the trickiest ideas is to consider how much you need to charge for the tutoring services that you provide. The most complicated questions for the tutors are; what should they expect? How much should they earn? How much should they charge? Moreover, most importantly how can they decide their hourly rate?

A survey was conducted in 2013 by “The First Tutors” which has introduced the estimation that the private tutors are being paid an average of £22.5 per hour for the online tuitions across the United Kingdom. It has also been found by the survey that the rural cities are paying a bit more to the online tutors than that of the others.

Nobody actually can give the idea of how much an online tutor should charge for his/her service. It is all up to them. All that can be suggested to the online tutors is that they need to balance between the two things; one is that they should not undervalue themselves and the second thing is that they must also not let the students turn away. Actually, it is very difficult to maintain the balance between these two things but the fact is that there is, unfortunately, no other formula which can be applied to figure out the price per hour of online tutoring. However, keeping all these things in mind, a little guidance can be offered to the online tutor about how they can decide their hourly rate. Qualification, Location and the subjects offered are the three most important factors that should be considered for determining the price per hour of tutoring. Some of the other important factors that should be assumed while setting up the hourly price are:-

Education and skills: The level of education and the degree of skills are the most important things for a tutor to be considered for setting up the hourly price.Edu&skill copy

A tutor should firstly know about his/her personal skills of teaching and make those skills the base of determining the price per hour. The highly educated tutors usually expect much more money that the other tutors but sometimes even the highly educated tutors do not have good skills in teaching. Also, the tutors with low education can expect a bit higher amount of money if they have advanced skills in teaching. Thus, both the level of education and the advancement of personal skills should be considered for deciding the price for tutoring.

Experience: It is a human tendency that the experienced people expect a bit more than the people having less or no experience. The reason behind this is that the experience makes people perfect. The higher the experience is, the more perfect the people are. The tutors, who have less or no experience of teaching, should not set their prices too high as they can charge more after having some experience. The experience of teaching makes the skills more advanced and more effective which are helpful for the students. Thus, the tutors can charge as much as their experience is.exp copy

Availability of tutors and the subjects offered: The tutors should think about the availability of the other online tutors and the availability of the subjects offered before they decide the rate for tutoring. If there are many tutors available for the students, then they should not charge much. If the other available tutors do not have many levels of education, skills and experience, then this is the most beneficial thing for the tutor who is having more experience and grown skills. The tutors with a bit more experience and a bit higher level of education can charge even more than that of the other tutors even if there are a lot of many tutors available.

Also, the tutors should consider the subject offered while deciding the price for tutoring. For example; the tutor offering online tutoring in science and maths can charge a bit more than the tutors who offer English subject.

Also, the tutors can charge the highest if the subject that they offer is rarely offered but highly demanded. For example; a tutor is offering financing subject which is very hard, but the tutor teaches in such a way that the students learn the subject easily. Also, there are not other tutors available who offer finance. In this case, the tutor can charge as much as he/she wants as people will get ready to pay because there are no other tutors available who offer this subject.

Thus, it can be said that the availability of the tutors and the subject which the tutors offer are the two very important things that should be examined by the tutors before determining the price for online tutoring.

The requirement of Tuition: The level of requirement of tuitions is another factor which must be acknowledged by the tutors before setting up the tuition price. The tutors should firstly know about how much the requirement is. The online tutors can charge more if there is a huge requirement of the online tutors but the tutors should not charge high amount if there is not much requirement of the online tutors. For example; there is a huge requirement of the tutors who offer a master degree in physics. Hence, they can charge as much as they want. On the other hand, there is not much requirement of the tutors who offer a secondary level of maths as there are already a lot. Hence, those tutors should not charge a high amount of rates for tutoring.

Designation: The designation of the online tutors can also be considered for determining the prices for online tutoring. The students often notice the designation of the online tutors. For example; the online tutors who are teachers in a primary, secondary or higher secondary school, should not charge high. The online tutors, who are lecturers in a college or somewhere else, can charge a higher amount of money. The reason behind is that the students usually prefer lecturers more than the ordinary teachers.

Materials Availability: The online tutors should know about how much of material they have for teaching their students before setting up the price for tutoring. The tutors can charge a bit more if they have a lot of material to provide the students so that they can learn. They online tutors should not charge much if they do not have enough study material regarding the subject. For example; if a tutor has all the related notes, soft copies, videos, different ideas and related unique examples, then the tutor can charge more than that of the other tutors how do not have much material.

Time Flexibility: Time flexibility is the most important thing for online tutoring as it is not face to face. The online tutors should have a flexible schedule as there are a number of students and all the students do not get free at the same time. All the students who desire to learn, prefer different timings to learn and hence the online tutors should have a flexible time to teach them.

Marketing: The marketing of the tutors can be another factor which can be considered by the tutors before determining the prices per hour. The tutors who are more famous can charge more even if they do not have many skills and do not have much material available with them. For example; there is a very famous academy named “Khan Academy” that provides online tutors. This academy can offer as much price as it wants as it is already much famous among people. Even if this Academy has provided an online tutor that does not have much experience and does not have much tutoring skills, still they can charge as much as they want. Also, people will get ready to pay them as this is a highly reputed academy.

Parents’ Perspectives and Requirements: Sometimes the parents of the students have different requirement for their children which should not be neglected by the tutors. For example; some of the parents require such a tutor for their children who teaches not more than 3 or 4 students as there will be much more disturbance if there are more students in the tuition class.parents copy

Also, some of the parents require such a tutor for their child who can teach their child some of the extra subjects which are not there in the syllabus. Thus, all the parents have different requirements of tutors for their children. The tutors who fulfill all these requirements can charge a bit more than the tutors who do not fulfill these requirements of the parents. Thus, it can be said that the perspectives of the parents are also an important factor that should be kept in mind before deciding their hourly rate.

Education level in 21st Century from 19th Century

The education in the 21st century has offered a lot of predictions, and the future imperatives have also been utilized by the education in the 21st century which was obviously not done in the education strategies in the 19th century.

Some of the other points which can bring a good comparison between the education levels of 21st century and 19th century have been listed and explained below:-

  • The education of 21st century is data driven and the education in the 19th century was not data driven.
  • The education of 21st century is personalized and the education in the 19th century was not personalized.
  • The education of 21st century rests on the science of learning while the education of 19th century was not completely rested on the science of learning; instead, it was partially rested on the science topics to learn.
  • The education of 21st century is designed to gear towards 100 percent efficiency, and the students are taught in such a way that they can get 100 percent efficient information and knowledge. On the other hand, the education in the 19th century was not geared towards 100 percent efficiency and the reason could be that the tutors did not have sufficient knowledge about the topics and also they did not have proper strategies of distributing the educational knowledge.
  • The education of 21st century has taken almost all the possible advantages of technology which are beneficial for the students, in various possible ways which actually help to enhance the learning experience. On the other hand, the education in the 19th century could not take the advantages of technology as the technology was not as much developed in the 19th century as it is today.
  • The pace of the educators of 19th Century for preparing the students for the 20th century was a bit slower than the pace of the educators of the 21st century for preparing the students for the coming future.
  • In the 19th century education, it was really very much easy to address the change because the educators of the 19th century had enough time to absorb the change. On the other hand, the educators of the 21st century do not have much time for absorbing the change before they have to represent the change.

markimgWhy E-learning Is The Future of Education?

markimgFind the perfect tutor near you

 

  • In the 19th century education, there was no rush and not even a lot of things to be learnt, and there were also not much things in the systems. The students used to repeat the same thing over and over. On the other hand, in the 21st century, there is a lot of rush of different educational things. Hence, the students do not get much time to repeat one thing as they have to perform various experiments which are totally different from each other.
  • It is hard for the education in the 19th century to be against the education in 21st century’s vision and strategies because it is a type of educational strategy near Utopia.
  • The education in the 21st century has committed a promise of higher completion rates. It has also promised to the students who have the required abilities and the skills for employment. This is pretty much sure that the education in the 19th century did not have much power to make such a promise which can really bring a lot of change and can result into the brightest future.
  • There are now a lot of tutors with different teaching strategies and different methods of teaching the students in the 21st century who were obviously not available in the 19th century. Instead, all the tutors of the 19th century have the same methods and strategies of teaching which were made by maybe a particular senior educator. They did not have their own methodologies of teaching as the recent educators have.
  • Smart Education Concept: Most importantly the concept of smart education has been introduced in the education of 21st century which has become the most popular concept up till today.

Smart copyThere have been a lot many technologies which have been developed in the education as smart education concept. The smart education is all about learning in a smart way with the smart appliances. The concept of smart education has helped a lot of educators and a lot many students to improve their teaching skills and learning skills respectively. The concept of smart education has started in the early 21st century and obviously had not been introduced in the 19th Because of the absence of smart education concept in the 19th-century education, it could not achieve the level which the today’s education has achieved.

5 latest technologies which are beneficial in learning physics

The most important reasons for introducing the technologies in learning the physics are:-

  1. To bring improvements in the students’ physics ability.
  2. To bring improvements in the negative reactions of students towards physics.

A few examples of the classification of technology which are beneficial for learning physics are:-

  1. Presentation/research/reference programs for collecting and displaying the information.
  2. Computer simulations requiring graphics.
  3. Theoretical or experimental modelling.
  4. Computer interfacing equipment for collecting and processing information.
  5. Infrared technology and physics.

Presentation/research/reference programs for collecting and displaying the information

presentation copy

Though computers are being used for a lot many purposes, still the most relevant and the most appropriate use of computers in schools and colleges is for word processing. Some of the programs such as Microsoft word, Microsoft excel and Microsoft power point are widely used for word processing because they are very helpful for making the information easy. Other presentation/research/reference programs which are used for reporting the information are the web page programs such as Microsoft front page. Mainly spreadsheets are widely used in a number of ways in the physics instructions. The spreadsheets are usually used for facilitating the analysis of data via their organisational capabilities of presentations. One of the most common uses of the spreadsheets is to display the data in graphical form.

Computer simulations requiring graphics  computer_simulation copyThe use of ready-made phenomenological and conceptual computer simulations is one of the best technologies available for the students of physics. The simulations software of a computer is used to provide the chances for exploring the models and the concepts that have not been accessible in the Lab. An example of a computer simulation is the Web-based air track simulation which is accessed through the mechanics link. This link is available at given address “http://host.explorelearning.com/ESClassic/interact.htm”. Also, this simulated air track has some limitations like all the other computer simulations. However, the use of computer simulation software is having the potential for various benefits for students to understand physics in a proper way.

Theoretical or experimental modelling

experimental copy   As almost all the physics interactions and concepts a\can be modelled easily with the help of the medical relationships, hence the models of those mathematical relationships which are computer generated, are usually found in almost all the areas of physics. The physics students have been offered “so many ideas related to the fact how a physicist works for determining equations” by the modelling exercises. The most common types of models are the mathematical models which are used in physics. These models can also be static or dynamic visual representations, verbal analogies, concrete physical representations and combinations of each of these. Although there have a lot of models been introduced, a simplification of the phenomenon is the common and the only function of those models.

Computer interfacing equipment for collecting and processing information

MBL device copy Some of the most common interfacing equipment for collecting and processing information are the probes which plug into the graphing computers and the calculators. The students of physics should use Microcomputer-Based Laboratory Devices (MBL’s) for collecting and processing information as the scientists perform the observations for a long time. Usually, probes serving as electrical multi-meters, sound meters, light meters, thermometers, sonic rangers, force scales and timers are included which are commonly used in the physics activities. With the help of these probes, the data can quickly and efficiently gather by the students and can easily be displayed graphically and can also be entered in the spreadsheets. The major advantage of using interfacing equipment is the time saved because the students do not need to repeat the observations.

Infrared technology and physics

infra copyThe core topics of infrared physics can be summarized as the materials and devices, the associated optics, detection, and propagation, of infrared radiation and the generation. This is used in all the fields of medicine, industry, science and most importantly in physics. The infrared techniques usually occur in a number of fields such as material characterization and processing, space research and atmospheric physics. The infrared technology is also one of the best technologies which have been introduced in physics for the students to learn physics easily and in a proper way. This technology has given students a lot of benefits so that they can easily and quickly understand physics. As the infrared technology has been introduced in physics, it has become very easy for the students to learn the related topics in physics as it has given a lot of ways to understand it in a proper way.

  1. Shortcut for organic synthesis using C-H bonds

C-H bond copyA catalyst has been designed by the chemists which provides with a huge shortcut for how an abundant, simple molecule is turned into a much more value-added and complex molecule by the chemists. Another step has been taken by the chemists to use the carbon-hydrogen bonds (C-H) for creating new molecules.

  1. Targeted orphaned domain may lead to drug therapies

ICD copyThe intercellular domain (ICD) has been focused by Jansen’s lab which is diverse. The researches may even result in some new therapies of the drug without the effects which were not desired, by targeting this domain. The intercellular domain was considered as extremely disordered a few years ago. However, the ordered assembly of five ICDs has been shown by this research.

  1. Cancer detection can be improved by new device

cancerdetection copyA new method which has been developed by UBC to isolate the cancer cells which escaped from a tumour could soon pave the way for improved treatment and diagnosis. A simple device is involved in the simple process which squeezes the cells in a blood sample through tiny funnels. However, this research is mainly focusing on microfluidics, the flow of liquids through the channels which are even smaller than a human hair

New Elements added in the Periodic family

A Periodic table which is considered to be the list of all elements with their atomic numbers and atomic weights has a reason to be jubilant. The 7th row of the table is complete. It was incomplete till recently, although the existence of the elements to fill the vacant places were predicted much before. The elements, which have been added to the designated positions in the 7th row of the table, are yet to get their formal names. But those are merely process and we will soon have a periodic table, a complete one, with the formal names of the new discoveries.

periodic-table-2016

At present, the new elements are occupying gracefully 113th, 115th, 117th and 118th positions amongst their counterparts. The positions, that is 113, 115, 117 and 118 are naturally the atomic numbers of the elements, that is the number of protons present in nuclei of the elements or the number of electrons that are circling round the nuclei of the atoms of the elements. Presently these new super-heavy and very unstable elements are known as ununtrium (Uut, atomic number 113), ununpentium (Uup, atomic number 115), ununpentium (Uus, atomic number 117) and ununoctium (Uuo, atomic number 118). The elements being heavier than Uranium 92 (which is the heaviest element to exist naturally) are extremely unstable and cannot exist naturally.

IUPAC (The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry) is the Global body which, undertakes the governance of the nomenclatures as well as measurement in Chemistry, has recognised the scientists of the RIKEN Institute of Wako, Japan, as the discoverer of the element Uut, 113. Whereas, IUPAC has awarded the credit of discovering the element Uut (118) to the teams from US and Russia, working in joint collaboration and belonging to the Joint Institute for Nuclear research in Dubna and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory California in the US. The same team has been credited with the discovery of the other two elements with atomic numbers 115 and 117 but with collaboration of another institute Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
Being very new to the periodic table family, the new elements are yet to be observed to reveal their entire chemical properties. However the following are the properties which have been identified till date:
UNUNTRIUM
Atomic Number: 113
Group Number: 13
Period: 7
Electronic Configuration: [Rn]5f146d107s27p1
UNUNPENTIUM

10 TIPS TO BETTER COMMUNICATE WHILE ONLINE TUTORING

The task of teaching is not easy and when it is online tutoring where the student is far from the tutor there are several difficulties in building online communication. Tutoring is not the mere task of providing assignments to students or giving information about the lessons and courses. Rather it is that task that involves building truth and emotion between each other, healthy classroom environment and strong student –teacher relation requires better, effective and continuous communication.online tutoring

In this digital world, the tutor needs to understand and learn the ways and art of communication and interaction with the student online. The important of effective online communication by a tutor to his student has a great impact on student’s learning. There are some key tips that can be kept in mind in order to build effective online tutoring.

Effective communication through modern technology Use of modern technology and gadgets make communication more effective and better. There are several options for technology and gadgets that may help a lot to build effective communication like e-mails, video conferencing-cards, cell phones, chats, and messages as well as social media tools help a lot. Through this technology, a tutor can also communicate with the student’s parent as to provide them with feedback about their child’s performance and taking necessary and required information about the student.

Clarity in communication – Effective communication is complete only when there is a perfect understanding between both the tutor and student. The process of communication is perfect when both the tutor and student can understand each other thoughts and views properly. A good online tutor always uses simple language that his student can understand, and the mode of communication can transmit it properly so that student can understand the words of his tutor in the way tutor is saying to him. Effective communication also includes efforts at the end of a tutor who can make the boring conversion or information delivery process interesting for the student. Through this student will always love to listen what his tutor is saying to him and will follow his instructions too.

Simple and grammatically correct language – In online tutoring communication, the language of a tutor is very important element because if tutor will use tedious words or grammatically incorrect sentences then the student will not able to understand him that’s why tutor should always use simple and error-free language with his or her students.

Online applications and Arch the way – Apart from the above-said technology there are a number of online applications that serve an effective platform for online tutoring with the student and communicating with a parent. Also there also many recently explored tools with help in effective communication, and one of such tool is Arch the way, it is a simple tool with can lead to better communication. There are many ways in which Arch the may be useful for online tutoring as it connects effectively with the student, through Arch the way tutor can create healthy classroom environment by  interaction in a more effective way by sending messages, notes, charts and sharing multimedia files and documents.

 Safe and simple communication with regular feedbacks – Through online tools and application tutor can send all necessary information and updates to the student more over it is a hassle free way of exchanging thoughts and ideas between tutor and student. Regular feedback of student’s performance is essential at the end of tutor; tutor must always be in connection with student’s parent in order to receive and respond to parent and student as well.

Effective communication with faith and emotions – A tutor is one who building personalize communication with the student through conveying his or her affection and faith to students. In online tutoring, it is difficult to build personalize relation with the student as student and tutor both are far from each other. A tutor can build a strong and healthy relation with the student through his serious concern about student’s performance and his commitment towards student and studies.

Personalize communication – No matter how far the student is from tutor, the tutor should always try to keep personalize touch with student through memorizing their names and addressing by their names only, should listen to goals and ambitions of student and motivate him or her towards it and must celebrate their student’s success by giving them recognition and appreciation for their work.

Building a relation with student and parent as well – A good online tutor will always value building a relation with student and student’s parent as a strong relation between them can help a lot in throughout learning process. First of all tutor need to build a trustworthy relation with parent and need to assure them about their child’s academic career. Tutor must also give ample to time to parent so that they can tell them about their expectations, child behavior, interest, abilities and other things.

Documenting conversions – A good online tutor is very well aware of the importance of documenting all the necessary communication. Documenting communication includes a brief summary of conversion with parents and student with names and date. Some tutor ignores the relevance of such documents, but a good tutor always does so.

Often make time to call – In hectic day to day life it is difficult to spare time for regular calls and contact, but a good tutor always makes sure to be in touch with student and parent through often talk with them. This habit of talking help in building more strengthen the bond between student and tutor. Today there are several options available with technology advancement to keep contact with each other.

Humble and soft-spoken tutor –  The online tutoring is a modern days art that why it take a little time for the student to understand hid tutor but if the tutor is humble towards him or her and speaks gently with students then students will automatically start taking an interest in tutors tutoring. If any tutor who have a rough voice or rude behavior towards students, can never build healthy relation with students, and students will never like to listen to their tutor and this will create a gap between tutor and student communication.
