Although there are many negatives of distance learning, there are some positive effects to note as well. Although the rapid shift to distance learning was frustrating for many teachers at first, 87% of teachers reported in an EdWeek Research study that their ability to use educational technology has improved and they plan to use their newfound skills even when school reopens. Teachers have been pushed to innovate and create online resources such as youtube videos, cloze notes, online assignments, and other materials to teach students with and without disabilities outside of school. Although teacher’s opinions about technology are improving they are not quite as positive as administrators’ outlook. On another positive note though many students were given more access to technology and computers than before the pandemic. Greater access to 1 to 1 computing will make high quality teaching easier. Additionally, teachers have had to deal with a wide range of tech issues and as a result have become a lot more competent at troubleshooting tech problems. This skill will help them when they return to in person teaching as well. No one would argue though that teachers do need professional development and training on how to incorporate computers into instruction, but the pandemic may speed up the incorporation of technology into instruction for students across the board rather just in wealthier districts. We would love to hear your views on the impact of technology on your child or teen’s education within the last few months.

Let’s work through the following concepts to build a strong basic understanding of important chemistry concepts to aid you this upcoming year! Class taught by extremely popular tutor and Chemistry teacher, Vanessa. Vanessa was the most requested tutor last year and we were so sad to loose her when she moved to Washington state. Now through zoom, she has rejoined our staff and we are so happy to have her back!

Private tutors not only help students academically, they also serve as a consistent mentor who can support students to stay focused and on task. Does your child have trouble sitting down, being attentive, and getting work done? There is only so much zoom a child/teen can handle. It is not a replacement for human interaction. Tutoring can also help provide some structure to a student’s school day. Private tutors can teach important study skills such as keeping a homework planner or online calendar. They can help with binder or google drive organization and turning in assignments. They can also help with goal setting and time management. These are important skills not only for school but for life.
Additionally, tutors can also help to motivate and energize students. If they build the right connection they can make learning fun and even make the child look forward to their tutoring sessions. Finally, tutors can reach out to children’s teachers and work as a team. Many parents are trying to work full time jobs while also being the homeschool teacher, nurse, and counselor. Private tutoring can ease the burden and allow for the family to have more fun learning time together that can include taking virtual field trips, reading, or going on a nature walk.
Many parents often think of tutoring only for students who are struggling. Private tutoring can help students who need extra support in remediation and academic core content, but it can also help students who need more challenging work. Do you find your child is done with all their homework by 1pm and playing video games the rest of the day? Depending on the school and your child’s pace of learning, many students can benefit from supplemental instruction that goes beyond the grade level curriculum. This enrichment could be in the form of creative passion projects, science labs, computer science coding classes, higher level math problem solving, essay or screenwriting classes, or even financial literacy content. For students who are struggling, tutors can revisit and reteach content, provide additional practice review problems, help students study for tests, and guide them through school packets.
For parents that do have reservations about in person tutoring, online tutoring through zoom offers a great alternative where the student and tutor can see each other through a screen while simultaneously using screen sharing and annotating tools to make the sessions very interactive. Some students even enjoy this more and it is definitely the safest method for now.
