Frequently Asked Questions
How does the SchoolPage service work?
SchoolPage e-Tutoring is the best way of receiving focused academic support in a wide selection of subjects at school level. Expert e-Tutors from SchoolPage engage live with student's one-on- one to provide customized tutoring supplementing classroom education in the subjects where a student wants to excel.
What is the duration of each session?
We have structured our lesson plan for each student-teacher interaction to be no longer than 45 minutes, which has been shown to be the threshold beyond which a student’s ability to learn deteriorates significantly. Our lesson plans are structured on the latest and best educational research.
How do you tutor online?
SchoolPage uses an advanced virtual classroom system that provides an experience in which our e-Tutors can focus entirely on supporting their student's. It has two-way video/audio and chat capability, and provides multiple innovative ways of creating engagement and efficient learning.
The digital whiteboard is capable of drawing, typing, importing images and files, plus the delivery of presentations, animation, and videos too.
How do the SchoolPage packages work?
SchoolPage packages have different number of tutoring sessions available over a specified amount of time to match the varying needs of different children. They are packaged conveniently for students to make best use of the unique SchoolPage e-Tutoring System STS. Our most popular products are the Gold and the Platinum packages for sustained tutoring.
A student may fast track the purchased sessions based on his or her customized learning plan or spread them evenly across the
valid time period.
Do you provide study material or notes?
SchoolPage provides highly interactive one-on- one e-Tutoring to School student's. We use books that the student follows at school only as a point of reference while developing the learning plan, but individual e-Tutors make use of notes and SchoolPage study materials as best fits the student's needs.
Will I have access to the recorded sessions?
All material discussed in class is made available to the student along with all recorded sessions, which are also available to the Parents for review at their own convenience.
Can e-Tutoring possibly be as good as home tutoring?
e-Tutoring is virtual home tutoring using the internet. The only difference between the two is that your e-tutor is available at any time convenient to your child, with added benefit of safety of learning from the comfort of your own home. It also saves the child from the risk of commuting avoiding long hours and distance for coaching classes. e-Tutoring advocates the prophecy of learning anytime, at any place.
Is e-Tutoring good value for money?
As e-Tutoring is based on diagnostics, rather than just replicating classroom teaching, every session adds value to the student, because it is specific to that student’s needs and reinforces the information provided within a classroom.
Group classes may be cheaper per session, but personalized one-to-one tuition was asserted by the renowned educator Benjamin Bloom (as long ago as the 1980s!) to be the most effective way to secure higher grades and better comprehension.
These are the benefits which are not available in conventional mode of teaching.
