We live in unprecedented times and the Covid-19 outbreak continues to change our lives as it spreads around the world. Children’s education has been hardest hit of all, and for months many education providers both here in Dubai and around the world stopped face-to-face classes to protect their students. With the subsequent massive increase in online tuition, we ask: which is best, online or private tuition?
Advantages of in-person private tuition in Dubai
This is the traditional form of tuition which we’re all familiar with. The tutor and the student meet in a set place and at a set time. Here at Neoversity, our tutors take in-person classes at our learning centre in Al Furjan. Alternatively, classes can be at the student’s residence or at any other location that is convenient. We follow strict Covid-19 prevention protocols to guarantee children’s safety. We adhere to social distancing, wearing masks at all times, and sterilise rooms between classes.
Face-to-face learning is a great way to learn knowledge and skills because it often combines different ways of learning and enables easy demonstration and practice of newly-learned skills. Students can get a rich understanding of the topic at hand, while building up a close and productive relationship with the tutor. For those young learners who have challenges concentrating, an in-person class presents less distractions than receiving tuition from a computer screen.
Advantages of online private tuition in Dubai
Online private tuition is conducted remotely using a computer, without a tutor or other students being physically in a classroom. Children can study from the comfort of their own homes, and don’t have to worry about getting stuck in one of Dubai’s traffic jams and missing class. For those kids with a busy schedule of regular school, after-school activities and sports practice, fitting in private tuition can be tricky. Online classes save valuable time. Children also get to develop ICT skills, which will be so important to their future study and work.
