    4. The teacher will be using the white board similar to an actual classroom and will be providing .pdf version of the notes, worksheets through the Skype interface.

It is best that you let the teacher know in advance what lesson you want to learn or have doubts in. This way the teacher’s time and your time will be spent effectively.

(4) Are Skype lessons effective?

Online tuition is effective in a couple of ways.

      1. It saves time by not having to commute to the tuition class
      2. It saves energy , you will not feel tired because you don’t have to travel

(5) What are the drawbacks of Skype lessons?

We understand that the best way have student-teacher interaction is in a one-to-one classroom setting. The main drawbacks in a Skype call is the teacher not being able to see what the student is writing down. For questions that require method to be shown or when writing essay type answers teacher needs to have a look at what the student has written down. To work around this problem we suggest the student keeps a mobile camera which can upload the images of their work through the Skype window. This way our teachers we will be able to help to check student’s answers.
