Qualified teachers make the best tutors as they are more experienced in the business of education. For example, exam boards vary greatly in their tasks and the skills they test. The Edexcel GCSE requires students to write answers to French comprehension texts in English, whilst for the Cambridge iGCSE they must write in French; the Pre-U qualification includes a specific grammar paper whereas the AQA A-level has a larger focus on translation. Qualified teachers have greater access to past papers than a regular internet user, and a tutor who is not a qualified teacher may well struggle to find the right resources for your child. Similarly, if you are looking for a tutor to help your child access a school with exam entry requirements, a qualified teacher will be likely to have been involved in setting up these processes before, so will have specialist knowledge in what the schools are looking for.
Online tutoring can save time and money and keep students engaged using technology in exciting new ways. Tutors use online platforms such as Kahoot, where students take online quizzes created by the tutor; Peardeck, which features interactive Powerpoints so students can engage with them; and Quizlet, where students can practise vocabulary through motivating games. Worksheets can be sent via Google Docs for the student to edit in real time, so tutors can watch as they write and ensure they are not using Google translate! However, you may prefer to choose an at-home tutor to reduce your child’s screen time or if you believe having the tutor next to your child as they learn will help their concentration. The tutor may charge more to factor in their travel time, but behaviour can be more effectively managed in person.
