In the past decade, online tutoring has grown from an alternative to in-person learning to being just as popular. In fact, studies show that there are more children learning online than ever before.
The convenience and affordability of online tutoring make it an attractive option for families who want their children to have additional tuition after school hours with a tutor.
In a survey conducted by Bramble in the summer of 2022, over 2200 students and tutors participated – confirming our ideas about how children are learning today.
In 2021, just under 80% of students found online tutoring to be effective or more effective than in-person. Now, in 2022, that number has grown to 86%.
Online learning is more accessible than ever
Online tutoring is just as accessible as its in-person counterpart. It’s easy to access and can be used anywhere with an internet connection, at any time of day, and on any device, even your phone!
It’s also useful for those who are unable to attend class or meet in person because they have a busy schedule or live in remote areas.
Tutoring online is fun, convenient and affordable
Online tutoring is fun, convenient and affordable. You can find a tutor that is right for you no matter where you live in the world.
Online tutoring has been around for years but it's only recently starting to become popular with parents and students alike. Online tutors are more affordable than in-person tutors because they don't have to pay rent or an hourly rate at an office.
This means that online tutoring costs less than traditional in-person sessions because there are fewer overhead costs involved (no office space). They also save on travel time between appointments.
It's easier to source a tutor online than in-person
It's easier to source a tutor online than an in-person tutor. When you're looking for a tutor, you can find one with just a few clicks. This is especially helpful for students who are seeking tutors that live in remote areas.
It also means you are able to find a tutor who fits your needs. It may be that you cannot locally source a specific tutor, however, online tutoring can offer you access to the best tutors across the country.

Students are more comfortable in their own surroundings
While learning at home is a novel concept, it’s not new. Tutors have been working with students in their homes for years. But unlike traditional tutoring sessions where the tutor visits your home and you work in your living room or kitchen, online tutoring allows the student to work from their tablet or computer.
Students also enjoy the comfort and privacy of their own homes where they feel safe to learn and explore core subjects.
Students can learn at their own pace
The online tutoring option is great for those who need more time to grasp a concept or process than they would in a traditional setting. This is perfect for students who are self-motivated and want to move forward on their own schedule but also works well for students with ADHD who do better when given extra time and space to think through things in their heads.
Gaining the edge over their peers
No one can deny that the internet has transformed the way we communicate, do business and learn. And when it comes to education, online tutoring has become an important tool in helping your child gain an edge over their peers.
Online tutoring is a great way to help your child stay engaged in their learning and get the additional educational input they deserve. It's also a great option for parents who have busy schedules or who are looking for extra help after school hours.
As more and more parents realise that their children can learn just as well at home, we'll see even more people taking advantage of online tutoring. We're excited to be at the forefront of this new way of learning, and we hope you are too!
