But the question always creeps in: are online tutors just as good as tutors near me? 

You may be surprised by the answer.


Online tutors are just as good as tutors near me. Now, it is obviously a different method of delivery, however, the fundamentals are the same. You will also have access to a wider list of tutors and be able to choose from some of the best tutors in the country.

This is a perfect example on how online tutors are better than local tutors, but not all.

3. Social Distancing

COVID-19 has shaken the world and changed everyday life. We have all become too aware of how close we stand to people out with our household and have subconsciously integrated social distancing into our lifestyles.

This means that when it comes to a tutor visiting your house, it is likely the majority are a bit apprehensive.

Even though we like to relax and give people the benefit of the doubt, we still can’t allow ourselves to be careless, so face to face tutoring isn’t a favourable option.

This has paved the way for online tutoring since all communication and lessons are handled through the screens of our computers.

With Tutorspot, booking online lessons has never been easier.
