Tutoring in the Pandemic – The Benefits of Online Learning

By Colin Bonini, Study Wizards Tutor

In mid-March, when Santa Clara County first mandated for residents to shelter in place over Coronavirus concerns, I was worried my tutoring sessions with Lydia—a sixth grader—and Sean—a sophomore—would come to an end. Fortunately, both of their parents were open to trying online tutoring, and the results were better than I could’ve expected.

Using Zoom’s screen share feature and Google Classroom, I was able to be more involved in Lydia’s schoolwork than ever before. Not only could I continue to help her with weekly assignments, but seeing her online schedule made it easy for us to work together to prioritize tasks and assignments. We also created a Google Drive folder with all of her tutoring materials, making it easy for us to access worksheets, vocab lists, and reading quizzes at the same time. Sean and I were similarly able to work over Google Drive to create a study guide for the AP Language and Composition exam, share articles online, and hold practice tests.

Both Sean and Lydia were already so screen-savvy that holding their attention proved no problem at all, and at times I even thought they were more comfortable and engaged than when we met in-person. Given my experience, I would say online tutoring offered some awesome benefits, and I’d certainly tell parents to consider giving it a shot. Kids are already so accustomed to learning on screens that an online tutor isn’t as big a shift as we might think! And the resources available online offer tutors and students extra opportunities to share and learn together.
