Face-to-face or online tuition?

The one question often asked is whether online tuition is as effective as face-to-face tuition. The answer is ‘yes’ – and, in fact, many students actually prefer it.

Some of our students live just down the road, and some are on the other side of the world, so location really is no obstacle. Our online courses can provide students with a full academic course wherever they are in the world. We call this learning without boundaries.

The Tutorial Method

The Tutorial Method of learning comprises the principle of treating you as an individual and cultivating your confidence, critical thinking, ability to work with others, effective oral and written communication and independent learning skills.

Learning is not only about memorising, practising, and examinations. It is also about the ability to reason, debate, and think independently – all attributes that need to be developed for future success at university and in the workplace.

The tutorial method consolidates an understanding of concepts and development of knowledge through presentation and challenging discussion in tutorials. You will explore and understand your strengths and weaknesses.  You will learn how to work effectively in teams; to think critically; to be creative and adaptable; to present persuasively and to make effective personal, academic and career choices.

The Tutors

All our Tutors are trained in online teaching techniques, and we provide both them and our students with all the equipment and software required to maximise the online learning experience. In addition, our staff is attuned to the students’ needs outside their tutorials and are experts in providing remote academic support and counselling.

Through our online solution, students can have access to a pool of almost two hundred world-class tutors, most of them based in Oxford, whose combined expertise and teaching experience span almost every subject from the main International Exam Boards (IB, Cambridge, Pearson Edexcel, etc.).
