This method of learning is very engaging for lots of different styles of learning (we have learners of all ages from 7 to 50 years old!). The learner is not bound by geography, so you can save on travel expenses and don’t have the hassle of strangers coming into your home. Many students find the screen barrier between them and tutor confidence boosting as it encourages them to put forward their questions in an unintimidating environment.
