Not exactly. For traditional tutoring services, students usually meet with the tutor in person and spend time working on areas to improve together. In this course, students still get the same information from the tutors, however the student is in control because of the ability to replay video information as many times as required. When students are ready to test themselves, they can receive feedback from quizzes and personalised feedback on up to four writing essays.
Teaching English in classroom settings can be challenging because of the additional teacher responsibilities of classroom management, teaching to a wide range of abilities, lesson preparation and reporting. These issues don’t exist for our online tutors so 100% of the time is focussed on helping students to improve.
The course includes lesson input using video, audio, text and images. The variety of language input is designed to meet the needs of learners with various learning style preferences.
Certainly. In fact, this course is a great way for parents to understand the structure of the NAPLAN test and see how challenging it can be for students. Parents are able to sit with the children as they work through the materials, and see for themselves the areas in which their child is struggling.
Essentially, this course focuses on the skills of reading comprehension, grammar, spelling, punctuation, planning and writing narratives, as well as planning and writing persuasive essays. Within each of these areas there are multiple activities that provide opportunities to practise and improve. See the Learning Outcomes table for detailed information.
