Live online e-tuition is incredibly flexible allowing you to access tuition from wherever you are, provided you have an internet connection. Sessions are organised and run in a very similar manner to traditional 1-to-1 sessions.  In addition, sessions can also be recorded, allowing students to refer to recordings even after the lesson is over.

The E-tuition service allows face-to-face interaction between tutor and tutee via Skype, whilst learning material is shared via the online interactive whiteboard, Scribblar and screen-sharing facilities.  Both student and tutor can write on the interactive whiteboard, enabling exercises to be completed by the student during the session and marked as though the tutor were sitting next to the student.

To participate you need:

A fast internet connection
A good microphone and speakers
A webcam
A Skype account

Access to Scribblar is provided by Chemucation.
