Benefits of Virtual Live Tuition Classes
Private tuition classes have always been for the privileged and the wealthy with extra disposable income at their fingertips. But now the less affluent parents with average to low income can also afford private tuition thanks to the introduction of online virtual tuition classes.
Nearly one in four young people in the UK has received private or home tuition at some point, according to recent Ipsos MORI research.
Online virtual tuition offers many benefits that are not available even where you have one to one face to face tuition with a private teacher. Students can be set online assignments, homework and quizzes. They can access online resource libraries and facilities. Parents and teachers can view online the student's progress and their attendance. Furthermore, students can record and playback tuition sessions allowing them to learn at their own pace.
BCPD Trust has launched new Virtual classes in June 2017 (May Pilot) for KS2, KS3 and GCSE students covering English, Matchs and Science subjects. We have been providing tuition classes in Luton for many years.
You can book your classes now for May (Pilot), June and July 2017. We can only take a limited number of children each session hence please book in advance to secure a place.
