In an age when online learning is so common, many parents wonder how our tutors will teach your children. Luna Education offers some top resources that are recommended by our BC Certified teachers and used at school and to give students an optimal online learning experience.
Read on to learn more about Zoom, Quizlet, Kahoot!, and Google Docs – 4 top resources recommended by school teachers near you.
Zoom is an online platform for conducting meetings, 1-on-1 classes, group classes, lectures, and more. At Luna Education, all online classes are administered through Zoom. This way, our online tutors can teach your child by sharing their screen, annotating and explaining concepts through drawings and sketches, using the Whiteboard function for students to type and write their answers, and more.
Our online teachers still recommend Zoom after using it for so long as it provides a seamless learning experience for your child and tutors.
Quizlet is a website where our tutors and your child can create virtual flashcards for studying and quizzes. With help from their online tutor, your child can create their own flashcards or use the flashcards uploaded by other users. Our online Math or English tutors often use Quizlet to encourage students to use flashcards, and to lead interactive and visually-appealing pop quizzes.
Jeremy, one of our BC Certified Teachers, says, “I recommend Quizlet to our tutors often, because it allows students to be involved in the process of creating flashcards. Also, we can assign this for homework, and ask students to quiz themselves on Quizlet for 20 minutes every day!”
Kahoot! is a fun and interactive online game that is played live with your child and their tutor. Students and tutors can either create games by coming up with their own questions and answers, or by using a pre-made game uploaded by other Kahoot! users.
Many schools use this website as an excellent resource for distance learning. Your child can log on either using their mobile phones or their computers to participate in our trivia games. A common way our online Math or English tutors incorporate Kahoot! in classes is to allocate 5 minutes at the end of each class to review concepts through a quick Kahoot! game.
4. Google Docs
Your child can use Google Docs to write, edit, and collaborate with their online Math or English tutor. Whether they are working on an English report, needs feedback on an essay, or wants to complete their Math homework with their tutor, Google Docs is an easy platform for your tutor to guide your child through their homework at the same time.
English tutor Nicole shared her thoughts on using Google Docs: “I use Google Docs daily with my students.”. Because most of my students need to write essays and reports for school, I use it to give live feedback and comments for them to work on. In class, we work together on Google Docs, and my favourite part is that my students will always have a record of my comments and suggestions, as it’s saved on the platform!”
