According to recent studies, there is a widespread realization among students and parents that online tutoring is just as effective – for many even more effective - than in-person tutoring that was more prevalent pre-covid-19.


“My daughter feels more comfortable learning online and she is more motivated to study than she ever was” Says Amina (Mom with Synkers)


Online tutoring is here to stay


Worldwide there are currently more than 1.2 billion children in 186 countries affected by school closures due to the pandemic.


After observing the available data and speaking to the Synkers community (students, parents & tutors), we listed a few reasons that make online learning better than in-person learning.


Students learn faster online


Some research shows that on average, students retain 25-60% more material when learning online compared to only 8-10% in a classroom.


It also takes students 40-60% less time to learn than in a traditional classroom setting because students can learn at their own pace, going back and re-reading, skipping, or accelerating through concepts as they choose.


Students will develop effective skills


The global pandemic has disrupted the education system allowing students to develop innovative skills that will be of major use in the future!


“Synkers wants to provide students with the best tutoring experience that will develop their skills and quality of learning” Says Audrey CEO of Synkers


Online learning will be a catalyst to develop adaptability and critical thinking skills among students which is more important for future success.


Students get more flexibility online


Busy parents and students get to decide when and where to learn which could save a lot of time, especially when they can work within their schedules to schedule the ideal time for tutoring.


The Synkers app makes the process of connecting with a tutor as seamless as possible and accessible from any device.


Online tutoring can be effective, convenient, and can be personalized to any student, regardless of learning needs.


Students will get to be more interactive & innovative


Children today are products of a digital age, and many thrive in a virtual environment. Tutors should create lessons and provide interactive assistance that incorporates such technology seamlessly.


At Synkers our high caliber tutors have found effective ways to keep students engaged during the sessions.


Where traditional tutoring may include worksheets, textbooks, and workbooks, tutoring platforms utilize all the virtual tools available to us on the internet.


Conclusion: Tutoring helps students and online tutoring raises the bar even higher


Tutoring is a vital supplement for all students that want to excel academically. It fills gaps that arise in school and reinforces skills that aren’t as solid as they should be.

Online tutoring is here to stay.


Synkers App will make the process seamless and more effective than ever!
