Working from Home? Here’s How Online Tutoring can Boost your Productivity

By Michael H

We don’t need to tell you that Coronavirus has had a massive impact on how people are working.

Apart from key workers, the majority of us have now been forced to work from home.

Combine that with schools closing and you have all the makings of a very chaotic household.

Millions of parents across the UK are now struggling to juggle looking after their children, keeping the house clean, cooking dinner — oh, and working a full-time job.

Scenes like this infamous BBC interview, that was hilariously interrupted by children, are starting to play out across the country.

But there is one way that parents can boost their productivity and free up some time to actually get some work done.

And no, it doesn’t involve sticking them in front of Frozen 2 for the 50th time.

Why Now is the Perfect Time for Online Tutoring

Online tutoring has been growing in popularity over the past couple of years. Since 2018, the number of private tuition lessons taking place online has grown by 417%. But with the recent Coronavirus developments, it looks set to become truly mainstream.

There are a number of reasons why now is the perfect time for online tutoring.

Firstly, with uncertainty around when schools will open again, and how exams will be taking place, it’s important to ensure your child keeps on learning. This will help them continue their momentum, and could even give them a head start when things return to normal.


Not only that, but online tutoring provides 1-to-1 support for your child, meaning they can focus on the areas they need the most help with. That’s why children of all ages can benefit from online tutoring.

But there’s one other amazing reason why you should consider investing in online tutoring… because it frees up time for you to get some work done.

Online tutoring sessions can last an hour or two. That’s a lot of time for a job-juggling parent to squeeze in some productive work time.

Add to that the fact that most parents are likely to struggle with teaching their children to the required standards. Online tutors are experienced and can deliver lessons that follow the curriculum, engage your child, and have a real impact.


So not only are you helping to develop your child’s learning, but you’re also giving yourself the time you need to get some work done, finish off some chores, or even take a well-earned break.

You can concentrate on your work, safe in the knowledge that your child’s tutor is keeping them entertained.
