Rural Students Benefit from Online Tutoring

There are many students who live in rural communities like Chestermere, Cochrane, Bragg Creek, Priddis, Millarville, and other rural communities surrounding Calgary, AB. These students often take their schooling through Alberta Distance Learning (ADL) which is a method of learning without physically being in a classroom. Students submit modules which are then graded by ADL. Programs like ADL allow students that reside in rural communities to complete their schooling from home, without having to commute to their nearest school. With the many benefits of Alberta Distance Learning comes a disadvantage of not having any personal support or one on one instruction. Students have been looking for a solution and are finding that online tutoring is the answer.

Online tutoring is a great way for rural students who are enrolled in correspondence courses to get that one on one, personal support from a qualified tutor. Students are able to ask their questions and get real time answers. Without having to commute, online tutoring is very flexible for scheduling and getting extra help has never been easier.

Alberta Distance Learning courses consist of different modules that the student completes at their own pace, with a deadline at the end of the semester. Without having due dates for each module, some students end up procrastinating and leaving it all to the last minute. Having an online tutor helps students to create a timeline for their completion of each module. Each student is different and online tutoring ensures that each and every student get’s the help and support that they need.
