How are online classes conducted?
The teachers conduct online classes in Skype or in a special Virtual Classroom, where the student and tutor see and hear each other and work together with educational materials, write and draw on a special whiteboard. In its essence the online classes do not differ from the classroom (face-to-face) and in many ways are even more effective as the online classes promote intensive speaking that develops student’s thinking. The online classes can be easily controlled by parents and/or recorded.
What are the fees?
The price of online classes range from 300.00 RUB to 2000.00 RUB depending on
- tutor experience (the greater the experience, the higher the price);
- subject (the greater the demand for a subject, the higher the price). E.g. foreign language classes are more expensive;
- level of difficulty (preparation for an exam is more expensive than addressing knowledge gaps among schoolchildren; preparation for an academic competition is more expensive than the preparation for the exam, etc.)
The average price of a class is available in tutors profiles.
