At Sponge ME, our online Maths tuition and English tuition classes are known as remote learning classes. Whether one-to-one or small group, remote learning classes are available for secondary school students who may wish to save travelling time and cost, and learn remotely from the comfort and safety of their own homes.
Remote learning, what Sponge ME offers, is the best alternative to traditional classroom learning as it is by far the most interactive. Besides being separated by physical distance, everything else remains the same – students can ask questions, and the tutor can respond instantly and even monitor if they are paying attention. In fact, all learning aids and tools used during a traditional classroom lesson can still be effectively employed during a remote learning lesson. The tutor can give a multi-media presentation and even use a virtual whiteboard to “chalk and talk” by simply using the screen share feature.
Sponge ME uses Zoom for all our remote learning sessions. Prior to launching our online tuition service, we had tested out quite a few other popular video conferencing platforms such as Skype, Google Meet and Cisco Webex. At the end, we found Zoom to be the most reliable and user friendly of the lot. Zoom is a well-established, US-listed company with a local support team here in Singapore. In our opinion, the interface and features of Zoom are the best suited for education, making tutor-student interaction a breeze!
