We ensure that distance is no barrier to learning
Find expert London tutors to support your progress, wherever you are. Distance is no barrier to learning, with JK Educate’s one-to-one online tutoring provision. This service forms a key part of our flexible approach to tutoring provision and educational support, as it means we can offer it to everyone regardless of geography. JK Educate help children from all over the world and across the UK, across all age ranges, including 11+ preparation, GCSEs, A Levels and undergraduate studies.
How does online tutoring work?
Our online tutoring programme provides a shared screen, allowing tutors and students to upload documents, write together, see each other and keep a copy of documents. The programme also records the lesson for students to save and refer to afterwards, when they aren’t interacting with their tutor online.
This online teaching software facilitates a variety of long-distance one-to-one tutoring online. We have students who are long-term students for our online tutors, often preparing for the entrance exams for elite British boarding or day schools, or generally keeping up to pace with British schools whilst living temporarily as expats overseas.
GCSE and A Level Tutoring
In addition, our online tutors are increasingly in demand for ad hoc tutoring – this is sometimes to trouble shoot specific areas of the curriculum in a GCSE or A Level subject or to prepare for end of year exams or mocks. The ideal tutor for an individual student in a specific subject may not live close enough to each other for tutoring in person, but they can still work together well using the interactive online classroom. This tutoring online is valuable to overseas students but also those who live in the UK but outside London – or even just the opposite side of London from the perfect tutor for their needs!
With challenging tutorial sessions and guided additional reading or practice, students can be helped to truly excel in their exams. Our tutors have a wide range of expertise; let us know the subjects you require assistance with and we’ll find the right tutor for you, as each student and tutor are always carefully matched. You will experience supported learning that is tailored to your individual needs, focussing on areas of weakness or particular interest to deepen your knowledge and practice the skills you need to get the grades you need.
Online tutoring is also invaluable to keep up the learning momentum through online lessons during overseas holidays, or simply when school holidays become too hectic to schedule a face-to-face session. 11+ students facing entrance exams after the long summer break often benefit enormously from online tutoring while they are away with their families during the holiday, as it keeps them on track to face these exams.
Current overseas clients benefiting from tutoring online reside in many locations, including Singapore, India, Dubai, China, Hong Kong, Canada, New York and Los Angeles. A popular use of our online tutoring includes those who require support, advice and specialist tutoring to apply successfully to the British senior school of their choice. This could be at 11+, 13+ or sixth form entry level. In each case, you will benefit from the combining our expert knowledge of the schools and their requirements with carefully matched tutors available to you online whenever it suits you.
Testimonials – JK’s online tutors
“Habs, City and Highgate! Which one to choose for Sophie??? I guess that’s good problems! Thank you for the 11+ online tutoring… she’s looking forward to returning to England and starting her secondary education in one of these schools in September! We couldn’t have done this without you!”
Joanne Dillis, New York
“When my work took the family to New York at the most important time for working towards exams, we weren’t sure how we could continue to help prepare our son for the 11+.
Modern technology was the key. Both tutors were able to continue working with him from August all the way through to February by working out times to do Skype sessions despite the time difference.
Not only were they patient and accommodating, but the system worked and he was able to get a place at Latymer Upper School, which was our first choice.
Both teachers were diligent and professional, and I would recommend them extremely highly. A special mention must go to his Maths tutor, as he had much further to go in his Maths than in his English. He took him back to basics, patiently built him back up and made sure he was equipped with the knowledge he would need to get the right grade.
Thanks to you all for your time and effort.”
