INTERACTIVE AND ENGAGING

ONLINE TUTORING

NewBridge Online provides interactive and engaging online tutoring for Primary and High School learners.

 

Our online platform has been designed to encourage interactive sessions with Tutors who have a passion for and commitment to delivering constructive online tutoring.

Learners receive individualised attention that they wouldn’t receive in a classroom setting, and can continue to hone their skills throughout holiday periods.

Historically, tutoring entailed matching a Tutor to a learner and conducting in-person teaching at their home. More recently, these services have been made available online through basic digital platforms such as Skype and Zoom. While this is a good stop-gap measure, simply having an extra lesson via Skype or Zoom does not constitute effective online tutoring. Rather, it is the utilisation of interactive online pedagogies that deliver a more relevant and effective tutoring method that will yield the best results.

 

NewBridge Online delivers online tutoring for Primary and High School learners, utilising interactive digital methodologies in an effective and engaging way.   All our Tutors are subject matter specialists, have been carefully screened and trained in teaching effectively with technology through a customised programme, created and developed by Dr Craig Blewett, who holds a PhD in education technology and has developed the Activated Classroom Teaching (ACT) model.
