WHAT IS REQUIRED?
CATALOGUE YOUR RESOURCES
You needn't rush out to buy a new device. If you have a PC/MAC machine or a phone, you are already set. What really matters for quality learning with your online tutor, is at least a connection such as a mobile phone signal or Wi-Fi (Broadband or Fibre-optic which would be even better!) to ensure against screen freezes and delays in transmission. Wireless is acceptable too, but here we caution you of low speed or weak signals that might interrupt session flow, especially if your computer is not close to your router.
All you need is:
Choose the course and topic
Choose your preferred date and time with 2 days’ notice in advance
Provide your contact details
Appropriate Software or App
You are ready to connect
Here are two accessories you might want to invest in:
A quality web cam:
Most laptop machines and mobile phones come with a camera built-in.
Most laptops and mobile phones include both microphone and speakers, but they tend to be of inferior quality.
There are lots of applications floating around dedicated to online tutoring.
Fortunately, you don't need to buy or subscribe to any particular site in order to partake in online tutoring.
Generally, YOU CHOOSE I TEACH will suggest preferred software to install.
Skype is the most commonly used for online instruction, because among other features, it offers a screen share function that permits your tutor to see what you are doing while you’re doing it.
In case you don’t already have it, Skype is also available to download for free

Zoom is another app that incorporate screen sharing. Its added benefit is that a recorder is built-in, so that you can save your sessions in MP4 format to play between sessions as a refresher. You do not have to purchase Zoom.
In case you don't already have it, ZOOM is also available to download for free
