Do you think Online Live Tuition is the Next Big Thing?

Indian tuition industry is still an unorganized sector and the online tuitions have been trying to transform it into an organized sector. Online live tuitions are no more unconventional method of learning. Live online tuitions are likely to emerge as India’s largest mode of tuitions soon in urban India. At present, the industry has very limited market. As the perception of both the parents and students about online live tuitions have been shifting towards the positive end, they are gaining popularity.

Of late, online institutes started offering live classes in the place of  traditional recorded classes. Some of the below reasons too contribute to the popularity of online live tuitions:

Interactive classes: During online live tuition, interaction takes place between a teacher and students. It allows a teacher to know the mood of the student by observing the facial expressions and can change the teaching methodology accordingly. Students can interact with an online tutor as they interact with their teacher in off-line class. In fact, they can more easily ask their doubts than in an offline session.

Recording & Replay Facility: You can record all live tuition sessions and can replay them as many times as you require. You cannot enjoy such facility under offline mode of tutoring. If the students miss or does not follow a class thoroughly, they can attend the recorded class later. Some of the institutes post the recorded version of a particular class within a few hours after the completion of the class. Most of the institutes do not charge any additional fees for it.

State of Art Technologies: Live tuitions make different state of art technologies such as whiteboard, chat, player and recorder of voice and video part of teaching. It makes teaching more interesting for the students. Present day multimedia tools make online live tuitions no more different from traditional offline and face-to-face classes.

Online Study Group: Students can form an online study group on tuition portal with a group of like-minded students appearing for similar examination and can learn from one another. They can exchange their views and notes. These activities keep students engaged and involved in the learning process.

Chat Box Option: While attending online live classes,students can post questions easily in the chat box as they do not feel any kind of shyness or rigidity or teacher’s fear. It is easier than asking the teacher a doubt face-to-face in a huge crowd of students in an offline live class.    

Immediate Availability of Tutors: If students need immediate help for their queries, homework and exam preparation, you can immediately get an online live tutor in a few seconds. You can hire his or her services for a few hours too. Moreover, you can get online tutors for a wide variety of subjects.

Saves travel time: To attend live tutorials especially IIT-JEE oriented tutorials, children need to travel hours together to far places. If they switch over to online coaching, they can attend classes at their residence, enjoying home comforts.

Reduction in investment: Online tutoring costs the institutes relatively less when compared to offline classes. They can save their investment  as they do not have to run a brick-and-mortar institute.

Conclusion: Online tuition has been digitizing the learning/tuition process and making its contribution towards future digital society. It has already emerged as the largest mode of tutoring in advanced countries and is set to repeat it in the developing countries too. It is undoubtedly the next big thing in educational sector.

Importance of IIT Foundation Courses

Importanve of IIT Foundation Courses

If you are an IIT aspirant studying Class 6th to Class 10th, you have two options: one is to prepare on your own and another option is to join some IIT-Foundation coaching institute. Joining the foundation classes from the middle  school days itself is a better option for the students.

The following are some of the advantages that the students can get by joining the IIT Foundation course:

  • Enhancement of Thought Process: The coaching stretches your mind and expands the boundaries of your thought process. It enhances your problem solving skills and conceptual knowledge. While attending IIT training classes in future, you do not feel any stress and strain to understand various topics which are covered in-depth in IIT training as your mind is tuned enough to face it.
  • Revision of Fundamentals: If you directly join IIT-JEE coaching in your Plus+2, you may not find time to revise fundamentals of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry as you will be busy with your Plus+2 preparation. In the foundation coaching classes, you can revise all the fundamental concepts of above subjects.
  • Added advantage & competitive edge: IIT Foundation courses give added advantage and competitive edge. You can understand various topics and subtopics in depth before joining Intermediate.
  • Scope for self-examination: If start attending the foundation classes, you may get more time for self-examination and self introspection. You can recognize your opportunity areas and weak areas. You can focus on the areas where you are lagging behind.
  • Fills Gap Between Academic Curriculum & Exam Pattern: The school curriculum focuses on ‘concepts’ rather than their applications. But, most of the questions asked in IIT-JEE are application based questions and they are usually the combination of two or more concepts. Hence, the superficial knowledge of the concepts may not be sufficient to crack the IIT-JEE. The IIT-JEE foundation fills the gap between academic curriculum and the pattern of IIT-JEE examination.
  • Acts As Foundation for Other Competitive Examinations: The foundation course helps students to crack not only IIT, but also other competitive examinations such as SAT, KVPY, NSO (National Science Olympiad), IMO (International Mathematics Olympiad), MTSE (Maharashtra Talent Search Examination), NTSE (National Talent Search Examination), and NSTSE (National Level Science Talent Search Examination).

A few years ago,  the IITs have reduced the number of attempts for IIT-JEE to two. Now, you have only two chances – first chance after your Class XII board exams while the second one is immediately next year. This has made IIT-JEE further competitive. It has further intensified the need for joining the IIT-JEE foundation course from middle school.

For any queries regarding joining our course, you can contact our Help Support Desk.

How to Study for CBSE Class 10 Boards New Pattern?

How to Study for CBSE Class 10 Boards New Pattern? .001

The CBSE board issued CBSE New Assessment Scheme for Class 10 board examination for 2017-18 session. From Academic Year 2017-18 onwards, the board conducts the examination as per new (remodeled) assessment structure.

CBSE replaced  CCE and term system with single annual exam in new scheme of examination. CBSE will conduct the test for 80 marks and schools conduct internal assessments for remaining 20 marks, which are divided among different activities. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) issued detailed guidelines regarding it. In all CBSE affiliated schools too, same rules are applicable from Class VI to Class X.

The schools will conduct 3 periodic tests in an academic year. While submitting the final, the school submits the the average of the best two scores.

The schools can prepare their own exam schedules. However, the schools have to conduct three tests namely pre-mid test, mid-term test and post mid-term test with cumulatively covered syllabus. It means the syllabus increases gradually for every succeeding test. It increases the confidence of the students to appear for the board examination which covers whole syllabus.

Notebook Submission: Internal assessment activities include notebook submission too. This activity contains 5 marks. Its main objective is to examine the seriousness of the students to prepare the notes and complete assignments.

While assigning marks for notebook preparation of the student, the teachers are supposed to take several factors into consideration as follows:

  • regularity
  • punctuality
  • neatness
  • notebook upkeep

Subject Enrichment Activities (5 marks): These activities include subject specific application activities. They contain 5 marks. Its main objective is to enrich the knowledge and understanding of the student. Teachers are supposed to record these activities internally.

The activities conducted for different subjects vary based on the subject as mentioned below:

  • Languages: The main objective of language activities is to equip the learner to develop effective reading, writing, listening, understanding, replying, speaking, and oratory skills of the students.
  • Mathematics: Teachers can assign their students any of the listed mathematical projects as given in the NCERT books.
  • Science: Teachers can assign their students any of the listed practical/laboratory activities, experiments and works as prescribed in the CBSE curriculum.
  • Social Science: As a part of social science activities, students may be asked to work on project works and map related works, as prescribed in the CBSE curriculum.

Co- Scholastic Activities: Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has directed its affiliated schools in its new assessment scheme to promote co-curricular and extracurricular activities for the overall development of the students. Teachers grade the students on these activities on a scale containing 5 points from A to E.

Discipline: It includes various factors such as good behaviour, ethical values, attendance, harmony with fellow students, and sincerity. The main objective of including it in student activities is to encourage the students to build good character and shape their career. Class teacher has to grade the students on a scale containing 5 points from A to E.

Documentation: After declaring the results, the CBSE schools have to store the records of the internal assessment activities of the students for a period of three months  for verification which the board may conduct at its discretion. However, the teachers have to maintain them for more than 3 months if any of them face any grievances or RTI queries.

Weightage of Practical Examination in Different Subjects

Subject Marks For Practicals
FIT/ICT 60 marks
e-publishing & e-office (under Commerce) 70 marks
Home Science 25 marks

While providing their child with tuition, parents take into account various factors such as distance, reputation of the tutorial, testimonials /feedback from former students and fee.

We would like to share some tips to choose right tuition below:

  • Demo Class: Taking a demo or trial class is the best way to assess the compatibility of teacher with the student. So request for a trial class before you actually join.
  • Experience in teaching: Prefer those with prior experience in teaching as an experienced teacher understands student psychology and know how to explain concepts in different ways to different students.
  • Educational qualifications  in concerned subject: Although, the academic qualification cannot certify a teacher’s teaching prowess, but in order to make a decision, you may look at the teacher’s qualification.
  • Feedback From Former Students: Look at reviews and  feedback from former students going through various online reviews on sites like mouthshut.com is also a good idea.
  • Individual Attention: Tuitions whether online or offline should be able to give individual attention to every student. Ensure that the tutorial is not over crowded with a large number of students. In which case, it becomes difficult for tutors to  pay individual attention to every student.
  • Location:. Nearby tuitions may not always be the best fit for you. In such case, students have to spend a good amount of time traveling to and from the tuition center.

According to an estimate, a child ends up spending 80 study days (study day=3 hrs) traveling to and from the tuition center. In this age of Internet, this problem can be resolved by attending online tuitions from the safety and comfort of home.

Which mode of tuition is the best for the child? It depends on your requirement. Let us discuss about some of the requirements below.

    • When you lack good tutorials in your surroundings? If you do not find good tutors in your surroundings and you do not want your child to travel a long distance, you can think of either online tuition or home tuition. Here, students can enjoy home comforts and can spend their saved travel time on other activities/self study.
    • Specific Timing requirements: Some students may prefer to take tuition during late nights or early morning hours according to their availability and schedule of other activities as they have specific goals. As tutorials do not usually conduct classes during such odd hours, home tutoring or online tuitions are the best option for such students. In an online tuition, students can take tuitions at their convenient timings and at any place.
    • Different learners: If your child is a different learner and takes more time to learn, you can join an online course as it offers additional features such as recording the lecture and playing it multiple times. With its  attractive multimedia features, online tuition may create an interest among the students seeking new mode of learning as they may be bored with repetitive, mundane and traditional off-line classes conducted every day at their schools for hours together.
    • To get the best teachers: If you want your child to get the best teachers from across the world, online tuition is the best option.
    • Timely tests and instant results: If your child seeks timely tests and instant results after learning a lesson or concept, it is preferable to go for online tuitions as they are supported with advanced learning platforms where students can take online tests and can get their in-depth performance reports.

Hence, choose the mode of tuition according to your requirements. Anyhow, we wish your child to be in the list of top-10 students of the class.

Hence, students can prepare for the board exams from January with full dedication.

Some of the tutorials are even helping the students in their preparation for the board exam by conducting a few special classes for clarifying the doubts of their students in various topics and subtopics of the board syllabus, on the request of  their students. It is another added advantage for the students preparing for the board exam.
