Law Tutoring on Skype

As a busy law student, finding time for tutoring is both important and difficult. One way to get the help you need without overextending yourself time-wise is to choose a Advanced Law Tutor London that offers Skype tutoring sessions. Doing so allows you and the law tutor to each “attend” the law tutoring session from your own environment without having to travel. The time savings alone make Skype tutoring a compelling choice, but there are a few other benefits you may appreciate. Here’s a quick look at what it’s like.

Video or Voice Tutoring

Want to be able to see your tutor as if you were in a face-to-face tutoring session? Skype allows for video chats. Even if your computer does not have a webcam, if your law tutor’s does, you can see your law tutor. Using video Skype chats allows for a more personal interaction. If you’d prefer a more phone-like interaction, Skype’s voice chat feature allows you to speak to each other much like a traditional telephone call. If your law tutor is located in London and you reside in another country, making Skype-to-Skype voice or video calls is a free way to get expert help. Read here the  benefits of using an online tutor.

Instant Messaging

You may not need to be constantly connected to your law tutor for the entire session. For example, if the tutor wants you to complete a short assignment, it’s not necessary for the two of you to keep talking on Skype. You may want to exit the voice chat while you work on the assignment and then use Skype’s instant messaging tool to ask questions as needed. From there, your tutor may answer via text or initiate another voice chat.

File Sharing

Just as Advanced Law Tutors of London may have materials to share with you in a face-to-face meeting (and vice -versa), the same is true of Skype tutoring. Fortunately, sharing files over Skype is a simple matter. Whether you’re in London or overseas, London law tutoring over Skype is a convenient way to receive law tuition.
