Learn online with a private teacher | The best of both worlds

The time when we all have to learn the same thing in the same classroom at the same pace is now well behind us. The exponentially growing offer of YouTube lessons and podcast broadcasts allows us to decide for ourselves what and when we learn at what pace. Combine that with the many apps that are available to learn to speak a language or play an instrument and you can keep on learning until you reach the age of 100. The revolution in technological progress offers us many advantages in the field of self-study, but it also has its downsides. The human interaction to mention only one thing.

The necessity of human interaction

Research in the 1960s by Lisa Berkman and Leonard Syme, among others, already showed that human interaction is a primary necessity of life. People with few to mediocre human interaction live shorter than people with normal or above-average human interaction. This does not prove that you need human interaction in order to be able to learn better or more, but it does prove that you have entered a risky area in which these human factors are quickly forgotten.

The advantage of human interaction if you want to learn something

Besides the fact that it is healthy to have as much human interaction as possible because you will live longer, learning under the guidance of a real person also offers other advantages.

Triple benefits of being taught under the guidance of a real person

  • Personal motivation and help to show perseverance
  • Deepening in a specific subject you want to know more about
  • Higher learning pace, the teacher gets the most out of yourself

However, various studies by Steven Stack, for example, show that the effectiveness and general appreciation of online learning are on average slightly higher than with traditional lessons. This means that the ideal teaching method is online with the help of a live teacher. This gives you the best of both worlds.

Studying online under the supervision of a live teacher

The new trend is to study online under the supervision of a live teacher. You still have the advantage of being able to learn a subject of your choice at your own time and at your own pace, but combine it with the advantage of traditional lessons. An additional advantage is that you have your own private teacher and that it usually costs only a fraction of traditional lessons.

Platforms, where online private teachers offer themselves, are growing enormously. The online learning industry is growing more than 10% a year and has grown to an estimated annual turnover of $200 billion. Even though the number of instructors and lessons is still in stark contrast to traditional instructors and lessons, it is now a market that we can no longer ignore.

Human interaction - live video

How does online teaching work under the guidance of a live teacher?

There are several platforms where you can follow online lessons. Udemy is one of them, but CallTheONE also has hundreds of teachers in different fields. You can go through these steps:

Make a selection of private teachers

After you have chosen what you want to learn, you can choose the teacher of your choice. Each teacher has a profile page where you can read his or her expertise and see reviews of previous students.

A good connection between student and teacher can have a positive impact of 200% on learning performance.

Choose what you want to pay for a lesson

Some teachers are certified and others teach because it is their hobby. Do not forget that Michael Jackson didn't have a diploma or certification to sing either. Not every subject needs a certification to teach it. Often non-certified teachers are cheaper and if you want you can always switch to a more experienced teacher later on. On almost all online learning platforms you can choose what you want to pay. This is also the case on CallTheONE.

First an introductory lesson or get started right away

Many teachers offer discounts on the first introductory lesson. You and the teacher can then discover together whether the subject is really what you want to learn. You can also make other appointments and only pay by the minute, for example. (Until now only possible on TheONE). If you pay per minute, you decide for yourself how long the lesson will last so you can keep your budget manageable. A third option is to buy an entire course package right away. Each teacher and each course has a different price. This gives you full control over what the lessons will cost you.

Getting lessons and giving them where and when you want

Because you and the teacher both learn and teach through live video interaction, it doesn't matter where you are. All you need is internet and a Smartphone or computer. You make agreements about when you want to take lessons and you call each other at the agreed times so that the lesson can start.

No unnecessary and expensive teaching material needed

Thanks to the screen share functionality that almost all online learning platforms offer, there is often no need for expensive and unnecessary teaching material. This sometimes saves a lot of money. You can look at the instructor's screen if necessary and, if necessary, view course material digitally.

share your screen

Why is online learning so popular?

More and more instructors are choosing to teach online via live video chat. Sometimes as a part-time job and sometimes even as a full-time job. However, it is not only instructors who make the online instructor industry grow so rapidly. Consumers and hobbyists are also increasingly offering their services. If you are good at something, it is nice to share that knowledge with someone who is interested in it. If you can also earn something with it, that's a nice bonus, of course. Many travelers pay for their trip or holiday destination in this way, because what could be better than sharing your knowledge and skills with others from a tropical island?
