FAQs About Online Classes


1. How do your online classes work?

In contrast to many other websites, our online classes are not pre-recorded but delivered via live, online tutoring (also known as eLearning or distance learning) using video conferencing solutions. That means students will be able to receive a customized learning experience via real-time instruction. Since the concept of eLearning is new to many people, we are making sure that after you book a class, your instructor gets in touch with you to answer all your questions related to distance learning, required tools and schedule your first online class.

2. Which video conferencing solution can be used for online classes?

At the moment, several video conferencing solutions have been made available in the UAE, such as Zoom, Botim, Google Hangout, and Microsoft Teams. Our online tutoring sessions can be given through any one of these apps, which are free and easy to use. If you have any questions, your instructor will guide you prior to the start of the session to help you make the best of your online learning experience.

3. Are online classes priced the same as regular, in-person classes?

In addition to our regular best price guarantee policy, our online classes are further discounted by up to 70 percent compared to the same in-person class. If you’re interested in a class that you might’ve felt was too expensive before, this is your chance to learn the skill for a much lower price with the added convenience of home learning.

4. Where are your instructors from and are they verified?

Yes, all our instructors for online courses go through a vetting process to ensure that they’re professional and have the knowledge and experience to teach online tutoring classes. Our instructors are based in the UAE, which means you can shift smoothly from online learning to regular classes with the same instructor once the lockdown is lifted. We’re also committed to supporting the local community and want to ensure our instructors are earning an income during this time.

5. How do I know if an instructor is available at my preferred timing?

Distance learning or eLearning has one major advantage: Starting an online class takes only seconds since all you and your instructor need for online learning is a laptop and internet connection. Therefore, most of our online tutoring classes can be fully customized to your availability. Like our regular classes, the available times and dates for our online courses and classes are displayed in the respective schedule on the class page. After you’ve booked the class, the instructor will contact you to set the schedule for your online learning experience as per your convenience.

6. What materials will I need for an online class? Where can I get them?

No matter whether you are interested in an online workshop, webinar, or online course, for each of these classes, we’ve specified which materials are needed and it is stated in the class page under the section “Materials.” We’ve also ensured that the materials you may need for your remote learning are readily available and can be purchased easily. If you’re struggling to find something, your instructor can also guide you on where to buy the materials prior to the start of the class or even arrange to have it delivered to your premise.
