Firstly, who are tutors? Tutor is a hybrid profession combined from psychologist and classical teacher. Tutors support students to develop their abilities and master their skills, to find out personal interests and evaluate strong sides. Based on personal information, tutors create a detailed educational plan of studies and personal development for each of their students and control them through the whole educational process. Technology works like that: experienced and prominent professors teach their numerous students through the internet while in the regional classes tutors control, support students with practical tasks, and motivate them.
As it is known, tutoring itself is a quiet ancient profession. According to Wikipedia, it was originated in ancient Greece. So, why it became a rapidly developing trend in modern society?
Firstly, dual-teaching system or two teacher model in other words (which represents tutoring) can help community to overcome the distance gap. Experienced teachers and lecturers usually live in huge or middle-sized cities, which makes competition between students unfair as the quality of studies in small cities or villages is poorer. With the help of dual-teaching system, all students have access to the high-quality information.
Secondly, this method of studying can support society in terms of coronavirus. There is no need to gather 1000 students in one class with the help of co-teaching model: it might be dangerous for them as well as for professor as he or she is more likely to be in the most vulnerable, high age group. When it comes to the quality of such lectures, it will not fall dramatically because huge audience will be divided into smaller groups supervised and supported by tutors.
Thirdly, it will create ability to learn from the best in their fields cheaper. The knowledge and time of the most prominent people in the sphere cannot be cheap. As well as a person do not need to be a genius to explain students that 2+2=4. Two teacher model creates a unique possibility when tutors can answer simple questions or help students to solve simple tasks. When tutor is not able to answer the question or question is tricky, he will deliver it to the professor. As the output, the number of questions that professor should answer will decrease and he or she will be able to answer more interesting questions at the same time period.
As it is presented, co-teaching system is a nice technology which destroys distance gab, saves money of students and their parents, and makes our world safer place at the same time.
