Acumen Tutoring has conducted remote tutoring sessions since 2014, mostly to graduated seniors who need help with college courses. In view of the pandemic, all of our tutoring will be conducted online for an indefinite period.
I think you'll find that our remote tutoring is as effective as sitting side-by-side and, of course, helps fight the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Some schools allow students to meet with me during their free blocks. There are two things you should know if you are meeting with me during your school day.
If you can’t find a place to set up on campus, we have set up Barbara's office at Acumen Tutoring (she's tutoring only from home these days) as an "isolation office" where students can come and set up their iPad, laptop, etc. for our Zoom sessions.
The office has its own entrance, is completely isolated from any other space, and is completely safe from transmitting viruses. (Click on the pictures at right for a better view.)
You can just come to the office as you did in the Good Old Days, but enter through the "B" door, and set up your equipment, lay out your papers, etc. on the desk. I'm in the adjoining room (my usual office), but we'll conduct our session using Zoom, as we have for the past several months.
Note that you will need to get permission to leave campus during that period.
