  • Start Paving The Way Towards Learning A New Skill Today January 5, 2017 Posted in: Education

    workshop with students

    In order to have the best chances at landing good jobs and generally being successful, one is recommended to have a pretty large skillset to bring to the table. It doesn’t mean that everyone needs to know dozens of different skills, but having one or two of the skills that are uncommon but sought after definitely increases your chances. Of course, career building and success shouldn’t be the only reason you decided to learn something new. In fact, most people will seek tutorship to gain some knowledge in a subject they are personally interested into.

    Look at the rates per class

    The first step you should take when looking for an online private tutor is how much they charge. Their fees will usually be pretty low compared to the tutors you can find through ads and through recommendations. The only thing you are most likely going to need to have a lesson with one of the online tutors is a working communication program or tool, usually Skype, which warrants a webcam or a working microphone if you are not comfortable with showing your face to a stranger.

    If you want to learn on your own, you have that option

    One of the great benefits of finding an online private tutor is that it won’t take long to find one and the tutor you do end up finding is going to dedicate all of their time and effort to teaching you whatever is that you need to know. You can always enroll in group classes, because there are websites and people offering the possibility of a virtual classroom, so to speak, but if you prefer one – on – one training, hiring a private tutor just for yourself is probably going to be a much better idea.

    See if you are a good match outside of the classroom

    Remember that looking for a tutor is somewhat of a matchmaking game as well. You need to be able to choose a tutor whose teaching skills are going to complement your learning methods nicely and someone with whom you could generally get along with even outside of learning. People don’t pay a lot of attention to this, and this happens to be one of the most underestimated qualities. Think about it – would you want to learn something from someone you just can’t stand?

  • Salient Figures from the United States October 13, 2016 Posted in: Information

    The United States has been producing eminent scholars, scientists and literary experts for decades. They have influenced the world and continue to help change it for the better.

     

    Scientist: Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, Nikola Tesla, Graham Bell, Stephen Hawking and a long list of inventors are all from the United States of America. It is no wonder that M.I.T is the world’s No. 1 university at the moment.

     

    Scholars: Literary experts are also a key product of the American Education system. Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner, Mark Twain, Fitzgerald, Steinback, Toni Morrison, Edgar Allan Poe, Sir Arthur Doyle, Stephen King and much more have proved this time and again.

     

    Innovation: For over decades U.S has been leading the world into more technologically advanced solutions. Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Charles Flintt and various other contemporary innovators stand top of the list.

     

    Well, the list is long and the time is short, so I believe I will leave the detailed lists and description for future articles.

  • Literacy Rate in the United States October 13, 2016 Posted in: Education

    On the other hand, if we look at the overall conditions in the country we stand at a 99% literacy rate in the country which although is 45th in the World by one rating yet the standing is by almost a negligible margin when you realize that the countries are competing within 1% margin. A newer more advanced rating system ranked the United States the 7th most literate nation in the world. Whereas, the literacy rate has reported being constant over a decade or more.

  • American Universities in Top 10 of the World October 13, 2016 Posted in: Education

    Four out of the Top Five universities in the world are American universities. Over five if we consider the latest top ten rating for 2016. It is a proud moment indeed because we had tough competition from the UK. Oxford and Cambridge are institutions established and operating for over a hundred years. The fact that American universities produce more leaders than any other country in the world speaks a lot about the standards of education in the country.

  • My Thoughts on Education in the United States October 13, 2016 Posted in: Information

    Education, Health and Standard of Living have been the prime focus of pretty much about every other government in the United States. We have had some of the most prominent scientists from this great country and I am sure we will continue to produce more eminent scholars, scientist, and researcher. I have been discussing Educational standards in the United States over different platforms for quite some time and I think it’s about time I sum it all up.
