How does it work?

There is a fixed schedule for each class. Students log in each day to a tutoring session, where they see on their computer screens a live moving image of what the teacher's writing on the whiteboard, as well as hearing the teacher speak and explain the subject at hand.

Students can 'raise their hand' to ask a question by clicking a particular button on the interface, after which the teacher calls upon them and answers their question accordingly. All students need to complete a quiz at the end of every daily session to ensure that they've paid attention and absorbed the day's materials.

Real-time quality monitoring ensures that the teacher focuses on teaching while a moderator ensures that the session moves forward and that all students receive attention.

OstazOnline offers an excellent alternative to in-person tutoring, because of
  • convenience: Children learn in the privacy and comfort of their own home, without the need to travel to and from an in-person tutor

  • top-notch teachers: Teachers are hand-selected, thoroughly screened, and backed and monitored by consultants for every subject who bring years of experience from the Egyptian Ministry of Education

  • value for money: A 60% cost savings over in-person tutoring

OstazOnline builds trust with parents because

  • the average class size is 15 pupils, meaning children get focused attention from their teacher

  • attendance is tracked, with repeat absences resulting in parents receiving a phone call from the educational administrators

  • real-time quality monitoring during each daily session ensures that the tutoring session incorporates all students' needs and that the session moves forward as per the learning plan

  • a call center is available for help 6 days a week (every day except Thursday) from 1am to 11pm

  • if the child needs to miss a lesson such as due to illness, live lessons are recorded and archived for offline access

  • service is on a month-by-month contract, so parents can see the results and decide for themselves about continuing, rather than getting locked into a long-term agreement

  • parents are able to see results through their child’s performance in their day-to-day school work and exams

  • OstazOnline is the education that helps students understands rather than memorize
