  • Considering the difficulties that students may face when learning online and being able to provide quick solutions to any problems that could be faced.
  • Communicating with the school to relay any issues that may arise within the online learning process, as well as offering feedback to teaching staff/parents as well as the students whenever necessary.
  • Working on an individual basis with students, to reinforce any learning that has been undertaken that day, whilst also encouraging students to work independantly to complete tasks. 
  • Competence in using an online platform in order to benefit the overall progress of individuals.
