While there are large numbers of great teachers available throughout the world, great teaching and great tutoring are very different in many ways and require very different approaches. There are also many differences between classroom teaching and off-school tutoring methodologies. With this in mind, the MySchoolPage team worked with other global academics to create the unique MySchoolPage e-Tutoring System (the STS), which is based on Richard E. Mayer’s ‘Cognitive Theory of Multimedia Learning’. The STS is a highly structured academic system. Through the use of a 9-stage lesson organizational structure, STS is used in every MySchoolPage session ensuring better engagement, superior retention and rapid results. STS includes the use of cognitive tools such as Mind Mapping, self-diagnosis tools such as Comfort Boxes, and Learning Outcomes that are highly student centric.
Furthermore, the structured approach is developed on the philosophy that every child needs customized attention for optimal development. This is strongly supported by research. Benjamin Bloom, a prominent educational psychologist, observed “a tutored student with individualized attention was above 98% of the students in conventional tutoring (or mass tutoring)” (findings initially reported in 1984 in the journal “Educational Researcher”).
Founded in 2012, MySchoolPage is poised to evolutionize the nascent industry, delivering online education to the K-12 educational segment, through its unique e-Tuition.
