Make sure you’re in a quiet room

This applies to both the tutor and your student. Background noise can cause distraction and frustration when it comes to online conferencing. Being in a comfortable, quiet and conducive learning environment also encourages positive learning outcomes.

Make sure to turn off your laptop fan or standing fan, as it causes a lot of noise interference and can even disrupt your WIFI connection.

Choose a clean background to project

If you plan to have your webcam turned on towards your face, make sure you choose a suitable background to project. Preferably a plain wall, or a neatly organised area that is evenly lit.

Be prepared

Make sure you’ve all the resources you’ll need to conduct the lesson, so that you won’t waste time looking for them. Having your student wait might also decrease their attention span and interest in your lesson.

Also, be near a power source, in case you’ll need to charge your digital peripherals when they run out of battery during the lesson.

Always use headphones

Relying on the inbuilt speakers and microphone of your computers will not produce clean and quality sound, making it hard for your student to hear you clearly. Similarly, you won’t be able to hear your students responses. Make sure to use headphones/earpiece and an external microphone. It doesn’t have to be professional-grade equipment, you can even use the headset that comes with your smartphone.
