What equipment do I need for online tutoring?
For online tutoring with OGA Tutoring, you'll need a few basic pieces of equipment to ensure a smooth and effective learning experience:

1. **Computer or Tablet:**
A computer, laptop, or tablet with a stable internet connection is essential for accessing our virtual tutoring sessions.

2. **Internet Connection:**
A reliable high-speed internet connection ensures seamless communication and interaction during online sessions.

3. **Webcam:**
A built-in or external webcam allows for video communication between you and the tutor, creating a more engaging and personalized learning environment.

4. **Microphone:**
A microphone, either integrated into your device or as an external accessory, allows you to communicate with your tutor clearly.

5. **Headphones or Speakers:**
Good-quality headphones or speakers help you hear the tutor's instructions and explanations without any distractions.

7. **Zoom:**
You will need Zoom on your computer, so if you haven't downloaded it you will need to load it on your computer prior to the session.

8. **Your textbook/schoolwork:**
You will need your textbook every session, any homework you need to work on.  If you have any worksheets you want us to work on, you can scan them to me before we begin a session and then we can work on them together.

Before your first online tutoring session, it's a good idea to test your equipment and internet connection to ensure everything is functioning correctly. If you encounter any technical issues, our team is here to assist and provide guidance to ensure a successful learning experience.. 

How does personalized tutoring work?
We'll meet on Zoom using your assigned link. With a shared whiteboard on the screen, we'll discuss your focus areas and dive into concepts. Whether using an online textbook or working on handouts, the process mimics an in-person session, just with computers on both ends. It's straightforward and effective, just like being in the same room.

What are small group sessions?
Our Small Group Sessions bring together 2 to 5 students who are enrolled in the same math course. Whether they're from different schools, the same school, or even in the same class, they can receive group tutoring at the special rate. For instance, if your child and their friends are all taking Algebra 1, our group sessions are a perfect fit. 

What's the process for signing up for tutoring sessions?
If you're looking to schedule a tutoring session outside of our recurring schedule, the process is simple. Access our client portal using your credentials, where you'll find a user-friendly calendar displaying the available session times. From there, select a time slot that aligns with your schedule and preferences. Once you've chosen your preferred session time, click on the slot to register for the session. You'll then receive a confirmation for your registered session.
