The foremost guidance is given to a child by his parents at home. Therefore, your attention to your child's performance is a must during their learning process online. Also, one-on-one interaction between a student and a teacher can develop your child’s problem-solving skills.

Group Conversations

Online learning has proved to be the best platform for group interactions and discussions. Your child can interact with your teachers and classmates to solve queries related to the syllabus.

For that, they need to manage time wisely to make sure they submit their homework within the deadline given to them by their teacher.
