A distance learning tutor is an expert mentor or guide who is there to help and advice when needed. They let you set the pace at which you progress and won’t constantly be looking over your shoulder, but they will agree to a timetable with you and target dates for assignments. The relationship developed between tutor and student in a distance learning environment varies a lot. Some people are happy to work mostly on their own with little help or guidance, whereas others regularly draw on their tutor for support.

Our distance learning blueprint is ideal at whichever end of the spectrum you’re at – just get in touch as and when you require assistance. You can speak to your tutor by email, phone, or Skype when only a personal conversation will do. The Online Study Portals being used by EDUVISA, and our affiliated international university partners often make provision for a live communication portal that enables the tutor/lecturer to interact with the student in a “virtual classroom” environment. Around 80% of communication takes place via email and it is therefore important to set up your MS Outlook or another mail service in such a way that you keep a record of all correspondence.

Also, remember to visit the Message System on the EDUVISA Virtual University System (EVUS) regularly for updates from your tutor/lecturer. Upon enrolment, you will be assigned to an academic tutor who will be your primary point of contact throughout your course. This tutor may be anywhere in the world depending on the specific course you have registered for. Your tutor is dedicated to answering email enquiries as soon as possible, marking your assignments and advising you regarding deadlines that must be met.

They are also on hand to provide guidance if you need a helping hand with any of the subject matter. Our tutors have all been carefully selected for their subject knowledge and ability to deliver professional qualification assistance via distance learning. Each tutor works as part of a wider specialist team, so you always receive the support you need.
