Summer break has finally arrived, and most students and their families are enjoying their free time. No wonder, the last school year with remote schooling for most of the time was particularly demanding.
It’s unbelievable but it’s true: Schools all over Indonesia have been shut for more than twelve consecutive months. Last spring, when the schools closed their gates one after the other, probably nobody would have expected them to stay closed for such a long time.
It is the dream of every parent to see their children excel in academic pursuits. Most times, regular classroom activities and parental assistance do not suffice, necessitating the need for tutoring.
In spring 2020, when the schools in Jakarta - and basically all over the globe - were closed due to the pandemic, we all probably didn’t expect that our kids would have to stay at home for such an incredibly long time.
It looks as if online schooling might be around students’ and parents’ lifes a bit longer than we all have expected in the spring of 2020, when the pandemic started.
With schools closed across the globe as one of the measures to control the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, online learning has become a common alternative for students and teachers. However, some students may find it difficult to adapt to virtual classroom learning as they feel more restricted to ask questions, are less exposed to hands-on activities, and are more reliant on self-study.
