Webcams

Out-of-town readers are encouraged to use webcams when interacting with  students.

Why use a webcam?

We believe that webcams provide a richer and more personal interaction that a phone conversation or email/instant messenger. But don’t take our word for it — here’s what past readers have to say:

  • “I feel that the web conference meetings were beneficial for the student and time efficient.”

Interested?

If you decide to use a webcam and you don’t have one, we can help you purchase one (preferred) or we may be able to provide one for you (subject to availability). We will work with you every step of the process: from setting up your webcam to using Skype or other programs to communicate with your student.
