To ensure you get the most out of your online course, Southampton Data Science Academy is one of the few institutes to provide programmes that are tutor-led by data science experts.
What is a tutor-led online course?
Tutor-led online courses have one or more tutors who use their expertise to teach skills or material to individuals or groups through webinars, tutorials, online exercises, discussions and regular feedback.
What are the benefits of tutor-led courses?
There are many benefits of doing an online course that’s led by a tutor:
Your tutor’s passion for the subject will motivate you and inspire you, helping the content stick in your mind.
Your tutor will make complex data science ideas accessible. If you don’t understand the course material right away, they can provide an alternative explanation or use a different example.
If you have a question about the content, your tutors will be available to answer it. They will work with you to make sure you understand the subject fully.
Your tutor will help you become a more effective learner. They will ask you questions and discuss the course material with you, to help you find the solutions to problems yourself.
You’ll have the opportunity to discuss real-life examples from your workplace with your tutor, who may be able to suggest hands-on data science techniques you can use in your current role.
Your tutor will give you the confidence that you can succeed through providing frequent feedback on your progress throughout the course.
