Nowadays, there are many online platforms for tutors. You see you can teach via Youtube, Skype, Online whiteboards, and multiple other websites that promote online teaching. These platforms are excellent to share knowledge but might not have any financial benefits. Recently though there are many more websites that promote online teaching and are even paying teachers to put up courses on their websites. You can post your offline session video or can take live classes where you get students from all over the world. This only means that you will get a huge market to explore yourself as a teacher. Being an online tutor is slowly becoming a bigger deal because people have started understanding the value of online learning.
If you see, in India there are very few teachers per student and there are millions of students here themselves who are willing to learn technical courses like mobile repairing, laptop or camera repairing, etc. So If you think about the whole world you can imagine how many people there for the market. The Internet has done many good things and one of that is that it connects the whole world. There are no boundaries. As mentioned earlier, many people are willing to learn technical courses but they cannot because of the time issues or travel issues. Some of these potential tutors are students and some are people who are busy doing jobs.
Online tutoring has changed the education scene. A tutor can teach according to his suitable time and from his own place and a student can learn at a time that suits him from his home itself without the hassle of commute. The only thing that both parties require is access to a computer and good internet connection. It also increased the capacity of a tutor, which means a tutor teach many students at a time.
