One on One online  TUTORING-THE Potential to become  BILLION DOLLAR industry

 

Before Covid, a home visit of a tutor is a common form of culture in private tutoring. In part time, teachers and graduate students supported local children with their studies, and earned a generous $10-12 per hour. Most of the subjects taught by tutors include algebra, science and English. The tutoring technique remained the same for many years.

 

Quick forward to the modern technology age, and connecting people across the global is a click away. In the current covid scenario, Online tutoring is revolutionizing the way tutors teach their students. Due to that “The world’s now come on a single stage”  for a tutor with the right skills and teaching experience. From India to the USA, a tutor can be from anywhere and teach students remotely in their home country or across the sea. To support the remote teaching process, online tutors website like Sonlinetutor.com

 

It’s not about the typical school-going student who is searching for services for online tutoring. With the support of online tutors, graduate and postgraduate students as well as professionals are increasingly looking to develop their technological abilities and industry expertise. Higher education and management topics such as logistics and supply chain management, competitive test preparations, business administration, accounting and finance, lean and six sigma, aside from conventional school subjects,Online tutoring is given for language courses as well(especially TOEFL and IELTS coaching).

 

Not surprisingly, depending on their academic credentials, experience , and professional skills, the average online tutor will receive anywhere from $10 to $100 an hour (or even more).

 

Exciting growth rates continue to occur in the private tutoring industry. The size of the tutoring industry was estimated at $5 billion to $7 billion a year by education research company EduVentures in 2007. Only five years later, a market analysis firm Global Industry Analysts (GIA) “Private Tutoring: A Global Strategic Business Survey” from 2012 predicted that by 2018 the global private tutoring market would hit US$ 102.8 billion. It is estimated that the online tutoring market is worth more than that US $12 billion

 

According to the GIA report , the United States, Europe and Asia-Pacific nations, primarily Hong Kong , Japan, Singapore, South Korea , and China, account for 90 percent of the demand for private tutoring services. India has emerged as a leader in affordable e-tutoring services (particularly mathematics), with the US serving as its largest client base.

 

Owing to the inability of the school system to cope with the needs of students, and the willingness of parents to have the best possible education for their children, the online tutoring industry is growing rapidly. Slashing public school funding has exacerbated teacher-studio ratios in many nations. The vast curriculum in some countries has made it possible for parents to enlist private tutor services.

 

Poor school infrastructure, unprecedented competition (especially for coveted courses such as engineering), and the need for young tech-savvy professionals to continuously upgrade their skills are other reasons for the boom of online tutoring in recent years.
