Being a private tutor and teaching online is a future proof job, so let us explain why and what you can do to be one.
The word e- tutor is used “to include academics, subject experts, facilitators, corporate trainers, instructors that undertake a role to support and enable students to learn effectively by using online tools.”
Traditionally a tutor will limit his services to a radius of 30 kilometers around his home base so he can minimize the time and expenses required to reach his student home. Now with Eliademy, tutors can expand and reach the whole world with just a few clicks and focused actions.
The main benefits of online tutoring versus in-person coaching are:
- Flexibility in terms of time and location
- Accessibility of content for student
- A global market versus a local one
- Convenience, is easier to help with homework
- Track and reporting in more detail
What the e-tutor needs to do?
As with the home tutoring service, an e-tutor should:
- Be responsive to learner’s queries, with Eliademy this is done by emails or posting a discussion subject
- Initiating activities, such our Quizzes, assessments or flash cards from our Edu Apps catalog
- Provide feedback on tasks or allow Parent to be observer
- Having a LIVE video chat for homework help

The online corporate training market is growing by 13% per year and is expected to keep this pace until 2017 . According to the 2014 Training Industry Report, 44% of US companies are planning to purchase online learning tools and systems and 41% intent to purchase a Learning Management System (LMS) .
