Of the many important factors that determine a child’s success in academics, the role of tutors is the only consistent factor we all seem to agree. In the real world, good tutors are a rarity. In our budding years, we all have come across tutors with the amazing skill to make boring subjects interesting. If you’re gifted with this rare talent, then online tutoring is an opportunity to gain additional benefits from following your passion.
Wonder what we’re talking about? Here are the advantages of online education to tutors.
Teaching is an opportunity to learn
‘If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.’ – Albert Einstein.
To make complex subjects palatable to young minds, tutors are often required to revisit the topic. This allows you to approach a subject from different angles, to keep up with the topic, and discover new information as you start communicating with your pupils.
Make money doing what you are passionate about.
Although money is not the main draw to become an online tutor, it can be a great way to earn an additional income by doing what you do best – teaching. The supplementary income from online tutoring can grow to a sizable sum over a period of time. In addition, online education allows you to connect with those who need guidance on subjects you enjoy and are interested in teaching.
Flexible scheduling and convenience
Regular teaching job is far from a 9-to-3.30 gig; it’s tough, tiring, and hectic, more of a way of life than a job. In contrast, online tutoring revolves around you, your availability and convenience. You’re free from the shackles of rigid hours and you have the freedom to take a day off (more if your situation so demands). What’s more, online education allows tutors to impart wisdom and pass on knowledge to children from across the world. Time zones are no longer a barrier, so you get to choose your hours.
