However, this perspective may be changing, and rapidly. The demand for online tutors has gone into orbit, especially in the western world where money for schooling is already tight. Online tutors offer quality assistance at a fraction of the price of most private in-person tutors, and they are extremely assessable to current generations.
Some of the Benefits of Online Tutoring
- Access: No matter what location a student may be in, and no matter what time it is in their part of the world, tutors are online standing at the ready. Through social media networks and free real-time communication software, everything is at the fingertips through a home computer, tablet, or laptop.
- Tools: As the digital sphere has evolved over the last decade, the amount of programs and other free tools at the disposal of online tutors is fascinating. Kids these days are perfectly comfortable and take to it much more naturally, good or bad, than to printed books. Why go printed when kids can have an entire library in their hands with ebooks?
- Cost: Because there is so much competition in the online tutoring industry, which is growing by the day, the cost has come down. One tip for consumers is to find tutors that are just starting out in the online realm, but yet have a decent verifiable resume. Once they get popular, the cost goes up quickly.
- Methods: Older generations may not acknowledge or may even fear the fact that education is shifting toward the inclusion of web-based formats. However, it cannot be denied that digital tutoring has introduced a new means of education to a new era.
Looking Forward into Education
Where the 21st century will go from here no one really knows for sure. Every social system seems to be in a state of disarray and decay. The workforce of modern capitalism is in utter shambles and no one, neither politicians nor business people, seem to know what to do. At the end of the day, life is going to go on. The economic pendulum of free market forces will swing back the other way and humanity will experience another technological boom. Education is vital to the fate of the species, and online tutors are going to play a huge roll in that. What other choice is there but to swim with the tide?
For a while this depression will linger on, until it’s pulled the mighty to their knees, and brought the endless wars to a halt. On the other end, through the depression, generations will be turning to the digital realm to learn and evolve. The tools are growing in number, the user friendly experience is becoming highly sought after, and the internet is fusing with humanity’s fate.
