Online tutoring is a valuable alternative to in person tutoring. If you do not live in New York City, this is probably the only option for you. Or, if you live in New York but can not afford the rate for in person tutoring, this might be a great option for you.
To run my online classroom, I use the online whiteboard application "awwapp.com" combined with Skype video chat. There are many websites (such as clickmeeting.com) that combine the whiteboard and video into one screen but I have found that these sites are slow and often break down. I have tutored over 25 students using this online platform and it works beautifully.
Don’t think that online tutoring is a lower form of tutoring. I would pick online tutoring with me over regular in person tutoring with anyone else in a second!
