Benefits of Online Tutoring
It allows you to focus more by looking at the screen.
You can have the recording of the lesson.
You can use an interactive whiteboard, watch documents and videos.
You can just go home from work or school make yourself a nice cup of tea and start your lesson, or jump out of bed in your pyjamas and open your computer… less advisable if you are not a morning person.
Payment is easy online, you generally reserve your lesson by paying it in advance, buy a block of lessons or pay monthly, directly to a bank account or via paypal.
You can sometimes buy a certain amount of time and use it for quick help for homework or at your work whenever the tutor and you have 10 mn to spare.
