I need not tell you but to start the online tuition at home you need to take online classes in the area of your home where the internet connects at its best.
If students face problems during lessons there is no point in teaching and they themselves turn their back and will go to some other website.
Ensure to keep your internet connection at its best! As of now the internet is still cheap in India.
5. Offer variety
Well, to be honest, it is impossible to understand everything in a lecture, no matter what. Because there is a lot to know.
And students end up missing something. But at the end of the video you can provide PDF, images to explain things, recorded video to understand things later, it would be great!
All this will make things easy for your students and definitely make your learners stick to you, that’s what an online teacher wants.
What is the Qualification to Start Online Tuition at Home?
I’ll start with the types of online tutors, first is teaching through video classes, E-books. Second is teaching where your students can access you, either directly or indirectly.
So, before getting a job in a company, these companies need a certain level of qualification. However, on the positive side, you get a steady salary and even overtime, if you do so.
Similarly, like an offline teaching job, if you are a beginner, don’t worry as these companies are going to train you to make things clear. Well if you are planning to start private online tuition, then you do not really require any qualification. That does not mean you can teach any subject.
Basic requirements of companies are,
- Teaching certificate
- M.A degree or PhD
- Subject-specific certificate
It could be varied from company to company.
