    What are the common tools required for online tutoring?


    Keen to start a career in online coaching? Find out what are the easiest functional devices and equipment required to start such a venture and whether there are any institutes in Delhi that would provide basic coaching on how to use the devices.

    I am planning to start online tutoring after my retirement. As I am not efficient in using a desktop/laptop and associated devices and accessories, I would like to know what is the simplest equipment necessary for the purpose? What is the cost involved? Is there any institute in Delhi that coaches interested online teachers to use this equipment?

  • Generally, a teacher with offline teaching experience will excel well in online teaching also. To become an online tutor there are no special qualifications required. One should be able to work on their laptop or desktop and should also know how to make PowerPoint presentations. For this, you can join any computer institute and learn the basics so that you will become conversant in using a Laptop/ desktop for showing the material on the screen. There are many sites that are taking teachers for online tutoring. Generally. they will ask the person to take an online class with some of its students so that they can assess your teaching abilities.
    Another issue is at what level do you want to teach? For High school or primary school or college level? Based on that your subject expertise should also get improved. I suggest you to join in some tutorial college and start teaching so that you will get some understanding about the problems in teaching.
    www.superprof.co.in is one site where there are opportunities for online tutoring. You can visit their site for further details.
