How Can I Become An Online Teacher Or Tutor Online?

Although the possibility of online tutoring via webcam has existed for several years, many private tutors do not yet know exactly how to handle it and what online maths tutoring for example, actually means

But how can you become a teacher online?

A lot changes with tutoring via webcam: Electronic worksheets are required, digital media are used and contact with the student becomes faster and easier through uncomplicated exchange using instant messaging programs, such as Skype.

The goal of extracurricular tutoring is always the student's success. You can provide tuitions to students from elementary school to high school and help them be more successful in school. Like A-level biology tutors at StudyMind do, Digital technologies are increasingly taking their place in schools. To get used to it, there's nothing like tutoring via webcam. So you can support your students with their homework directly from your PC. Use the technology as support so that the student can contact you at any time via chat and you can exchange ideas in the "digital language".


Discover with us now how you can give tutoring and earn money online thanks to the new technologies and thus become a modern online teacher!

How do you give tutoring via webcam?

● Use the right material
● High quality material for online tutoring via webcam is the be-all and end-all.
● The best tutoring lesson is of no use if the student cannot hear you 50% of the time or if the picture is distorted.
● The internet certainly has some advantages, but it can also turn out to be a trap, especially when it's slower than you would like...
● Before you offer lessons via webcam, you are now officially called to check the speed of your internet connection! ;) More on that in a moment.

Because we value your time, we have done our homework and also prepared a small "shopping list" for you:

● A high resolution webcam for efficient video conferencing (between € 30 and € 60) or a digital camera that can function as a webcam (between $ 100 and $ 300),
● A headset to better communicate with the student (between 15 and 30 €),
● A new PC, ideally with Windows 10 or comparable.

With an extremely old PC, online tutoring will probably not work!

Good material is not everything, but it is extremely important.

In addition to good material, you also need... a pinch of motivation... a spoon of passion...
... AND the right software, namely:
● An instant messaging system (Skype, Google Hangouts, Slack, Zoom etc.),
● A program for storing files or a cloud (Dropbox, Google Drive etc.),
● Possibly a planning app (Podio etc.),
● An online media library (Youtube, Channelprogress, etc.).

Check your internet connection

Online classes, even with good material, can be significantly disrupted by connection problems!In order to avoid such problems and to be able to impart your knowledge under the best conditions, you should check your internet connection. If it is available in your place of residence, you should definitely use the Internet via fiber optic cable, as it makes your connection much faster!

● You should also check your student's internet connection.
● You can find free speed tests on the Internet, such as the speed meter.

Use online resources

If you are already working on the Internet, you should make the most of it! Whether for tutoring for the secondary level I, the secondary level II, or for a regular practice of your student between the lessons: Countless online resources are available for your preparation. You can organize your tutoring directly online via webcam for free!

Depending on the subject, you can choose the right resource:

● Website about the respective subject,
● Free educational apps for smartphones (Duolingo, Babbel etc.),
● MOOCs (free online courses, usually at university level),
● Online lessons recorded on video (many YouTube users specialize in teaching via video).

If you take tutoring seriously, are punctual and act pedagogically, you can adapt your lessons to the level of your student. You can also get support from YouTubers when preparing your course!

How do you organize tutoring via webcam?

Keep in touch

Giving private lessons at home isn't everything: you need to make sure that the student not only completed the lesson but understood what it was about! For this it is essential that you stay in permanent contact with your student. You can stay available for any questions through emails or instant messengers (e.g., WhatsApp). Staying in contact with the student between tutoring sessions will save you time during the class: Instead of talking about the difficulties of the previous lesson for 20 minutes, the student was able to solve his problems on his own. Don't hesitate to give your student some online assignments for the next tutoring class.

If your students can easily reach you, they can also let you know if he is prevented from doing so at short notice! In addition, you can then organize your timetable much more easily and accept more students if you have (spontaneous) free time in your timetable.

Check homework

Lessons via webcam do not always have to be tutoring: There are also offers for homework help via webcam. Your student sends you a scan of his homework or shows it to you via the webcam and your task is to support the student with his homework – sometimes only morally. Because the rule is: those who believe in themselves can do more. A good tutor not only conveys pure specialist knowledge, but also the right methodology so that the student can develop new self-confidence. In the event that your student does get a bad grade, you should try to defuse the situation as best you can by convincing him that your collaboration will give him a better grade next time. You can also share online exercises with your student or create them in the online planning tools. Your correction will be simplified many times over and you can help your student to improve in his problem subjects.

Online courses are available for the following majors:

● Mathematics,
● English,
● Story
● Geography
● Philosophy
● Physics
● Chemistry
● Biology

With intensive learning and the right methods, your student will pass the upcoming exams with the left hand and not only improve his grade point average, but also his motivation.

To listen

The golden rule of private lessons is listening: With the right pedagogy, you can work wonders! Teachers often only have one choice: "cramming" the material. If you don't come along, you stay seated. Often the students' questions remain unanswered. No matter where you are, whether in the USA or abroad: The most important thing is that you listen to your students. The goal is efficient tutoring on the Internet to counteract bad grades. Once you really know your student, you can also become their educational advisor for their future career choice! Have an open ear for your student. So you can probably save him from sitting down. In addition, good pedagogy is very much appreciated by the students: If you want to have good ratings on StudyMind, you should better listen to the expectations of your students so that bad grades are avoided!

The advantages of tutoring via webcam

● Savings for the parents and the private teacher
● Private lessons at home via webcam are not only playful, but also economical! This not only means time, but also money.
● The parents save on the costs for the tutoring and the tutor saves the costs of getting to the tutor (public transport, car, parking lot, etc.)

But that is not all!

As a tutor, you no longer have to deduct the price of the underground ticket, bus ticket, train ticket or parking ticket from your earnings. The only thing you have to pay in any case are taxes and social security contributions...

A wider range of students

Online lessons are particularly interesting for certain types of teachers:

● Graduated teachers: Particularly popular with the students are teachers who have studied for teaching at a university and, in the best case, have already had experience as "real" teachers in a school. If you have completed a teaching degree or even a scientific degree (for example in problematic number 1: mathematics), you will find new students without any problems.
● Specialized Teachers: Not everyone is a math teacher, and that's a good thing. Because if you can teach an exotic subject (for example preparation for a certain aptitude test, English as a foreign language, or ancient Greek), it is better if you can be reached by students from all over the world. The rarer your subject, the better you get paid for online tutoring!
● Native Speaking Teachers: If you want to teach foreign languages and you come from another country, you will succeed! In fact, parents always prefer teachers from the country whose language they teach.
