SURGE IN TUTORING IN A POST COVID-19 ERA
The Corona Virus Pandemic has created a considerable increase in remote learning. Nationwide school closures in 190 countries due to the pandemic impacted 1.6 billion school, college & university students. This resulted in exponential growth for one of the world’s fastest-growing industries- the Tutoring Industry.
With a sudden shift to digitalization with online teaching, education technology has moved from classrooms to the remote learning arena. Along with virtual classrooms, private home tutoring too has now moved to virtual tutoring platforms. Before the pandemic, education technology was growing at a rapid pace expecting to be worth US$350 billion by 2025 and since March 2020 the demand for educational apps has risen by 90%.
Online Tutoring is now main-stream, as educators, students, and parents see its far-reaching benefits. With access to a larger range of top-quality tutors, innovative apps, personalized self-paced classes, and a versatile approach, online tutoring has moved from being just a supplement to a well-established system of education.
With students requiring present-day IT skill-sets in addition to school and college courses, online tutoring has been providing a wide variety of Information Technology centered classes as the demand for short-term skilled-based courses has increased to safeguard jobs for students in the future.
Tutors have been able to reach a larger selection of students. University students have been capitalizing on the advantages online tutoring has to offer. For a few hours of work a Tutor can earn a sizable income, this has resulted in a rise in university students becoming part-time tutors.
