How Does Online Tutoring Work?

Although our goal at Indianapolis Tutoring Online is to match students up with local tutors, sometimes you might find it more convenient for the tutoring to occur online. In the video below, a tutor available through WyzAnt (the matching service that we work with), shows you how online math tutoring works using Skype.

When might you use online tutoring rather than in-person? Online tutoring is a great solution when you live in an area where there are not many local tutors or the ones available are already booked. Online tutoring is also a good option when kids are home during the summer and do not have transportation available to take them back and forth to their tutoring sessions.

Watch the video below and see how it would work. Then try our tutor matching service to find tutors for the subject area that you need. Contact them via the secure contact submission form and begin negotiations to determine whether in-person or online tutoring would work best for your student.

    I am interested in on-line tutoring at the elementary level. I am also interested in working with autistic, asperger’s kids, and of those children with special needs.

    I am work with Wyzant at the time. Do you have any pointers for me to get across to them that I want to tutor on-line?

    My Best.

    Hi Susan,

    With Wyzant you basically just have to build a good profile and then start getting good ratings from the people who use you. It seems like the people who have the most complete profiles are the ones who get chosen the most by users. I don’t think that Wyzant in any way lends weight to any particular tutors. It’s all just user preference. I love the site concept!
