Looking at the current educational trend there is a strong demand for tutors in the United States and UK, propelled in part by highly ambitious students aiming for admission into high profile courses and competitive colleges and by others who qualify for publicly funded tutoring because of No Child Left Behind. Some online, offshore companies already provide NCLB tutoring; others say they will apply to states soon.
The big question that arises here is can students learn this way? To me in-person tutoring is the best way to improve the grades in class but at the same time there are some reservations about the credibility and effectiveness of online tutoring companies.
But all those who use or sell online tutoring say it can be as effective and at fraction of cost.
I came across one such kid named Toby who is taking tuitions in Algebra and Writing skills with one online tutoring company . Going by his experiences I came to the conclusion that e-tutoring is in fact serves the purpose.
In other words the growing demand of online tutoring in UK and US has seen an unprecedented growth in online learning and companies. The new trend that can be seen here is more and more online tutoring companies are coming up and thus giving ample opportunities to the teachers to work in an online environment. Today e-tutoring is spreading faster than BPO that once served as the only outsourced entity. Today we can say that education is really going through globalisation and special thanks to companies like 24hourstutor.com who are taking it to new heights

I write quite a lot about this topic, and maintain a library of articles about challenges facing inner city schools, youth and families. I think this concept of tutoring has to be divided into two conversations. If a youth is motivated to learn, and needs extra help, the paid tutoring, face to face and/or via the Internet, can help.

However, if the youth is not motivated to learn, then it's unlikely the on-line type of service will have much power to attract him, and it's my opinion that the NCLB type of tutoring does not have much benefit either.

I encourage you to read articles on the http://tutormentor.blogspot.com blog or in the http://tutormentorconnection.ning.com page and follow the links to other web sites where there is extensive information on this topic.
