    Hello, I have around 30 hours experience tutoring online now and I received training from one of the top tuition agencies on how to deliver online tuition.

    Software you’ll need to get started:
    • Skype or Zoom (video calls. Zoom is less well known but supposedly more stable)
    • www.Bitpaper.io or www.Bramble.io (online whiteboards that change live when you or your student edit them; no need to download just visit the websites)
    • Google Docs (e.g. for editing or commenting on essays live; again, no need to download)
    Hardware you’ll need:
    • Decent laptop or desktop
    • Decent and stable internet connection (Don’t forget that after school/in the evenings everyone’s internet connection slows down because of local surges in internet usage. So if in doubt, upgrade your internet speed to 20mbps or more.)
    • Graphics tablet (allows you to write and draw on online whiteboards - mentioned above - with ease)
    I plan on writing a blog and/or creating a video guide on how to do tutor online soon. If you’d be interested to see it please vist my blog and/or subscribe to my newsletter :)
