The Future of Live Tutoring on the Internet

The Internet opened up huge opportunities for tech savvy tutors not that long ago. If you had a basic understanding of how to set up a website, a bit of SEO and online marketing knowledge, chances were high to grow a tutoring business from a local customer base into an international operation. Skype, tutoring platforms and marketplaces, YouTube and social media represent only a handful of the new tools tutors had at their disposal. Glory days.

Unfortunately, the Internet gives and the Internet takes away. This could be in the form of Google changing its algorithm, leading to the death of education marketplaces, like TeachStreet and countless other small businesses, because of a drop in organic traffic. But nowadays the biggest threat to human tutors are their technology driven counterparts and a growing crowd of interconnected learners.
