Q: What is the difference between online tutoring and home tutoring?
A: Online tutoring occurs via the internet in the comfort of your home or anyplace with internet access. During online tutoring sessions, tutors and their clients use live chat, a shared whiteboard, and/or other mutually agreed upon technology in order to interact.

Many tutors prefer online tutoring because no travel is required. Students like it, too, in part because it ordinarily costs less than home tutoring, which takes place in the client’s home. (Clients who prefer a different location may opt to meet at a more public place, such as the local library.)
For some, home tutoring is more effective than online tutoring because of its more personal nature as tutors and their clients work face to face. Often, long-term tutors become not only teachers, but also mentors to their clients, inspiring them to set higher academic goals.
