Why is online tutoring becoming more and more popular?
Its feasibility, availability and no arising costs in many cases are the main reasons for the digitization of tutoring.
The digitization of our world is progressing. This trend also becomes more and more common in the areas of teaching and tutoring. More and more children and parents search online for answers to their questions.
There are all kinds of reasons for that: You didn’t pay attention in school, the teacher wasn’t able to explain the subject correctly, you were sick or simply didn’t understand the subject, or you have to relearn the subject for your children after a break of many years.
According to a survey of the Bertelsmann Stiftung, parents in Germany invest 879 million euros annually in private tutoring for their children. They spend 87 euros on average each month for extracurricular education.
Almost every fifth high school student is attending tutoring. The highest demand is seen for math (61%), followed by foreign languages (46%) and German (31%).
Students from financially strong families (15%) - with a net household income greater or equal to 3000 euros - are more often attending tutoring than households with low incomes (12%). The reason for that is usually the financial scope of wealthy families allowing them to afford extracurricular education.
The internet changes this situation and makes education available for everyone, and often without or only little cost! Online tutoring does not only save you money, it’s also convenient. If you didn’t understand the subject at school you only have to look it up on the internet.
