Being located in Tokyo, you can teach students from California, New York, Australia, Middle East, any where! There is no end to the territories involved. Majority of people who are much informed about the system of online education simply never believe that there really are teachers who impart education. They take it all as fake and bogus. But all those of you who are currently reading this article have accepted the importance of online education and are very well aware that is exists, exists in reality and is helping people all over the world. It has made learning easier and convenient.
Institutions that provide online courses also hire teachers for those courses. As learning is a never ending experience, so is the process of teaching. There is always need of more lecturers, more qualified personnel to distribute there knowledge. Online tutoring is not just through the online universities and institutions, but there are also many private institutions that outsource services of tutors to students who need help or assistance in their daily coursework, homework, assignments etc. These tutors work on daily or hourly salary basis. Such outsourcing organizations work as a mediator between the student and tutor. They make sure that a student gets a tutor according to his needs and a tutor gets students according to his experience and qualification. It ties the student and tutor into a bond or a contract. This way the student gets full academic assistance for the amount he pays and the tutor gets his due payment after teaching the student. This way the rights of both the tutor and student are secured.
This system of online tutoring is very helpful for people who are disabled yet educated. We have many such people around us who may be genius a mind but due to some disastrous circumstances, have to now spend there lives bound to bed or chairs at homes. They can now earn for themselves, instead of sitting and wasting their lives, ending up being a paranoid. They can join such outsourcing organizations as tutors and make use of their lives.
One misconception that I'd like to clear here is that it is not necessary that you possess a big university degree to become a tutor. Well it definitely is a requirement when you apply to some College or University as an online teacher, but when teaching via these outsourcing organizations it isn't a pre requisite. We have an abundance of people in our surroundings, those who may not possess some college degree but their knowledge is incomparable and unbeatable. They can teach through such outsourcing organizations as ratings at such places are developed through the remarks given by the students who have been taught by the tutor and not on their academic qualifications. Therefore, making it a golden opportunity for people with knowledge. Knowledge as agreed has no boundaries. Similarly is tutoring. It is not restricted to regular subjects like mathematics, science, history, geography etc but very interesting subjects like aromatherapy; gardening, auras etc are also included in it.
Thus if you term yourself well versed in any subject of life, you have qualified to become an online tutor. The amount you get paid depends on the number of students you get who are interested in that particular specialization of yours. So Best of Luck with Your Quest! No one is useless in God's world.
