Tutors-Live connects students with teachers for 1-on-1 lessons online and in-home, in any subject, language and country. With Tutors-Live you can:
The Internet is changing the way people learn and teach. Thanks to faster connections and interactive text, voice and screen-sharing services, online learning has become an effective and affordable option for many learners.
Online learning can take many forms (reading articles, watching instructional videos, reading electronic books etc.) but nothing is easier, faster and more productive than a one-on-one session between student and tutor.
Efficient and inexpensive, online ("live") tutoring is already used by thousands of students worldwide and is expected to become more and more popular in the next years. One reason for the success of Online Tutoring is the possibility for a student to find the best suited tutor without the physical and geographical limitations of conventional tutoring.
At the same time, direct tutoring (i.e. in-home or in-office) is still preferred by many, and is irreplaceable for sports, music, various hobbies etc.
A website that matches learners and teachers for both online and direct tutoring worldwide is the best solution to find the most adequate tutor for the learning needs of everybody.
Tutors-Live's mission is to provide the best solution to match the demand and offer of online "live" tutoring as well as conventional in-home or in-office tutoring, making the task of finding the right teacher for private lessons an easy, productive and pleasant experience.
At the same time, Tutors-Live aims to realize a global network of learners exchanging knowledge, ideas and educational resources.
