There’s no doubt that technology has transformed just about every aspect of our personal and professional lives. Technology has changed how we communicate, access information, learn, and do business. With innovations like video conferencing, social media and tutoring software, technology has helped shape the modern tutoring industry.
In the past, face-to-face meetings were the only way tutoring sessions could be carried out. The introduction of video conferencing has changed this. With video conferencing tutors can offer online tutoring services and significantly expand their reach and client-base. They are no longer resisted by geographic location and can offer their services to students across the state, country or even the world. With screen-share capabilities tutors can share lesson plans and assignments on the computer screens of students who are located miles and miles away. Thanks to video conferencing online tutoring has become increasingly popular, as many students and tutors prefer the convenience of virtual tutoring sessions.
Tutoring businesses can benefit from social media in a number of ways. Establishing a presence on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and Pinterest allow tutoring businesses to connect with their audience on a more personal level. You can use social media to build stronger relationships with your students, as well as make a positive impact on potential clients. Use your social channels to share valuable information with your followers to build trust and establish your business as an industry expert.
Advanced tutoring software allows tutoring businesses to streamline their entire operations to improve efficiency. Administrators can manage all the administrative tasks, like scheduling and billing, using a single comprehensive software, while tutors can access their schedules and lesson plans and develop progress reports. Tutoring software increases productivity, saves time and money, and reduces administrative errors like scheduling conflicts.
As you can see, technology has had a big impact on the tutoring industry. How else has technology transformed your tutoring business?
