Online Tuition - The way of the Future?

"The biggest advantage of online tuition is that your classroom and instructor are available 24/7." states Ranjith Pavithran, founder of TuitionMart, which claims to be the world's cheapest online tuition provider. Ranjith also believes that online tuition could be the window for students to the outside world. Students get to make contact with other students and tutors from different countries with these interactions allowing students to better understand the dynamics and culture of other countries. "These are vital skills necessary to succeed in the future global village." stated Ranjith. Because of the one-on-one nature of online education, students can clarify doubts fast and move forward quickly. People who are not comfortable asking questions in the usual classroom environment, can avoid this by typing their questions in the chat window or shooting an email to their instructor/s seamlessly even after the class is finished. Ranjith also stated that "The established players in this industry, charge anywhere between 20$ /hr to 100$/hr. But if you do some research, you can even find companies charging 10$/hr."
