Giving Online Tutoring

I'm looking for ways of giving online tutoring to students around the world, but I'm having trouble finding sites that offer such services. I've found a few US based sites, but they mostly require their tutors to be based in the US.

I don't mind how the site works particularly, but I do need a place that isn't worried about teaching qualifications or place of residence. If I can avoid Internet Explorer as a requirement, that would be good too.

Do you know of any good sites that I could look at?

Just film yourself solving problems on a piece of paper, or get a good screen recorder and produce videos using a graphics tablet.

Post your videos up on Youtube - and promote your channel. If your videos are good - you will get followers over time. You have to be patient though. Only monetize your videos once you have many subscribers.

You don't need anyone's permission to start teaching maths online. The web is very open.

I would say the online tutoring business is quite dead anyway. You can find thousands of free maths videos online. Why would you pay for a tutor?

Math Focus: Trigonometry
Just make a Youtube channel and solve problems. Here is a website I highly recommend you should aspire like A-level Maths Revision, GCSE Maths, SAT and IB Math Revision Videos from ExamSolutions.

Those videos tend to be of poor quality. Even when they're completely sound mathematically and have good presentation, they tend to cover just easy concepts and questions.

The main problem with videos is that they are not interactive. You either understand or you do not. A live tutor can watch your facial expressions and body language to see whether you follow the logic. You can ask for further explanation.

I do now teach online at InstaEdu (mostly unscheduled), but I'd like to find some more long-term work too.

Google "Skype math tutoring" and you'll find that your competition is very organized. You'll get plenty of good ideas from studying their marketing presentations.
