According to the market research firm Global Industry Analysts, the global private tutoring market will reach $102.8 billion whereas the online tutoring market will worth more than $12 billion by 2018. The online tutoring industry is increasing rapidly because of the failure of the academic system to cope with the needs of the students, vast curriculum and the desire of parents to provide the best possible education to their children. It’s not just the school-going students who seek for online tutoring services, even graduates, postgraduates as well as professionals are increasingly looking to improve their technical skills and industry expertise with the help of online tutors. Today, a teacher based anywhere across the world can remotely teach students in their home country or in lands across the sea through online tutoring platforms.

Kolkata-based MyPrivateTutor was ventured in 2002 with a mission to make it easy and efficient for students and tutors to find each other. The company’s uniquely designed online video tutoring system breaks the barrier of geographical location and associates learners with best teachers across the globe. From Maths to Music, Abacus to Accounting, Spanish to Sanskrit and Computers to Chess, for tiny tots or for seasoned professionals, there are thousands of dedicated tutors on MyPrivate Tutor for students to choose from. As an authenticated, trustworthy, convenient and user-friendly platform, MyPrivateTutor manages to fulfill every expectation of learners as well as tutors. For instance, the company has assisted Ajit Pillai, a student from Coimbatore, to find a good Physics teacher for himself. “Millions of students and parents have benefited from MyPrivateTutor over the last 14 years,” proudly remarks Sandip Kar, Co-Founder, MyPrivateTutor.

MyPrivateTutor not only treats its tutors, instructors and institutes as business partners but also support to provide quality instruction to their students and increase their earnings and professional reputation

The platform has seen teachers starting out as purely offline teachers and then moving on to take advantage of online tutoring. Its comprehensive testing platform (Testhub) allows learners to take tests on a number of subjects right from board exams to competitive exams. These tests provide detailed analytics of student by indicating their areas of strengths and weaknesses. “We connect tutors to the students, depending on how a student learns, and the kind of subjects he wants to know,” utters Anindya Kar, Co-Founder, MyPrivateTutor.
