Online tutoring is growing rapidly especially due to the COVID 19 Pandemic and it is a billion-dollar industry.
The best way to teach skills online is to start blogging. You can also consider starting a YouTube channel but blogging is more profitable (at least to me).
You can learn and teach everything from search engine optimization to cooking, email marketing, life advice, productivity, and the list goes on.
The key here is IMPLEMENTATION. Most people learn but don’t implement what they learn. Take action. Learn every day. Be consistent. That’s how you can monetize your skills online.

Although I support physical education due to many factors involved but with this Corona Epidemic I have witnessed an ample increase in online learning.
Also for people working or having a daytime job, online learning seems a very effective way to increase new skills.
I suggest people not to rely on Udemy, Skillshare, Coursera but also check Youtube as well Look into Influencers Private Courses. Some don’t rely on these sites but have their own private courses on their own blogs or groups or youtube pages.
Lastly, I will say, keep on improving yourself and never settle.

When it comes to learning or teaching new skills online, we can’t ignore the power of video or webcam. It’s an ideal medium to show a demo, make a meaningful connection and interaction, and more.
It can significantly enhance your course’s engagement, retention, and completion rates if your learners can see who is talking to them. However, it sometimes can be quite challenging to keep everyone engaged in your online courses.
In this case, you can keep them on their toes by having every single learner respond to your questions by typing in the chatbox. Or, you can also leverage quiz tools or fun distance learning games to ensure they pay attention.

In order to teach new skills online, you’ll need to learn to use the tools that you’ll need on a day-to-day basis. The first such tool is Zoom which allows you to teach your students via live video, screen sharing, whiteboard sessions, etc.
Another tool that you’re very likely to use is Google Docs. You can share your course materials and assignments with your students in a Google Doc and then you can collaborate with them in real-time.
Apart from these, you may also need a scheduling tool that lets your student book sessions with you and lets you manage your schedule easily.

As online learning has become a widely adopted form of education, it’s surprising how “stuck” many providers are in a traditional way of teaching. It’s usually a one-way presentation involving slides and videos, trying to emulate live classrooms. In an attempt to be close to the real thing, we limit ourselves.
Why don’t we let that go, and explore how far we can take it with the abundance of tech at our disposal? When we teach about gravity, why not take your students into space with a VR experience? Hopefully, this year educators will show more creativity and offer training in a fully adaptive, interactive environment with a multisensory approach.

With the current government laws in place meaning face-to-face teaching or meet-up is not allowed or very difficult to happen. However, it moved online with people using software such as Zoom, Google Hangout or Skype meaning you can teach someone a skill or lesson from the comfort of your home.

It also takes personal experience with these controversial methods. That’s why I write educational articles online to help spread awareness and gain people’s trust. People trust other people’s experiences if they coincide with the research. Teaching by experience is the best tool there is!

When studying online, strict time management is essential. Not just in ensuring that all assignments are completed on time, but in making time to conduct the necessary readings required for the course. There is something freeing about learning new skills and conducting courses online. You can conduct classes at a time suitable for you. Learning around your current commitments and a full-time job. This makes enrolling in courses previously off-limits are now viable.
One of the biggest challenges of studying online, and is the lack of vital interaction. Whether this interaction is with tutors or fellow students, this missing element can be a challenge for students that thrive being around other students.

Free platforms like YouTube and blogs are a quick Google search away and can bring up thousands of resources to help you learn a new skill. Alternatively, you can turn to paid platforms (like Skillshare or LinkedIn Learning) that offer affordable courses.
Here’s a quick tip: if you want to find free courses, head to Google and search: “free” + “course” + TOPIC (replace the topic with what you’re hoping to learn). You’ll find YouTube videos, blogs, and free resources to get you started!

Online education opens everyone to a new world of opportunities.
It doesn’t matter if you want to learn a foreign language, how to create a mobile app, or how to do digital marketing. Fortunately, all of that is now possible through services like Udemy or All you need is a computer with a stable internet connection and the will to learn.

The online learning industry is growing at a breakneck pace and it’s easy to see why.
Firstly, the pandemic and lockdowns have forced people who would otherwise learn in-person to adapt to trying distance learning. This has allowed a lot of new people to experience how efficient it can be.
There was a time when online videos were hard to stream due to poor formats and slow internet connections but we are now mostly in an age where you can create and share a video anywhere in the world in moments.
For the student, you can often learn skills far more affordably by learning online and you can learn subjects that you might not have access to in the area that you live.
For the teachers, you can have a much wider impact by distributing your knowledge around the world in video format than you can in a classroom of 5-50 people. It’s also far easier to scale the revenue as you can reach so many more students.
The more I adapt and use video in my business the more efficient everything becomes. Whether that’s releasing a course for my clients and website subscribers or sending one-off videos via email using Loom, it saves time and people find it easier to learn when they are watching what you are doing rather than reading a document.
When both the practitioners (teachers, businesses) and recipients (students) are getting more value for their time, it’s obvious to see the e-learning space will continue to grow.

I’m a huge fan of online tutoring and learning things on the internet. Taking online courses is convenient for many people, including me. As a stay-at-home mom and blogger, my time is minimal, so I need quick wins to save the day and do as much as possible.
Here are several tips that will help you make the most of online learning:
1. Have reliable expectations
To successfully learn online, you need to dedicate a significant amount of your time, consistently attend the program, be concentrated while studying, and fully commit to your learning process, just as you would do for a regular course.
2. Make sure your internet connection is reliable
Technology glitches happen all the time. To avoid mishaps, ensure that you save your work repeatedly and backup regularly so you can access your previous work from your smartphone or tablet if needed. Furthermore, ensure that you have a backup of your online course material and save your instructor’s or trainer’s contact information on your cell phone or in your email.
3. Identify clearly your learning objectives and goals.
To stay on track with your online course, make sure that you always keep in mind what you hope to accomplish by the end of it. The learning objectives and goals of the eLearning course can be an excellent road map during online learning.
4. Ask for help when you need it.
While it may be constructive to look for answers to your online course-related questions independently, hesitating to contact your online instructor when you are stuck may be problematic. If you don’t ask for help when necessary, you may end up falling behind. Build a relationship with your online instructor and avoid misunderstandings by contacting them regularly and informing them who you are and how you could use their help.
5. Stay motivated.
Don’t underestimate the effort needed to commit to your online course fully.

During this pandemic, the online tutoring industry has seen a huge boost. Mostly because most of the people were stuck in their homes, so they looked for ways to learn new things or improve their skills.
I have to admit that I wasn’t a huge fan of offering training online nor doing online tutoring as I’m mostly a people person and get my energy in a group of people. But things changed in the last year. After I got the right set of tools like Zoom, a compelling camera, and a microphone, I could easily offer my team and clients training remotely.
My advice to everyone who wants to offer online teaching online is to get the tech things in order; otherwise, the audience’s experience will not be too nice.

With lockdowns being held all over the world last year, the world of online learning has flourished. Before, classes used only to be held in classrooms, and you had to physically be in attendance. These days, online classes’ growth has diminished those barriers, making online learning an accessible experience for all.
With so many classes and courses to choose from, it can be overwhelming and time-consuming to select the ones you want to take or teach. So, before you start your lessons, it’s essential to consider these tips:

  • Know what subject you want to learn or teach.
  • Map out your goals for the course.
  • Find out which site you want to take the lessons from or provide materials for.

At, we combine the pursuit of interesting and intriguing facts with the innate human desire to rank and list things. That’s because in the informational ocean we are today, it is tough for teenagers and not only to focus on learning.
So my advice for everyone that teaches online is to make sure the lessons are entertaining and are presented in a modern and interactive way. Online teaching should not be difficult. Quite the opposite, actually.

Learning new skills online is ideal because you can do it from the comfort of your home. Most of the time, online learning is significantly cheaper than face-to-face learning too. But beyond these benefits, there are significant cons to learning online. For example, it can be lonely learning all by yourself, and with no face-to-face interaction, you can’t ask questions as they occur to you.
But despite these cons, here are a few tips to help you learn online successfully:
Be Motivated To Learn
It goes without saying that learning any skill is easier if you want to learn it. But even if you want to learn a new skill, your enthusiasm might wear off as the lessons become more challenging. Therefore, having a good reason, and continually reminding yourself why you are learning the skill(s) in the first place, is helpful to stay motivated.
Decide On Your Prefered Method Of Learning
Some people understand new information best if they read it. Some people prefer listening to the audio, while still others like watching videos to learn. Consider your learning style and what you will be learning before you find the perfect course.
Find The Right Instructor
It is always ideal to find someone who complements the way you like to learn. Some instructors are slow and meticulous, some are quick and to the point. Some instructors have annoying voices, and some may use distracting words while explaining things. Be sure to watch/ listen/ read their sample work before you commit to any online course.
Also, consider what you want out of the online course you are taking—do you need in-depth knowledge about a subject, or is that not required for your purposes?
Find The Right Time To Learn
Some people learn a better first thing in the morning after a cup of coffee, some people feel that they absorb later at night. Decide the time and environment that fits your learning style best, and stick to it. Also, make sure you are rested before you start learning. Tired minds absorb less information.
Create A Routine
It is easy to start any online course. Finishing it is a different story. However, creating and sticking to a routine can improve your chances of finishing what you start.
Consciously take the time to figure out a routine that will work best for you. It could be as simple as sitting at the kitchen table from 6-6:30 am, with a steaming cup of coffee to accompany you.
There is, unfortunately, no better way to figure out the perfect routine than through trial and error. Allow yourself a week or so to figure it out.
Take Your Time, Rest When Needed
If the course will take 10 hours to finish, that does not mean you have to do all 10 hours in one day. Also, by taking in too much information on any given day, you run the risk of not retaining the things you have learned.
Rest when you feel yourself getting tired, you’re unable to pay attention, or you’re getting distracted. There is no sense in cramming, and there is certainly no sense in trying to learn something without retaining it.
Allow Yourself Time To Learn
In order for instructors to teach us a skill, they have to be experts at it. To become an expert takes a lot of time. They did not become experts overnight, and you should not expect that for yourself. Allow yourself ample time to become familiar with everything.
Depending on your background, some information will be easy to understand. Some may be harder and you may need more time. It’s okay to go back to reread or rewind certain parts. For example, if your course is through video, you might prefer watching a lesson once, then going back and follow along.
Take Notes
The information you are learning is new to you. It is unlikely you will remember everything after the first review. Therefore, make notes of anything that is important to remember. This saves you from needing to go back to find bits and pieces.
Implement What You’ve Learned
Now that you’ve learned something new, practice as often as possible. Be okay with making mistakes. If you do make mistakes, go back to your notes or review the material again. You are likely to learn more from your errors, than the course material.
With continued practice, it will eventually get easier.
Also, be sure to continually refresh what you learned. Otherwise, you will forget and you may have to relearn the material again.

In my opinion, there are three major things that can make a huge difference in the quality of online teaching:

  1. First of all, you should always research the needs and pains of your audience. Make sure you really know what your listeners or viewers are looking for and what their biggest challenges are before you create the course and prepare the content.
  2. Secondly, ask for feedback on a regular basis. Make sure that your listeners/viewers have an opportunity to leave their feedback for you. That will help you constantly improve your content and your online teaching skills.
  3. Last but not least, take care of the technical side. No matter how awesome your content is, nobody will be able to appreciate it if your mic doesn’t work properly or the Internet connection keeps failing.

Focus on these 3 components and you’ll be able to make a really good impression while tutoring online.

When you are teaching online, it’s really important to simplify everything. The peoples that are looking for your lessons want to learn, but simply and easily. When I write a blog post to explain something online, I always do my best to make it simple for the readers with examples, that way, I am sure this is easy for the reader to understand.
I also think that having a community is important. Having a strong presence on Facebook permitted me to stay closer to my readers and knows exactly what they wanted. By doing that, I can focus on creating content on what peoples want! This helped me a lot to stay engaged and keep my readers loyal to my content.

The key to learning new skills online is understanding the bigger picture or the context of the topic you are learning about. For example, you might be tempted to jump in and learn email marketing for your business, if you haven’t done enough market research, chosen your ideal customer or figured out your offer — actually applying what you’ve learned successfully will be very difficult.
Take a step back to understand exactly what problem you’re trying to solve, then take an overview course — many of them are free. Once you’ve done that, you can choose more specific courses or programs.
The key to teaching anything online is to teach what your customers want to learn. Instead of taking months to develop a course or program, create a landing page that outlines what your audience will learn and launch THAT.
If people sign up, then cover your outline in the introduction to the course, then collect feedback from your audience on what they want to learn. Then develop that content and present it live. Make sure to record everything and you’ll have a course that your customers want.

On MarketingWithJoy, I teach marketing online to people worldwide, so I could say I know a thing or two about tutoring online.
In my opinion, the most important thing when you teach online is to connect with your audience and make sure you have their attention. I don’t say you have to watch everyone closely if they are focused or scroll through their Instagram feed but captivate them. I do this by dropping a joke or two once in a while. Also, offering plenty of practical examples from real life helps and asking questions.

When I just started my trip in the digital marketing industry, everything looked so complicated. But the key to success is permanent learning and the right mindset.
How do gain new skills and knowledge online? Find the most qualified resources of information in your industry, people who are experts and have a dip into the knowledge. And then practice, practice, and again practice! Making mistakes isn’t bad – take your time to develop the skills.

Online learning has never been easier these days. There are a lot of free online courses you can register for and start right away. You can learn new skills like foreign languages, programming, writing, and even painting.
Studying without a physical teacher needs some discipline. Otherwise, you’ll end up registering for a bunch of online learning without actually attending the class.
However, I have some tips for you to succeed in online education:

  • Know your learning purpose
  • Learn, practice, and repeat
  • Teach what you learn
  • Don’t forget to take a break

The biggest problem you have when teaching digitally is not being able to get instant feedback. You can’t tell whether your students have fully understood what you are trying to teach them.
The best way to solve this problem is to use quizzes after each section. Not basic quizzes like 2+2=? but more like ?+?=4 so you can test the practical application of what they have learned.

Before I get into the fine details of what I find to be the most helpful processes of going about acquiring or transferring a skillset it’s a bit more appropriate to learn very quickly about myself. I’ve run a Social Media Marketing business specializing in SEO (Search Engine Optimization) since late 2016 and have generated multi million dollar results for my clients. During this time period, I’ve managed to rank most of the “most difficult keywords” online- like Loan Keywords, and even Bitcoin in 2 countries!
But I was only able to do this by seeking out expert advice.
In a nutshell, what I did was find people that I could easily verify to have results for themselves AND their clients first. Then I just copied everything they were doing, while finding other experts and taking pieces of what they were doing to make a “more complete” system. The end result is an extremely well-rounded process.
During my time as a student, I was also implementing- first on myself, then on my clients; meaning that once I was able to get a proof of concept on my own website’s campaign- I would simply repeat it over again on a client- just simple rinse and repeat. I think what really made this stick for me, was after I learned something new I would either write it down or consult with someone else in the field- and that’s the advice I would give to anyone willing to learn. Once you learn something, discuss your idea with others and see if it matches their experience as well.
I’ve taught SEO to a couple dozen people mostly friends, and I think what really matters when it comes down to teaching is crystal clear communication. You have to know the other person’s concern better than they even do- otherwise, you will fail as a teacher.
A way to help you with that right away is to actually write down your own SOP (standard operating procedure) straight away. If you have a system in place that you would feel comfortable giving to someone else, they can read it and understand it- implement it AND get the same results you yourself are capable of, then you ultimately built a “business in a box” or something you can sell/teach to other people.

In this period in which many countries are under lockdowns or have issued restrictions, you can focus on learning a new skill, or if you have something that you are really good at, you could create a course to teach others.
For teaching and learning online, the best content is video. People need to listen and see how to do something, to see how to put in practice the knowledge they are studying.
So, you should create a video course in which you explain what you want to teach, how to do it, and you could also create an eBook or even a simple pdf for people that like to read. Depending on the complexity of the thing you want to teach, and the price that you are asking for the course, you can also include a few hours of coaching in which you can answer questions.
You should create a Facebook group for your students in which they can interact with each other and share information.

Learning a new skill online is a 3-step process.
The first step is to learn how to learn.
We all know how to learn because we went through the school of life and also regular schooling.
But how many of us have taken a course where they learned how to learn things effectively?
Very few.
This is an optional step, but I highly recommend it as it’ll make the learning process of any skill 3x easier and faster.
The second step is to start taking the course and absorbing as much information as you can.
While gathering and having a lot of knowledge can’t replace the motor skills of actually doing it, you need to have it because you must understand what you’re doing and why you’re doing it.
The third step is to put into practice what you learned. Doing X is the only way you’ll actually master it for life.

The first step anyone needs to do before they engage in a learning experience is carefully picking their tools. To succeed, you need to know yourself and choose to do what works best for you. That’s because there are numerous options, including online courses, tutors, YouTube videos, books, blogs, social media specialized groups, mentors, etc.
Aside from that, “online” doesn’t really change much, it’s just how one consumes content. Paper books versus display monitors.
To learn new skills online you need to make sure you really understand what those skills are all about. This is the theoretical part. You need to know all the terms and definitions and be able to explain things/concepts in simple words. Then, all that remains is to put all the knowledge to good use.
You need to get the practice by doing. Spend your time implementing what you just learned and soon enough you’ll notice you’re quite skilled at what you’re doing. But if you really want to become an expert – assume what you learned is wrong and test it! Challenge everything and prove it right or wrong!

I think one of the best ways to learn online is via and Zoom sessions and online learning platforms such as LinkedIn Learning. Services such as Zoom and Skype make it very easy and convenient for people of various skills located anywhere in the world to come together and communicate.
I think remote learning can be very predictive compared to traditional learning if both the teacher and student are fully engaged in active virtual face-to-face video sessions. Learning new ideas and skills from watching YouTube videos is another great way for anyone today to pick up a new skill or two.

Learning new skills online isn’t new. In fact, it might even be easier than ever due to the ever-increasing amount of insight and resources out on the web.
Take digital marketing for instance. I personally didn’t know a single thing about it up until Q4 of 2020. All I did was read up on some notable content producers in the space including, but certainly not limited to, Neil Patel, Hubspot, Ahrefs, and more.
Within 4 months, I was landing features on some of the top publications and blogs in the SaaS, marketing, and e-commerce niches (pretty competitive there, to say the least).
If I had to give one tip to help you learn something new through a screen, it’d be “go ahead and start; don’t waste time waiting to be ‘good enough'”. Heck, I fully endorse the “fake it ’til you make it” culture.

There are so many websites and teachers offering online training today, it’s honestly overwhelming. It can be really easy to get caught up thinking you need to take every training and learn every aspect of a subject before you can jump into the actual implementation of the ideas you’ve learned.
The best advice I’ve received is to use at least 30% of what you already know before pursuing more education on that topic. If you don’t have time to implement what you already know, it’s the wrong time to try and learn more.

The best way to teach any new skill online is through example. If you can personally walk through an example of the new skill that you are trying to teach, your students are going to be much more likely to succeed. You need to do more than just explain in words or through audio…you need to take a step-by-step approach and SHOW them how it’s done.

My aim on is to help people monetize their skills and knowledge.
More people are taking online courses than ever before. The e-learning industry is expected to grow to about $325 billion by 2025.
One of the best ways to do this is by creating an online course or do tutoring online.
Here are the advantages of creating an online course:

  • Video online courses are selling like hotcakes now.
  • You can add more content like quizzes, tests, checklists, etc.
  • You record it once and you can sell it for years to come.

Copywriting is the art of selling through written words. Words have incredible power, so learning how to use them correctly is one of the best skills you can master.
Copywriting is all about speaking the language of your audience. So, it boils down to learning what words and phrases they use. The best places to search for such language include niche-specific forums, Reddit, Amazon, YouTube, and other social media channels where your ideal client hangs out.
Copywriting is also about brevity and simplicity. This means using short and punchy sentences without any fancy or complicated words. If a child in 5th grade can’t understand your copy, your prospect might not either. Use the Hemingway app to determine the grade level of your text.
As with every other thing, to get better at copywriting, you have to practice it often. If you’d like to earn a living with copywriting, I highly recommend writing every single day. But don’t work in a vacuum. Seek feedback from more experienced copywriters. That’s the best way to upgrade your skills.

In 2021, it’s less about what you’re able to learn new skills online, or even where you might learn them.
The question, what is the best way for me to learn this new skill based on my own preferences for learning? What is the most direct path to integrating the learning of this new skill into my daily life? Is it a video? An online ‘micro-course? A podcast or audiobook? What approaches to learning this skill will make the learning sustainable, engaging, and endlessly usable for me in my life?

on The blog.
Anyone that wants to teach new skills online should make sure the information is presented simply so the audience can easily absorb it. Offer as many examples as possible and take questions from the audience. If that’s not possible, you should update the course with questions you previously got from your students.

It is important to recognize that speeches that may have worked well in an in-person environment may not translate well online. To keep your audience engaged, condense session times by 15 or 30 minutes. Attendees are more likely to show up and remain engaged for a shorter, concentrated session.
When you are passionate about a topic, it is easy to get carried away and want to teach as much as you possibly can. It’s important to make sure your presentation first covers what your audience needs to know. By focusing on fundamentals and specific, actionable tips, it is easier for people to absorb the concepts you are trying to convey and the key points you are trying to help them implement.

It’s important to set the proper mood for your audience while working as an online tutor. Your students will feed off your energy and confidence.

As the coronavirus pandemic spreads, there has been an increasing move towards teaching online as schools and universities shut.
Even for experienced practitioners, this situation presents challenges. However, with the right knowledge, you can overcome the hurdles presented by teaching online and embrace its possibilities.
Through online courses, you’ll be given practical steps towards online teaching and student support. You can reflect on your own work, adapt your approaches, and share your stories with a global community of educators who’ll help you to get started and keep going in uncertain times.
Since the online world gives us a great opportunity so, you can learn or teach almost everything like Language, arts, music, and fitness courses can be found alongside lessons on programming and IT, business skills, teaching, productivity, and much more. There are even categories for personal development and lifestyle, which cover life skills and other techniques that aren’t necessarily the kind of thing you’d get in an academic setting.
You can use various platforms like Udemy. The site is less of a unified “platform” and more of a portal or repository where students can access well over 100,000 courses on every topic imaginable.
There’s no one standard format for a Udemy course—the platform allows instructors to design multimedia lectures with audio, video, and text elements, plus readings, quizzes, and other activities.
