The Top 4 Advantages of Online Learning

Online learning is the greatest revolution in education today.  Revolutions are disruptive. Revolutions turn society upside down! That’s what Eurekly, your live learning specialist, is about: changing lives through education in a way that is engaging and fun.

The Top 4 Advantages of Online Learning:

1. Learn Whatever you want.

At a traditional brick and mortar school, students are limited by current class offerings and subject matter. Online, the world of education is your oyster. At Eurekly, if we don’t offer the subject you are interested in, we will find you the perfect teacher that will teach you your desired subject within a week.

2. Learn Whenever you want.

You get to decide what time class starts. There is no getting up early if you dread morning study. There is no sitting in lecture halls for hours and hours in an uncomfortable chair. You do not have to waste time or money driving or taking public transport to get to class. Class comes to you, at your convenience. Any time, any day, night or day. And class time can be a 10-minute refresher or a few hours deep dive. The choice is yours.

3. Learn at your own speed.

One of the biggest benefits of online learning is that you get to set your own pace. If you decide to do a deep dive into French before a trip to the South of France, you can line up as many lessons as your heart desires. Or if work gets super busy, you can check in with your tutor at your convenience. Even in your regular sessions, our teachers will pace your lessons to your unique level of retention and progress. Live learning at Eurekly is customized for your individual need.

There are no deadlines or mandatory tests that need to be completed to move on in a subject matter. There is no getting left behind when you don’t understand something. The curriculum is tailored to your needs exclusively. You get to decide with your teacher the pace that works best for you and the milestones you want to reach.

  1. Receive 100% of the Teachers Focus.

One of the best parts of online learning at Eurekly is you don’t have to share. Your teacher, during your session, is 100% there for you exclusively. There is no competing to get attention, no disruptions from other students. Your live learning lesson is for your benefit alone. You teacher is looking you in the eye and answering every one of your questions until you grasp the subject matter. Yup, that’s right, class is 100% about you and what you want to get out of it. There is no faster, more thorough way to learn a new subject than with that kind of attention and focus. Imagine the places you can grow!

5 Tips To Become A Successful, Well-Paid Online Tutor

Top online tutors on Eurekly can make up to $10,000- $15,000 dollars a month and you can too! Yup, you read that correctly! You can make more money as an online teacher than you did in the classroom (or in your other jobs) and on top of that, you get to be your own boss and have ultimate flexibility. You decide your hours and what and where you teach. So if you want to teach watching the sun come up in Thailand, you can. Sound too good to be true? Well, it is not, but you have to take real action and focus if you want to be top tier.  Here are 5 concrete tips to set you on the road to online teaching success:

Create an engaging profile.

The first thing a prospective student will notice about your profile is your picture. Make sure it is a good one. That means do not upload pictures sideways or post dark, blurry and confusing images. Choose a photograph that makes you look friendly and approachable and ideally professional looking ie: not pictures from your Tinder profile!

Secondly, write an honest and interesting bio. Keep it real and informative. It shouldn’t be overly formal like a resume but rather a personal way to introduce yourself to prospective students. Don’t be afraid to share your unique experiences. If you struggled as a kid because you were dyslexic, mention it. Go on and explain how that experience turned you into a super passionate and empathetic tutor for dyslexic children.

Make sure to list all your credentials and include positive experiences with former students. Add a couple of personal tidbits about yourself. You want to make yourself seem relatable. In the virtual world, students have the choice to choose their teachers, so look at yourself and your bio through the eyes of a prospective student. Would you want to spend time every week with the person in the profile you just created?

Make Yourself Available.

When a student reaches out to you, respond! The faster the better. In the digital world, on-demand contact pays off. And once you do make contact, don’t be afraid to ask questions and to find out exactly what the student is looking for in a tutor and lessons plan. Every conversation with a student is a learning experience that offers you an opportunity to refine how your present yourself and your skills. Connecting with students before your first lesson is the best way to make sure that first lesson is a great one!

  1. Prepare, Prepare, Prepare.

Before you even have your first online student you must decide what you are teaching and with what tools. It is important to lay the foundation for your online classes. Just like in the classroom, a teacher needs to prepare for lessons.


Connect with your student before the lesson and ask them a few questions so you know what their goals are and what level to begin teaching. Collecting information from students in advance will help you prepare appropriate questions and materials. It will also show students that you’re interested in what they have to say, which will help spur a lively discussion.

Tell students what to expect.  Inform them of topics or questions the lesson might cover, how they should prepare, and what they might be expected to do. Be as concrete and specific as possible. When students have time to prepare, they are often more invested in the discussion and willing to participate.

4. Be Passionate and Engaging

Online learners are active learners! They have determined that sitting in the back of a classroom listening to a teacher lecture is not the best way for them to reach their learning goals. Your online student has decided instead to invest in a teacher (You) that they can personally connect with, a mentor of sorts. So do your best to connect with them in a meaningful and engaging manner. Don’t be afraid to joke and laugh with them.  Ask lots of questions and work to create a dialogue rather than a lecture. Finally, make sure that each lesson has a clear takeaway.

Remember: You are their guide on their learning journey, not an instructor shouting out next steps.

  1. Get Feedback & Great Reviews!

Don’t be afraid to ask your students for their honest feedback. Any criticism should be accepted with appreciation. They are giving you information that you can use to become an even better teacher.  Make sure to let your students know if they give negative feedback or are dissatisfied with a lesson to bring it up with you first. You want to make sure that you address all their concerns before they rate their experience publically.

Ask all your students for a testimonial and to evaluate their experience with you and your lessons. But remember, people are busy so don’t take it personally if not all your students follow through. Consider instead, sending the student a reminder to write a review and let them know how much you appreciate them taking the time to do so.

If you follow these specific tips you can build a highly lucrative and rewarding student base from scratch in 1-2 years solely on Eurekly. Remember, it’s karma, we are all in this together. When we help others to be successful, our success multiplies as well!

Top 5 Advantages Of Online Learning

1. Availability

Through Eurkely you can learn anything, anywhere as long as you have an internet connection. Geography, time zones, and commuting is never a limitation. We bring a worldwide range of skilled tutors right to your doorstep.

2. Convenience

Imagine studying calculus in your pj’s? How about practicing some chess moves with your online tutor at 2 am because you are a night owl. How about keeping up with those Spanish classes while you are traveling on business? At Eurkely you decide when and where to study online. And because you don’t have to travel, you save the most precious thing of all: your time! What could be more convenient than that?

3. Selection

Rather than praying to get lucky enough to find a single tutor who meets your criteria, when searching our online database of tutors you will have a greater selection to choose from, which allows you to be discriminating. At Eurekely, we have the best and most dedicated tutors because we have built the friendliest platform to support them. You can meet and interview as many tutors as you like until you find the right one.

4. Value

The corollary of selection is value. Being able to discriminate means that tutors have to rely on merit rather than scarcity to win your business, and you don’t have to settle for second (or third) rate. It puts you in the driver’s seat. And when a great tutor doesn’t need to travel to a session, he or she is often much more likely to charge less per hour.

5. Technology

Often people who haven’t experienced online tutoring fear that the technology will be a hindrance, but in many ways, it is an advantage. When sessions are online they are easily recorded for future reference. A good tutor will make use of technology for illustrative purposes by using photos, animations, drawings, and diagrams. It is easier to communicate without a room full of people or other distractions and to meet when and where is most convenient.
