No child left behind Act , the recent law passed by the American government in the year 2002, has been a propelling force towards the direction of boosting online tutoring. According to this law the schools (public as well as private), which failed to provide quality education to the teenagers, are required to hire private tutors to enhance the student s performance. Since then the schools that were lagging behind have tightened their belts. Due to this many American families have started enrolling their kids to these online tutoring centers rather than sending them to private tutors. The private tutors or tutorial companies in US charged $ 50 to $ 100 per hour and that helped a lot in boosting the business for these online tutorials companies as they charge as low as $ 15 per hour!

This is the latest trend in education industry in which tutors from India provide help to American teenagers to help them to understand and grasp the concepts of their respective subjects with ease. These online tutorial companies provide their customers with high quality content and that too at reduced costs!

The tutors working with these companies have completed their Masters or postgraduate degrees and all of them undergo exhaustive training for several weeks on how to speak with a low pitch American accent or how to understand American slang. All tutors working under these online tutoring companies have to go through a rigorous interview and have to pass through a certified test.

Many Indian based companies like TransWebTutors (, BrainFuse, TransTutors and Tutor vista have come up with some very exciting offers. They are providing preparation for standardized tests like TOEFL, SAT, GRE, GMAT etc. Apart from this TransWebTutors (, a New Delhi based company is offering an unlimited online tutoring for $ 99 per month. Isn t that mind blowing? These online tutorial companies have got a pool of teachers specialized in subjects like Mathematics, Science, English etc.

Online Tutoring industry has risen up very much and is growing day by day. Online tutoring is a key to success for American teenagers and serve as a tremendous weapon for their growth and success in the coming future. It’s the outsourcing of education. Just like manufacturing or service jobs, borders no longer limit the task of teaching America s youth!
