Ahmedabad, the largest city in Gujarat, was voted by the Times of India in 2012 as the best city to live in. Over the years, the city has seen growth not only in the economic and industrial sector but also in its growing literacy. In just over a decade since Ahmedabad’s average literacy (as taken from the Census of 2011) rose from 79.50% (in 2001) to 85.31%.

Though the average literacy rate of Ahmedabad is, as of now, not the best in the country yet given its economic prosperity, a large number of people will consequently expect and demand a further emphasis on education.

Against this backdrop, and given the rise of online technology in the country of late, the scope for online tutor jobs shines out as a brilliant advance in teaching career ambition in Ahmedabad for many good reasons.

A student searching for an online tutor may still seem a bit unconventional and somewhat doubtful to many in India but, rest assured, we will try to see how effective the online platform is for job seekers of teaching in Ahmedabad.

Why Opt For A Career In Tutorship

In India, where although there are innumerable schools, colleges, universities and coaching centres, yet the demanded level of education is not often met with. To help uplift this scenario, an aspiring tutor shows up as an ideal for many.

With the cult of private or home tutorship growing more and more not just in Ahmedabad but throughout the country, it is high time for tutors to help themselves and the students as well by providing the latter quality education in a well-suited fee or salary. Teaching, after all, is not just a respectable profession but with the right approach and the opportunities, it can help establish oneself in a successful career even from an economic perspective.

Apart from this, there are numerous other factors which cater to the demand for tutors looking for teaching jobs.

In schools and colleges, it is often the case that the ratio of teachers to students is highly uneven. In Ahmedabad itself, the pupil-teacher ratio is dismal. This is generally not helpful to students who find the subject a bit too difficult to grasp when compared to other classmates. They may hesitate to ask the teacher in a full classroom fearing the sense of sounding stupid to other classmates.

Home opportunity, on the other hand, will enable these students to freely ask any question on the subject they are being taught without the fear of meeting with embarrassment.

Your qualification will also enable you to work for any contact centre which hires a person of your qualification for a diverse range of work such as a freelance writer, proofreader, transcriptionist or for booking keeping or data entry jobs.

Being qualified enough and applying for a teaching job isn’t sufficient in themselves. An aspiring tutor has to keep in mind a number of factors before pursuing to teach a student.

Teacher-Student Interaction

Teaching is never a one-way process. How well a teacher interacts with a student and how well a student responds to the teacher are things of utmost importance.

This eventually is going to shape the tutor’s review profile to help him gain more students or even teach at an improved fee.
