Online tutoring refers to the process of tutoring in an online, networked, or virtual environment where learners and tutors are present virtually. It has gained popularity with the ever-increasing use of internet services worldwide. Increased internet data transfer speed has enabled tutors and learners to engage online simultaneously. Furthermore, the rapid adoption of smartphones is one of the significant factors driving the adoption of online teaching services worldwide as it enables learning to take place regardless of the geographic location. For instance, Varsity Tutors, a U.S.-based education company, offers a mobile application for live tutoring and instructions. It provides an expert’s assistance from anywhere and lets learners manage their tutoring sessions.
Furthermore, schools, universities, and other learning institutes have been encouraged to follow distance education and work remotely with their students amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The adoption of distance learning owing to the outbreak of the pandemic has impacted the industry’s growth favorably. For instance, in March 2020, Varsity Tutors released a free product called Virtual School Day for students and parents. It offers over 20 hours of live online classes across various subjects for students up to the 12th grade. It also has special sessions for each age group. Thus, online tutoring service providers have positively leveraged the pandemic situation as educational institutes have been closed in many states and countries.
The market has benefitted from the onset of analytical applications to customize tutoring services. For instance, content designers leverage analytical tools to develop content tailored to the requirements of learners. Such content development is fulfilled based on individual students’ interests, performances, and subject understanding. For instance, Kaplan, Inc., an American for-profit educational services corporation, provides online customization tools for learners enrolled in test preparation courses. This trend of growing customization in tutoring services is anticipated to trigger the market growth owing to the formative assessment features of these services.
The on-demand tutoring segment dominated the online tutoring services market and accounted for more than 75.01% share of the global revenue in 2019. On-demand tutoring offers a personalized platform, which helps students progress based on their capabilities and pace. Furthermore, on-demand tutoring combined with analytics applications helps tutors and content providers obtain real-time information on the learner’s progress. Thus, the rapidly growing adoption of customized and personalized learning is triggering the on-demand tutoring market’s growth positively.
Structured online tutoring involves real-time interaction between the students and the tutor. The segment is anticipated to register a CAGR of 14.4% over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to the growing prominence of live teaching sessions via videoconferencing. For instance, in July 2020, BYJU'S, an Indian EdTech company, ventured into live virtual teaching. It launched a program to provide personalized after-school tuition classes called BYJU’s Classes.
The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) courses segment dominated the market and accounted for more than 60.0% share of the global revenue in 2019.

For instance, in July 2020, McGraw Hill, an American education company, partnered with TutorMe, LLC, a U.S.-based education services provider, to offer free on-demand tutoring services to college students.
The other courses segment includes tutorials and courses on lifestyle, skill trades, marketing, business, finance, and music. It is anticipated to register a noticeable CAGR over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to the growing prominence of short-term diploma courses in coding and business-related subjects among corporate professionals. For instance, Coursera Inc., an American Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) provider, offers several courses other than STEM and language courses, such as digital marketing, and data science.
The long-term courses segment dominated the market and accounted for more than 70.02% share of the global revenue in 2019. This high share of the segment can be attributed to the fact that long-term courses hold significant value. It enables the learners to gain in-depth knowledge about the reskilling course and deliver higher efficiency. Also, long-term courses have been adopted for continuous developments in learning methods for under-resourced students. For instance, 100tal.com, a Chinese education company, has covered 252 teaching centers in China's Sichuan province. Its project included teaching Mandarin to over 70,000 under-resourced students in 72 schools.
The short-term courses segment is anticipated to register a healthy CAGR of 17.6% over the forecast period. The segment growth can be attributed to the increasing popularity of short-term diploma courses with on-demand tutoring pattern. For instance, Alison, an Ireland-based free online education platform, offers short-term certificate and diploma courses of average duration of 2 to 3 hours and 8 to 10 hours, respectively. It provides a wide variety of course types on multiple subjects with on-demand tutoring type and has over 11 million users worldwide.
North America dominated the market and accounted for over 35.02% share of the global revenue in 2019.
