New TutorNet offers an Expert Showcase and MoneySpinner

The amiable Martin Browne has set up TutorNet to offer online learning via video conferencing on Skype or ooVoo.

I think it's a great showcase for those with expertise to share and showcase, with the added benefit of generating an extra income stream.



Visit TutorNet


Tutors offer hour-long sessions in subjects they are used to teaching so people can easily top up their knowledge, get help with a problem or learn/improve a skill. Payment for a tutorial is made in advance to TutorNet through PayPal.

It's free to sign up as a member, then you can opt to become a tutor or learner, join groups based on subject matter and generally engage.

The site is based on Ning and has the usual social media tools such as adding friends, sharing with friends and other social media tools, posting on walls, commenting and forums.

There are some class acts already signed up.

And for those who are needing to polish up their presentation skills before handling online tutoring, by all means find courses and read books on the techniques. But do join Toastmasters (toastmasters.org) to get lots of practice to embed the skills - it's a not-for-profit and brilliant value for money imo.
