What do I need to have before I can start online tutoring?

The list of requirements for online tutoring isn’t as long or as complicated as you might think. Let’s have a look at the essential requirements, and then the additional items that are nice to have…


  • an internet connection (either Wi-Fi or mobile data)
  • a device with a large screen, such as a computer, laptop or tablet


  • a second device with a built-in camera, such as a mobile phone (if your large screen device doesn’t already a camera)

That’s it!

If you’re not sure whether the devices you have are suitable, or whether your internet connection is fast enough, we’re happy to schedule a free online tutoring demo with you. We’ll carry out some checks, and if necessary, recommend some purchases or upgrades you can make to meet all the requirements for seamless online tutoring.
