Online Accounting Tutoring - Articles Surfing

Accounting is one of the most intimidating subjects around and a lot of people steer clear of it. Anytime you mention debits and credits or balance sheets to someone, their eyes seem to glaze over. Professionals in the field of Accounting are perceived as a bean-counting, calculator pushing, group of people. In college, business students dread taking introduction to Accounting unless they are prospective accounting majors. The truth is, it's not all that bad once you get the understanding of it. Honestly, Accounting is an acquired taste. You either like it or you don't.

High school accounting students and undergraduate business students who are not accounting majors, tend to find Accounting very frustrating. That could be due to the fact that they can't get the help they need when they need it. If you have a few accounting geniuses in the class, you may get them to help you if they aren't too involved in their own lives. The professors aren't always immediately available either. There have been times when I've been up studying late and had questions in the middle of the night. You can't just pick up the phone and call one of your classmates in the middle of the night; that wouldn't be very polite. But since practically a majority of students use the internet now whether to do homework or just to pass the time away, it has become a must-have.

The benefits of using online tutoring with Accounting or any subject are:

1. Tutors are generally available around the clock. Some tutoring companies may only be available when students are more likely to be studying. That can be from early afternoon to 1 in the morning.

2. There may be less intimidation on the part of the student. Some people are very uncomfortable with face-to-face interaction. Also, it can raise confidence when the student just 'can't get it'.

3. Teachers may be in class or in bed when the student needs help the most. It also cuts down on the need for office hours. Tutors are typically only an email away.

4. Tutors aren't merely in a hurry because they have somewhere else they need to be. The job of the tutor is to make sure that your needs are met and that you get all the information that you need.

Some people may not prefer tutors because of the extra costs. Online tutoring is generally cheaper than meeting with a private tutor in person. Cost for a private in-person tutor can range from an average of $15-$25 per hour. Online tutors are priced a little differently; they may charge by the question or by the hour. Tutors come in handy for those who work during the day and then go to school at night. By the time they get home at night, teachers aren't always readily available. Hence, the student prefers to just pay the extra money to get what they need. Frankly, privately tutored students generally end up doing better because they have a chance to really learn the material and to increase their confidence when it's time to take the exam.

Online tutoring is still a growing resource but it's highly valuable in this information age. Not everyone can just go to the nearest coffee shop or to a learning center to meet a tutor. This is particularly true for moms and dads who are attending college online but need to stay home with the children. All in all, it's a wonderful asset.
