The increase in the use of computers and the latest technology has opened new doors for the education sector long before the pandemic, but the recent crises greatly contributed to an instant paradigm shift.
Today, almost everything is done online using apps and websites, for instance, retail shopping, ordering groceries, booking of tickets, government services, and even the consultation of the doctor, etc. Though online education is popular mainly in the private sector, i.e. schools and colleges, the pandemic created opportunities that can benefit a greater population including students of public institutions.
Innovations in the education sector now are ten times substantial than a few years ago. The recent innovation in online education and distance learning is more focused on skill based, school based, or subject based tutoring. So whether you are a school teacher, and Agricultural Sciences teacher in a university, or Space Sciences teacher in a high tech facility, there are more opportunities for you than you can think of.
Currently, only big cities are reaping the benefits, but to be accessible to the common man, all it needs is affordable high speed internet, and the services can be equally beneficial for the remote areas.

Private Tutoring Online
If you always wanted to open a tuition center of your own and budget restrained you from achieving your goal. Now you can do it without a physical setup. You won’t even need a website or any investment in technology, because there are already so many ready made resources like Zoom Meetings, Wix websites etc.
Skills Based Coaching
If you are a guru in your field and can teach some skills, you don’t really need to approach universities and colleges for approval. Rather, create your own course and sell it through platforms like Udemy, Coursera, etc.
Performing Arts Coaching
Performing Arts has been one of the most important yet not much appraised niches before the pandemic, and the crises taught us the importance of food for the soul. If you know your trade well, why not start online music, dance, and drama lessons, just like private online tutoring.
Many teachers may not enjoy teaching online much, but this doesn’t mean there’s no opportunity for them. They can still cash their talents by selling teaching materials like notes, presentations, ebooks etc.

If you are someone who is trying to make a big change, or is a former teacher or retired, and is wishing to do a job outside the traditional classroom then there are many opportunities brought up by online tutoring that might fit the bill. The above mentioned areas are a few of the opportunities, but the list is not limited to these. You can even mix and match to create your very own unique selling point.
