There’s a new way to earn as you learn. If you are a student of math or science and have decent communication skills, you can make up to Rs. 17,000 a month e-tutoring kids in America and Europe. Educational Process Outsourcing (EPO) is enabling over 100 Delhi students make handsome dividends from a few hours spent answering queries and clearing doubts. Manya Education Private Limited, an e-tutoring firm, recently began campus recruitment in IIT-Delhi, Delhi University and Jamia Millia Islamia.

Academically strong students from the Sciences stream were selected and trained for a month. The e-tutoring model requires these student-teachers to log on to a chat-based software and answer queries from students in the US and Europe.

For an average four-hour session, they earn between Rs. 12,000 and Rs. 17,000, depending on competency. Varun Thakur, a Chemistry (Honours) student, is back from office in time for classes in Venkateswara College, after four hours spent interacting with American students in grades IX to XII. “E-Tutoring is exciting. I work from 3.30 am to 7.30 am and am back home before classes. The courses in the US are the same as ours. The only difference is the teaching methodology,” says Thakur. Beginning with Math, Physics and Chemistry, Manya Education plans to include social sciences lessons. The teaching fraternity has welcomed the initiative. “E-tutoring is a great option for bright students with a good grasp over their subjects,” said Rihan Khan Suri, placement officer, Jamia Millia Islamia.
