Now there's a dilemma - Teaching vs. Tutoring... what would be your choice, and what exactly is the difference? What makes teaching a great profession and what could put one off teaching? The pros and cons of teaching...
In a nutshell, this is the slight difference between them, for your information:
One of the significant differences is the type and level of the qualifications for the jobs. Usually teachers (both in-class and online) must have teaching certification. A bachelor degree is a bare minimum, but most will require a master's in education.
Requirements for online tutoring jobs vary widely. In fact, "online teaching" jobs that don't require a degree or certification jobs are, in all likelihood, actually tutoring jobs.
The payment for these two positions are also different - the teaching job securing a better remuneration. Most tutoring positions are part time and less well paid.
Tutors typically connect with students “face-to-face” via teleconferencing.
Online teachers however, particularly those at the college level, may teach an asynchronous course, meaning that the teacher and the students work at different times and do not meet face to face, but interact via websites, email, discussion boards and assignments.
The world is always in need of educators - at every level, at any time and everywhere worldwide. This is a true and well-known fact, but what is more obscure is how can we achieve a progress not only quantity-wise, but qualitatively? Read more on Highly Effective Teachers.
