Online Tutoring Services Market Growth & Trends

The rapid adoption of smartphones is one of the significant factors driving the adoption of online teaching services worldwide as it enables learning to take place regardless of geographic location. For instance, in January 2022, MyCaptain, an online mentorship platform, raised USD 3 million in a new round of funding headed by Ankur Capital. The funds raised will be used to expand the company’s course offerings, recruit more users, and increase its team with an eye toward expansion.

Furthermore, schools, universities, and other learning institutes have been encouraged to follow distance education and work remotely with their students amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The adoption of distance learning owing to the outbreak of the pandemic has impacted the industry’s growth favourably. For instance, in January 2023Waterbury Public Schools, a school district based in Waterbury, Connecticut, partnered with Varsity Tutors, a Nerdy Inc. company.

The acquisition aims to deliver each district’s students free 24/7 live-chat academic support and essay review services. Thus, online tutoring service providers have positively leveraged the pandemic situation as educational institutes have been closed in many states and countries. For instance, in November 2021, Unacademy, an Indian multinational learning platform, acquired Swiflearn, an e-learning platform that provides live virtual tuitions for school children for an undisclosed fee. The company’s acquisition is part of a larger plan to strengthen its position in the K-12 market and expand its product offerings.

The market has benefitted from the onset of analytical applications to customize tutoring services. For instance, in August 2021, Acellus Corporation, an online school platform for K-12 students, offered its online program for independent study to the Wilsona district in California, which would provide personalized learning according to the requirement of the learners.

For another instance, in February 2022, Paper, an online tutoring company, raised USD 270 million in a Series D fundraising round, owing to increased demand for academic intervention in American schools. According to the business, the new funding will be used to partner with a growing number of innovative educational systems to level the playing field for all students. This trend of growing customization in tutoring services is anticipated to trigger market growth owing to the formative assessment features of these services.
