Online tutoring pays off at home, abroad - The Boston Globe

Online tutoring pays off at home, abroad - The Boston Globe "In the basement of his parents' home in Wellesley, Aashish Sharma is brushing up on high school chemistry, with help from George Mathew, a tutor with a master's degree in the subject.
Mathew works for a US firm, but does his tutoring while seated at a computer in the southern Indian city of Cochin. Thanks to a high-speed Internet link, and software that lets him sketch chemical formulas onto a computer screen, Mathew can give 16-year-old Aashish one-on-one tutoring from 8,000 miles and half a day away."
