The right hand of all teachers are online tutors, experts in the fields covered by their courses, who monitor students seven day a week, motivate them, provide feedback, solve professional problems that students encounter during their studies, direct them through the course and answer their questions every day of the week. Online tutors provide support to both the teacher and students.
