Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

A regular tutor can cost anywhere between $25 to $100 an hour.

But online tutors in countries such as India are charging as little as US$2.50 an hour, (AUD$3.34) meaning cash-strapped Australian families can also afford to privately educate their children.

This is how much American mother Denise Robison pays per hour for her daughter’s online Indian tutor.

“It’s made the biggest difference. My daughter is literally at the top of every single one of her classes and she has never done that before,” said Ms Robison.

Her 13-year-old daughter, Taylor, is one of 1,100 Americans enrolled in Bangalore-based TutorVista, which launched last November with a staff of 150 “e-tutors” mostly in India with a fee of $100 a month for unlimited hours.
