Online tutees can try an online tutor and if not totally satisfied with his/her teaching style, can try a different person without any obligation. Tutees seem to feel greater level of obligation to continue their lessons with face to face tutors more than online tutors even if they are not totally satisfied with their progress.
Tutees can save all or part of their lessons as an images or pdf files for future reference and revision. This will reduce the time they need to take handwritten notes and perhaps change them to digital formats for easier storage and accessibility.
Disadvantages of online tuition
To hold a satisfactory online lesson, the internet bandwidth and connection strength has to be at least moderate. A computer or a tablet with audio and video is also required. Hence if the internet strength drops off or disrupted, online lessons will have to be abandoned. If there is an issue with either the tutees's or tutors's hardware, the lessons will be disrupted.
