Online tutoring

A comment from partner in crime Nanette Miner, who saw on a recent Today show "a man in India who is tutoring a 15 year old CA girl in Geometry. The young lady's mother found him by conducting a web search. The camera showed a view of their computers, over their shoulders (both the teen and the tutor) and guess what they were using? WebEx! The tutor was using the whiteboard feature to write equations and explain them to the teen. Too cool, don't you think?"
