When conducting online tutoring, a teaching platform is used. This is basically an online software that allows files such as worksheets and tests to be uploaded on to a shared screen that is seen by both student and tutor. The shared screen usually comes with tools for editing/ typing/ drawing shapes/ annotating so that both parties can work collaboratively. Many of these teaching platforms also come with integrated video software so you don't need to have Skype on separately. All in all, making the experience a very interactive process.
