Against the background of the pandemic of the new coronavirus infection in Russia, the demand for tutors and nannies has grown significantly, and a new direction of services has appeared - online nannies.

This is reported by RBC, referring to the study of Avito.

According to analysts, the growing demand for individual teachers, trainers and kindergartens is associated with long vacations. Also, many parents doubt the effectiveness of distance education, and therefore "hedge" themselves by hiring tutors for their children. And this is not only about specialized subjects. Over the year, the demand for the service of music tutors has grown by 52%, and by 56% in the last quarter alone.

Also, trying to compensate for a sedentary lifestyle during quarantine, the Russians are hiring sports coaches. In this category, demand grew 137% in the last quarter.

The demand for services for preschoolers has also grown - by 50%, for example, for kindergartens. In the third quarter, when the holiday season ended, the popularity of kindergartens especially increased - by 106%.

In the same third quarter, demand for babysitting services grew by 88%. Moreover, it is noted that the services of auto-nuns who take children from school or kindergarten are 30% more expensive than services of nannies conducting educational activities.

Moreover, a new direction has appeared - online nannies. They help distract the child for one to two hours while the parents are busy. During quarantine, such specialists were especially in demand.

However, the supply in the segment of work with children still exceeds demand. In September, it was already reported that offers from tutors increased by 31% compared to the same months last year.

Moreover, tutors were among the carriers of professions who were predicted to fight for jobs in the context of the development of online services, especially after the coronavirus pandemic.
