    I would say target the kids in middle school. I had one of those "pushy parents" who would do anything for education. I was private tutored since I was around 14 as well as attending school. My parents also brought countless books for me on maths, so yeah I would say its profitable you just gotta target the right people (like anything).

    it would probably help if you had a solid command of the english language yourself...

    you are 99% there, but it is painfully obvious to anyone from the usa. especially for an education niche, it is a huge red flag :rolleyes:

    You should think about how to monetise it. If you are going to sell your video tutorials, I don't think you'll have a much of profit. But if you have pretty much traffic you can earn on adsence, or on affiliate programs, like abebooks, edu-profit, amazon etc.

    Children definitely need video guidance, especially in solving Science problems, maths sums, algebra trigonometry... English grammar, how to prepare for exams, and so on. If you can develop some good videos on our school subjects, CBSE, etc., then you will have a good following among students. There's nothing greater, imho, than helping students learn better. Make the hard topis simple for them and you'll have life's achievement. You can approach many of those giant companies like Infosys etc with your pilot project, and I am sure they will help you monetarily too.

    Education niche is profitable but instead of teaching physices go teaching languages and math both of these field are exploreable like english in china and Math in UK.

    Your idea is good. But think about all the investment you gonna need to hire efficient people and pay them GOOD money. Good ones aint gonna come cheap.

    Education is a field where people spend lot of money specially middle class Chinese and u don't need to spend money every other day once you create good virtual learning centre than u only need to update lessons according to enrollment .

    Personally I'd start a course in which you are already an expert in, therefore you're more likely to invest and reinvest in this online course of yours (should you actually start up).

    If you're trying to target Indian students, you should go for profitable niches like MBA. There are many other profitable niches like nursing, education loans .. but you should be able to write good content for US based universities
