As technology application has adopted to provide academic support ubiquitously, the presence of e-tutoring has grown for decreasing educational budgets and reducing the digital divide. However, many e-tutoring studies have focused on students’ academic achievement rather than service learning competencies. The purpose of this study is to develop a student-perceived and literature-based instrument on online tutoring for exploring college students’ acquisition of competencies after their serving online tutoring for rural primary students. This study suggests an exploratory study can be conducted for investigating in-depth competencies to better understand tutor’s and tutee’s lifelong learning gains beyond strictly quantifiable academic achievement after their e-tutoring experiences.
