The research aims to identify the attitudes and opinions of tutees and tutors at King Saud University towards using cross-age online tutoring. An electronic survey and interviews were used to collect the data required for this study. A descriptive analysis was used as a research methodology. Thirty participants in this research were asked to complete a five-point Likert scale survey, which consists of 28 items, classified in three main categories; and two items as probe statements. Also, 17 participants in this research were asked to answer the interview open-ended questions. The validity and reliability of the survey were ensured. Statistical treatments, such as percentages, means, frequencies and analysis of the ANOVA (analysis of variance) variance were also included. The results reflected the positive attitudes of the tutees and tutors towards using cross-age online tutoring. Moreover, results showed no difference in their attitudes towards using the system among the tutees in terms of academic levels or specializations. (Contains 9 tables.)
