This paper describes a Web-based tutoring system using pen-paper devices, which enables a student living in the provinces to take remote lessons from a competent teacher working in large cities with the feeling that the student takes personal lessons form the teacher sitting beside the student. In addition to the video chat between the student and the teacher, they communicate with real-time handwriting using pen-paper devices, so that they can communicate by speech and by handwriting which can easily express figures, formulas, and so on rather than being restricted and bothered by using keyboards. One of the largest prep schools has been using this system for more than a year.
