Online Math Tutor

I'm a college student who is having some issues really understanding Calculus II, which is a problem as A) I am a Comp Sci major, and B) I need to take Calc III as well, and an advanced math elective as well. I've not heard good things about the school provided tutors, (IE, one is not too skilled at math, and the other is really smug and poor pedagogically) and while I could get a private tutor to help me, I was wondering if there are any good resources for online math tutors, like there are for online language tutoring over Skype. Does a directory of such tutors exist, has anyone had a good experience doing this (maybe even with names?), and how much can I expect to pay?

I'm not talking about something like Kahn Academy, because while they do make very nice tutorials, they don't seem to cover the content of my college's curriculum that closely. I was hoping for something more like 1:1 tutoring.
If this doesn't exist, I'm perfectly fine with finding someone locally. I was just thinking that between my job and school schedule, online tutoring might be easier to schedule.
