We offer our current students the option to supplement in-person tutoring with online tutoring while they are traveling. It is a great option regardless of where you are located in the world.
Moreover, online tutoring works well for all subjects. Some of the subjects we have successfully taught via online methods include SAT, ACT, English, history, physics, chemistry, and math.
We were contacted by the mother of an 11th grader to help with both SAT and ACT test prep. Though we had several tutors who could meet in-person, we determined that one of our tutors who had moved to Boston would be the perfect fit, and suggested online tutoring. The mother was initially skeptical, but she agreed to try it. Things worked out great:
“I wanted to tell you that D really loved working with Matt through Skype. As you may recall, I was skeptical, but the Skype sessions really worked out well, and I did not have to drive her anywhere!
She got a 35 on the ACT, and came out of the SATs last weekend feeling great about it.”
Everything is extremely easy to set up and all the software/technology is free. It’s almost like the tutor is sitting right across the table from you! The tools include:
Skype audio and video are used to hear and see each other. All you need is a webcam and a microphone, which are standard these days on most computers. The software (Skype) is free and simple to install.
Online whiteboards allow the tutor and student to interact with each other real-time on the screen. For example, the tutor can draw an example math problem on the screen, and the tutor and student can both work through it together as if they were sitting next to each other.
We recruit only the best and have a rigorous selection process. This means our private tutors are not just intelligent - they're also great teachers who are able to relate to your child.Learn more.
We approach tutoring differently. Through our company philosophy and customized matching process, we are able to more effectively deliver results.
We have an impressive history of proven success and a guarantee unlike any other in the business: If you're unsatisfied with any session, you simply don't pay.Learn more.
