Help in All Subjects at All Hours from Qualified Tutors
Students are seeking help with school assignments and homework not just after school, but all day and sometimes deep into the evening hours. After-school activities keep many students busy right through dinner time. It's estimated that over 2 million students are now being homeschooled and more and more children are also choosing K-12 virtual school programs. These students need flexible options to get help on their time schedule. Learning centers, face-to-face tutors and other online tutoring options are still tied to a more traditional model that requires families to schedule appointments during after-school hours. At Tutor.com, students always have access to the one-to-one help they need from screened, qualified tutors in math, science, social studies and English.
"Since we launched our on demand consumer service last year, parents and students have been asking us to expand our hours to better serve their needs for access to tutors around the clock—not just after school," said George Cigale, founder and CEO of Tutor.com. "We're excited that our technology systems and growing network of professional tutors allows us to offer 24/7 access for all students."
Over 2,200 tutors are available to work with students on homework assignments, study skills, exam preparation, writing skills and much more. A recent study conducted by an independent research firm found that Tutor.com helped students perform better in algebra I, algebra II and geometry during post-tests. The study also found that parents attributed an increase in their child's confidence and an improvement in their grades to using Tutor.com.
Tutor.com completed over 840,000 one-to-one tutoring sessions in 2007 and expects to do well over one million sessions in 2008 as more students take advantage of tutoring around the clock.
