Tutor.com Introduces New Learning Suite to better Serve Adults
Adults will have their own Learning Center including Job Search, GED Prep, Citizenship Help and More
NEW YORK, March 6, 2009 – Tutor.com is launching a new Tutor.com Learning Suite available to public libraries summer 2009. After almost a decade of serving K-12, college students and adults with one-to-one, online tutoring and homework help services, Tutor.com is expanding their programs to help the hundreds of thousands of American adults who find themselves searching for jobs and writing resumes during this difficult economic time.
Tutor.com Adult Learning Center
The Tutor.com Adult Learning Center will include one-to-one tutoring designed for adults who are conducting a job search and need help with resume strategies as well as writing a resume or polishing a cover letter. Our new and unique proofreading service, ProofPoint™ allows adults to have their writing reviewed in real-time with a tutor rather than wait a day or longer for a marked copy to be returned via email. Adults may also access the new SkillsCenter™ Resource Library 24/7 to find vetted resources that provide resume guidelines, job search guidance and networking tips including how to use online resources and social media.
Beyond job search, the Adult Learning Center will help students preparing for the GED or going back to school with one-to-one assistance in math, science, social studies and English. Adults getting ready for the Citizenship test may connect to a social studies or English tutor to prepare for that test or use resources from the SkillsCenter to find practice exams, how to register for the test and more.
“Libraries are serving more customers than ever before and are truly a lifeline for the thousands of adults who are searching for employment, education assistance and ways to improve their and their families’ lives,” said George Cigale, founder and CEO of Tutor.com. “Tutor.com is pleased to introduce our new suite to help libraries serve their communities with more services during this critical time.”
Tutor.com Student Learning Center and College Learning Center
Tutor.com will also launch a newly designed Student Learning Center and College Learning Center which features our award-winning one-to-one, online and on-demand tutoring and homework help service; ProofPoint for real-time writing assistance; and, the SkillsCenter with thousands of vetted resources that are available 24/7 and searchable by keyword or subject. The resources are for students who may choose to work independently and include step-by-step tutorials, practice exams, study tips and much more.
Powering this suite are exciting new technologies delivered in an interactive, online classroom built using Microsoft® Silverlight™ technology and designed for learning with personalized avatars, a large collection of drag and drop tools for math and science sessions and the ability to share documents and browse web resources in real-time with a tutor.
