Tutor.com Launches New Online Tutoring and Career Packages for Libraries

Libraries Serving Small to Medium Populations can Choose from Three New Turnkey Packages

BOSTON – January 15, 2010 – Tutor.com (www.tutor.com), the leading online tutoring and career service with over 5 million tutoring sessions served, announced today at the ALA 2010 Midwinter Meeting new online tutoring and career packages created specifically for libraries serving small to medium populations. These turnkey packages make it easy and affordable for libraries to bring one-to-one tutoring and career assistance to their communities without straining libraries’ limited staff or budgets. Tutor.com will showcase the new packages at booth 1447 and offer special discounts for first-time customers.

Libraries can choose from the Tutor.com Student Center for kindergarten – college students, the Tutor.com Career Center for job seekers and adult learners training for a new career, or the Tutor.com Learning Suite which includes both centers and serves everyone in the community. Whether a library has an immediate need to help an influx of job seekers with resumes and interview preparation, or a long-term commitment to serving the educational needs of local students, Tutor.com can help.

“During tough economic times, libraries of all sizes, but especially libraries serving smaller populations are feeling the strain of reduced budgets and resources,” said George Cigale, founder and CEO of Tutor.com. “Our decade of experience working with public libraries helped our team create these new packages to best serve libraries and their patrons with effective, affordable programs that increase the value the library is bringing to the community with minimal impact on staff.”

Bringing career services or tutoring to the community is easy. Libraries simply choose the community members they want to help, select the corresponding Center and then work with Tutor.com to pick a package of one-to-one sessions that best fit the population. Libraries pay only for the sessions that the community uses and have total control over their budget.

Each package includes unlimited, 24/7 access to the SkillsCenter™ Resource Library, a unique online collection of vetted, community-rated resources organized by subject including resume templates, local job openings, academic worksheets, standardized test samples and much more. Libraries also get access to professional promotional materials and receive a comprehensive monthly report that tracks the success of the program including patrons’ ratings and comments.
