Tutor.com Receives Platinum Award in 2023 Modern Library Awards from LibraryWorks
Company Designated Multiyear Honoree
NEW YORK, Jan. 17, 2023 /— Tutor.com, one of the world's largest and most innovative online tutoring organizations, is pleased to report that it has received a Platinum Award in LibraryWorks’ ninth annual Modern Library Awards (MLAs).
The MLAs were created to recognize the top products and services in the library industry. Products and services were submitted in the fall using a simple application, and then were posted on a private site with an enhanced description and attendant materials. These products were batched into small groups and sent to the LibraryWorks database of more than 80,000 librarians at public, K–12, academic, and special libraries. Only customers with experience with these products/services in their facilities were permitted to judge the products/services, resulting in an unbiased score.
Each judge scored the product on a numeric basis from 1–10 on a series of questions regarding functionality, value, customer service, and other categories. As in years past, Tutor.com received the highest possible distinction of Platinum in the 2023 awards program.
"We are delighted to be a multiyear Platinum awardee," said Sandi White, Senior Vice President, Institutional Partnerships, Tutor.com/The Princeton Review. "Libraries are the backbone of communities across the country, and we are honored to partner with them to support patrons of all ages and educational stages.”
