Why do students prefer online tutors?

This service not only helps the students learn concepts but it greatly increases their confidence in their ability to do so.  Large classrooms with ever increasing curriculum loads just don’t offer as much one-on-one help as some students need.

Many parents don’t have enough time and/or content knowledge to make up for this. If your child really needs more help outside of the classroom, how does compare to in person tutoring?

They can log in to get help right when they need it. There is no need to worry about fitting in a tutor around your busy schedule. No need for tutors to fit you in around their busy schedule. There are hundreds of tutors available online at any given time.  Plus, only pay for the minutes that you use – no session minimum or maximum length. 

Internet communication is intuitive for todays student so the virtual classroom works great for them. Students can get encouragement and help without asking in front of a whole classroom. As a bonus, every tip and example that the tutors provide can be saved or printed for later reference.

Is it worth paying for?

Its roughly the same cost as paying an in-person tutor (~$30/hr) but offers much more flexibility. At the very least, its worth a try.

    Hm, interesting. We can take classes online. Why not tutoring, too?
