Meeting military families and finding out how they use Tutor.com is one of our favorite parts of our job. We read through hundreds of user comments each week (and often share the best with you), but we especially enjoy meeting the people who benefit from our service in person.
This week, Tutor.com colleagues Kara Froman and Jill Musguire made their way to Fort Knox where they hosted an event for Army families with Michael Steinmacher, Director of Fort Knox’s Barr Memorial Library.
One mom and son at the event tried Tutor.com for the first time while we were there. The 14-year-old student is looking forward to using Tutor.com for math and science (not surprising to us, since these are our most popular subjects!).
Colonel Eric Schwartz, Garrison Commander, stopped by to address the attendees and shared that he uses Tutor.com with his family. “My wife and kids are definitely Tutor.com fans.” He went on to joke that he’s also a fan because “I have no idea what kind of math my son does anymore!” and he encourages him to get a tutor.
On a serious note, Col. Schwartz emphasized that it’s important to support Army families, especially when they are dealing with the stress of multiple deployments, and the Department of Defense is doing that through programs like Tutor.com.
A service member from Fort Knox at the event was excited that tutors in our College Center will be able to help him when he starts classes for his college degree.
Active duty service members and their spouses and children can access Tutor.com for free, 24/7. You’ll need an Army passcode to access the service, and it only takes a minute to get one at www.tutor.com/military. National Guard personnel on active duty in a deployed status and their dependents, and military reservists on active duty in a deployed status and their dependents, are also eligible.
