January Wrap Up

It’s been a busy and great start to the year! We want to take a moment and share some of the best news from the past month about Tutor.com and the students and organizations that we are happy to support.

Military Families

There’s been a lot in the news lately about military families. President Obama has asked that we ‘support military families 100%’. Read all about this unprecedented support here. We are proud that our Department of Defense funded programs supports military children, military spouses and active duty soldiers with their scholastic and career goals.

Karen Jowers, staff writer for the Military Times, calls Tutor.com one of the most progressive programs for military families in the past decade.

We were happy to participate in the Military One Source webinar series designed to aid military families with everything from parenting and homework to money management and debt.

We also went to Offutt Air Force Base to help spread the word about free online tutoring for Military Families. Be sure to check out some of the great pictures on our Facebook page for Military Families.

Schools

Julie Weintraub left snowed-in New York for the warmer climes of Fort Lauderdale! She visited some great Broward County schools training teachers and speaking in front of hundreds of ninth graders. The enthusiasm was palpable! Kids were excited to get on and use Tutor.com right away. Be sure to check out the great pictures.

The Tutor.com team will be attending both the FETC and the National Title 1 Conferences in Florida. If you’ll be attending, let us know. We’d love to meet you there.

If you want to know more about how Tutor.com can help your school with extended learning day initiatives, college and career readiness and support for algebra and other gateway classes, please visit Tutor.com/Schools

Libraries

Tutor.com was featured in KAALtv’s piece on how Austin Library is using Online Tutors to Help Improve Grades.

We love this great YouTube video from Palm Beach County Library about how students are using Tutor.com
