It’s show season here at Tutor.com! We’ve been on the road non-stop to see our growing number of college and university clients. Our last trip was to Philadelphia for Innovations 2012 – a show that focuses on the community college experience.
More community colleges are offering online tutoring to complement their on-campus support centers to help retain students and get them through challenging courses. With the rise of non-traditional students—who are already busy with jobs and families—convenient, around-the-clock support is becoming a necessity. Online tutoring from Tutor.com has the added benefit of being available from any mobile device including tablets. Recent surveys show that 25% of college students now rely on tablets to do their course reading. With Tutor.com, they can easily connect to a tutor for help from their tablet too.
If you missed the show and are thinking about bringing online tutoring to your school, you’re in luck! Below are the answers to the top three questions your colleagues asked at our booth. Have more? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
