The holidays are an especially tough time for teens to stay on top of their homework. Between traveling and attending family commitments, it’s challenging for teens to find help when they get stuck on a concept. Chicago Tribune’s recent article, “Kids can take online tutoring on the road” sheds light on one of the best ways for students to get help while on winter break – on-demand, one-to-one online tutoring.
When students have access to Tutor.com through your library, there are no boundaries to where they can study. Students can receive personalized support from a live tutor from any device with an Internet connection, whether a desktop, laptop, smartphone or tablet. This means that they can get help wherever they are, whether snowed in at home, on the way to Grandma’s house, and everywhere in between.
Tutor.com’s 3,000 tutors are subject-matter experts and use a variety of teaching methods, including the Socratic method, to make sure students not only understand the problem at hand, but also the underlying concept. When school is out, students don’t have to struggle alone – or with parents who haven’t been in school for more than a decade – to solve that Algebra problem or craft a well-written essay.
By providing Tutor.com to their patrons, over 2,300 public libraries are helping teens and their parents get help with difficult homework assignments, and find peace, over the holidays. Tutor.com is the only online tutoring company that allows students to take tutoring on the road by providing a real-time connection to an expert tutor through any smartphone, tablet or computer.
