Who are the tutors?

The tutors are carefully screened experts and include certified teachers, college professors, graduate students, select undergraduates from accredited universities and other professionals. Tutors complete an extensive application and training process that includes testing on subject matter, a final exam, and mock tutoring sessions. Every tutor must pass a thorough background check.

How Our Tutors Help You:

Our tutors use leading questions and the Socratic Method to help you find solutions to your problems. We will never just give you the answers (how will you learn, if we just give away the answer?), but we have many ways to get you unstuck. Tutors use our chat feature to communicate, draw on the shared whiteboard to explain a concept, use our file sharing tool to review an essay or worksheet, or use the shared web browser to find a helpful website or conduct valuable research with the student. Tutors may also give students the boost they need by reviewing and researching key concepts, explaining what doesn't make sense and providing examples and step-by-step instruction when required.
