Multimedia's New Online Math Tutoring Service Gives Real Hope to Parents and Schools Anxious to Help Children with Failing Grades
May 21, 2005 (PRLEAP.COM) Education NewsBROOKLYN, N.Y. - Multi Media Tutorial Services, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: MMTS), well known for its flagship math tutorial programs, Math Made Easy (tm), announces the launch of its online tutoring service using its recently developed proprietary technology.
Multi Media's Tutorial Channel will provide high quality live professional tutoring in the convenience of the student's home or at a school's facility at an affordable price - taking the company to a new level in the delivery of personalized tutoring. Through this special personalized service, tutors will be available for as little as $15 per session. Now, there is a substantially lower-priced alternative to the high cost of in-person tutoring, which can exceed $100 per session.
The current demand may never have been higher for effective tutoring programs to help school children who are struggling to meet minimum standards in math. Many parents have a sense of desperation and fear because of the very real possibility that new government requirements may result in their children being held back a grade because of low scores on standardized tests.
The "No Child Left Behind" federal legislation requires testing in the 4th and 8th grade, and low scores in many schools have both educators and parents scrambling to find help.
The company is now well positioned to provide services directly to schools that have not met the minimum standards as well as to the parents of struggling students who need help on an individual basis.
"We have now begun reaching out to the many public schools whose students are not meeting the federally mandated standards of performance. We can show them how to use our proprietary web-based platform to tutor their students individually or in groups," explained Barry Reichman of Multi Media, creator of Math Made Easy (tm), a tutorial system that the Company estimates has helped over one million students from kindergarten through college become math achievers.
"According to a published report in the Cincinnati Enquirer, consumers spend about $2 billion a year on academic tutors for elementary and high school, and another $2 billion on SAT, ACT and other preparation classes for college entrance exams, making this a very attractive market for Multi Media to address," said Reichman.
Multi Media's unique online tutoring system enables the tutors, working from any standard computer, to teach in real-time with visuals and audio transmitted via the Internet. Students are able to attend tutoring sessions via the www.TutorialChannel.com website where they learn as the teacher presents dynamic learning concepts illustrated on a "whiteboard" and projected onto the students' computer screen. The students are also able to show their work to the tutor via the same "whiteboard" technology, and communicate freely in text or voice with the tutor in real-time.
The online tutoring service provided by Multi Media is an affordable alternative to traditional tutoring and learning centers, and far more convenient, making it an ideal choice for individual parents who want to help their children succeed in mathematics.
"It's great. I don't have to get dressed up for the tutor. I can do it on my computer when it fits my schedule, so it doesn't get in the way of my sports," said John B., a student using the service. "And my parents like it because they don't have to drive me to a tutor."
Parents and educators who are interested in learning more about the TutorialChannel and the Made Made Easy remedial curriculum, are welcome to call Multi Media.
