TutorAndMentor.com announces one-on-one live online tutoring in math and statistics at low prices
November 06, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Education NewsWhen her neighbor told Kimberley about TutorAndMentor.com and how it provides quality math tutoring over the internet, she was skeptical about the idea. “How could an atmosphere of learning be created with tutor and the student sitting hundreds of miles apart?” she asked. Since the first session was free, she decided to give it a try anyway. The session transformed her thinking. She says, “I’ve been taking Geometry classes for two weeks now and I already feel more confident going to my classes, and scored much better in my last test than any of the earlier ones”.
TutorAndMentor.com offers one-on-one tutoring and mentoring services in math and statistics in an online live environment at an affordable cost. By utilizing the benefits of advanced interactive technologies and the internet, the process simulates the experience of face-to-face interaction with a tutor. The tutor and the student communicate with the help of headset, tablet writing pad and digital pencil. They exchange questions and answers by writing on the pad, which are displayed on their computer screens in real-time.
Shreesh Chandra, the CEO of TutorAndMentor says, “We found that students, parents and educators generally understand the benefits of supplemental tutoring in helping students reach their academic goals, but the reasons why many of them do not go for it are high cost, difficulty to manage schedule and travel time, and lack of individual attention. We were determined to find a solution to these problems”. And the solution came by taking the concept online. It drove the prices down and obviated the necessity of parents to take kids to the tutor or having to pay the tutor to visit the student.
Encouraged by the positive feedback of students and parents, TutorAndMentor.com plans to introduce other subjects like Science and Social Studies in near future. “Not only that,” Mr. Chandra says, “we are also in the process of designing packages to help students prepare for standardized tests. Our ultimate goal is that no student should be left behind in life as a result of inadequate preparation and expensive tutoring services.” A lofty goal indeed, but it definitely sounds worth it.
