tutorNEXT Launches One-on-one Online Tutoring for College and Adult Education
April 13, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Education NewsVienna, VA – April 13, 2007 – tutorNEXT today announced the launch of one-on-one interactive online tutoring program for college students and adults pursuing continuing education courses. The program provides college students and busy working adults with easy access to high-quality and cost-effective academic support at their convenience.
tutorNEXT assigns a student with a dedicated personal tutor who conducts a diagnostic test, assesses strengths and development areas, and builds a personalized tutoring plan. Tutoring sessions are fully interactive with the teacher and student speaking via computer-connected headset and using a shared Internet whiteboard to exchange information – making the session almost similar to a face-to-face interaction as possible.
“We believe that online tutoring can open doors for adults who need external help to brush up skills they haven’t used since they graduated from school or college several years ago,” says Anu Bhave, founder and president of tutorNEXT. “These individuals usually have a job, a family that requires time commitments, as well as other responsibilities. When they get back into college – whether for classroom or online courses –, they struggle to find the time to refresh their basic mathematical skills. Obtaining an experienced tutor who can teach late at night based on their schedules is expensive and difficult, if not impossible. We provide personal help to these adults at a time that’s convenient for them, whether it is after returning from work or after putting their children to bed.”
The popularity of online tutoring has been growing for the last few years because of its convenience, effectiveness, and low cost relative to classroom or in-home tutoring.
“With my schedule, getting a tutor at home or going to a center was never an option. Now, I can take lessons either from home or from my hotel – even late at night. I never had that option before,” says Darren Senior, a pilot with Continental Airlines who has been taking calculus lessons from tutorNEXT for the last 2 months. “tutorNEXT’s program is wonderful. I get help from my tutor for my assignments as well as in learning concepts. Given that I haven’t done this kind of math for 15 years, I think I am doing pretty well with his assistance.”
tutorNEXT offers one-on-one tutoring programs in math and English for K-12 and college students for $20 per hour. Students may also sign up for its homework help program priced at $99/month.
tutorNEXT provides high quality, personalized online tutoring to K-12 and college students. tutorNEXT’s highly experienced and trained teachers are passionate about teaching and want to make a difference in the lives of students. Students use tutorNEXT to improve grades, master specific skills, obtain support for class tests and quizzes, and supplement their current coursework.
