tutorNEXT Dramatically Improves the Performance of Students Struggling With Math

August 10, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Education News
James faces his HSPA exam in October and, until two months ago, was dreading the exam. He knew he had to pass the New Jersey High School Proficiency Test, but his mathematical understanding was not good enough. His parents could not afford a $50/hr private tutor who could teach him at his pace and help him prepare for the exam. As a result, he was frustrated and struggling with math in school and at home.

One of his friends recommended him to tutorNEXT – a high-quality, one-on-one online tutoring provider. After taking a free trial session and finding it convenient as well as effective, he was very excited and joined the program immediately.

“The last two months have been transformational for me in terms of boosting my math understanding. My tutor has been extremely patient and has helped me understand the basics before moving onto more difficult topics. At the start of the program, my tutor gave me an assessment test, which I failed as expected. Just last week, he gave me another test and I scored 46%. I have no doubt that by the time I take the real test, I will score 60% or more. My parents are so thrilled! They never imagined that I could ever score more than 30% in math!” says an exuberant James.

tutorNEXT has helped several students struggling with math do a complete turnaround in just a few months. “We assign a single tutor to each student to ensure that the tutor and the student can build a rapport, and can work together at the pace of the student. The tutor also creates customized assignments based on individual students’ needs. This approach and personal attention has helped us deliver positive results for many of our students,” says Kaushik Mukherjee, who heads the India operations for the company.

Online tutoring is highly effective as well as very affordable, costing just $20/hr. Personal, in-home tutoring at a time that’s convenient for students at such an affordable price was unthinkable just a couple of years ago. “Currently, many of our students go to summer camp during the day and take lessons in the evening from us. We are sure that our students will surprise their schoolteachers by being so prepared when the new school year starts! Our special summer program includes sessions at just $17.50/hr to help students build a strong foundation for concepts that will be taught to them in the fall,” continues Kaushik.

tutorNEXT assigns students 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 a computer-connected headset and using a shared Internet whiteboard to exchange information – making the session very similar to a face-to-face interaction.

tutorNEXT offers one-on-one tutoring programs in Math and English as well as Test Preparation (GT, TJ, SAT, GMAT, GRE, GED) for K-12 and college students for $20 per hour. Students may also sign up for its homework help program priced at $99/month.
