How will the tutor get in touch with my student?
Still have questions?

Not at all! We realize that some students/parents are more comfortable with technology than others. For a step-by-step walkthrough of what online tutoring will look like, please call Karla Machado (832-766-0542). Additionally, we've asked all tutors to do a session test run before your student's first online session with that tutor. Please don't let technology stand in the way of getting academic help. We'll assist you in sorting it out! :)
Absolutely! Our tutors are tech-savy, and many are adjusting very well to their own college classes online. We can definitely help manage your kids' academics online and ease your load at home.
We offer a variety of different options to get tutor and student connected. Platforms like Skype and FaceTime are free. For screensharing, they could use Google Hangouts or Zoom. If either tutor or student needs to handwrite things, the Zoom has screenshare capabilities, and we use other free whiteboard tools. Reach out to your tutor and/or Karla before your first scheduled online session to see what will work best!
Is online tutoring going to be as helpful as in-person tutoring?
I'm busy all day with conference calls and emails for work. Can you just help me keep my kids on track, figure out how their academics are going and what they need help on?
We think so! While we recognize there are challenges and limitations with technology, from the parent feedback we've received so far, we do not believe that these challenges are significantly affecting the quality of sessions. Our tutors are still the same - passionate, eager to teach, and very dedicated to your students!
We're not great with technology. Is online tutoring going to be a hassle/confusing to do?
