Miami, FL (PRWEB) January 22, 2009
MINDsprinting (http://www.mindsprinting.com), the nation's premier online provider of FREE, K-12 math and reading directed worksheet tutoring programs, sadly announces that it may have to suspend its FREE tutoring services, which are currently being used by schools and hospitals across the country.
"MINDsprinting's FREE tutoring site launched in mid-2008, so we haven't had sufficient time to build awareness and enrollment to the levels necessary for the site to sustain itself. And because of the economic turmoil that began shortly after our launch, we've been unable to secure the sponsors or capital necessary to continue operating the site until it reaches those levels. Yet we know that our programs are desired by families and schools; a small 60-day test marketing program resulted in 45,000 enrollees! We recognize that these are very difficult times for everyone, but unless some large companies, investors or philanthropists can assist us now, we will have to suspend operations shortly. And suspending the site will be a huge loss for many families and school districts; the number of teachers using the system grows every day. The proven, individualized tutoring we provide for free is something that most families and schools truly need but can least afford at this time. The sad reality is that while everyone talks about wanting to improve education, we've been unable to find anyone to actually help us do it." said Douglas J. Golden, Co-founder and President of MINDsprinting.
MINDsprinting provides an easy-to-use website and proven programs that ensure mastery of necessary math and reading skills before students advance. Interactive assessment tests tailor programs to each student's abilities and needs. MINDsprinting assigns lessons based upon student performance (parents don't have to select lessons like they do on other websites). Students learn and advance at their own pace, which builds self esteem. Lessons are printed for completion so access to the Internet and a printer anywhere (e.g. work, library) enables all families to participate. Each enrolled student receives all reading and math programs for free.
