With college enrollments on the rise and a shortage of qualified science and math teachers in K-12, it's impossible to give every student the one-on-one attention they deserve, until now.
Pittsburgh, Penn. (PRWEB) January 4, 2010
Quantum Simulations, Inc., a developer of artificial intelligence (AI) tutoring, assessment and professional development software announced today the launch of http://www.quantumtutors.com, an online tutor subscription service where college, high school and middle school students can receive one-on-one tutoring help in the areas of:
- Introductory accounting
- General chemistry
- Basic mathematics
Offered at a fraction of the cost of private or online tutoring services which can average $35 to $70 per hour of instruction, Quantum's tutoring software subscriptions are available for as little as $15 per semester (180 days unlimited access).
The Quantum Tutors are like having a personal tutor ready to help day or night, whether students need to work on an assignment and the instructor isn't available to answer questions, or are preparing for a test and need more practice. The software is just like working with a real-life tutor or instructor.
Unlike homework systems that only tell students, "Wrong, try again," or provide the same generic feedback for every student, Quantum explains "why" individual student answers are right or wrong. Whether it's a simple math error, confusion about a formula or misunderstanding about an important concept, Quantum analyzes student work and knows what specific errors students are making and guides them back to the correct solution path, allowing students to learn from their mistakes and not repeat them at test time.
"With so much pressure on students to perform at higher levels in difficult subjects such as accounting, chemistry and mathematics where one concept builds on the next and it's easy to fall behind, the Quantum Tutors are the perfect complement to teacher instruction and the textbook," comments Mr. Dale Holder, Quantum's Chief Academic Officer and award-winning master teacher for over 35 years. "With college enrollments on the rise and a shortage of qualified science and math teachers in K-12, it's impossible to give every student the one-on-one attention they deserve, until now."
