TutorVista, the world's leading online tutoring company today shared some customer success stories highlighting the benefits of its tutoring. TutorVista which has served over 7 million live tutoring sessions is the preferred online tutoring provider for students and parents looking at an effective and affordable tutoring option. Highly qualified tutors, a proven teaching methodology and using the same textbooks as used in a student's school sets TutorVista's tutoring apart.
TutorVista which has been a pioneer in online teaching methodologies uses a proprietary whiteboard to conduct its sessions more effectively. This whiteboard allows a student to write, draw, share files and chat with the tutors. The student and tutor can both interact in a one-on-one environment and work on solving problems, building concepts or preparing for important tests and quizzes. The sessions are just like face-to-face sessions, with a child getting personalized attention and setting the pace at which the learning happens. The tutoring covers all grades and subjects. So whether they need Math Help, Biology Help, Physics, Chemistry or Statistics Help, students can schedule sessions and connect with a tutor and learn at their own pace.
Also unlike other tutoring providers, TutorVista ensures that its sessions are customized and personalized to meet a student's learning needs. Before students starts taking sessions with TutorVista, they undergo a session with an academic counselor to assess a students' weak areas. Post that, a personalized assessment plan is drawn up to meet the specific learning needs of the student. The tutors work on strengthening the specific subject basics or work on explaining concepts in areas a student is struggling with. This makes students more confident with handling the subject.
Dave an 8th grade student was struggling with Math and his parents signed him up with TutorVista to get Math Help. An academic counselor spoke to his parents and he took an initial assessment test. The test clearly helped demarcate areas of improvement and a learning plan was drawn up. Dave started taking regular tutoring sessions and his grades in tests and assignments after 3 months of tutoring. Another big positive change was that he started enjoying the subject, which was clearly reflected in his grades.
In fact countless studies and research have shown that students are more comfortable asking doubts and seeking clarifications in an online environment. This holds especially true of they are not very confident of a subject. While they might hesitate in a face-to-face interaction, they have no such problems in an online, one-on-one set-up.
Sara, a 9th grader took Biology, Chemistry and Physics Help with TutorVista. Sara's family was looking for a tutoring option which could be done from home and which was not too expensive. TutorVista met both these requirements. Sara was able to log-in from home during a convenient time and learn the subject of her choice at her own pace. Sara liked reviewing what she had learnt in a tutoring session. Since all TutorVista sessions were recorded, she could actually go over what she had learnt at a later day and time. She could also share the sessions with her friends since they were all recorded. Sara's grades and confidence improved dramatically with TutorVista.
TutorVista is also ideal for parents who want to be more involved with what their children are learning. Hannah and Mathew parents of a 6th grader wanted regular assessment reports to find out what their child was learning in a tutoring session. They signed up for Math tutoring with TutorVista. They were very happy to get regular assessment reports detailing what their child was learning. The assessment reports also marked out areas for improvement and learning suggestions. This helped the parents stay in touch with what their child was learning. Also since all tutoring sessions were recorded, they could go over a session with their child.
