Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 13, 2013
WebWiseTutors, LLC, a premier provider of online tutoring services, is pleased to announce a merger with California Tutor Network, Inc., a leading online tutoring solution in California.
Combining the two companies’ technologies, capital, and experience of over 80 years in the educational field, WebWise Tutors is now in a unique position to take advantage of the thriving online tutoring industry. Today, more than 4 million K-12 students participate in some type of online schooling, making online learning one of the fastest growing sectors in the educational field.
Studies show that the results warrant this growth. According to a 2010 study by the Department of Education, students learning in an online environment performed modestly better, on average, than those learning the same material through traditional brick and mortar instruction.
“Through the combining of talents and synergies with California Tutor Network, we are able to leverage capital, assets and leadership to bring our specialized brand of high quality education to more students,” stated Chris Spohn, President of WebWise Tutors. “It’s exciting to be part of an industry that has the potential to make such an impact on so many students.”
“The market is ripe for the customized services we offer,” added Maggie Garretson, President of California Tutor Network. “Through the merger, we will now be able to offer our flexible, individualized approach to learning on a national level. It has always been our mission to align education with each student's individual needs, while creating a life-long strategy for success regardless of age or grade level.”
