It (Technology) has become a digital pacifier rather than a digital tool and my hope is that Timely Tutor can help create change.
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) August 29, 2014
Timely Tutor, a fun and educational application for kids, has announced the immediate availability of the app in the Apple App Store. Timely Tutor, incorporating national standards in education, interrupts “play-time” via a timer quizzing the designated user with a certain number of questions from assigned modules such as spelling, math, geography, etc. Should the child not receive a passing percentage as dictated by the parent, the app requires the user to retake the test before the timer resets allowing the user to go back to "play time."
“Our society is ruled by technology,” said John Pashales, founder of Timely Tutor. “Children are using these technologies; iPhones, iPads, iPods, etc, for consumption more than learning. It has become a digital pacifier rather than a digital tool and my hope is that Timely Tutor can help create change.”
Timely Tutor allows parents to reinforce what is learned at school while at home. Best of all, the parent or teacher can assign different modules for each child based on grade or skill level and can also assign certain modules by a subject on which they may need to practice.
“The app is completely customizable for each specific user,” Pashales said. “As a parent myself, I find this important because it doesn't limit the usability based on knowledge or skill level. It allows the parent to designate what their child works on and ensures them that it matches their child’s ability. They can't use the 'I don't know' excuse.”
Different from other recently launched timing services for other tablets which just limit usage, Timely Tutor incorporates fun into learning with bright, friendly characters that make the time spent learning enjoyable to the child while allowing parents to limit screen time spent on video games and online videos. Timely Tutor also works with select teachers and schools to build modules specific to what they are teaching in class, which makes the app truly customizable to each child.
