Founder, Stuart Ackerman states,
"The lesson is the most critical part of the learning experience. Practicing the skills and concepts learned from the lesson is second. I've developed Tutorgiant.com to do both. The learning experience can now cross the boundaries of time and location. Families have more control than ever with regards to their child's education by learning where and when thier children learn. Technology will help those students who miss school because they are ill or because they require more reinforcement of skills and concepts."
