For many students, three months of summer vacation often results in a back slide in their educational progress. However, the interactive tutoring site Virtual Nerd provides a new alternative for students to avoid summer break brain drain.
Virtual Nerd is offering a summer special: a three month subscription for the price of just one month - $49. Students get unlimited access to interactive math tutorials through a very personalized and highly interactive Web-based experience that is available whenever and wherever students want. For details on the “Three for One” promotion, go to http://www.virtualnerd.com/braindrain.
“Teachers often tell us that they may spend as much as one month at the beginning of each school year reviewing and re-teaching topics,” says Co-Founder and President, Josh Salcman. “So if students spend just a little time each week using Virtual Nerd, it can help them with retaining concepts so they are well prepared for returning to school in the fall.”
Virtual Nerd offers students in grades 7-12 access to hundreds of Algebra I step-by-step video tutorials. The site combines engaging, high-definition video with a patent-pending e-Learning platform that anticipates students’ questions and guides students step by step through any problem. The platform also lets students break down any problem to its most basic roots using supporting tutorials. Because the site is interactive, students can control the pace and amount of detail in each lesson to effectively learn concepts—not just find answers.
“Whether it’s from their lake house or their living room, our site lets students come and go as they please, whenever it fits into their busy schedule.” says Leo Shmuylovich, Co-Founder and Head of Educational Content for Virtual Nerd. “Summer is a busy time for families but it doesn’t have to mean a back slide in students’ progress.”
Added Salcman, “In the fall, when kids go back to school, they’ll be ready to hit the ground running, rather than spending weeks reviewing what they already learned.”
