When tutors love what they teach, students love what they learn. The tutors who truly love teaching are the ones that will strive to engage students and take pride in their students' successes. This guiding principle has led Tutor America to develop a unique team of tutors who can't wait to see the "aha" moment we've all come to love.
Tutor America was founded to address the educational disparity that resulted from a hasty and unprepared transition to online learning. Students benefit immensely from individual instruction and conversational learning. We provide a platform for enthusiastic and educated tutors to meet one-on-one with motivated students. All of our tutors are experienced, background checked, U.S. citizens, and have been screened for their passion to teach.
How it works
Right now, we offer 60-minute lessons for core subjects in grades k-12. Tutors and students interface using Google Meets, which allows tutors to share their screens and get creative with their lessons.
Getting started with Tutor America is easy. To schedule a lesson, go to the home page and follow the four easy steps. Once a lesson is scheduled, your tutor will send you an email introducing themself. This email will contain a link to the tutoring session!
Below are our most frequently asked questions. If you do not see your question answered here, please visit the Contact page and submit a ticket.
CAN I, AS A PARENT, JOIN THE TUTORING SESSION WITH MY STUDENT?
Yes, you are absolutely welcome to join! In fact, you can use the same link to join from a different computer to give your student some space during the session.
I’M NOT SURE IF MY STUDENT IS BEHIND OR AHEAD OF GRADE LEVEL, WHICH GRADE SHOULD I INDICATE WHEN SCHEDULING?
If you're not sure, that is okay! Just enter the grade which the school has placed your student in. Try to indicate what topics your student is struggling with, and we will take it from there!
THERE ARE MULTIPLE TUTORS AVAILABLE AT THE TIME I CHOSE. HOW SHOULD I CHOOSE ONE?
It's always nice to have options, but maybe you're stuck wondering if you're making the right choice. First, take some time to view the profile of each available tutor using the "view tutors" button.
In the end, all of our tutors are screened for their expertise and passion, so you'll always be making a good choice.
WILL THE TUTOR BE ABLE TO ASSIGN HOMEWORK TO MY STUDENT? DOES THIS COST EXTRA?
Tutors are happy to make recommendations for practice during the 60-minute lesson! Moreover, tutors are happy to spend time going over that practice at the start of the next lesson. In order to ensure your tutor is prepared to make a recommendation, please provide additional materials (current lessons, homeworks, study guides, etc.) when you book the lesson.
WHAT IF A TUTOR DOES A DISSATISFACTORY JOB OR DOESN’T SHOW UP FOR A SESSION?
If you are unsatisfied with a tutoring session, you can submit a ticket on the “Contacts” page. Tickets are usually processed within a couple of days. We are happy to refund sessions that did not maintain our standards for excellence!
