Online Tutoring

Online tutoring provides a fresh and innovative way to learn.  We have experienced tutors available to assist with online tutoring in math, science and writing, so students can get the assistance they need.

With online tutoring, students and tutors are able to talk directly to each other by using a webcam and a microphone. The easy-to-use interface includes several functions including the ability to write or draw to each other in order to make the online session just as helpful as a face-to-face session.
