How Student Tutor Works
Student Tutor does it’s best to understand the needs of each student in need and match them to the best tutor. They have a four-step process for ensuring success for all students and tutors.
- A K-12 student enrolls on Student Tutor’s site for help.
- Academic advisors with Student Tutor determine the student’s starting point, goals, and action plan. This plan not only includes success in one class, but in their entire academic career. The plan helps students choose the right classes, raise their overall GPA and test scores to meet college requirements, and even maximize scholarship opportunities.
- Tutors are then assigned to help the student meet the goals of this plan. As a tutor, your job is to help the student reach the milestones they need to achieve their goals.
- With the help of an online discussion platform, the tutor, advisor, and parent are all kept in the loop on the student’s progress and achievements.
For tutors, it’s a great way to help students be successful while building your resume and earning money.
