LCPS Providing Free Online Tutoring through Tutor.com
LCPS is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Tutor.com to provide access to a free, online tutoring service to all LCPS students. Tutor.com, which is a service of the Princeton Review, offers one-on-one access to tutors in more than 200 subjects, including many in Spanish, and for all grade levels, 24 hours a day.
Access to help, whether during the school day or around the homework table, is near-immediate, with students connecting to tutors through their Schoology accounts within about a minute. There is no limit to the number of times a student from LCPS can connect with a tutor. And the service is 100% free.
“We believe that all students should be able to access additional support when they need it, therefore, we are pleased to be able to offer this service to our students at no cost,” said Dr. Ashley Ellis, deputy superintendent of instruction. “We are offering this service because students should have access to the tools they need to be successful in school. By partnering with Tutor.com, we are further able to fulfill the mission of our strategic plan and empower our students to achieve their best.”
Tutoring sessions take place in an interactive online classroom, which includes whiteboard, text and coding screens, graph paper and graphing calculator, and a wide range of tools. Students can engage with their tutors via a two-way text-chat or voice to allow learners of all ages to receive help in a format that is most comfortable for them. All of Tutor.com’s tutors are vetted by a rigorous application process that tests for expert-level subject knowledge and effective tutoring methodology. Online tutors also complete an extensive background check. All classroom sessions are recorded and monitored by Tutor Management.
Students may also drop off their written work and receive detailed feedback from a tutor within a day. The platform also provides access to self-guided resources, including Advanced Placement (AP) videos and SAT/ACT Essentials courses from the Princeton Review.
