I want to note the following—as I think it’s really amazing—it is taken directly from the Tutor.com website:
In the U.S. military? Then tutoring could be FREE to your family! Get homework and studying help from a professional tutor any time you need it. Eligible students in Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, National Guard and Reserve families can use the DoD-funded Tutor.com for U.S. Military Families program at no cost. Expert tutors are online 24/7 and available to help military families around the world in more than 16 subjects, including test prep, proofreading, Math, Science, English and Social Studies.
Eligible military-connected students include:
- All grades K-12 dependents of National Guard, Reserve and Active Duty military families
- Some military adults, including part-time National Guard and Reserve service members and their adult dependents
That’s a lot of free tutoring sessions! And that’s pretty impressive! (To see if your military family qualifies for free tutoring, make sure to check the most current eligibility rules at www.tutor.com/military/eligiblity.)
In addition, the overall number of Tutor.com tutoring sessions –almost 10 million (and counting) is impressive as well! Tutor.com has more than 2,500 tutors, and has served more than 1.3 million students during the last year.
Things I like about Tutor.com include:
- The tutors are certified teachers, college professors, graduate students and subject matter experts
- Every tutor passes an extensive screening and third-party background check
- Every session is recorded for quality control and safety purposes (I really like this aspect)
