Parents can monitor student progress and feedback through the account section of the Tutor Pace website, and detailed progress reports are emailed monthly to the parents.
Enrollment is easy and the cost options are exceptional. You can try it out for two hours ($14.99) or a week ($34.99) – there are no long term commitments.
