NEW YORK -- Studying for an algebra quiz at 11 p.m.? Home sick and need to get your biology assignment completed at 10:30 a.m.? No problem.
Beginning Monday, students can connect to a professional tutor within minutes, 24 hours a day, seven day a week at Tutor.com, the largest online tutoring service connecting millions of students for instant help from qualified tutors.
Tutor.com is the only online tutoring service offering instant, on demand help with no schedules and no appointments.
Students are seeking help with school assignments and homework not just after school, but all day sometimes deep into the evening hours. After-school activities keep many students busy right through dinner time.
It's estimated that more than 2 million students are now being home schooled and more and more children are also choosing K-12 virtual school programs.
These students need flexible options to get help on their time schedule.
Learning centers, face-to-face tutors and other online tutoring options are still tied to a more traditional model that requires families to schedule appointments during after-school hours.
At Tutor.com, students always have access to the one-on-one help they need from screened, qualified tutors in math, science, social studies and English.
More than 2,200 tutors are available to work with students on homework assignments, study skills, exam preparation, writing skills and much more.
Tutor.com completed more than 840,000 one-on-one tutoring sessions in 2007 and expects to do well over one million sessions in 2008 as more students take advantage of tutoring around the clock.
Prices range from $29.99 for 50 minutes of tutoring, for students who need occasional help, to $229.99 for 500 minutes, for test preparation and research project help.
