TutorVista Brings Personalized Online Tutoring to United States; World-Class
Online Tutoring Based on Comprehensive Assessment for Students of All Ages
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)-- June 7, 2006 – TutorVista (www.tutorvista.com), a new online tutoring service that utilizes world class tutors to provide high-quality tutoring and test prep based on detailed diagnostic assessment, is now available to students of all ages in the United States.
TutorVista provides unlimited, 24-hour online tutoring services for K-12, college and graduate level students. TutorVista offers assistance in subjects including Math, English, Biology, Physics, Chemistry as well as other elementary and high school subjects. TutorVista also offers college and graduate level exam tutoring programs to help students maximize scores on the SAT, PSAT, ACT, AP, and other tests. Unlimited monthly tutoring sessions are available for $99.99 per month and can be scheduled anytime, to provide expert help when students need it most.
"TutorVista offers personalized one-on-one tutoring," said Krishnan Ganesh, founder and CEO of TutorVista. "We recognize that each student's needs are different. Experts agree that one-on-one tutoring is the most effective way to learn, but traditional tutoring has always been expensive and inconvenient. TutorVista's services are easy to use, highly effective and affordable, giving parents the tools they need to ensure their children's academic success."
TutorVista's online program begins with an assessment test that identifies a student's strengths and weaknesses, followed by the development of an individual learning plan. In addition to live one-on-one tutoring, students have access to worksheets, lessons, practice tests, question banks and animations to help them master a subject. TutorVista's virtual classrooms are equipped with voice and chat (instant message) interaction, an electronic whiteboard for use by both student and tutor, and a toll-free fax number for review of printed materials.
"TutorVista is amazing," said Viki Hom of Modesto, California, whose 16-year old daughter Kailey was having trouble with geometry and wasn't getting the individual attention she needed at school. "Kailey uses TutorVista all the time for homework help and to prepare for exams. Thanks to TutorVista, Kailey is doing well in geometry and is now using her class at school to review concepts she learned during the tutoring sessions."
All TutorVista tutors have graduate degrees and teaching credentials. The tutors undergo weeks of intensive training and pass stringent certification exams. All tutors adhere to national and state academic standards and curricula. The competitive exam tutors for SAT, ACT, AP, PSAT and others are all top scorers in that exam.
In celebration of its launch, TutorVista is currently offering a free 1 hour tutoring trial at www.tutorvista.com.
