How Online Tutoring Works

How Online Tutoring Works

  • An Enrollment Coordinator calls to answer questions, choose an appropriate program and schedule the student’s weekly sessions.
  • Next, parents are connected with an Education Manager to discuss student learning goals and any other pertinent issues.
  • Students take a diagnostic test* online and begin sessions with a dedicated tutor.
  • Working with the assigned tutor, the Education Manager develops a personalized student learning plan.
  • Sessions are conducted with Skype’s Voice-over-IP service and Growing Stars’ online whiteboard.
  • Students use a computer-attachable tablet to write on the whiteboard, as well as a headset to enhance online voice communication.
  • Tutors teach from the same textbooks that students use in school.
  • Students can access lesson plans, instructional materials, tests and tutor comments at our Student Portal.
  • Free, additional homework help is also available to math students enrolled in our 8-hour/month programs.
  • The Education Manager holds periodic conferences with parents to discuss student progress and share feedback.
  • With our Parent Portal, parents may access progress reports from the tutor or Education Manager, as well as lesson plans and test results.

* Diagnostic tests and free homework help are available to students in our math subjects only.
