How does online tutoring work? Growing Stars works with parents and students to select and schedule a program that fits their goals and develop a personalized learning plan. After taking a diagnostic test online, students begin their sessions with an assigned online tutor. Tutoring sessions are conducted using Skype and a computer-attachable tablet as well as the same textbooks that students use in school.
Growing Stars students work with the same online tutor for every session, a system that enables the tutor to identify and help students with their individual strengths and weaknesses. All of Growing Stars’ expert online tutors go through extensive training before being assigned to a student. All online tutors have Bachelor’s degrees and most have a Master’s degree in their field. Students and parents also work with an Education Manager who will adapt Growing Stars’ programs to suit the child’s individual needs. Furthermore, parents have access to a Parent Portal for up-to-date progress reports.
