Here’s a look at one of the Top Ed Tech Products of 2022:
What it is: TutorMe is an online learning platform that connects students worldwide with highly qualified tutors in seconds. With over 15,000 expert tutors covering 300+ subjects, TutorMe provides 24/7 academic support to more than 1.5 million students wherever and wherever they need it most.
In under 30 seconds, a smart matching system connects learners with a robust network of seasoned subject matter experts consisting of Ivy League school upper-level students, experienced teachers, and accomplished professionals. To ensure world-class academic support, just 4% of applicants make the grade and pass rigorous background checks and knowledge exams to become qualified tutors. TutorMe also pays tutors up to 80% more than other online services, helping retain top-notch talent.
Whether it’s homework help or a study session, students work with their private tutor for a tailored 1-on-1 lesson in the advanced lesson space. The virtual classroom includes a text editor, code editor, two-way audio/video chat, screen sharing, and a virtual whiteboard for engaging lessons. Each session is archived so students can conveniently access past lessons.
TutorMe directly partners with schools and districts to help address educational equity by providing students at participating institutions with free access to quality academic support regardless of their location, income, or ability.
Why we like it: The need for individualized 1-on-1 tutoring has been magnified by the learning loss epidemic during COVID. This 24/7 online tool provides premium tutors in every subject to all students increasing equitable access to high-quality educational assistance. The teacher feedback dashboard is a great tool so that teachers can see what content students are struggling with and reinforce concepts in the classroom when students need better understanding. Using online tutors assists in the goal of personalizing learning for every student.
As always, we encourage you to perform your own due diligence before making any investments.
