Online Tutoring Is A Convenient, Always-On Alternative To Hiring Tutors

My kids have always been good students and have never had problems keeping up in school. But my wife has started getting a little worried about her own ability to help them succeed since the level of math and other subjects at school has gone beyond the basics into more advanced subjects like trigonometry and calculus. She wanted me to do some research into possibly hiring a tutor to make sure the kids did not fall behind in their academic performance.

Doing some research online, I found that hiring a tutor is not really the most efficient way to get things done. The main problems are three-fold: first tutors are quite expensive. Secondly, tutors specialize in only one of two subjects. If my kids needed help with math, science, english, history and writing college essays, they would need more than one tutor to get help with all of that. Third, and most important, tutors have their own schedules into which you have to fit yours. And they are not available whenever you want them. As you well know, kids are likely to suddenly need help when they are doing their homework late at night, and they can't usually get the tutor to come immediately to help them out right away.

What I found is an alternative to traditional tutors that seems to get rid of the three disadvantages above quite well. It is an online tutor service called TutorNext. TutorNext offers very affordable subscription-based tutoring services that are available for you to use 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They also offer free online tutoring on a trial basis so that you can decide whether the technology is for you or not.

TutorNext's tutors work one-on-one with their students over the internet. Because of the one-on-one personalized nature of the lessons, students get the full attention of the tutor and can learn at their own convenience and pace. TutorNext also utilizes advanced technology that enables students and tutors to interact with each other over the internet using a virtual whiteboard and chat capabilities. An online math tutor is an interesting concept, but well worth considering given the technological advances of the past few years, making such tutoring effective and useful.

TutorNext offers tutoring in a large variety of subjects such as physics, chemistry, biology, math, english, college essay-writing, etc. Math help is subdivided into subjects like pre-algebra, algebra, precalculus, etc. They also have a math problem solver section that connects students with math tutors online to help specifically with homework issues.

So, if you are looking for a math tutor, or a tutor for any other subject for your school or college kids, TutorNext is a solution worth considering. Their low cost and 24-hour availability make them ideal for today's connected world where timings are fluid and change constantly. And in today's competitive world, tutoring can give your kids a leg up over their classmates in both school and college.
