In the last few years the tutoring business has exploded! With teachers overwhelmed and overburdened by all their duties inside and outside of the classroom, parents and students have turned to the help of private tutors and supplemental education. Some parents do this as a way for their child to get ahead or just stay current with their studies.
Students are also overwhelmed with not only their academic responsibilities but trying to balance extracurricular activities and their home and social lives as well. As a result of busy schedules but still needing to fit in time with a tutor for additional assistance, the rise of online tutoring is overwhelming!
Parents are finding it easy and effective for their student to meet in an online classroom and have a personal tutor work with them from the convenience of their own home. By meeting â€˜onlineâ€™ parents save on time, running around and fuel without having to sacrifice their studentâ€™s learning.
Students feel much less intimidated and comfortable working online with a tutor. It also is a time saver for them and allows them to focus right on the help they need. Because they are meeting from their own home, the likelihood of having to cancel or running late for a session almost never happen.
As hiremyparents is all about offering parents choice and flexibility this seems like an ideal service to add for our members. We are currently talking to 3rd party providers about discounts for our members and will soon be adding an option for tutors to offer their services directly to parents who post requests, just as businesses currently do to our parent members.
