  • Tutors are subject matter experts trained in how to translate tutoring best practices and learning strategies to support students online, one student at a time.
  • Tutors possess at least a bachelor's degree, although many have advanced degrees.
  • Tutors use the "Socratic Method" during sessions to prompt dialogue with their student as opposed to delivering answers.
  • Questions are carefully chosen by the tutor based on their knowledge of the subject matter and Bloom's taxonomy.
  • They are also trained to help reinforce and clarify material already learned in the classroom.
