Round-the-Clock Online Tutoring for South Orange & Maplewood Students

Partnership Provides Unlimited 24/7 Academic Support for Learners in Grades 3 Through 12

Tutor.com, one of the world’s largest and most innovative online tutoring organizations, announced today that it has been selected by the South Orange & Maplewood School District to provide round-the-clock online tutoring for students in grades 3 through 12 at no cost to them. Through the partnership, expert tutors are available 24/7, and 1-to-1 tutoring for each student is unlimited.

We applaud SOMSD for their commitment to providing equitable, individualized tutoring for students districtwide, said Sandi White, Chief Institutional Officer at Tutor.com and The Princeton Review. We have seen the impact that on-demand support has on student achievement, and we are dedicated to providing expert help—anytime, anywhere—that gives students agency to achieve their educational goals.

“One of the most effective ways to enhance instruction and student achievement is through tutoring. This partnership is making tutoring more available than ever, and that is completely aligned with our efforts to build greater equity among our students and their ability to achieve academic success,” said Dr. Ronald Taylor, Superintendent of the Schools of South Orange and Maplewood. “This would not be possible without the efforts of our Information Technology Department successfully providing all of our students with Chromebooks and internet access during the pandemic shutdown. I want to thank them, Assistant Superintendent Ann Bodnar, and our Curriculum and Instruction Team for their efforts in making this resource available to so many of our students.”

The program features include:

  • 24/7 online, on-demand access to expert tutors, 361 days of the year
  • Expert tutors available in 200+ subjects, including English Language Arts, algebra, calculus, physics, chemistry, world languages, computer science, and more
  • Tutors also available for Advanced Placement® and International Baccalaureate® courses as well as PSAT/NMSQT®, SAT®, and ACT® prep
  • Drop-off review of students’ writing assignments
  • Spanish-speaking tutors for math, science, writing, social studies, and study skills subjects
  • Individualized help available to reinforce student success study and life skills such as time management, stress management, and notetaking
  • Test prep from The Princeton Review®, along with self-study practice quizzes and video lessons

Students will be able to access Tutor.com by signing in to their Google accounts and clicking on the Tutor.com icon that will appear in the group of icons at the top of the screen commonly referred to as “the waffle.” Tutor.com will be available to students on the first day of classes, Thursday, September 7.
