TutorMe, the online tutor of the future, today announced a partnership with the Allendale County School District in South Carolina to provide free online tutoring to all 1,150 students who attend its four schools: Allendale Elementary School, Fairfax Elementary School, Allendale-Fairfax Middle School, and Allendale-Fairfax High School.
Since 2017, Allendale County Schools Superintendent Dr. Margaret Gilmore has been focused on increasing the successful outcomes of the district’s students, all of whom qualify for free and reduced lunch.
“When evaluating and selecting resources that would further the achievement of our students and help them reach their academic goals, TutorMe stood out as an effective online tutoring program because the platform gives our students access to a live tutor within 30 seconds,” shared Dr. Gilmore. “As a Superintendent, it is comforting to know that our students will have this resource whenever they need help at any time of day. We were especially impressed with the interactive lesson space making tutoring engaging.”
TutorMe’s tutors are available 24×7, 365 days a year. Lessons are conducted via video chat, screen sharing, and virtual whiteboards that are archived for future reference. TutorMe’s services are also ADA compliant and tutors experienced with special needs students are available.
“Feedback from TutorMe users indicates that when students have the help of a highly-qualified tutor, they never feel lost or alone, and they gain the confidence they need to succeed in school,” said TutorMe co-founder and CEO Myles Hunter. “We accomplish this by providing accessible, effective, and engaging tutoring that meets each individual student where they are in their development.”
TutorMe is the online tutor of the future—as a leading provider of online tutoring, the platform connects students with highly-qualified tutors in, on average, less than 30 seconds. TutorMe provides instruction via video chat, screen sharing, and virtual whiteboards archived for future reference. They work with learners and parents from K-12 to higher education, either directly or through partnerships with academic institutions or via employer-provided benefits.
