Whether you homeschool or your kids are in public or private school, you’ve probably found yourself wishing you could afford a private tutor at one point or another. You can’t be an expert in everything, but the cost per hour most tutors charge … yikes! And if you’re a homeschooler, tutors may be busy during the day (in their day job) when you need them most. I’m happy to share that there’s a solution – an affordable online tutor for middle school through college, available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, GradeSlam!
My two kids have been using GradeSlam when they needed homeschool help for the last few weeks. It’s so easy to access a tutor! Your child can simply login and click on the subject they need help with:
Once you’ve chosen a subject, a tutor will pop right up and ask how they can help:
Then your child and the tutor can type back and forth about what they’re working on, whether it’s a paper, a concept, or a specific question. (I recommend registering under your child’s name instead of your name though, as the tutors kept calling my kids Kimberly *grin*).
I found GradeSlam especially useful because I work from home full time and don’t have the time to painstakingly go over concepts when it isn’t my strength – science and math for instance. GradeSlam can be so valuable for giving your students help in your weak subjects, or when you just don’t have large chunks of time to devote to their weak subject.
My only criticism of GradeSlam is that for math they could benefit by a whiteboard. Hopefully they will provide one in future so they don’t have to express exponents in potentially confusing ways.
If you have a child in middle school, high school, or college, you need to give this affordable online tutor a try. It would make a fantastic gift for your child starting college or university this fall! They provide tutoring in all subjects, even many foreign languages. Educents has two amazing GradeSlam specials to choose from!
3 Months of Unlimited 24/7 Online Tutoring (all subjects) for only $20 US. That’s less than half price!
