Online Reading Tutoring

Online reading tutoring delivered to your child by experienced, tested, & relatable Ivy-League tutors. Our online tutoring platform features video chat, text chat, and a dynamic whiteboard that allows both the tutor and his or her student to collaborate on lessons. Your child can ask questions and request explanations while the tutor teaches in real time.

Our online tutoring can be taught at all major grade levels from K - 12 to undergraduate and graduate students. Our online tutors are rigorously tested & screened before we hire them to ensure that we can offer your young student nothing but the best. It's our guarantee that you'll absolutely love your child's online tutor, or you don't pay. Period.

Our online reading tutors are flexible! When you sign up with TutorNerd online tutoring, we work closely with you to come up with a personalized online tutoring schedule that fits your child's needs. If you need to cancel and/or reschedule, we'll work with you to figure out the next best time. Our online tutoring is usually conducted at least once a week for at least an hour; however, if you feel as though your child needs more help than that, we can absolutely oblige!


How Effective Is Online Tutoring?

While online tutoring lacks some of the bells and whistles that make in-person tutoring successful, our online tutoring platform compensates for that with its ease of use & many features. Online tutoring provides a convenient, flexible, and safe environment for both the student and the tutor. This high level of convenience relaxes the student and makes it easier to focus on the lesson at hand.

Another benefit of online tutoring is the ability to take advantage of readily available technology in real time. With in-person tutoring, it only makes sense to utilize what's already in the room wherein the tutoring is taking place; with online tutoring, student and tutor can collaborate with Google Docs, Skype, Zoom, screen shares, and other tools that can aid in online learning. These tools can improve the tutoring experience for the student moreso than what a tutor can do for a student in-person.

With TutorNerd online reading tutoring, expect that your young student will receive these benefits and then some. Our tutors are friendly and well-versed in the subjects they teach. If you don't absolutely love your child's online tutor, you don't pay. Period.


Online and Private Tutoring

How Does Online Tutoring Work?

Here's how online reading tutoring works here at TutorNerd:

  • We call you and you tell us exactly what your child needs
  • We listen carefully & attentively to your needs
  • We personally match your child with one of our tutors based on what you tell us
  • We work with you to come up with a comprehensive, personalized tutoring schedule
  • Your child's grades start improving
That's it! No hassles or having to guess and take chances on a tutor you don't know. Most other tutoring companies present you with a list of tutors they contract (not hire) and make you pick one yourself, meaning you have to take a chance on that tutor and hope that he or she will help your child's grades improve.

Here, we have experienced academic directors who guide you through the entire process. Think of it like a matchmaking service for online tutoring: we only match your child with the most compatible online tutor!

“For me, learning is one of the most satisfying experiences you can have, and being a part of someone else's "eureka!" moment is a close second. One thing that draws me to tutoring is the idea that every individual learns in a different way. I enjoy trying to tailor my lessons to my students, so that they can see the most progress in their studies. Learning is a skill we need all throughout life, so knowing how to do it efficiently will prove immensely beneficial. ”

“From my own education, I have noticed that sincerity has been the distinction between a great and poor teacher. I have a strong passion for the the sciences. I love tutoring because I can help students gain a similar appreciation once they understand the material better. And I find that with every session, I, myself, also gain a deeper understanding of science through teaching it.”

“Tutoring is perhaps one of the most enriching and stimulating professions out there, especially for a college student like me. I have worked with so many amazing students over the years, and have developed personal relationships with many students and families in my community. Not only have I helped these students achieve academic and personal success, but I have also benefited from their acquaintance in more ways than I can count. ”

“I became an educator because I love to teach. I think one of the most important things I can do is to show students how much bigger and more interesting the world is than what they've already experienced, and teaching history and English provides a way to do that. I am passionate about tutoring because, when I can work with students in a one on one context, it is easier for them to interact with the material, ask questions, take the necessary time to think through the difficult concepts, and ultimately learn than it is for them to do those things in a crowded classroom. When I can see students make progress and enjoy learning, it makes me more excited to work with them.”

“We can't all be great at everything and that's frustrating. Even among high achievers, it's hard to admit that a challenging subject doesn't come as easy as others. These looming roadblocks tend to become the subjects students "hate" - an unfortunate and avoidable fate if the dread is faced and eased. Too many times writing and English are labeled as hated subjects because they're over-thought and allowed to turn into giants that haunt students. So many of the students I tutor already know what they want to say, but simply need the right kind of help, and the right tools, to move them past their fear. The confidence they gain when they realize what they're capable of communicating through writing is incredible! (And, I truly love hearing back from clients, excited to share with me that they got into the college, grad program, or job to which I helped them apply!)”

“I am passionate about tutoring because I enjoy being part of the education journey with the student. I see my duty as showing the student how to understand and solve problems. I do not give the answers to the student because there are always new concepts and subjects to learn. The important part of tutoring is to guide the student to think in a step-by-step process to come to an understanding and solution of the subject. When the student shows they want to learn and puts in the effort to come to an understanding and mastery of the subject; it is a win-win situation for both the student and me, as the tutor.”
