TutorVista.com is a new website that specializes in helping students of all ages receive help with their homework, with studying, or with any traditional school subject they feel they are having difficulty with.
How Does It Work?
This website serves students all the way from the Kindergarten level through to College and high learning level courses, depending on what your personal needs are. To see what subjects they offer help with, users can select a major subject, from Math, Physics, Science, Grammar, English, Chemistry, and Biology, and see where you can go from there.
The website says that their tutoring sessions are conducted live and online in secure areas, where the students and tutors interact using a virtual whiteboard workspace, which allows them to draw, write, and share problems, in combination with a chat box that is being used exclusively by them.
This system only requires a standard computer and internet service - no special equipment or software will be needed.
Subscription fees for this service are dependent on the level of subject your student needs help with and the length of time for which they would like to have tutoring access. This means that their subscription fees range from $49.99 for one week of unlimited tutoring at the K-12 level, to $374.99 for three months of unlimited tutoring at the College level.
If users cancel their subscription within the first 30 days of their service contract, they will be provided with a prorated refund for the time remaining on their subscription. Users who wish to cancel after the 30 day time period will not be offered a refund.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact their Customer Service team can submit any questions, concerns, or complaints by phone at 888-972-9495 or by email at [email protected]
Unfortunately this service seems to have a large number of users who are unhappy with their service, claiming that "unlimited" tutoring is not really unlimited because tutors for your subject are not always available.
