Math is a progressive subject. The knowledge attained in one year, must be integrated and applied to the next unit of study. If a student loses his/her grasp on each year's curriculum, it will be nearly impossible to go forward without first learning and understanding the previous year's curriculum. This is when students need our help the most. Our certified and highly experienced educators specialize in getting students back on track. With a personalized approach, our tutors pinpoint strengths and weaknesses and provide enrichment that will not only keep students from falling behind, but will spring them ahead. Many parents also struggle with helping their son or daughter with math. The recorded sessions create a library that serve as a reference for the entire family and supports parents in their efforts to work with their children as well.

RECORDED SESSIONS FOR PLAYBACK
Each student gets to create their own academic library. Recorded tutoring sessions are an ideal way to preview material before a lesson and review information to prepare for an assessment. This library, also available to parents and school administrators, creates accountability and is an excellent way to monitor the student’s progress.
Since there is no commuting involved, tutors are available way beyond the usual time-frame and can accommodate a child’s ever-growing busy schedule! This can be particularly helpful for young athletes and students involved in after-school activities.
Another wonderful benefit of online tutoring is that parents do not need to be home to supervise. So not only does iTutor suit the student’s schedule, but it finally frees up the parents to set up tutoring at anytime!
While not always immediately obvious to all of us, the issue of personal space is an important dynamic in the tutor-student relationship. As students mature into adulthood they are navigating the unfamiliar territory of leaving childhood behind and approaching their future in the adult world. As we all know, the pre-teen and teenage years are filled with awkward moments of exploring one’s identity and their new and changing relationships to authority. Self-advocacy and individuation become increasingly important parts of their development and respected boundaries of personal space become a crucial feature in the young adult’s life in order to feel comfortable and safe. Well-meaning tutors leaning over a student’s notebook or sitting right next to them at the kitchen table can feel a little overwhelming to some students. The space students have in online tutoring fosters a sense of control and independence and the student gets to feel as comfortable as possible in their own home or in any other learning environment they choose.
There are few things more exciting and engaging for young people today than technology. As tutors share videos, documents and fun anecdotes across the interactive whiteboard, students engage effortlessly through a medium they are all too well acquainted with.
Online tutoring eliminates the concern of spreading germs from student to teacher and teacher to student. As some students need to be particularly careful about their environment, iTutor offers them a wonderful way to not only maintain their credits, but to stay engaged.
