Who we are and what we do
Tutor.com is the #1 online homework help and tutoring service. How do we know that? Well, we have more than 4.5 million tutoring sessions under our belt, have thousands of tutors online 24/7, and students tell us that we've helped them get their schoolwork done, feel more confident about school, and improve their grades.
How Tutor.com Started
In 1998, a small group of passionate education and tech professionals led by George Cigale (our CEO) had a terrific URL and a big ideaâ€”use the Internet to connect students to tutors for tutoring at anytime from anywhere. So, they recruited about a hundred tutors and created one of the first online, interactive classrooms. Today, we have thousands of tutors helping students with everything from homework and projects to studying and test prep.
Helping students with any subject, anytime
Students today have a lot going on between homework and studying, extracurricular activities and responsibilities at home. That's why Tutor.com is available on-demand. If you need help factoring a polynomial at midnight, you can connect to an algebra tutor. Or, if you need help balancing a chemical equation before school, you can work with a chemistry tutor. Any subject, any time, we can help because our tutors are always availableâ€”you never need an appointment.
Thousands of professional tutors
Our tutors are real peopleâ€”they've all been through high school and know what it's like to be stuck on homework. And, to become a tutor, they each had to undergo an extensive screening, certification and background-check process.
We serve families, libraries, schools, community colleges, corporations and even governors
In addition to our direct-to-consumer service, we also offer the Tutor.com Learning Suite for libraries, K-12 schools, community colleges and businesses, with one-to-one learning solutions for students of all ages. The Learning Suite features services for K-12 students, college students and adult learners, including, Live Homework Help, our award-winning service that connects a student to a professional tutor in a secure online classroom, ProofPoint, the ultimate writing and proofreading service and SkillsCenter Resource Library, a robust library of worksheets, videos and sample problems that further a student's subject comprehension. Tutor.com also powers two statewide, governor-supported initiatives: HomeworkKansas and HomeworkAlabama.
