    What is the EduwizardS Custom Tutoring Program for institutions?

    EduwizardS is the leading provider of online tutoring for both K-12 and College. Students connect to live tutors from any computer that has Internet access. We provide online tutoring 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
    EduwizardS can develop a custom academic support program for any school or college. The client chooses the subject(s) to be tutored, the number of hours, the times when online tutors should be available, and the curriculum to follow. We build the program according to the clientís requirements.


    Why should your institution use this program?

    With the help of this program, institutions can provide the students with high quality tutoring support. The students are able to avail this help from anywhere and at a time convenient to them, thus enabling them to get help when they need it. For the institution it helps in reducing facilities costs since the tutoring is online and helps in better management of the college tutoring programs.


    How do students and tutors interact?

    Students communicate with tutors using a virtual classroom, which includes whiteboard, text chat and voice communication. Mathematical formulas, theorems and examples symbols, geometric figures, etc can be explained quickly and easily teaching a subject as per need Students work in real-time with a tutor; take instant sessions or schedule sessions with a tutor of their choice.


    Is the tutoring One-on-one?

    Eduwizards One-on-one online tutoring is genuinely One-on-one. A Single student will be present in the virtual classroom (with the tutor) and will always have tutorís full attention. That also means that under no circumstances will the tutor ever be interacting with more than one student (on two different virtual-classrooms/whiteboards etc.).
    Note: At request of client, we also offer one-to-many classroom style teaching, with voice of course. The teacher and student are present in one virtual classroom (which includes whiteboard, voice, and text chat), and tutor are present and they can see each otherís presence (in attendee list). Students "raise hands" in whiteboard software to draw the instructor's attention. Again, this is fully transparent and is being done because the client wants this system and does NOT want one-on-one. We are able to offer schools and colleges instructors with whatever qualifications the client needs for classroom style one-to-many teaching: state certification, Ph.D., or any other particular qualification or experience.


    Is the tutoring session with or without voice communication?

    EduwizardS Online Tutoring ALWAYS includes voice chat (along with whiteboard and text-chat). We believe that online tutoring without the voice option is a hindrance to both student and tutor.


    Why does EduwizardS consider voice communication to be an essential part of online tutoring?

    We find voice essential for the same simple reason that voice is important in face-to-face tutoring. Try a tutoring session in an academic subject in the brick-and-mortar world, where the tutor and student are not allowed to discuss in voice, and you will see what we mean. If a tutor cannot use voice to explain, and the student cannot use voice to clarify doubts, then the quality of online tutoring greatly suffers compared to normal voice tutoring in the brick-and-mortar world.

    EduwizardS CAUTIONS against choosing a company that does not include voice in online tutoring, unless you fully understand their reasons for not having voice. Companies have reasons to NOT use voice which could include one or all of these reasons (a) company is technologically-backward (b) company has one tutor simultaneously take on multiple non-voice sessions (yes, unfortunately this is actually happening at some companies) (c) company makes use of the fact that, with voice being cut off, explaining takes much longer (and company charges by time used).

    Online tutoring without voice wastes a studentís time. The non-voice handicap makes the session go twice as long as it would with voice.


    How does EduwizardS ensure the quality of tutors?

    EduwizardS features the world's best online tutors, ranked and reviewed by students. Most other online tutoring websites continue with mediocre tutors for years, and which students get the good tutors is generally a matter of luck. At EduwizardS the best tutors are clearly identified by the students themselves. We believe the most effective way of identifying top tutors is by actual review of tutors by students. All reviews are openly posted. Using these reviews and other information, a student can choose which tutor he/she wants.


    What subjects and levels do you cover?

    Besides the common K-12 and College subjects such as Mathematics, Science, and English our large team of experienced and qualified subject matter experts enables us to provide tutoring for all levels and ALL subjects. Doing Tutor Search will show the vast expertise of our tutors.


    Is Eduwizards Blackboard compatible?

    Yes, we offer access via Blackboard.


    How does EduwizardS handle privacy issues?

    EduwizardS ensures the privacy of all students using our service. We never disclose any information about an individual student to outside party. For more information please see our full Privacy Policy.


    What kind of training and support do tutors receive?

    For our institutional clients, we have a special training program for our tutors based on the details of client, including the levels and courses covered. Tutors pass through a rigorous screening test and then must complete a training program (developed by our in-house training team, based upon the requirements and specifications of the client). The tutors are trained on student management and course-specific pedagogy. This ensures a standard teaching methodology and helps in meeting the learning objectives better. The training program helps them develop their skills as online academic coaches. The tutors are provided with various resources to constantly improve their tutoring services and student reviews of tutors are openly posted on our website.


    Who are your tutors?

    EduwizardS tutors are experienced teaching professionals. A Bachelorís degree is the bare minimum requirement to become an EduwizardS tutor; however, most of our tutors have further advanced degrees in their fields. Our tutors include college faculty, high school teachers, retired educators and other subject experts. Open and regular evaluation of the tutors by students helps in maintaining quality and consistency in our services.


    What time will the tutors be available?

    Since EduwizardS is operational 24/7, we can fill any need. We could arrange fixed times for weekdays and weekends where our tutors will be available online and your students can take sessions within those times. We offer scheduled sessions, where the student must book a session 24 hours in advance as well as Instant Tutoring where students can drop in and take tutoring with tutors currently online.


    Does EduwizardS provide testing as a means to track student progress?

    Yes, EduwizardS aims to supplement online tutoring with continuous online assessment. We have a proprietary online testing (assessment) system, with a huge database of questions covering all grade levels. If needed, our experts can rapidly build more questions for an individual group of students or for a particular subject.


    What is the pricing plan for schools and colleges?

    EduwizardS offers tutoring at a very reasonable cost; however for a detailed plan please click here to fill in your requirement and we will get back to you with a detailed pricing plan customized according to your needs.


    How does my school or college purchase a custom tutoring program?

    A college or school can purchase a block of tutoring hours for its students to use. As the students keep using the tutoring services, EduwizardS deducts time from the college's account. We can also offer other purchase and payment methods. We have a special offer for all first time users.
