TutorMe levels the academic playing field by offering quality academic support to all students, regardless of location, time of day, or financial resources. The edtech company’s primary business model of partnering with schools and districts is rooted in its equity-driven mission and designed to ensure that ability to pay is never a barrier for students. To attract and retain the most qualified tutors, TutorMe pays as much as 80% more than competing services and only accepts the top 4% of candidates.
Covering more than 300 subjects and spanning from kindergarten to graduate school, TutorMe connects students with tutors in a matter of seconds. Students and tutors can then get right to work, using the full suite of teaching and learning tools the platform makes available, including virtual whiteboards, a text editor, audio/video chat, screen sharing, a code editor and more.
For students who need help with writing assignments, TutorMe offers its Writing Lab, which allows them to submit their work for review and feedback. Within an hour on average, an expert writing tutor will respond with editorial feedback, tips, and writing strategies they can take to improve their next assignment as well.
An administrator dashboard gives partner schools the data and analytical tools to identify student usage trends and areas to improve on, even offering insights on course design.
In a 2020 survey, more than 98% of responding parents and students said they would recommend TutorMe. The company’s university partners report a 40% increase in student engagement, and the platform had an industry-leading Net Promoter Score of 76. The company recently earned a Cool Tool Award for “Best Tutoring Solution” (finalist) as part of The EdTech Awards 2021 program, and co-founder and CEO Myles Hunter was recognized with an EdTech Leadership Award for “Founder/CEO – Startup”.
