Tutor.com, one of the world's largest and most innovative online tutoring organizations, announced a partnership today with the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education to allow Oklahoma’s 25 public institutions the ability to partner with Tutor.com to provide online, on-demand tutoring for students.
The Tutor.com partnership provides a unique, pre-negotiated agreement that will allow Oklahoma public institutions to easily implement 24/7, individualized tutoring. Through the partnership, 126,000 students across 25 institutions have the potential to access one-to-one expert tutoring in 250+ subjects, along with drop-off review services, test prep resources from The Princeton Review®, practice quizzes, and other supports. Institutions using Tutor.com benefit from a custom implementation that provides single sign-on access through their learning management system (LMS). In addition to the supports available for students, administrators gain access to real-time early alerts, along with reports and analytics through the Client Portal.
“It is an honor to support Oklahoma higher education institutions and students,” said Sandi White, Chief Institutional Officer at Tutor.com/The Princeton Review. “We are proud to count eighteen Oklahoma colleges and universities among our partners, and look forward to continuing to drive student success across the state.”
Tutor.com, which was launched in 2000 and has delivered more than 25 million tutoring sessions, has a track record of helping higher education institutions increase student pass and persistence rates. Dr. Marc A. Willis, Vice President of Academic Affairs at Carl Albert State College, noted the impact that Tutor.com has had: “Tutor.com has improved the access to 24/7 coverage for CASC students over an incredibly wide range of subject areas. The student experience is more personal than expected, and the feedback to our administrators, faculty, and support personnel is even better than expected. Support from Tutor.com has been excellent, and implementation was refreshingly hands-off and easy.”
Award-winning for its proprietary academic platform LEO® and for its best-in-class client support, Tutor.com promises to help Oklahoma higher education institutions provide equitable support, particularly for students who need one-to-one tutoring after hours. Tutor.com’s 24/7 online tutoring reaches all students at their moment of need.
