Updated on June 25, 2011

Back to school time can be a lot of fun for kids, but it can also be a very stressful time.

As children transition from one grad level to another, they are often find difficulty keeping up with assignments or mastering the information presented in some of their classes. When this happens, finding an online tutor to help your child master material that he or she is finding difficult can be quite beneficial.

Online tutoring services are available for all grade levels and subjects. With an online tutoring company, children will have an opportunity to work with a professional tutor in a one-on-one online setting. Tutors can provide kids with additional instruction on subjects they are struggling with, homework assistance, help preparing for tests, and more. There's no reason to let your kids struggle on their own when getting the help they need from an online is really just a click away!

There are a number of online tutoring companies. Some offer tutoring on an hourly basis, while others provide unlimited access to tutoring assistance for a monthly or quarterly subscription fee. Many offer access to tutors 24 hours per day, seven days per week, while others offer specific hours for tutoring. Be sure to thoroughly check out any company that you are considering so that you have a clear understanding of services provided, availability of services, and how charges are incurred.

Examples of Online Tutoring Companies

A few examples of companies that you may want to check out when looking for an online tutoring service provider include:

Choosing an Online Tutoring Company

Consider asking teachers at your child's schools or parents who have kids about the same age as yours if they have had experience with any online tutoring services. Referrals from people you know can be a great way to find out which companies may best meet your needs and to keep from choosing a provider that people you know may have had a negative experience with.

Of course, you may not be able to find people in your personal network who have worked with an online tutoring company that you are considering hiring. In this situation, research the company as best you can. Ask for references of current and former customers. Look closely at the tutoring company's website and conduct an online search for the company to see if customers have posted feedback about the organization.
