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.
