Active Learning to Create Meaningful Engagement


The Online Tutoring Essentials course is a great tool to empower your tutors to move their tutoring skills from face to face to online. I love how it provides tutors with tools they can implement immediately to make their online tutoring more personable and more active.

This is an excellent new tutor training curriculum that can be implemented immediately.
Julie Loppacher Assistant Director, Epass Tutoring, Emory University
I thought it was very beneficial! Online tutoring at the end of last semester was definitely a learning process. I feel as if the learning module explained a lot of cool features of online tutoring as well as gave good tips on how to make sure communication remains clear and open.
Kaitlyn Kastberg Tutor, Butler University
The quizzes are really strong. The answers made me reflect on the material and ensured that tutors will really read and comprehend the material.
