Will you be traveling this summer but don’t want your child to miss out on tutoring or test prep? Have you had a difficult time finding a local tutor for a particular test or academic subject? Boston Tutoring Services is excited to offer WizIQ technology for online tutoring, which can be used in your home or on the go.
WizIQ technology utilizes screen sharing, an online whiteboard, and allows uploading teaching materials for shared use. The program’s shared whiteboard feature allows tutors and students to collaborate on mathematical equations, essays, and other materials together, making it more engaging and interactive than other simple video share programs. WizIQ technology is easy to use for students as young as elementary school.
You can choose the best tutor fit for your child regardless of location. No commuting means you can pick tutors from across the state. If your child will be away this summer, whether for a week, a month, or the entirety of school break, you can receive the same top notch one-on-one services.
Tutors and students can:
- engage through live audio and video chat
- share whiteboards, which allow them to solve math equations with math symbols and draw using the drawing tools, just like they would in a classroom
- upload worksheets and materials for shared use on the virtual software; parents can monitor content usage and update library
- share use of PowerPoint presentations, PDFs, Word documents, videos from YouTube and/or multimedia content from the web
- can record the class as it happens, to download and review the session again later
- assign students online practice tests and homework to supplement test preparation; students take tests online and tutors can score them in real time
- create personalized materials for your child to provide resources for students to use between sessions
- send email reminders automatically to students so they don’t forget to attend. No downloading of software is necessary, and students can easily log in through secure URL
Online tutoring can be a great opportunity for your child to receive the same tutoring services anywhere in the world, any time of day. There is no extra charge to use WizIQ technology for some or all of your tutoring sessions. Contact us now to learn more about how online tutoring can make the most of your child’s summer.
