The New Hampshire Department of Education (NHDoE) has expanded its partnership with Tutor.com to increase statewide access to around-the-clock individualized expert tutoring.
With the expansion, Tutor.com is now available to upper elementary students in grades four and five, as well as adult learners prepping for the GED and HiSET, the exams used to award high school equivalency diplomas. The state noted that in total, nearly 130,000 learners – including public, non-public, charter, Education Freedom Account, and home education students – benefit from the service, which is available on-demand and at no cost to the student.
“We have seen the value of tutoring for students, families, and educators,” said Frank Edelblut, New Hampshire’s education commissioner. “We are thrilled to expand this service to support even more students, and expect that this initiative will have a beneficial impact on student learning, family engagement, and educator assistance.”
Tutoring is available in 209 subjects, including elementary math, reading, social studies, and vocabulary, as well as AP subjects. Additionally, individualized tutoring for English learners as well as bilingual tutoring in Spanish are available. The state explained that students typically connect to a tutor in about a minute, and they may choose to communicate with their tutors via text-chat or two-way voice.
Through Tutor.com’s platform, learners also have access to additional forms of academic support beyond tutoring, including drop-off writing review services, self-paced test prep from The Princeton Review, practice quizzes, video lessons, and other learning resources.
NHDoE explained in a press release that Tutor.com has been integrating with the learning management systems (LMS) of districts and schools across the state so that students can log in with a single sign-on. The state also noted that students not affiliated with a school, or students whose schools have not integrated their LMS with Tutor.com, can create individual accounts to access the program.
