Before your first session, you’ll be connected with your tutor through our online communication system, Remind Chat. You can share homework examples and other details to help them get to know your child.
Tip: Create a student account for your child to get them involved in the conversation.
Your child will meet with their tutor on camera and work through problems on screen. We recommend using two devices: a computer for the video call and a large touchscreen device for the interactive whiteboard.
Tip: Remind Tutoring also works on just one device–check out some alternative setups we recommend.
Your tutor will start your first session by getting to know your child, introducing the subject area, and providing a level assessment if necessary. Remind Tutoring pairs students with the tutor over time to help them gain confidence and build positive learning habits.
Tip: Parents are encouraged to attend the beginning and end of sessions to help set goals and check in on progress.
After each session, your tutor will share a personal summary in your chat with strengths and growth areas, tips for review, and other helpful resources. Online tutoring is most effective when everyone is on the same page and stays informed and involved.
Tip: Weekly sessions with your tutor allow your child to address immediate needs as well as build on progress over time.
Strong, consistent relationships transform learning. That’s why Remind tutors have a 4.74 average rating.
