Your guide to getting started
with Remind Tutoring

You may be wondering how does online tutoring work? We are here to help you find the right tutor for your child. With Remind Tutoring, you let us know which math subject your child is struggling with and we partner them with a tutor that is skilled and experienced in that area. It’s just that easy to get matched with a certified math teacher with years of classroom experience.

What to expect from your
first tutoring session

To help you understand how our online tutoring program works, we want to take you through your first session with Remind Tutoring.

BEFORE THE SESSION

A direct line to your tutor

After you sign up and schedule 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!

SETTING UP

Interactive, hands-on learning

Your child will meet with their tutor on camera and problem-solve 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.

THE FIRST SESSION

One-on-one instruction

Your tutor will start your first session by getting to know your child, introducing the subject area, setting goals, and providing a level assessment if necessary. Our online tutoring services are so effective because our tutors can build a teaching relationship with your child, helping them feel comfortable in the learning environment.

Tip: We encourage parents to attend the beginning and end of sessions to help set goals and check in on progress.

AFTER YOUR FIRST SESSION

Personal follow-up

After each session, your tutor will share a summary in your chat with strengths and growth areas, tips for review, and additional resources. This personal follow up helps our online tutoring work better by keeping parents informed and involved.

Your first session is free

After that, it's just $40 per session.
