How online tutoring works

Your guide to getting started with Remind Tutoring

You'll let us know what your child needs help with, and we'll partner them with a tutor with skills and experience in that area. Getting matched is just that easy.

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.

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. Remind Tutoring is so effective because our tutors 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 caregivers informed and involved.

Your first session is free

After that, you'll be matched with a tutor for a weekly session.*
Each session is just $40.

* Continue with your tutor or work with any of our tutors, cancel sessions as needed to fit your schedule, reschedule sessions up to 24 hours in advance, live chat for any questions or issues.
