Care.com is a one-stop-shop for any kind of care need such as child care, senior care, pet care, housekeeping, and, of course, tutoring. In its list of tutors, Care.com showcases profiles of tutors who are available for online or in-person services. The average price of online tutors is $17.25, which is relatively low compared to other similar services. Unfortunately, the company does not appear to have any kind of system or technological tools to help in the tutoring process. Additionally, the tutor qualifications required by Care.com and the number of grade levels tutored by the featured tutors are unknown.
The greatest aspect of Care.com is the low price. Care.com claims that the average price of their online tutors is $17.25 per hour. This is much lower than most companies in the industry; this is only the average, so parents and students may be able to find tutors for cheaper than advertised.
Care.com allows customers to select their own tutor. The company features profiles of individual tutors which includes their rate, age, and amount of experience. The full profile typically features what subjects the tutor can help out with and where he or she is located.

I like that this provides me a more secure and narrow search for tutors for my son. This is more convenient to interact with the right person and I'm excited to see how well he's progressed thanks to this app. I only recommend lowering the cost of the premium.
