No In-Person Tutoring
With Tutor.com students can access their tutors online 24/7. However, Tutor.com does not provide in-person tutoring options. Students seeking to meet with a tutor in-person will need to seek other options.
Tutor.com does not offer as many technological tools as many of their competitors. They do not offer resources such as live chat (audio or text), shared whiteboard space, file sharing, and video conferences.
The Bottom Line
Tutor.com received several awards in the past and offers services to a large selection of grade levels. They also offer a substantial collection of subjects. Like many tutoring services students only have access to tutors online. Tutor.com offers fewer technological tools than many competitors. Though their prices are average for the industry, we recommend that customers explore other options to ensure they find the service that best meets their needs.
