COVID-19 | Online Tutoring


In case you were wondering...

Below are some frequently asked questions about Inspire. Feel free to call with any additional questions.

How do I know if tutoring is right for me or my child?

If your student is struggling, it is time to get help. An effective tutor can zero in on the student's strengths and weaknesses, and quickly pinpoint any problem areas. There really is no substitute for the guidance and support a professional tutor can provide.

When should I request a tutor?

If you are interested in having a tutor for personal growth, you can begin at any time. If you or your student are struggling, do not wait. Classes typically build on themselves, and get progressively more difficult. Specialized tutoring can zero in on the individual needs of the student, and help set the foundation for success going forward. If you student is not happy with her current grade, or is not passing, it might not be too late to turn things around. Call Inspire to discuss your individual situation.

Where does the tutoring take place?

All tutoring is one at the student's home or office, or at a location of your choice. Inspire now also offers 100% virtual tutoring

Will we see the same tutor each week?

Yes. Consistency is important when students are struggling. If tutoring for more than one subject is needed, we may assign different tutors to best meet the student's needs. We make every effort to assign a tutor who will be available as long as you need her!

Do you work with charter schools?
