5 Reasons Why You Should Consider Using a Tutoring App

by | Mar 19, 2019 | Tutoring

In today’s day and age, everything has become digital. From watching the latest movies online, to being placed into realistic scenarios thanks to VR technology. Everything has converted and guess what? So has tutoring! Long are the days of heading to your local tutoring center or to the library down the road. Now, all you need is a phone or tablet where you can download a tutoring app like tútit and have the service right at your finger tips.  So why should you (or your child) make the switch? Find out below:

1. The Abundance of Tutors Available to Meet Your Specific Needs


Long are the days of having to find a local tutor that matches your needs in school and just as importantly, your learning style! With a virtual tutor, like one from tútit (which is available for download on the App Store and Google Play!), you don’t have to cross your fingers and hope that you will find a great tutor who can truly help. Instead, with the vast array of tutors you can access by just picking up your phone and requesting a session, the choice has never been simpler! Regardless of the distance between you and your tutor, you will still receive an excellent tutoring session via phone or tablet! 


2. You Only Pay for What You Need


Has there ever been a time where you just simply need help with one question or concept? You know, when the problem is mind-boggling and you can’t seem to wrap your head around it (which takes up more time than answering the question itself). With a traditional tutor, you typically would be forced to pay for a whole session, even if you have just one small trouble area. Not fair, right? Plus, these sessions typically last for an hour and cost $$$. On the flip side, if you choose a tutoring app like us, you pay by the minute, not hour! So, if all you need is 15 minutes to reach that “ah-ha” moment, than that’s all you have to pay for! Saving you time and money, both things we need more of!


3. Get Help Any Time, Any Day


Imagine this: 


It is 12:29 A.M. Oh yes, a good old midnight study session. Let’s also say that you are studying for your Calculus test tomorrow (for the first time!). Working through the problems, you can’t seem to understand or solve this one equation but you have to figure it out because you remember your teacher saying it would show up on the exam. Yes, maybe you should have started studying earlier, but it’s too late now and getting help from a traditional tutor is out of the question. Most of your friends in the class are already sound asleep so that isn’t an option either. So what’s there to do? Well, you could google it and try to figure out the complicated explanations from a million different sites, or, you could log onto your tutoring app!


This is one of the best parts of using a tutor! If homework or study help strikes last minute or you wish you had your teacher in front of you while working to explain one little thing again, a virtual tutor is the perfect replacement! In apps like tútit, all you have to do is get on, request a session in the topic area you are looking for help in and boom! Soon, a tutor will be there to save the day!


4. Less Face-to-Face Means More Confidence to Seek Help!


Maybe we are embarrassed and think our questions will be stupid or maybe we are just too shy to ask them, whichever reason it is, virtual tutoring provides a level of anonymity which may make the student more comfortable to ask any question that they may have. This has the potential to build confidence in the classroom as well, since the more you seek the help you need, the bigger possibility of you gaining the confidence to do so in the actual classroom!


5. Establish an Early Foundation


Maybe you do okay in school and have never really thought about getting a tutor to help improve your grades. But what if you could choose the time and place and how you wanted to learn? Makes receiving help from a tutoring app much more attractive doesn’t it? We would have to agree!

With the opportunity and availability of online tutors, it has never been easier to get a boost to set your self up for success down the line! Think better grades to get into your dream school or to even get a scholarship for that college! Starting tutoring now will allow you to improve how you study, learn, and hopefully make you more excited about your education as you see yourself improving with each session!


So, who is ready to switch to a virtual tutor? If so, download the tútit app! We have tutors in over 150 subjects ready to help you with any questions you may have! Ready, set, get educated!
