Press Release ( – TAMPA, Fla. – Apr 09, 2020 – With schools across the U.S. and Canada closing indefinitely, tutit announces they are offering on-demand virtual tutoring ‘at cost’, effective immediately, to ensure all students can continue learning. The United Nations reports that due to the spread of COVID-19, close to 1.3 billion children and youth are affected by school closures worldwide, creating an unparalleled education disruption. In the U.S. and Canada, some school districts are hoping that remote learning can fill the gap.

“Hundreds of students have used tutit to connect to fully-screened, qualified tutors from the comfort and safety of their homes, and we’re pleased to continue to be a resource to students across the U.S. and Canada during this unprecedented time,” said Darryl Simsovic, CEO of LaunchLife, the EdTech company that operates tutit.

In today’s rapidly changing and anxiety-inducing environment, students may find it difficult to stay focused and may require more support to keep up academically. As an innovative, global platform that allows students to find tutors and get help on specific issues anytime, anywhere, 24/7 – this is where tutit shines. Help with homework and study questions is always available, as tutit connects students instantaneously with an experienced tutor via phone or tablet using chat, audio, and interactive whiteboards for dynamic and effective learning sessions. 

Tutors are fully screened and qualified in the subjects they tutor. Tutor ratings are routinely reviewed, and any tutor who falls below minimum acceptable standards is removed from the app. 

Founded in 2016, tutit was born out of necessity in a University of Tampa dorm room. Their model is simple – available tutors will respond to a session request within 60 seconds. Pay by the minute at $0.50/min and only use as much time as needed (10-minute minimum per session). At just $5, a 10-minute session can help students through basic math problems and tricky homework questions. All tutoring sessions are automatically saved and available for unlimited viewing. Parents may prepay a fixed amount or put a credit card on file for unlimited student use.

In response to COVID-19, LaunchLife will be not taking any profit from now through the end of the school year. Session prices are reduced to cover only tutors’ compensation and direct technology costs.

tutit is available for immediate download at or search tutit in the Apple App Store or Google Play.
