Online Tutoring Essentials

Mission

These days, online learning is more important than ever, but it creates new challenges for many students and educators. That's why Tutor Matching Service designed Online Tutoring Essentials: to equip tutors with the critical knowledge they need to support students through better online tutoring experiences.
Online Tutoring Essentials was reviewed by faculty and staff from organizations such as West Virginia University, University of Florida University Athletic Association, and Tallahassee Community College. Online Tutoring Essentials is part of the Tutor Essentials program, the only web-based tutor training course endorsed by College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA), and is specifically aligned to the Association of Colleges for Tutoring and Learning (ACTLA) Online Tutoring Standards.
