A core aspect of a rewarding educational experience is the opportunity to receive individualized support with a knowledgeable expert. Teachers are excellent facilitators of classroom instruction, but having an additional subject expert available to provide one on one support can make all the difference in a student’s learning experience. That’s why TutorMe connects each student with a single tutor for every tutoring session.
However, this service would be nothing if not for the talented individuals who are part of TutorMe’s tutoring community. Each tutor brings their own unique background and experiences in their field, allowing students the opportunity to engage and learn with a variety of experts. To learn about these individuals more, we created the Behind the Screen series – a series dedicated to learning more about our tutors and their valuable insights into their work.
In our last feature, we met with library science tutor, Marj Atkinson, about her background and her journey with TutorMe. For this feature, we are excited to introduce writing tutor, Farren Washington!
During this interview, Farren discusses her passion for writing and guiding others through the writing process. She also discusses how she utilizes different strategies to keep her students engaged and why her expertise as a writer is a great asset to helping her students succeed.
Human connection drives deeper learning — that's why TutorMe connects learners with a single tutor per session and enables enriching face-to-face collaboration through live audio and video chat.
Every day, the exceptional subject matter experts on TutorMe positively impact the lives of students everywhere. We're honored to share these tutors' stories in our Behind the Screen series.
Tutors are the heart of the TutorMe platform. Everyday, subject matter experts log on to share their knowledge and expertise with new learners. These 1-on-1 sessions help students grow in confidence and skills, and provide support for struggling learners.
To get to know these tutors more, TutorMe launched the Behind the Screen series. In our first interview, we chatted with accomplished writing tutor Kirsten Schuder about her tutoring journey with TutorMe.
