The services listed on this page suffer major issues, a lack of ethics, or are headed down the "wrong" path. Our experience with these services have shown they're Forgettable at best.
"A rose by any other name would smell as sweet", perhaps not in this case. Awesome Tutors is a service with some unique features, and as many aliases. It implements what's known as the "advance purchase discount" with tutors placed in one of several levels. The main issue is with the owner and his guerrilla marketing tactics, not to mention "borrowed" ideas and contracts. Awesometutors is the epitome of "learn by stealing" and has been taken to court at least once for libel and causing search engines to blacklist competitor websites.
Best Web Tutors claims to be a global leader in online tutoring services. They provide home work help, test preparation help, and help with computer applications. We received a free demonstration of their "tutoring" sessions, which are nothing more than a lecture with power point slides. The tutor's accent was strong and difficult to understand. They become quite indignant when challenged about their quality and switch into a litany about why American tutoring services are "inferior" the India online services.
Highly suspicious and ethically questionable service. The initial contact misrepresents himself as the only tutor, when in fact it is a whole company. According to "Alex" or "Ralph", or "Manish" or whatever the alias, this service actually "guarantees an A" and as they deem fit takes your online class for you. It is an "American based company from India." Cheating is not an acceptable form of educational help and lying is a red flag. We highly recommend you do not use this service. What is more disturbing is this company is affiliated with GlobalScholar.com (formerly Infilearn.com), which either condones taking online classes for American students or is not aware Class of 1 is doing so.
Founded by Bassim Wahhab in 2008, SLO Tutoring is a nebulous company. It is unknown if tutors are actually hired by the company or if it is simply a one man show. The website is wordy but thorough. Their rates are affordable though the owner remains suspiciously secretive by avoiding answering calls. Group tutoring appears to be available in the form of campus subject clinics. We suggest you approach with caution if you cannot reach the owner directly.
Tutor Doctor is a nationwide service that franchises, so specific domains will vary. They started about 11 years ago in Canada by Shawn Deidun. The company has the same offerings as most services but not has differentiated itself as anything unique or remarkable, and cost is the most important factor which deems this service forgettable.
Tutor Select claims they are the only company that offers parents their choice of tutor and encourages the selection of a tutor based on more than just qualifications. As of today their tutoring search function is not operating and you cannot speak to a live person. Other than a professional website there is nothing of note to recommend about this service.
u Prodigy delivers a high-quality academic tutoring service to America's college students through the employment of highly educated, English-speaking tutors in South Asia who are available 24/7. The website is difficult to navigate unless you submit to a security check.
