Registering and signing up was very easy! I put in my information, and within minutes my profile was set up. I put in tutoring request for all three of my boys to meet their different needs, and within minutes, I had over twenty tutoring recommendations. GoPeer Tutoring reached out to the tutors for confirmation, so all I had to do was sit back and wait for a confirmed session. Once a tutor was assigned to our session, they sent me a quick message listing their qualifications and experience. We also set up a 15 minute time to meet and discuss my child’s needs before our first tutoring session.
We settled on a session for my son who is in 3rd grade, Clark, and we focused on math for a half hour session. Our tutor, Camryn, asked that we let her know what he needs to work on before our allotted time, so I sent her some word problems and geometry pages recommended by Clark’s teacher. She had a copy of the problems, and so did Clark. During their session, they worked out each problem together. As they worked, she gave him strategies to help him solve each problem and easy ways to fix his mistakes. He was engaged the entire time, and even though our 30 minutes was up, she kept working with him until all the problems were done.
Another great bonus was that he didn’t need me the entire time! Once I got him logged into the platform, it was a breeze. The video and audio worked flawlessly, and Camryn worked with him the whole time… no questions for me!
He enjoyed his time working with Camryn, and when he was finished, he felt very accomplished in all the problems they had worked!
As an educator, I think this is a fantastic option for students. So many have fallen behind due to the pandemic, and this is a great way to work at home to get caught up. As a mom, I was thrilled to have someone else help my child with his school work. All moms know that kids listen better to someone other than their parents, so this was great!
