“The Online Tutoring Essentials course is a great tool to empower your tutors to move their tutoring skills from face-to-face to online. I love how it provides tutors with tools they can implement immediately to make their online tutoring more personable and more active.”
“We used the Online Tutoring Essentials program from TMS a few months ago with our new hires. In short: FANTASTIC! As I conducted observations in October and November, I noticed a significant (positive) difference in performance, for all tutors who completed the TMS program, compared to the tutors returning from last year, who had just done our in-house training! I am so pleased! Money well-spent!”
“I thought it was very beneficial! I feel as if the learning module explained a lot of cool features of online tutoring as well as gave good tips on how to make sure communication remains clear and open.”
