How Our Tutoring Services Work

AI-Powered Tutor Matching

Our AI-powered matching tool will pair your student with the perfect mentor for their particular needs based on their age, grade level, region, skill level, and experience with tutoring. We aim to make the learning experience as comfortable as possible for your student by matching them to the best DryErase Academy tutor available.

Seamless Tutoring Experience

Our tutors use one of the most advanced remote learning systems currently available. The DryErase Academy tutoring system uses video chat (tutoring sessions will be recorded), live text chat, virtual whiteboards, screen sharing/screen take-over, assessment tools, and many more to enhance the virtual learning experience.

Analysis of the Tutoring Session

When the session is completed, you will be able to download the lesson so that your student can go back and review what they learned earlier in the session. Students will have the opportunity to continue with the same tutor following their session or choose a new tutor based on their preferences and comfort level with the tutor. 

Why Choose The DryErase Academy Tutors

Comprehensive Evaluation

Our tutors conduct a comprehensive evaluation to assess your child’s current subject mastery, in order to give instructors a baseline of where to start. This helps guarantee that students will be helped with the areas in which they struggle rather than where they already succeed.

Focusing on Strengths/Areas of Opportunities

By identifying the students’ strengths and areas for improvement, our tutors will be able to quickly understand your student’s particular strengths and identify the areas in which the student needs the most improvement/help from our tutors.

Plan of Action

We work hand in hand with your student to create a plan of action to manage their schedule, complete assignments in a timely manner, stay on track of projects, and the areas of opportunity identified in order to create a long-term solution to the problem areas identified. 

Tailored Adaptive Tutoring

After your student has their first tutoring session, our tutors are trained to tailor their teachings in order to best suit the method of learning for your student as they continue work together. We provide feedback forms for the tutors to be filled out by parents/students in order to further the tailored learning.

Flexible Approach

The DryErase Academy offers both in-person and online tutoring with flexibility in mind. Our online tutoring uses video chat (tutoring session will be recorded), live text chat, virtual whiteboards, screen sharing/screen take-over, assessment tools, and many more to enhance the virtual learning experience.
