The City School District of New Rochelle is now partnering with Tutor.com, an affiliate of the Princeton Review. All students district-wide now have free, unlimited, round-the-clock access to live one-to-one tutoring and homework support in English or Spanish. The service is available in a range of subjects (including math, writing, science, social studies, world languages, Advanced Placement® – AP® subjects, and even SAT prep). Students will receive personalized attention and can communicate with tutors via text-chat or voice.  

Tutor.com is a supplemental academic support to help students succeed. When a student is absent from school but well enough to access assignments on Google Classroom, or a student just needs homework help outside of school hours, Tutor.com can provide on-demand academic assistance. Please note that Tutor.com does not replace current protocols for virtual learning for students on COVID quarantine.

Tutor.com is always safe and secure. Tutors undergo rigorous vetting. Sessions are recorded and reviewed, and students’ identities are kept anonymous. Neither the student nor the tutor will ever see each other. Tutor.com’s online classroom allows students to use a whiteboard, text and code editor interfaces, graphing calculators, and other tools to communicate with tutors in real time. Tutors help students figure out problems by themselves — they never simply provide answers! They are dedicated to giving students encouraging, judgment-free support and assistance.

Connecting with a tutor is quick and easy. Students can access Tutor.com by signing into their district devices, accessing the district’s launchpad, and simply clicking the tutor.com icon to start a live tutoring session. Students using a non-district-provided device must sign into launchpad (https://launchpad.classlink.com/nredlearn) first, then click the tutor.com icon to access Tutor.com.
