The ability to find a partner that can provide 24/7 on-demand support for our students allows us to better serve them in multiple ways. First, a student no longer ever has to feel helpless at home when working through difficult concepts.
Second, we are utilizing a service that mimics the communication modalities that our students are most familiar with. Lastly, this is a tool that supports teachers as well as students as all interactions are shared so that teachers can gain different perspectives on how individual students may learn best.
