Tutoring Matching Network - MOOC Tutoring
http://www.tutormatchingservice.com/about - Tutor Matching Service was created to increase access to one-on-one education and in doing so promote student success. Tutor Matching Service was originally piloted and financially sponsored by a handful of university tutoring centers (learning centers), career centers, and student governments including IUPUI, CalTech, Purdue, NYU Poly, and Kent State University. At most colleges and universities, there is no tutoring available for upper level chemistry, physics, math, languages, and other courses. College learning centers get frequent phone calls and emails from parents looking for college tutors.Tutor Matching Service is now used by over thirty two and four-year institutions, and is financially supported by withholding a 10% booking fee from enrolled tutors (i.e., a student books an hour of tutoring at $10.00 per hour and the tutor receives $9.00. The student pays no additional taxes or fees.) If the tutor volunteers their services, there are no fees.Tutor Matching Service gives students and parents better access to affordable, high-quality private tutoring and allows tutors to focus on teaching and learning—not scheduling or payment.
