Tutor Matching Service, a cutting edge program that pairs students with tutors, officially arrives to Polytechnic Institute of NYU (NYU-Poly). The tutoring service will primarily serve NYU-ePoly, the online learning unit that delivers over 20 online graduate programs worldwide, including NYU-Poly’s virtual Cyber Security Program, which was recently voted as having one of the best online programs in graduate engineering by U.S. News and World Report.
The website matches students with tutors to ensure high quality tutoring in a safe environment. TMS has teamed up with many universities across the country to bring expert tutoring in hundreds of subject areas to their students.
"Normally, undergraduate students are those in need of tutoring," said NYU-Poly Director of Online Learning, John Vivolo. "However, this is an unmet need for graduate students as well, especially to keep pace in a competitive graduate degree program. Few schools offer this service to graduates, no less to online students."
The average hourly rate for the service is approximately $10 an hour, which creates an affordable solution for students seeking high quality tutoring at low prices. At some universities, more than 25 percent of tutors actual volunteer to provide their services, free of charge, to other students.
“TMS has proven to make all kinds of tutoring accessible to everyone. Having one central tutor list gets rid of the hassle and awkwardness of finding a tutor and leads to better learning outcomes,” says TMS President Ethan Fieldman.
TMS also accommodates student’s schedules, with 45 percent of tutoring on the system occurring outside of normal business hours. This allows students to find tutors at convenient times.
Those interested in using ePoly’s new Tutor Matching Service should visit the website at www.TutorMatchingService.com to browse tutors, sign up to tutor, or learn more about the service.
