ASHLEY TUTORS PARTNERS TO DELIVER ONLINE TUTORING
POWERED BY EDUCATE ONLINE
Washington (DC), April 12, 2012—Ashley Tutors, a Washington, D.C education services company, is partnering with Educate Online, a national online tutoring leader to provide online tutoring to DC area families.
Ashley Tutors Online will provide local parents with more options to help their children with schoolwork from the metropolitan area’s renowned school systems. Tutoring in the new online program is delivered by Educate Online’s certified instructors in the Educate Online learning environment. These instructors are skilled at delivering content tailored to the needs of students who reside in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia school districts. Children as young as 6 years old can now receive effective, personalized tutoring using a home computer. Those same children will also have access to a unique reward system where they can earn prizes based on their performance during the tutoring and then claim their prizes through an online portal.
“Educate Online is a pioneer of online learning, and their mission of helping kids learn maps perfectly with our values,” said Ashley Tutors President Joshua Chernikoff. “Students in 43 states have been using Educate Online with impressive results. A study showed with Educate Online children are able to learn more effectively and can raise their grades by a complete letter grade in less than 25 hours of online tutoring.”
“We are excited to partner with Ashley Tutors. We share a strong commitment to providing high quality learning experiences that impact student success,” said Educate Online President Joseph Olchefske. “By bringing online tutoring to their students, Ashley Tutors is now making it easier for students to get the academic support they need. Their students will benefit from the experience and quality of our certified instructors and educational program.”
Local parents can enroll their children in Ashley Tutors Online beginning June 15, 2012. “This will allow us to work with students in their current grade, help them improve and plan any needed summer tutoring with their parents,” said Chernikoff.
