More Help for Students
iTutorToday's mission – to provide an interactive, online tutoring system that is supportive, effective, motivating and engaging – recognizes the way the Internet has changed the face of education. Our system is much, much more than a simple homework helper. We teach students the skills they need to learn, and instill a lifelong love of learning.
Although it's smart for parents to be cautious when allowing Internet access for their children, there are many ways your child can benefit from using online reference tools.
Here are just a few tools we recommend for your family, to use in conjunction with your iTutorToday program, or independent of it.
