There’s may have never been a period in education as transformative as the one we’ve seen surrounding the spread of the novel coronavirus and the ensuing COVID-19 pandemic, with remote learning becoming a must-grapple-with reality overnight and questions still looming about how 2021 will unfold across the world’s schools.
To explore how that foundational shift in education has affected tutoring and where services like TutorMe, which aims to charge schools for tutoring services instead of parents to drive greater accessibility, host Daniel Litwin sat down with TutorMe CEO Myles Hunter.
There’s potentially an opportunity for third-party tutoring services to become more ingrained than ever in the public school system, as staff numbers are down and COVID-19 continues to provide extensive challenges that add to existing hurdles in accessibility, achievement gaps and more.
Litwin and Hunter discussed that opportunity, as well as the Biden administration’s potential impact on education via a commitment to closing the digital divide and more.
“Students, parents and school districts are really seeing [third-party tutoring] as, ‘Hey, this is not just an ad hoc supplement to our program. This can really be integral to what we do,’” Hunter said. “So, we’re seeing a real normalization in that way.”
