Online Tutoring for Kids in JK to Grade 12

What is Online Tutoring?

Beyond the Classroom started to look at adding online tutoring to support students who live in remote locations where we could not provide an in-home tutor. We were also concerned about our carbon footprint and how in-home tutoring was playing a role in our communities.

In 2018 we started to look at online tutoring platforms that would provide the very best tutoring experience for students. After a thorough evaluation, we moved forward with the Lesson Space platform.

We have a set of three core values and this platform met all of our criteria for providing the best online tutoring.

Students started to meet with their tutors in 2019 in the online spaces for their customized, 1:1 tutoring. The tutors and students were quick to adapt to the platform and in many ways, it has become more convenient for both.

Beyond the Classroom tutors have been successfully tutoring students as young as 3.5 years old! It's an easy to use and accessible tool that helps to provide tutoring to all students.
