Looking for a tutor that connects and
understands your child?
Beyond the Classroom has been working with students since 1998, providing customized, 1:1 tutoring. We have amazing online teachers available NOW to help your child continue with their academics for all subjects in grades JK to 12. The tutoring sessions take place online on our tutoring platform called The Lesson Space. It’s an engaging online space where tutors and students connect using video, audio, share resources, screen share and edit in real time. It’s a great way for your child to stay on track with the work from their teachers.
We want to reduce YOUR stress as a parent during this difficult time. We know you are balancing competing demands at home and we’re here to help. Our tutors are engaging, knowledgeable and can keep your child on track with their work remotely! The Lesson Space platform is easy to use and compatible with most devices.
You will receive a unique URL that is your online meeting “space”. This is the online place where you will meet your tutor each time. The tutor and student can upload resources to the space to be used for the tutoring session. The tutor and student connect by voice and video to ensure the sessions are engaging and meaningful.
This is a fantastic space where learning can take place easily and efficiently. The platform has video and voice, screen sharing for both students and teachers, a whiteboard, coding applications, math tools, real-time editing and much more. It was developed by tutors, for tutors.
Yes! One of our core values is about the connection between the student and tutor. We know that optimal learning can take place when this relationship is established.
As we always have done, we offer families the first session free with Beyond the Classroom. If you have already received tutoring with one of our locations, you will not receive another free session for switching to online tutoring from in-home.
No, you simply click on the link and enter your first name and email address, then you are entered into the space to meet your tutor.
Lessonspace is device agnostic but is dependent on the functionality provided by the web browsers of platforms (i.e. Windows, Mac OS, iOS, Android, etc..). Tablets and Phones do not support screensharing due to limitations of the firmware on said devices. All functionality is supported on mobile and tablet devices. For iOS, only Safari is supported as other browsers do not support WebRTC.
Lessonspace will work on Chrome, Firefox, Safari (iOS 10+) and Edge. Internet Explorer 11 and older browsers are supported but without audio or video. We recommend either using the latest version of Chrome or Firefox as they deliver the best experience.
Lessonspace requires a minimum of 256kbit/s of uplink per video publishing stream, and a minimum of 256kbit/s of download per video receiving stream. Screen sharing doubles this to 512kbit/s. The signalling and content itself has a negligible bandwidth requirement. In total, for 1 on 1 lessons, at least a 1mbit/s symmetrical connection is recommended.
