Why I started mySTEMtutor.com
MySTEMtutor.com was launched out of total frustration. I was not qualified to tutor my high school student in math or science. Really not qualified! As I navigated the tutoring landscape, I soon realized that there was no simple way to find a qualified, motivated tutor for my student. There are plenty of franchise operations out there that charge high fees, ask for large commitments, but pay low wages to their tutors, many of whom did not attend noteworthy universities or even study math and science at an advanced, college level--totally uninspiring and very low in value. On the other side, there are the usual online bulletin boards and online tutor sites that demand that the parent screen and certify the tutor. Not a serious option. The prices vary widely, and there is no reasonable, satisfying way for the parent to make a qualified decision. Lastly, there is the referral: one unqualified parent to another. Maybe good, maybe bad, but then that tutor you finally hire forgets to tell you he has vacation plans the week before finals. Now your student and you are scrambling to find a solution. That's why we started mySTEMtutor.com.
We screen the tutors for you, we oversee their schedules and track your student's progress, and when needed, we provide substitutes. Best of all, we do it at all at a reasonable price.
