Results: Between 2007 and 2009, more than 96% of private school students and 90% of public school students receiving SES tutoring improved their overall academic grades in their classes by at least one letter grade when they were working with a Tutorpedia tutor. In the past two years, every student with documented learning disabilities experienced an increase in their grades while they were working with a Tutorpedia Tutor.

In a recent survey, 100% of Tutorpedia parents report that they are “satisfied” or “very satisfied” with their tutor’s expertise, teaching ability, and dependability, and 90% are “very satisfied” with Tutorpedia’s overall services. Teachers have also noted significant gains in student achievement through working with Tutorpedia.
