TutorVista Unveils Live Access to Online Tutoring via Talk2aTutor

##AUTHORSPLIT##<--->

TutorVista has announced the release of TutorVista Connect Now, allowing students to connect live with their tutors through the company's Talk2aTutor service.

The addition of live verbal communication to Web-based tutoring is intended to provide a more robust, dynamic learning environment, allowing students to explore difficult concepts without the added barrier of chat-only interaction, according to the company. Before the addition of TutorVista Connect Now with Talk2aTutor, students had to schedule a time to speak with their tutor in person.

"The lack of real-time communication can be a real hindrance to learning," said John Stuppy, president of TutorVista, in a prepared statement. "We found when students can point to different parts of a figure, graph or phrase and verbally ask a complex question it's faster, more engaging and leads to quicker understanding and skill mastery."

According to the company, live tutors are available around-the-clock, 365 days per year, to give students immediate access to tutoring services. TutorVista has served some 500,000 students in its three-year history.
