After that, she went through punctuation, asking about comma placement.
She asked the question of whether the comma looked like it was in the right place, versus just telling her to the make the change, which was a helpful teaching aid.
We offered $30 for the project, since the others were less expensive than that, and we kept checking back for about 12 hours.
No one responded to our request for help, so we gave up on that one.
I keep thinking that this extra expense is worth it if that means it satisfies a college requirement, which could easily cost thousands of dollars more.
The company picks tutors based on a number of criteria including background checks, reviews of past transcripts and standardized test scores, a history of tutoring or teaching, and in-person and video interviews to “determine friendliness, communication, ability to develop learning plans and how effective they'd be as a tutor.”There are several other companies that offer similar services.
We also tried Tutor.com, which acquired well-known test prep company, The Princeton Review, a few years ago, Chegg Tutors, and Mindspree.
We went to all three of them with the same task: Read through my daughter’s Honors English 3 essay, and suggest ways she can make it better.
Of the three, was the fastest and least expensive (she only used the free 30 minute introductory offer for the review), but Chegg was the most helpful (and it also offered a free 30-minute trial).
Mindspree lets you request a tutor and name your price.
