Indian American launches a virtual tutoring portalDecember 22nd, 2011 - 1:34 pm ICT by IANS
Washington, Dec 22 (IANS) Though originally aimed at teaching Hindi to Indian children in the US, an Indian American has launched a virtual tutoring portal for teaching various academic levels as well as 18 languages.
TheETutor.com, an educational online tutoring company, started by Harry Aurora, CEO, and Preeti Aurora, managing director, was launched by Nassau county executive, Edward P. Mangano, at a function in Long Island, New York last week.
Describing the state-of-art virtual portal as a revolution in learning, Aurora said the students participate in one-on-one tutoring led by superb tutors from the comfort of their home.
TheETutor.com provides help with all subjects for Kindergarten through twelfth grade (K-12) besides 18 languages including Spanish, French, German, Mandarin and Italian.
Hicksville-based TheETutor.com, was initially established with the mission of teaching Hindi and other Indian languages to Indian American children with the goal of preserving their culture and heritage, Aurora said.
However, in the development phase over the past year, Aurora and his team realised that there was a demand for other languages and academic subjects.
Aurora said his motto: “The future is here!” signifies that TheETutor has the technological advancements to teach their students through a virtual medium.
The technology includes an embedded whiteboard, built-in video and voice chat, image and file-sharing and even a feature to record the tutoring session.
The ETutor has nearly 100 qualified tutors on board ranging from college students to PhDs who are certified in various subjects. The fees range from $35 to $100 per lesson depending on the subject grade and/or language.
“What we offer will be most welcome in remote and far-flung areas where people would have only dreamt of tutoring for their children,” said Aurora
