After researching eTutorWorld’s tools and comparing them to those offered by other online tutoring services, I believe there are better places to get help with your schoolwork online. However, if you’re specifically looking for help with the School and College Ability Test (SCAT), eTutorWorld has a specialized program that’s worth considering.
eTutorWorld has tutors who can work with students in third to 12th grade, and it has four basic packages that cover either test prep or standard tutoring. The service doesn’t have a drop-in feature, like Chegg or TutorMe, so help isn’t available 24/7 – you must schedule sessions with your tutor ahead of time.
This service has some of the lowest prices I saw during my research. Tutoring time is sold in packages, and the least expensive one is $20.00 for a 50-minute session. Before signing up, you want to make sure you meet the specific package requirements. For example, the cheapest package can only be used for math, science and English tutoring, not test prep.
It would be better if eTutorWorld let you pay as you go so you didn’t have to pay for more time than you use. The site’s FAQs page states that if your session doesn’t last the full 50 minutes, the remaining minutes are lost – you can’t roll the time into another session, and you don’t receive a refund for unused time.
Unlike other sites, eTutorWorld’s tutors aren’t required to have an advanced degree or teaching certification. However, they go through a rigorous, multiple-round hiring process.
The site’s learning suite, or whiteboard space, isn’t as advanced as those of some of its competitors, including Chegg or TutorMe. However, eTutorWorld offers a free trial, so you can see if it has everything you need before you pay. Tutors communicate with you using voice and live chat rather than video chat like on other sites. You can archive lessons to review later or to monitor your child’s interactions with their tutor.
eTutorWorld has a 30-day money back guarantee in case you’re not satisfied with your experience. You can reach support by phone and email if you have any questions or problems.
