What is AffordEdu?
AffordEdu is an online live tutoring service. Your Tutoring sessions take place in our easy-to-use online platform, which runs in your web browser. This is a personalized one-on-one instruction using a tailored study plan of what you know and what you want to know. AffordEdu has a mobile tutoring app that instantly connects students with expert tutors. Tutors help guide students through their problem by providing academic support, not just answers.
How is AffordEdu different from other tutoring services?
Our curriculum is not grade based, but topic based. Our interactive knowledge graph will help a student identify where his gaps are and will help him build the individualized study plan, learning what he wants to know and what he knows. Also during this process let the student pick up badges from lower to higher order as red, yellow green to blue. Our online tutors are not just teachers, they are mentors who will help a student build the study plan, coach them, help them develop their perspectives. Unlike other online tutoring companies, we do not provide easy answers. Instead, there is an emphasis on learning. Tutors don’t just solve problems; they work with students to provide conceptual understanding.
How does AffordEdu work?
- Online lessons take place in an interactive, digital classroom. They include video, audio and a chat feature for direct communication with the tutor and a shared whiteboard for viewing documents, plotting functions or working out equations.
- Students use the AffordEdu app to submit a picture of the problem they are working on. They are instantly connected to a tutor. After reviewing the problem, the tutor and student work to solve it together.
