Is online tutoring as effective as in-person tutoring?

Absolutely. We have been offering online tutoring for many years, during which time we have fine-tuned and perfected our delivery platform. With the shift to the Digital SAT, online tutoring is an excellent option as it enables the tutor and student to use the same computer-based format as the Digital SAT.  

Can I see a demonstration of Socrates in action?
