What types of tutoring sessions are available?

What types of tutoring sessions are available?

There is a broad spectrum of academic subjects such as Business, Accounting, Economics, Languages, Algebra, Biology, to sub-categories of Financial Accounting, Marketing, Music, Theater and test preparation. Who knows maybe niche crafts like sewing, knitting, and gunsmith will be popular.

All tutoring sessions are live, and students have the option to choose between one-on-one learning sessions or group sessions (2-5 students total). You may either schedule a session for a future time or take an instant, on-demand session with an instructor-tutor who is currently online. Educators are available 24/7.

The Biggest Benefits For Students Using HookBoard

There are several Hookboard features that students can benefit from by using this product. It’s an ideal solution for relieving stress, anxiety, pressure, and frustration. Students can easily access educators online 24/7, browse by academic or non-academic educators, and select profiles based their own needs, preferences, criteria, qualifications or expertise. Students can browse through these profiles online or request an invitation to specific educators for a future day and time.

The biggest benefit I believe is establishing and developing strong relationships with one or several educators by any field of study. HookBoard offers students a flexible online learning solution that doesn’t interfere with jobs, appointments, illnesses, sporting events or other engagements.

How Professors & Teachers can use HookBoard

Professors & Teachers can use HookBoard as a way to communicate to their classes/students.

Colleges are looking for ways to add value to their educational offerings. Hookboard al­lows them to extend the learning experience beyond the classroom and to offer students access to the teaching staff when they might need it the most – during off hours.

Office facilities at most colleges are limited. This gives them a way to offer a “Virtual Of­fice” to every educator on staff where they can meet with a group of students at pre-set times.

Colleges may attract educators who have to travel to teach on-site classes but are wary of having to keep extended office hours on campus. HookBoard allows them to keep office hours from remote locations and to be able to reach more students in less time.

I find extreme value in the product. There are several Hookboard features educators can utilize. For the first time Instructors-tutors can demonstrate and convey a specific skill, talent, craft or expertise and be paid for it. Instructors –tutors, scholars, trainers, and coaches can put their passion and knowledge to use with HookBoard and earn extra income. The educator can be a freelancer or contractor and create a mini business.

Professors and Teacher that are licensed now have a powerful new tool for faculty and students, offering online tools and resources to effectively teach and engage students outside the traditional classroom setting-all in one place. What’s most impressive about the platform and Whiteboard technology is it maximizes productivity, time, energy, money, and accessibility to students by offering solutions to course problems, and independent learning activities that are not possible in traditional classroom courses. It basically transforms office hours from a repeat of the days lecture into-in depth exchanges that enhance comprehension of key topics.

Is there a specific age range or area HookBoard is targeting? HookBoard’s targeted audience are students that are traditional or non-traditional learners in the age range of 15 or older. Target: High School, Community College, Undergraduate and Graduate school.

HookBoard is targeting an audience?

HookBoard is new to the market and has two major audiences. Educators: (Certified and Non Certified) and Students. The primary target will be an educator with at least 10 years experience. They like to think of themselves as out of the box thinkers, tech savvy, and a new breed. They make full use of technology in their personal as well as their professional life. They are looking for a way to leverage their skills, knowledge and expertise to maximize their income in academic or non-academic studies. HookBoards primary focus is on the following:

Instructors-Tutors- HookBoard offers higher education teaching outlets for instructors-tutors of all levels.

Professors & Teachers- Hookboard al­lows them to extend the learning experience beyond the classroom and to offer students access to the teaching staff when they might need it the most -during off hours.

Describe how a student pays for their tutoring and how the educators get paid.  How does that all work?

(Instructors-tutors) and (Professors & Teachers) – After conducting a lesson, funds are made available to the teacher or professor. In the dashboard, a user will see the amount available for payout. In order to receive funds, the teacher or professor must link their bank account or PayPal account. This is found under My Account, then Billing & Deposits. Funds are distributed within 3-5 business days.

Describe what went into building this company.  How long have you had the idea for HookBoard?

I began working on the business model over a year ago. It’s been a slow process from inception to conception, however its been worth the wait to deliver an excellent product to the market.  HookBoard strives to deliver the highest optimal educational learning experience. Are objective is to create an enjoyable working environment offering solutions to everyone for communication, collaboration, interaction and productivity. I believe this will revolutionize education and remove barriers and obstacles of distance learning.

How do you find educators for the site?  Will there be educators for each subject?

Within 6-8 months there will be hundreds of educators for each subject, category, and sub-category. For the first time, educators have a sophisticated platform and resource tools that delivers a flexible online learning solution to all walks of life.

Is this something you wish was available when you were a student?  Would you have used HookBoard?

Absolutely, when I was undergraduate school I needed help in Anatomy II. I couldn’t find assistance or tutoring until it was too late. In graduate school I was learning Real Estate Accounting. I had difficulty in excel formulas.

Professors & Teachers can use HookBoard as a way to communicate to their classes/students.  Can you describe that a little bit?

Colleges are looking for ways to add value to their educational offerings. Hookboard al­lows them to extend the learning experience beyond the classroom and to offer students access to the teaching staff when they might need it the most – during off hours.

Office facilities at most colleges are limited. This gives them a way to offer a “Virtual Of­fice” to every educator on staff where they can meet with a group of students at pre-set times.

Colleges may attract educators who have to travel to teach on-site classes but are wary of having to keep extended office hours on campus. HookBoard allows them to keep office hours from remote locations and to be able to reach more students in less time.
