Testimonials

Virtual Classrooms has been offering on-line tutoring service to many high schools, colleges and universities (mostly located in California and partly in North Dakota) since 2000. Our tutors have been providing on-line tutoring sessions in math and science for both K-12 and college students. Most of the students have greatly appreciated our program and found it helpful. We asked the students who have participated in on-line tutoring sessions to write us a memo evaluating the service. We are listing below the testimonials that we received from the students which have participated in on-line tutoring sessions with our tutors during the past few years. The students were quite positive about the program, as you can see by reading the memos below.

Math

College of Marin

These are some feedback memos submitted by students in the on-line Introduction to Probability and Statistics class taught by Ira Lansing at College of Marin. The students who wrote these memos all participated in the study group and tutoring sessions conducted by Virtual Classrooms' tutor, Helen Mesheryakova. This program was supported by the Bay Area Region of the California Virtual Campus.

Prof. Lansing, Probability and Statistics class instructor: "Establishing a sense of classroom and community in an Internet course is very difficult. The services provided by Ray Kronquist and his tutors goes a long way to creating and maintaining the feeling of belong to a class."
