Tutor.com press release

Tutor.comTutor.com, the award-winning provider of one-to-one, online tutoring and homework help is renewing its successful partnership with the Society of Physics Students (SPS), one of the largest physics societies in the world, to continue to recruit top notch physics tutors to help the hundreds of students who turn to Tutor.com for physics tutoring every night of the week.  Today more than 50 SPS members tutor for Tutor.com.  The company plans to bring on several hundred math and science tutors over the coming months.

The Society of Physics Students (SPS) and Sigma Pi Sigma, the national physics honor society housed within SPS, with a combined membership of well over 40,000 individuals, is renewing their commitment to let members know about the unique opportunity to tutor students online and on demand from the comfort of their dorm rooms through the organization’s Web site and direct communications throughout the year. The organization receives a referral fee for each accepted tutor. 

“Tutoring certainly served me well in my undergraduate days—I was honing my physics knowledge, improving my people skills, and making some money and getting the satisfaction of helping others—all in one place, a few hours a week,” said Gary White, director of the Society of Physics Students. “It is hard to imagine a better part-time position for an undergraduate physics major.”

“We are pleased to continue our successful partnership with such a well respected organization to identify physics tutors of the highest quality,” said Joan Rooney, vice president of tutor management at Tutor.com. “Tutor.com looks forward to a long relationship with the Society of Physics Students as well as other professional math and science organizations who can help us achieve our mission to find the best tutors for our students.”
