Credo Acquires OnlineTutorSolutions.com

Credo announced that it acquired OnlineTutorSolutions.com, which will significantly enhance its Literati solutions with technologies that connect students to on-staff, state-certified tutors at their point of need. The acquisition furthers Credo’s mission to work with libraries, educators, publishers, and technology providers to create a society in which everyone has the ability to learn and an opportunity to succeed.

Mike Sweet, Credo’s CEO, says, “Education trends like the ‘flipped classroom’ show that the boundaries between the classroom and the library are blurring, making unconventional educational support absolutely critical. By acquiring OnlineTutorSolutions.com, Credo is able to offer an affordable way for librarians and educators to give all students the support they need to be successful, removing the barriers that hinder those who are unable to find or afford state-qualified tutors.”

Literati is Credo’s flagship solution that combines authoritative scholarly content, innovative technologies, and customizable services to help libraries and educational institutions make the most of limited resources. The company has developed solutions to meet the unique needs of secondary school students, college students, student athletes, and public library patrons. Credo is experiencing unprecedented uptake of Literati in terms of new customers, partnerships, and recognition by prestigious award programs, including a 2013 SIIA CODiE Award for Literati Public.

OnlineTutorSolutions.com offers its students an affordable, convenient, and effective alternative to traditional learning centers. It provides a one-to-one, interactive learning environment based in state-of-the-art technologies. Tutoring takes place over the internet, in the convenience of the student’s home or at their local library. All tutors are state-certified teachers, specially trained to help students achieve academic success.
