Tutor.com Online Tutoring App Now Available Through Boopsie

Tutor.com, an online tutoring provider, and Boopsie, a mobile solution for universities and libraries worldwide, announced the availability of Tutor.com through the Boopsie platform. The partnership will make it easy for library patrons whose libraries subscribe to both services to access a live tutor anytime, anywhere through the Boopsie native mobile app.

For Tutor.com, the astounding growth in mobile usage has driven the development of a full mobile solution that includes the Tutor.com To Go iOS app for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad and an HTML5 classroom that is compatible with any mobile device. “For many students, especially those from lower economic backgrounds, their mobile device is the only way they have to access the internet,” said George Cigale, founder and CEO of Tutor.com. “The Tutor.com mobile app provides access to one-to-one online tutoring when and where students need help. We’re delighted to be working with Boopsie to make our app more visible to students as soon as they connect to their library’s mobile site.”

In use in more than 250 libraries and universities, Boopsie is changing the way libraries look at their mobile presence, taking a more strategic approach to delivering content beyond the library catalog to users when and where they need information. Boopsie is the American Library Association (ALA)’s mobile partner for a range of conferences and the preferred mobile solution for a number of consortia.

The Tutor.com network of more than 2,000 professional tutors and career specialists have delivered more than 7 million one-to-one tutoring and career sessions in a proprietary online classroom optimized for learning since 2001. For more information about Tutor.com’s Mobile Solutions, click here.
