Live Tutoring Website Lowers Failures in Ontario Quebec High Schools

A fresh concept to an old and traditional method of helping students pass their courses is entering the mainstream online market. Attention: Business/Financial Editor, City Editor, Education Editor CHELSEA, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 22, 2005) - MiLearn Online Tutoring (www.milearn.com) provides senior High School students with personalized one -on-one tutoring services in a live virtual environment. Unlike many home based tutoring sessions, MiLearn brings interactive, focused learning into a medium that today's students are most comfortable- the Internet.

Using live learning platforms, MiLearn has designed an online tutoring program with standards that not only meet the provincial curriculum, but also actively engages the student into applied learning practices through the help of their trained and experienced University based tutors. With numerous statistics illustrating the high failure rates and increased percentages of High School students dropping-out, a need and demand for alternative learning practices and applications focusing on the student is apparent. MiLearn has developed their unique model with the success of High School students at the forefront.

"Our tutors go through a training program in understanding and applying best practices in the online world in order to reach the High School student", states Michael Burnatowski, President of MiLearn. "We select our tutors not only based on their high academic success (honours, Master programs, scholarships), but also because they are excellent communicators and are not far removed from the learning styles and learning language of a typical High School student. Our students form a strong and interactive bond with our tutors as many share the same likes and dislikes, play similar sports, listen to similar music- it is a relationship that opens itself to active learning and learning success. It is a unique and fun relationship that fosters the learning style of many of today's students.

In a recent pilot project, students enjoyed the learning medium as they can talk, and interact with the tutors from any computer. Some comments from students have included, "it was a lot better then I had expected it to be ... a lot more fun and interesting; and "MiLearn is really great! My tutor is fun and teaches in a way I understand. She is really helping! I also like the fact that we don't have to waste 30 minutes driving to get tutoring."

MiLearn's program is designed to help parents and students who are serious about High School success and are searching for new, innovative and successful methods of learning. Students are being accepted into the tutoring program beginning in September.
