myCampusTutors Offers Free Online Tutoring for 6th-12th Grade Students During Public Beta Launch

Austin-Based Start-Up Will Offer Free Unlimited Tutoring Sessions in Math, Science and Spanish for 6th-12th Grade Students to Utilize

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - Apr 15, 2013) - myCampusTutors, L.L.C., provider of a fully interactive, online tutoring solution, announced today that it would offer unlimited free online tutoring for 6th-12th grade students as part of a limited public beta launch for their services and proprietary technology. Students will be able to schedule 30-minute or 1-hour sessions with certified tutors for help in Math, Science and Spanish until May 31, 2013.

Founded in 2012, myCampusTutors has been focused on integrating current technologies and automating business processes in order to provide a highly efficient, cost effective tutoring solution that serves the needs of students, parents, and tutors alike. Using the company's online whiteboard technology, which features audio and video capability with document and desktop sharing, students can interact with tutors who can help with homework questions, test readiness and subject remediation. All tutors who work with the company must pass a rigorous certification process before they are added to the system.

"We are excited to begin the process of launching our online tutoring services," says Katy Hackerman, Founder and CEO of myCampusTutors. "There is a paradigm shift happening in the way our kids are learning and the need for proficient online education tools and resources has never been greater."

During the development of myCampusTutors' online tutoring platform, the company held several private beta sessions for students in the Central Texas Area. The company used those initial sessions to optimize their whiteboard technology, to further develop and train their tutors and to gain insights and feedback from students and parents about their services. With the private beta sessions now complete, myCampusTutors is ready to move on to the next phase of their launch plan.

"Our team is confident that students will enjoy the learning experience we have worked hard to cultivate," says Erin Ostboe, Vice President of Operations for myCampusTutors. "We have attracted the best and brightest tutors and have built an innovative, educational platform that makes online learning enriching and fulfilling."

myCampusTutors plans to fully launch their online tutoring services with new features in September 2013. Students and Parents can begin the sign up process for the beta launch at http://www.mycampustutors.com/free-online-tutoring.aspx. Once approved, users will be able to create an account and schedule online tutoring sessions.
