June 26, 2008 17:42 ET Launches Summer Advantage Programs for 2008

COLUMBIA, MD--(Marketwire - June 26, 2008) -, the leading provider of one-on-one online tutoring, has launched its Summer Advantage Programs for 2008 following the success of last year's programs. The programs, available for math, English, and science, are designed to prevent summer learning loss and ensure students begin the upcoming school year well prepared or ahead of their class.

Research demonstrates that many students lose the equivalent of one to two months of reading and math skills during the summer. This learning loss can have a long-term effect on their overall academic success. TutorVista's Summer Advantage Programs are designed to review last year's concepts to ensure mastery and introduce students to concepts they will face in the upcoming school year. At the same time, the programs are highly interactive and taught in a one-on-one multimedia environment to keep students engaged as they are learning. The result is a more confident and better performing student this fall.

TutorVista's flat pricing model -- $99.99 for unlimited tutoring, including TutorVista's summer programs -- is also a major draw for parents looking for a way to provide their children with summer learning opportunities without "breaking the bank." With the prohibitive cost of tutoring compounded with rising fuel prices, the opportunity to study with an expert tutor in the convenience of one's home rather than driving to a learning center or school is more attractive than ever. Students are able to schedule or take instant, on-demand sessions at their convenience, 24x7, and simply log-in from anywhere with an Internet connection to work with their tutor.

TutorVista expects record use of their summer programs this year. "We had well over 15,000 Summer Advantage tutoring sessions last year in addition to our regular unlimited tutoring," says Dr. John Stuppy, President of TutorVista. "More and more parents recognize the value of summer learning to their children's academic success and understand the long-term benefits of one-on-one tutoring. With TutorVista's unlimited model, parents can now provide their children with all the help they need to be ready for the next school year."
