At Learn Plus Tutor, understand the importance and impact of representation and welcome tutors and students from all walks of life. We pride ourselves on our dedication to sustaining inclusivity and providing diversified viewpoints and learning experiences regardless of background.
Having embraced an inherent need to advance student potential, Learn Plus Tutor (LPT) was founded in May 2020 in the heart of Atlanta, Georgia, to facilitate that goal. Here we aim to provide subject experts with aspiring learners to make sense of complicated topics and build new pathways to academic success. Anticipating the varying needs of our prospective learners, LPT matched students with tutors. We handpick each of them, from professors to subject experts, to ensure we only allow quality tutors on our platform. The platform allows learners and tutors to connect anytime and anywhere through both mobile and desktop devices. Both have access to an integrated online classroom with a two-way whiteboard, live video, chat, digital tools, and more. Utilizing the latest technology and leveraging our experience as educators, we’ve ensured that our online tutoring platform is meant to support making tangible improvements in students’ learning capabilities.
Affordability: We want to keep our hourly rates affordable for our learners, so we have tutors as low as $10 an hour.
Technology-equipped: We are always investing and researching technological software to make our company more efficient.
Inclusion: We love being a multicultural company. We believe good companies hire all types of persons to be representative of our colorful nation.
Merit: We aim to be worthy and to build a life-long space in the education industry.
Eco-Friendly: We do not use paper products to operate our business. We know that using less paper helps our company do its part to help the environment and reduce our carbon footprint.
