)-- Tutors with Computers is proud to announce the completion of Starcrosser, a graphic novel that it has added to its vocabulary and reading comprehension software.
Starcrosser is based on a story by Tutors with Computers’ own graphic artist, Dan Santiago. The story follows the journey of an interplanetary visitor named Luq, who is on a quest to save his home planet from terrible danger. In order to succeed, Luq must learn Earth words so that he can understand the texts that will help him build new inventions. Along the way, Luq and his friends must face countless obstacles, including the villainous tyrant who is taking over Luq’s home planet. Exceeding 250 comic pages, Starcrosser is a coming of age adventure of cosmic proportions.
Tutors with Computers recognizes Starcrosser as an opportunity to enrich its students' educational experience in a way that is relevant to them. Throughout Luq’s journey, Tutors with Computers provides its students with reading practice and introduces them to various trades and career paths that are made available through education.
When asked about what inspired Starcrosser, Santiago replied, “Our story is meant to inspire and uplift readers. It gives our students a glimpse of what it's like to succeed on any endeavor, even when all odds are against them. We hope our story will motivate our students to press on with our program, thus improving their reading and communication skills as they are stimulated to keep on learning.”
Starcrosser is available exclusively in Tutors with Computers' online reading product. Students enrolled with Tutors with Computers can access Starcrosser on computers, smartphones, and tablet devices.
