San Mateo, CA, March 21, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- NextGuru, the pioneer of online student-tutor networking, announced today that it has launched a new corporate blog. NextGuru will be publishing content that will highlight resources that students are looking for and provides another vehicle for tutors to spotlight their services.
Parents recognize the importance of private tutoring to ensure their children get the best educational outcome possible. With school funding tethered to standardized tests, teachers and students feel pressure to improve academic test scores. As school resources are stretched, many school districts balance budgets by cutting enrichment programs like art, music, drama, and sports. NextGuru’s online marketplace makes it easy to find tutors for students with expertise in over ninety subject areas from academics to enrichment and sports.
Building upon a foundation of personal experience and industry expertise, the team at NextGuru is developing content that will provide students and parents with information that helps them find the right private tutors. “We are very excited to launch the NextGuru Blog,” said Jenny Chang, CMO of NextGuru. “Our blog will be featuring information for parents, tutoring tips, and will spotlight exceptional tutors.”
Research has shown that during summer vacation students lose important skills that must either be taught again for students to succeed with new material. NextGuru is responding to this problem by publishing a listing of their tutor’s summer programs on the blog. “NextGuru is providing parents another opportunity to ensure their children’s success. Parents can find programs that help their kids keep their skills sharp over the summer in areas specific to their interests,” Chang added.
