Celebrating One Million Tutoring Sessions
In June 2023, we hit a monumental milestone. We celebrated our one millionth tutoring session.
This milestone is a testament to the concerted efforts of passionate tutors, dedicated students, enthusiastic team members, empowering administrators, and empathetic teachers. Together, we create ripple effects of impact starting with school and university communities that are embracing the future.
Each one of you has played a vital role in reaching this momentous milestone, and we can't thank you enough. Your collective trust in our platform and persistent dedication to academic achievement that have propelled us to this landmark moment.
What this milestone really means
This isn't just about numbers. It's about the heart and soul of Pear Deck Tutor (formerly TutorMe).
From the start, our goal was to create an online tutoring platform where real human connections matter. We wanted to make learning personal and relatable.
So, as we celebrate this accomplishment, we're not just celebrating a number. We're celebrating a million unique stories of learning, growth, and success.
Our journey to effective learning
Behind the scenes, we've put a lot of work into making sure that our tutoring methods are grounded in the latest research about how people learn best. We poured over tons of scholarly articles and research papers to create our Pear Deck Tutor Logic Model. This is our roadmap for how tutoring sessions lead to better learning, improved academic performance, and happier teachers.
A shout-out to the tutors of the Pear Deck Tutor community
Reaching this milestone also highlights the power of our unique RAISE Approach - which sets a path for tutors to leading successful tutoring sessions that are grounded in learning science.
These tutors are the real heroes here. They've embraced the RAISE Approach, and helped elevate student learning. But they’ve gone even further. They’ve formed essential connections with students that will stay with these learners throughout their educational journey. They’ve been cheerleaders, mentors, and coaches. They’ve been the late night call before the big exam and the homework assistant that avoids hair-pulling frustrations.
A huge thank you
We want to say a massive thank you to everyone who's been a part of our journey. To our tutors, who tirelessly share their knowledge and passion; to our students, who trust us with their learning journeys; to our partner institutions, who believe in our mission; and to our hard-working team, who ensure Pear Deck Tutor is a platform that truly supports learning.
Our future commitment
Reaching one million sessions is a big deal. It's a testament to our dedication to high-quality tutoring and a promise to you that we'll keep improving. We're committed to enhancing our learning methodologies, refining our tools, and staying at the cutting edge of educational advancements.
As we look forward to the next million sessions and beyond, we will continue to be guided by our core belief: every student deserves a tutor who can guide them to their light bulb moment.
