Pear Deck Tutor Named “Tutoring Solution of the Year” in 2023 EdTech Breakthrough Awards Program
LOS ANGELES – June 8, 2023 – Pear Deck Tutor (formerly, TutorMe), a GoGuardian company and an online tutoring solution creating access and opportunity for all students, today announced that it has been recognized as “Tutoring Solution of the Year” in the 5th annual EdTech Breakthrough Awards program conducted by EdTech Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies and solutions in the global educational technology market.
Pear Deck Tutor partners with schools to provide 24/7, on-demand online tutoring to students across all grade levels. The platform enables students to interact with a tutor live, with video and voice functionality, at no cost, so that all students have equitable access to impactful tutoring.
With Pear Deck Tutor, students engage face-to-face with tutors that provide differentiated support and bridge knowledge gaps in TutorMe’s Learning Space. Tutors can use virtual whiteboards, text and code editing, and screen sharing. If students need a refresh, they can revisit archived sessions. Students are also able to work with writing experts through the Writing Lab, getting valuable, on-demand feedback on essays and other assignments.
Additional benefits to educators and administrators include advanced analytics, including student usage, progress, and more. The Client Dashboard is designed to be a transparent resource for teachers looking at class-wide or individual progress and challenges, enabling teachers to plan interventions, adjust future lessons and ensure appropriate use.
“Congratulations to Pear Deck Tutor for being our ‘Tutoring Solution of the Year.’ Administrators, teachers, and students are faced with the challenge of closing learning gaps that occurred as a result of the pandemic. One-on-one tutoring is an optimum solution that can improve outcomes for students, however, it isn’t always possible for teachers to provide it on a daily or even weekly basis,” said James Johnson, managing director, EdTech Breakthrough. “Pear Deck Tutor scales tutoring support in a way that's efficient and accessible for schools, with flexible opportunities to learn no matter the location, time of day, or teacher availability.”
The mission of the EdTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of educational technology categories, including Student Engagement, School Administration, Adaptive Learning, STEM Education, Remote Learning, Career Preparation and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 2,400 nominations from over 16 different countries throughout the world.
“We set out to close both learning and opportunity gaps, while ultimately improving outcomes and sending students into their next in-class lesson with confidence and readiness. We’re thrilled to receive this award from EdTech Breakthrough, and teachers need the supplemental support we offer now more than ever,” said Kyle Baker, Chief of Staff at Pear Deck Tutor. “Aside from helping teachers get valuable time back and elevate student progress, our focus is on increasing equitable access to academic support for all students with high-quality, one-on-one tutoring tailored to their unique learning style.”
Since its inception, Pear Deck Tutor has conducted 810,000 live tutoring sessions, supplementing in class material to over 1.5 million students in 300 subjects.
