How Stride Tutoring Works

  • In your Stride Tutoring calendar, you’ll indicate your availability for 30- or 60- minute sessions.

  • When a student requests a tutoring session, you will be notified automatically.

  • You’ll schedule a virtual meeting with your student.

  • Students can upload questions and topics in advance, so you’ll have time to prepare targeted lessons.

  • After each tutoring session, you’ll leave feedback for the student and parent/legal guardian so they can continue their work until the next session.
