One on one virtual tutoring
in short blocks of time 
with the same expert tutors

every school day

 A Smarter Way to Get Smarter

On call tutoring with the same expert Monday through Thursday

How does it work?


Virtual Studyhall is run by 3 tutors who are expert teachers in the same subject area. During a 1 hour block of time, every school night, these 3 tutors are on call for a student. Students can book 10 minute, on demand sessions with any of these tutors. Families pay a subscription fee (currently waived) and for any sessions a student books.




How does it help?


What is it: Daily sessions where the same 3 tutors are on call for a student during a one hour block of time. A student is guaranteed a one on one session with a tutor every night, if they want it. How it works: A student signs up for a study hall. Whenever a student wants or needs support, they can book an immediate one on one session with the tutor that they know and trust. How does it help: It is difficult to predict when a student might need support, a study hall offers structure (3 tiers) and guarantees a student immediate support, as they do their homework every night. ​




What does it cost?


All sessions are billed at the rate of $1.20/ minute





Prescheduled tutoring sessions booked in 15 minute increments

How does it work?


A family books Timely Tutoring session(s) with a tutor and then the student meets that tutor in a virtual video conference for the allotted time.




How does it help?


How does it help: With 15 minute increments, sessions are tailored to a student's specific needs. A student could book a 30 minute session at 3:00 pm for support and then a 15 minute session at 4:30 to follow up.




What does it cost?


All sessions are billed at the rate of $1.20/ minute

More than teachers. Experts.

Superstudy invites only the best grade 6 - 12 teachers to use our platform (less than 1% of applicants). Some of our teachers come from independent schools. Some of them come from high-performing public schools. Many of them have been named Teacher of the Year in their districts. And all of them are here to help your student.  

 

Let’s say you have a precalculus student who needs help with parametric equations. When your child joins a study hall, they get more than support from tutors with a math background, they get assistance from instructors who teach precalculus all day, every day. There’s no better way to ensure your student gets the personalized help they need.

FAQs

What platform do you use for one on one sessions?


We use the zoom platform. Students sign up for a session on their study hall page and click the zoom link to join. For connected and supported study hall students, students first join a zoom webinar in which they are greeted and supported before joining their one on one session




What does the Zoom study hall motivational coach do?


The motivational coach offers support, structure, and motivation for each student. Imagine a combination of a cheerleader/ concierge/ coach. In the zoom session, the coach will be direct messaging each student to see what they are working on, helping them to get started, and encouraging them verbally as they work through the block. The coach will also be reminding students of upcoming sessions and answering quick questions over text.




How does a student or parent sign up for a one on one session in a study hall?


Students or their parents can sign up for a session by going to their study hall webpage (included at signout) and putting their name at the appropriate time with the appropriate tutor. See video




For the supported study, what does the executive functioining coach do?


The executive functioning coach meets one on one with a student and helps a student structure their day. The coach will help a student to identify what assignments are most pressing, how long each will take, check in on outstanding work, and help make a reasonable plan to give some structure to the student.




Who benefits from each model of study hall?


Timely Tutoring is for students who need lengthy check ins to explain content, plan larger assignments, or complete work. These are useful for essays, studying for tests, and quizzes, or for students who have fallen behind in their work. Self Directed Study Halls are for students who have no trouble starting their work and creating structure for themselves, but want the academic insurance of having experts there to support them when they encounter a roadblock-difficult problem, etc. Connected Study Halls are for students who have difficulty starting their work, are prone to procrastination and need a little bit more structure and encouragement in their routine. They know what they need to do, they just struggle to get started. Most of our study hall students are in connected study halls. Supported Study Halls are for students who need personalized one on one support in planning their daily homework regimen. These students typically struggle to keep track of assignments, due dates, and timelines. Additionally, they often struggle to get started in their work and need some more encouragement as they complete their work.




Can a student (or parent) book a study hall session before the study hall starts?


Absolutely. Booking a session early ensures that a student gets support with their preferred tutor at the start of a study hall. This is particularly useful for students who were confused during class, felt overwhelmed by an assignment, or are nervous about an assessment.




My student is reluctant to book a one on one session, even though they need it. What should I do?


Many students struggle to reach out initially, particularly with a tutor they don't know. That's why the 1st session with a new tutor is free. It gives the student and tutor an opportunity to check in. It also allows the student to meet 3 different tutors to identify who they most connect with and who they are most comfortable asking for help. Students talk about enjoying having this agency in the tutoring process. Once the student has identified their preferred tutor, we recommend that the parent and student book a few sessions together, to help demonstrate how easy it is and get the student more comfortable asking for help.
