How it Works

Virtual Study Hall

Our study halls are offered online, through Google Hangouts, Monday to Thursday each week.  Study halls are content specific with 3 expert teachers/ tutors and 6-10 students. Here's how it works:

  1. Go to our offerings page and subscribe to the study halls(s) of your choice (search by time and subject area). 

  2. Each night at the set time, your student will go to their study hall page and join their study hall.

  3. When they join, they will mute themselves and turn their screens off for privacy and to eliminate distraction. 

  4. They will be greeted by their tutors and begin working independently.  When help is needed, your student can reserve an 8-min one-on-one session with a specific tutor by writing their name at the desired time. (Those windows of time can also be scheduled in advance.) 

  5. If more help is needed, the student can reserve a second 8-minute block and/or schedule a Timely Tutoring block after the study hall (or for a different day).

  6. A follow up email is sent after study hall each night, detailing what the student worked on.

  7. At the end of each week, your family is charged only for the time used that week!

 
Timely Tutoring
Timely Tutoring is Superstudy's time sensitive tutoring, structured to fit a student’s learning profile and nightly needs. Sessions can be split into chunks to better benefit your student’s learning.  Here’s how it works:

  1. Select a tutor from your studyhall and reserve 1 or more 15 minute sessions.

  2. Meet the tutor online for the one-on-one session(s).  

  3. A follow up email is sent at the end of each day, detailing what the student worked on. 

  4. At the end of each week, your family is charged only for the time used that week. ​​

What are the benefits of a Superstudy hall?


Quality: Students can work with exceptional content tutors (of their choosing) that they know and trust every day.
Consistency: Students have a set time to work and receive support with the same expert tutors
EVERY DAY .
Choice: A student can try working with 3-4 tutors and then identify the tutors who he/she works best with.
Flexibility: While students can get support every day, they are in control of when they get help and for how long.
Cost: Families only pay for the time that students spend one on one with a tutor.
Protection: Regardless of what happens in their day, students know that in study hall they can get support every day.




How does a Superstudy hall work?


Every day, at a set time, a student logs onto a 1 hour, secure, content specific (e.g. Algebra 1) study hall with 3 tutors and 8 other students. The tutors are visible and welcome all the students to the study hall. The students are muted with screens darkened, to minimize distraction. Students begin working independently and when a student needs help, he/she signs up for an 8 minute time slot with the tutor of their choice.




What are the benefits of Timely Tutoring?


Timely Tutoring is efficient one on one tutoring that reimagines timing structure. These are 1 on 1 sessions that in 15 minutes chunks. These can be split into chunks to better benefit the student’s learning. These sessions offer more time than study hall sessions and allow students and tutors to work with greater depth. These sessions are best for supporting students around big concepts, themes, and topics. Here are some examples of ways that timely tutoring sessions can be used to support students: Traditional: 30 minute consecutive session where a teacher clarifies a big picture idea- how the subjunctive works, the quadratic formula, the Stamp Act of 1765, F=MA. Essay edit: Tutor gives a student outlining support for 15 minutes, the student writes for 45 minutes and then the tutor gives 15 minutes of feedback afterward. Total tutoring time: 30 minutes Motivating: A tutor and student work together for 15 minutes at the start of an assignment, then 15 minutes at the midway point. Total Tutoring: 30 minutes Start/Stop: A tutor and student work together for 15 minutes at the start of an assignment, and then after the student finishes the assignment, the tutor checks the student's work and clarifies any points of confusion. Total Tutoring: 30 minutes




How can parents best support their child with this model?


In the first week, have your student schedule a free 1 on1 session with each of the tutors in the study hall. This helps your student know which tutors s/he works well with. It also gives the tutors a sense of how best to support your child.
