Though originally aimed at teaching Hindi to Indian children in
the US, an Indian American has launched a virtual tutoring portal
for teaching various academic levels as well as 18 languages.
TheETutor.com, an educational online tutoring company, started by
Harry Aurora, CEO, and Preeti Aurora, managing director, was
launched by Nassau county executive, Edward P. Mangano, at a
function in Long Island, New York last week.
Describing the state-of-art virtual portal as a revolution in
learning, Aurora said the students participate in one-on-one
tutoring led by superb tutors from the comfort of their home.
TheETutor.com provides help with all subjects for Kindergarten
through twelfth grade (K-12) besides 18 languages including
Spanish, French, German, Mandarin and Italian.
Hicksville-based TheETutor.com, was initially established with the
mission of teaching Hindi and other Indian languages to Indian
American children with the goal of preserving their culture and
heritage, Aurora said.
However, in the development phase over the past year, Aurora and
his team realised that there was a demand for other languages and
Aurora said his motto: "The future is here!" signifies that
TheETutor has the technological advancements to teach their
students through a virtual medium.
The technology includes an embedded whiteboard, built-in video and
voice chat, image and file-sharing and even a feature to record
the tutoring session.
TheETutor has nearly 100 qualified tutors on board ranging from
college students to PhDs who are certified in various subjects.
The fees range from $35 to $100 per lesson depending on the
subject grade and/or language.
"What we offer will be most welcome in remote and far-flung areas
where people would have only dreamt of tutoring for their
children," said Aurora.
