Online Tutoring Equipment Requirements

Online Tutoring Equipment Requirements

Every Read Right Online Tutoring student must have access to a:

  • Computer with high speed Internet access
  • Webcam
  • Headset with microphone

Prior to your first tutoring session, our staff will walk you through the computer system requirements (Internet connectivity speed, memory, disk space, etc.) Once we’ve helped you check your system for the basics, we will email you a link to download the free user version of Blackboard Collaborate’s online conferencing software used during every Read Right Online Tutoring session. If you are unsure about your system’s connectivity and capacity, no worries! We will do a trial run with you to see that everything works.

It is really that easy! We want you, your child, your teen or your employee to get the reading help they need. Whatever your comfort level with computer and online technology, our staff is here to help you get started. We will help you with the technical part of online tutoring for reading. So all you have to do is learn to read better!

We were blown away the first time when we went and looked at the students' [Gates-MacGinitie] test results. ...The thing that has probably been the most surprising by-product has been the student success in classes other than reading. Our ELA teachers have all just lauded the program ...We started hearing that reaction from our science, our math, and our social studies teachers, as well. The biggest improvement that we saw initially was actually the test results in those areas. …Not only can I recommend it as a solution, I can recommend it as THE solution.
