Outschool’s 4,000+ Vetted Tutors Now Available to Book on the UrbanSitter Platform
March 28, 2023 (SAN FRANCISCO) – UrbanSitter, an app and website that makes it easier than ever for families to book trusted child care, elder care, pet sitting, tutoring and household services, today announces a partnership with Outschool, an innovative education platform that offers individual tutors and small-group classes online.
With the addition of Outschool, UrbanSitter members now have access to even more high-quality, affordable one-on-one tutors. By searching for “teaching skills” or “homework help” in the UrbanSitter platform, parents can choose from Outschool’s 4,000+ vetted private tutors and book the one that best fits their goals, schedule and price point.
“We’re always looking to add new features and access to more skilled providers in order to make the lives of busy parents easier,” said Lynn Perkins, CEO and co-founder of UrbanSitter. “We’re excited about the addition of Outschool, which provides our families with more flexible options for virtual academic assistance and homework support for their children.”
UrbanSitter families now have access to Outschool’s tutors who provide individualized, structured learning experiences for children who need help mastering a certain skill or subject, require homework assistance, or need support preparing for a standardized test. Tutoring takes place online and varies in frequency and length, including part-time, afternoons, evenings, and once-a-week engagements. Group tutoring and enrichment are also available from over 8,000 educators.
Through the integration, UrbanSittter families can now access popular Outschool tutoring options for:
- Phonics and reading
- Singapore math
- Support for dyslexic readers
- Mandarin Chinese
- SAT prep
Outschool’s virtual tutoring sessions typically range from $20-$35/hr, as opposed to in-person options that cost $40-$80/hr, offering UrbanSitter families a more convenient and cost effective option without long-term commitments or upfront payments.
“We’re focused on enabling more families to access high-quality, convenient support for their kids’ education, “ said Outschool’s founder and CEO, Amir Nathoo, “so we’re delighted to add Outschool tutors and classes to the range of critical services for families that UrbanSitter offers.”
