CrazyForEducation's uTutor.me website provides online video tutoring to help students quickly catch up and stay ahead the entire school year.

ST. LOUIS, Sept. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Students who forgot academic content during the summer have a resource better than summer school. CrazyForEducation, LLC provides the website uTutor.me, which offers academic content created by expert teachers, including a wide variety of math help, such as algebra, calculus, and geometry, as well as science including chemistry, physics, and more. For students, it's like having their own personal tutor for all their math and science needs, not only during the summer, but throughout the academic school year.

As reported in the article "Summer Learning Loss: The Problem and Some Solutions" by Harris Cooper, ERIC Digest, a meta-analysis including 13 studies indicated that summer learning loss equaled at least one month of instruction. The article reports, "On average, children's tests scores were at least one month lower when they returned to school in fall than scores were when students left in spring." The meta-analysis revealed summer loss was more pronounced for math facts and that all students, regardless of the resources in their home, lost roughly equal amounts of math skills over summer.

The Summer Learning Loss continues throughout the next school year if the student is not brought up to grade level. Consequently, the student may struggle for months trying to get caught up at the same time new information is presented. The uTutor.me website offers students an easy means to quickly catch up before, or at the beginning of, the school year and stay ahead all year.

Students using uTutor.me watch high-quality video lessons for middle and high school subjects. Licensed and dynamic teachers created the lessons to use in their own classrooms. The video lessons last between five to ten minutes, so students stay engaged in the material.

Whether students attended summer school or not, they benefit from constant access to the video lessons. Students watch the video lessons an unlimited number of times. Students replay all, or portions, of a video lesson to improve their learning. Students who lost or forgot information over the summer quickly catch up. The website, uTutor.me, has hundreds of math and science video lessons covering many STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) subjects.

CrazyForEducation CEO Dr. Renato Cataldo makes this observation: "For any parent whose child has ever had even one academic challenge in school, online video tutoring can be a stress-relieving solution for them. Parents no longer have to pay the high prices that private tutors charge."

CrazyForEducation, LLC is a St. Louis-based educational company dedicated to finding new ways for students of all ages, grades, and ability levels to succeed in academics. The company provides free technological software, training, and support for teachers, schools, and school districts around the world using or wanting to use the Flip Teaching methodology.
