Improving participation

Online tutoring increases student participation -- a key element of academic success in American schools. Students can often “hide” behind their more talkative classmates in traditional classrooms, but one-on-one and small group settings encourage students to engage with their teacher. In traditional classrooms, teachers often breeze through subjects without checking for universal student understanding, but with our small class sizes and screen-sharing technology, Prestans teachers can check students’ work immediately, ensuring they have a complete grasp of the material.



Our teleconferencing software allows our teachers to see their students while they work. This helps the teachers hold the students accountable and allows them to read and respond to their student’s expressions throughout the session.




Easy-to-use portal

When you register with Prestans Online Academy, you will have access to our easy-to-use, personalized online portal. Our portal makes enrolling in classes, selecting your schedule, and entering your online classroom a simple and intuitive experience. Students and their parents can also use the portal to track student progress, read teacher feedback, learn about the Prestans faculty’s professional experience, and explore other course offerings. With all of this important information in one place, it is easy for students and parents to stay up-to-date with and engaged in the student’s learning.

Prestans Online Academy pairs the best American independent school teachers with eager international students who leave our program prepared for academic success. That is the Prestans difference.
