CMASAS Tutor Advantage Program
The vast majority of our students work without a tutor while utilizing our instructional support staff throughout their years at CMASAS. A few of our students enjoy having a tutor work with them every step of the way within a course and across all their courses. CMASAS recommends an in home (face-to-face) tutoring service. However, for those students who prefer an online tutor, CMASAS may be able to provide tutoring services.
Our course instructors meet with students regularly to assist with specific questions regarding an assignment or to help understand a particularly difficult concept. While this support is enough for many students, we have found that some students may need a more intensive instructional support system with a particularly difficult course or subject. Introducing CMASAS Tutoring Advantage.
With the CMASAS Tutoring Advantage, our tutors provide a more personalized approach to tutoring for those who need additional assistance beyond the instructional support provided by an instructor.
CMASAS Tutors motivate and encourage students to work through challenges and complete coursework in a timely manner. CMASAS Tutors focus their attention on improving students' understanding of concepts and help to infuse and sharpen skills in all subject areas.
The CMASAS tutor advantage includes tutors who have a broad knowledge of CMASAS curriculum, are in direct contact with student instructors and PECs, and are highly skilled in working with students in a personalized setting.
Students will be able to access tutoring services during days and times that fit into their own schedule based on tutor availability. Student accounts will be checked to verify that tutoring services have been activated on the student account and that funds are available for the time requested.

Frequently Asked Questions About CMASAS Online Tutoring
Does my student have to be a CMASAS student to use CMASAS tutoring services?
Yes, the CMASAS Tutor Advantage program is designed for current students who attend CMASAS. Our tutors work with the CMASAS curriculum and instructors, providing supplemental instruction for students who are struggling in a particular subject.
Does online tutoring really work?
CMASAS typically recommends in-home tutoring services for students who need additional help with our curriculum. That said, for some students, face-to-face tutoring is either not an option or not preferred. In such circumstances, online tutoring can prove to be very effective, particularly when tutoring is provided by CMASAS tutors who are familiar with our curriculum and able to communicate with your child’s instructors directly.
How much does online tutoring cost?
Our online tutoring services start at $50 an hour, with discounts for purchasing 5-hour and 10-hour packages.
How long are online tutoring sessions?
CMASAS online tutoring sessions are as long as students need them to be. Billing is in 15 minute increments and after each Adobe Connect tutoring session, a date and time stamp will be used to track the amount of prepaid tutoring time that has been used.
How do I know if my child needs tutoring?
The benefit of CMASAS is that students can work through subjects and concepts at their own pace, moving onto new topics once they’ve achieved mastery. If a child is stuck on one concept and can’t seem to master it even after spending an extended amount of time on it, it’s a sign that they may need the help of a tutor. You may also notice that your child is feeling less enthusiastic about their classes or hesitates to complete their assignments.
