Frequently Asked Questions
How does one-on-one ultrasound tutoring work online?
One benefit of our program is having the convenience of an ultrasound tutor anywhere you may be. Much like videoconferencing, we use a program for live chat with video, which includes a whiteboard. This means we can see you, and you can see and talk to us as if we were in the same room. The added feature of a whiteboard allows for images, diagrams, and drawings to be shown during a tutoring session. This makes the session more visual and interactive.
What is WebEx, and how do I use it?
WebEx is a free program that incorporates live video chat with other features that make online tutoring easy. Signing up for a WebEx account is free. For smartphone and tablet users, there is a free app that functions as if you were on a laptop or desktop. To be sure that you have no problem with the first meeting, our tutors will be on standby a few minutes early to walk you through the process or help you with any snags you encounter.
How much does a tutoring session cost?
Sessions cost is $40/hour. Each client will receive all study materials, tests, and quizzes, plus a mock SPI (taken at the end of the course) all of which are included in the hourly rate.
How many hours of tutoring is required?
There is no minimum or maximum requirement. Progress is largely dependent on each individual client. We do our best to ensure each client has a thorough understanding of the information covered before moving on to the next lesson. However, adequate study time and preparation on the part of the client will help move the sessions along at a quicker pace. Many can complete the course within 15 sessions (give or take).
How do I pay for my sessions?
The day of your scheduled meeting time, you will receive a PayPal invoice. You can pay with a credit card or through your PayPal account (if you have one). Setting up an account is not necessary to pay for your tutoring. Payment is expected prior to the appointment.
What if I work long hours/ have a fluctuating schedule?
We recognize the hectic schedules many individuals have. Given this, we strive to be accommodating and flexible. We will work with you to figure out a day and time that is convenient.
