Tips for tutoring with ThinkingStorm:
  • Send materials in advance to assignments@thinkingstorm.com.  This allows the tutor time to know the content of the lesson for the tutoring session and time to prepare materials and examples.
  • Files may be shared in MS Office (Word, PowerPoint, Excel), PDF, and image (.jpg, ,gif, and,png) formats in ThinkingStorms online classrooms.  Uploading files is especially beneficial when there are complicated diagram-based problems.
  • If you are unsure of the subject, contact the support team at care@thinkingstorm.com. (For example, sometimes math is involved in accounting and sometimes statistics is involved in business courses.)
