The Barton Remote Tutoring System
I love using Barton Remote Tutoring System on Whizzimo! I have many online students, and this saves me so much time. Each lesson is complete, including all of the student pages, eliminating the need to waste time during lessons. Some of my in-person students also prefer using Whizzimo now for their lessons because my ability to move faster between activities keeps them more engaged.- Betty Macomber
I have been a Whizzimo user for over a year and have loved the opportunities it gives me with its interactive letter tiles when working with my students in an online setting. As a Barton tutor, I enjoy the ease of use of the pre-loaded Barton lessons within Whizzimo. It is a wonderful time saver for Barton tutors. Not only will I continue to use the Barton specific lessons, this system also gives me the option of creating my own review lessons and targeted word lists using Whizzimo’s core functionality to further individualize my tutoring for each student.- Darlene Larson
