Students often want to keep working with the same tutor after having a great experience! We make it easy to book future sessions or to reconnect right away if the tutor is available when the student wants to meet!
If you reconnect with a student within a few hours, your recent work with that student will show up in the whiteboard so that you can reference it easily during your session. This is especially helpful if a session gets cut off!
