Studiosity

Unfortunately you are currently unable to use the Studiosity app with your Logan Libraries Studiosity account. We are working to have this feature available to users in the future.

Online tutors provide direction, guidance, feedback, support, prompting, and help students get ‘unstuck’. Because getting stuck and overcoming that struggle efficiently and effectively - at the moment of need - is crucial.

With tightly upheld ethical standards and policies, teachers and parents are assured that the help students receive is contributing to their capability to think for themselves - they employ a strict ‘no answers’ policy.

Tutors are randomly allocated to students, according to their availability. The student chooses their subject and is placed in the queue for the next available tutor.

 

The online tutors are quality teachers, university experts and other subject-experts. Each one has had strict checks before joining the network of tutors.
