MyGuru Announces Partnership with Elemental Learning

Posted by Mark Skoskiewicz on Mon, Sep 06, 2010 @ 09:26 AM

MyGuru recently signed a partnership with Elemental Learning, a Naperville-based tutoring company that shares its vision for high quality, affordable 1-1 tutoring.

Unlike MyGuru, Elemental Learning focuses on meeting the educational needs of K-8 students.  It accomplishes this by using only certified teachers, who it screens by requesting references and discussing previous tutoring experiences and teaching philosophies.

This is a perfect fit with MyGuru, which focuses on older high school students (particularly for ACT and SAT prep) through graduate school students with 1-1 tutoring and test prep.  Elemental Learning’s typical student might be in 5th grade – while many of MyGuru’s students are in college or graduate school taking advanced statistics, business, or science courses.  MyGuru also maintains an active focus on GMAT, LSAT, MCAT, and GRE tutoring solutions.Details of the partnership include the following:

    • All of MyGuru’s appropriate tutors (i.e., those who are certified teachers), will be available to work with Elemental Learning students when needed

    • MyGuru will be Elemental Learning’s exclusive test prep provider in the city of Chicago and its Northwestern and Northern suburbs

    • The companies will be able to refer students to one another whenever tutor location or availability becomes an issue for either one
