AdvancED Awards Full Accreditation to iTutor as a Digital Learning Institute

JERICHO, N.Y., Feb. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- iTutor®, the leading provider of live and online teaching and tutoring services for students in Grades K-12, announced today that it has received full accreditation from AdvancED®, the internationally renowned educational quality assurance organization.

Dang H. Phang, AdvancED's director of digital learning services, states, "iTutor has been awarded accreditation by the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI), the Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI).  The three listed regional agencies provide iTutor with a highly regarded accreditation that is recognized throughout the world. Congratulations on this significant recognition."

Depending upon the state, districts now have the prerogative, with iTutor's accreditation, to have their state-certified educator serve as the teacher of record and issue a student grade that can be accepted for academic credit by the district. Students at all grade levels and in all subjects can access instruction virtually, anywhere and anytime, from iTutor's educators. Dr. Dawn Eidelman, iTutor's chief academic officer, explains, "The instruction is highly personalized and is led by certified teachers in real-time video-conferencing sessions. Every session is recorded, providing schools and parents with greater transparency and accountability. For example, a parent can watch how a Common Core math lesson is taught and be able to support their child's learning."

"Being accredited by AdvancED is a critical achievement for an education organization as it speaks to high standards of teacher qualit and data-driven systems for accountability. For iTutor, a long-time partner with Laurens 56, to become accredited, speaks volumes about its commitment to high-quality education services. We welcome iTutor to the international family of AdvancED accredited schools, which includes our public-school district," says Dr. David O'Shields, Superintendent of Laurens County School District 56, in South Carolina.

"It is our mission to support our public-school partners in increasing access to education, from the homebound to the college-bound—with an affordable and high-quality solution. And in parts of the country that are experiencing a teacher shortage or that cannot offer rigorous college-readiness courses, iTutor is virtually staffing those classes for the entire academic year. This accreditation is the next step in that mission, and we are excited for the possibilities to come," says Harry Aurora, Founder and CEO of iTutor.
