The Host & Care online community can help parents find tutors who will work in exchange for room and board: a low-cost option for struggling parents who want their children to succeed academically.
Pennington, New Jersey - March 31, 2009 - Experts estimate that at least 20% of all American school children need tutoring if they are going to excel scholastically. While free tutoring is made available through the 2001 No Child Left Behind act to students from low income families, working class and middle class children may have few options for receiving the help they need. Although parents can provide motivation and some homework assistance, they often have to juggle their responsibilities, as well as the needs of their other children, so committing several hours a night to providing help in math or science might not be feasible.
The crisis and the guilt for parents unable to provide tutoring to their children may be over thanks to a new online community which has found a revolutionary way to solve the problem. Some might call the system bartering but it comes down to a single concept: helping one another.
The free Host & Care community brings people together in such a way that they can help one another meet their needs. For parents in need of tutoring for children, for example, they can find another member who can provide that tutoring. In exchange, they may offer free room and board to the member who could be a traveler wanting to see a different part of the world, a college student struggling to pay for school and a place to live, or a newly unemployed worker needing a home while he or she gets back on their feet.
Trusting children with a stranger even in one's own home might seem a bit scary but the Host & Care community takes many steps to help people feel more comfortable with the arrangement. The site features Web 2.0 elements that allow both parties to communicate via video or chat so they can get to know one another better. The site also offers discounted prices on background and reference checks so users can make sure the person they are talking to is who they say they are.
Through Host & Care, parents can find an affordable way to provide their children with tutoring while also helping someone else who needs short-term assistance.
