Z Prep! Online Tutoring – Is It Right for You?



Club Z! Tutoring has more than 20 years of experience providing high quality, one-on-one tutoring and test prep in the comfort and convenience of students’ homes. For many students, working in a comfortable home environment, free from the distractions of a larger group, leads to better results in a shorter amount of time. But online tutoring, when provided with live, direct instruction from a qualified tutor, can also be very effective, and provide immediate solutions to struggling students who just can’t wait for their next in-home tutoring session. Enter: Z Prep! Online, Club Z!’s online tutoring and test prep service.

What is Z Prep! Online?

Z Prep! Online is the online tutoring and test prep division of Club Z! Our highly qualified Z Prep! tutors must meet all of the same stringent requirements as our Club Z! in-home tutors, including verifying credentials and degrees, relevant experience, and passing a thorough background and reference check. Each Z Prep! tutor works one-on-one using our online virtual classroom. Students can communicate with their Z Prep! tutor using the interactive white board in the virtual classroom, as well as video, microphone and/or written chat within the platform. All sessions are recorded in HD, which allows the student an opportunity to go back after a session and review an important concept, pull up notes steps to a difficult solution from the whiteboard screen captures, and more! Another benefit to Z Prep! online is that sessions can typically be scheduled within 24-48 hours of the request.

Z Prep! online works very well for students who are comfortable with a computer, and have access to high speed internet. Students can upload assignments, or use the built-in tools from the whiteboard to recreate difficult problems, or practice problem-solving skills. This is particularly effective for difficult homework assignments, quiz or test preparation, or when a student simply needs some additional reinforcement. Z Prep! online is very popular for science and math courses, as well as SAT and ACT preparation.

Z Prep! Score Booster – the Secret Weapon!

Z Prep! Score Booster is Club Z!’s online SAT and ACT diagnostic testing and video-based study tool. Students may be assigned anywhere from 1 to 6 unique ACT or SAT diagnostic tests, which can be taken online or printed for paper-and-pencil administration. Students receive instant feedback on their test performance, including videos with top notch tutors demonstrating the correct way to answer each and every question on each and every test, as well as access hundreds of additional video modules that dig deeper into the subjects tested on the ACT and SAT, and an extensive vocabulary building tool to help students improve reading fluency and better understand words on context, two major areas of focus for both the SAT and ACT.

“Not only do our students receive individualized test prep support in a 1-to-1 setting with their assigned tutor,” adds Cari Diaz, Vice President of Club Z!, “but now the student, and the assigned tutor, have access to a more detailed analysis of the student’s strengths and weaknesses, video modules to help drive home difficult concepts, multiple test-retest opportunities with the diagnostics to help improve speed and accuracy on test day, and a comprehensive vocabulary builder. It’s a real game-changer.”

The Z Prep! Score Booster is best utilized in conjunction with one of Club Z!’s proven test prep packages, but may also be available as a standalone service for students without a lot of time to prepare.
