HopeNet will provide two types of remote eTutoring assistance to the Hopefuls including Instant eTutoring and Private eTutoring. The eTutoring service provides assistance that supplements our self-service Knowledge Portal. eTutoring is not meant to be used by the Hopefuls until they have first used their best efforts to answer their questions through the Knowledge Portal.

Through the Instant eTutoring program Hopefuls can post questions online related to their studies and those questions can then be answered by volunteer tutors. Similar to a librarian, the Volunteers will use their best efforts to guide the Hopefuls to discovering the answers to their questions through the Knowledge Portal, rather than simply answering the question for the Hopeful. The questions are filtered by category, so that they can then be directed to tutors who specialize in that particular subject area. A nominal Hope Credit fee is charged to the Hopefuls for each questioned asked. Through the Instant eTutoring program volunteer eTutors with specialized skills can provide invaluable assistance to a range of Hopefuls without having to make a substantial time commitment. The software is undergoing testing, and will launch first quarter 2012.

The Private eTutoring program will enable the Hopefuls to receive one-on-one tutoring by volunteer eTutors. Traditional tutoring programs require both the child and the tutor to be in the same place at the same time, but that requirement requires a great deal of logistical support and is often impractical. Through the HopeNet Private eTutoring program volunteer-eTutors can provide dedicated one-on-one tutoring to the Hopefuls from and to virtually any location in the world. Private eTutors and the Hopefuls will be able to IM/chat, talk and and see each other in real-time, as well as the tutor can see exactly what the Hopeful child is doing on the computer and guide them appropriately. The Hopefuls and eTutors can even share their computer screen and mouse/keyboard controls should they choose to. For example a tutor/artist located in the U.S. can teach a child to use a graphic editing software, or a teacher located in China can help a child practice the Chinese language. When the tutor is off-line the child can then practice the language on his own using artificial intelligence software.
