Here's everything you need to know about
Many of our tutors struggled with making their online sessions more engaging and interactive. We took all the issues and put them together to create one solution for them: The Orcas Online Classroom (for free exclusively for Orcas Tutors).
Say goodbye to subscriptions, time limits and bad-internet connections!

Use this to explain a concept as if you were using a notebook. You can also enable students to collaborate too.
Don't worry about having to re-enter the classroom in the middle of your session. There is no time limit.
See what your students are writing or take notes together in real-time. You can download the file once you finish.
If you want to share something from your desktop or mobile, you can share your screen. This is currently unavailable on tablets.
If you have a file you want to share, simply upload it as a presentation. You'll be able to use the pen tool to collaborate with your students.
Play Videos in Session
Enter any video link in the classroom to watch it with your students. This can be used for listening exercises, fun facts, or simply as an ice breaker.
My Online Tutor Score
Using the Orcas Online Classroom increases the likelihood of receiving requests from international clients. Orcas is currently only selecting tutors that actively use the features available to qualify as Global Tutors.
Using the Orcas features (such as the Online Classroom and Learning Hub) allows users to experience the entire Orcas Journey. Not using them means that Orcas cannot guarantee quality. For this reason, only tutors that abide by the guidelines are selected.
