Here are the answers to the most frequent questions. If you have other questions, please contact us. We will be happy to assist you.
add Where does the name Sofia come from?
In ancient Greek, "Sophia" means wisdom. As wisdom stems from knowledge and tutors transmit knowledge, we thought Sofia was the perfect name for our service.
add When will Sofia be ready to use?
We are planning to launch Sofia in September 2016, just in time for the new school year but we will be testing beta versions before then. However, you don't need to wait to sign up! If you sign up immediately, you will be informed of Sofia's development and you will be amongst the first to use the service.
add Will Sofia be available outside of Montreal?
For the moment, we are focusing on Montreal. When Sofia has been thoroughly tested and proven successful, we intend to expand the service to other canadian and american cities.
add How will the transactions be handled?
All the transactions will be made by credit card and will be processed automatically via PayPal or Stripe. In the event of an erroneous transaction, contact us for a correction.
add For which subjects do you offer tutoring?
As of September 2016, we will offer tutoring for the following subjects at elementary and high school levels: French, English, Maths, General Sciences, Chemistry, Physics, Social Sciences (History, Geography, Ethics). We will eventually extend our offer of tutoring to subjects at the CEGEP and university level.
add What can I do if I do not like a tutor?
After the first session, you can request a change if you feel the tutor does not fulfill your expectations. After subsequent sessions, we request that you contact us and we will take appropriate action.
