Across a wide variety of institutions at different academic levels in the U.S., the quality of mathematics and science instruction in particular is often embarrassingly poor. Instead of becoming engaged in the mind-expanding conceptual learning that these fields can offer, students are learning to rely on rote memorization and endless formula sheets as crutches. Consequently, very few students actually come away from their courses with the kinds of problem-solving and critical thinking skills that aid in future success, in both academics and the "real world." Memorization-based learning has its (useful) role, but it should by no means stand alone.

Noodle says

GotIt! proudly advertises to potential tutors that they can sign up and start tutoring within minutes, which means that initial listing on the site requires no meaningful assurance that the tutor is skilled or knowledgeable. As a result, as is generally the case with listing services, you should be very careful when selecting a tutor from GotIt!, looking closely at ratings and reviews to ensure you get a strong tutor. GotIt! is a market for online tutoring only, and provides no meaningful training or support for its tutors beyond the use of their online tutoring platform.
