Ottawa, Canada, March 17, 2020 – TutorOcean announced today that they are offering their online tutoring platform free of charge to all higher-education institutions. In addition, they have ramped up their server capacity, as well as support staff to meet the immediate demand to provide classrooms for face-to-face interactions between tutors and students.
