Tutoring for Current College Students
In August, 2020, we launched a new initiative geared toward college course preparation. Students who find themselves underprepared for college-level courses can now benefit from one-on-one tutoring with our volunteers. To expand this program, we have partnered with Virtual Tutoring Team (VTT), a virtual teaching initiative working to supplement foreign and domestic education given challenges resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. VTT has over 250 volunteers and can provide help with any course. Additionally, VTT has a database of pre-recorded lessons that have proved especially useful during this time.
High school success does not necessarily dictate college success. This is most evident throughout the STEM field, as many students who fared well in high school begin struggle with aspects of the pre-med track. These struggles often are a result of an education system that disadvantages students due to their economic background and/or race.
We want this to change. Every student, regardless of their educational and economic background, should be equipped with the skills necessary to succeed in college. For this reason, we now offer tutoring to current college students.
