This fall, the Southborough Library is hosting a free tutoring program run by St. Mark’s School students. The program runs on Monday afternoons from 3:30 – 4:30 pm in the downstairs Eaton Meeting Room.

The school’s Community Service Program coordinator Lee Wells explained that the program was initiated by a St. Mark’s student.

Student Selina Wu worked since the spring to launch it. Students running it all have experience helping at the Boys and Girls Club and/or Immaculate Conception Extended Day Program.

Wells shared on Facebook:

They are happy to be “homework coaches” as well as tutors. So if your son or daughter doesn’t really need any specific subject help, but just needs a little help staying on task and getting the homework done, then these students would be happy to help. Please take advantage of this program. 

The program began on October 2nd and is currently listed on the Library calendar as running on Mondays through December 4th. I asked Wells about the plans going forward and she responded:

The students are planning on doing it at least through mid November (fall athletic season) If there is enough interest we can expand to other days of the week and/or fall and spring.
