This fall, the Southborough Library began hosting a free tutoring program run by St. Mark’s School students. It returns next week.

This time around, they’ve shared more details on topics the tutors are happy to help tackle:

Sessions are designed to aid students looking for help with school work in any subjects including all levels of math, foreign languages (Spanish and French), science, writing, and reading practice (for younger 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 to me that the program was initiated by a St. Mark’s student.

Student Selina Wu worked since last spring to launch it with help from other students experienced at helping children. (They previously volunteered through 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 is currently scheduled to run through early June with a few breaks for vacations and holidays. (You can find the calendar listings on the Library website.)

If you have questions about the program, you can email Selina Wu at
