Another free tutoring services for students

A group of Algonquin students asked me to let the community know about their free tutoring service.

Sboro Tutors flyerThe new group “Sboro Tutors” is made up of five Algonquin sophomores offering sessions over zoom. The quintet will focus on helping students in grades K-5.

The flyer shows their services available Mondays – Fridays from 3:00 – 7:00 pm.

The students promote:

Our goal is to help students understand what they are learning during this challenging time. We can help with any subject and any age group at the elementary level. These 30 to 45 minute zoom sessions are free of charge! Your student will zoom one on one with one of the Algonquin sophomores

The service joins other free tutoring services that have already been supporting the community during the pandemic. So, I’m also including reminders of those services below.

They include services helping students in grades from PreK to college and adult learners. Many of the tutors offering help are also teens from Algonquin and our community.

Back in early July, I informed readers of another group of students offering their services. Iridium Tutoring was founded by six friends offering help on a variety of K-12 subjects. Since then, it grew to include 60+ volunteers who have tutored over 180 students in over 1,000 tutoring session. You can read more here. (Since my coverage, the group has been covered by a number of news outlets.)

Later that month, I shared news from Algonquin’s principal about another tutoring service founded by two ARHS students, Apitutor. Their website explains their tutoring support for preK-12 students:

Aptitutor is tailored to connect qualified high school tutors to preK-12 students that are seeking aid with various academic subjects. Our tutors are knowledgeable in a wide range of subjects, ranging from elementary curriculum all the way to AP course work. Additionally, Aptitutor gamifies the experience of learning with a fun badge system. We offer Zoom classes as well as one-on-one Zoom tutoring sessions that you can enjoy from the comfort of your home!

Another free tutoring service run by Algonquin students is much more specialized. That’s the Algonquin Writing Center. The free tutoring service focused on helping ARHS students improve their writing skills:

the Algonquin Writing Center is available to all students working on any project at any stage of the writing process. Tutors are trained to provide individualized feedback to meet the needs of any writer who enters the center.

The program was launched in 2016. Last spring, the AWC enhanced its website to allow them to help students learning remotely. You can read more about them here.

Meanwhile, the Southborough Library has also been offering patrons access to a free tutoring service. Brainfuse’s Help Now service offers access to live tutoring and study support for K-12 and college students. They also have a program to support adult learners. You can learn more here.
