STATEHOUSE – Students in grades 8-12 can now access free tutoring programs through a new state partnership with schoolhouse.world, according to State Rep. Chris May (R-Bedford).
The online resource provides help with SAT preparation, math courses, and Advanced Placement classes. According to May, schoolhouse.world was launched by the same person who founded Khan Academy, a non-profit organization working to provide free education opportunities around the world, in response to learning disruptions caused by COVID-19. Tutors are vetted, trained, and monitored. May said as students temporarily learned from home or had extended absences, they lost critical learning.
“Our schools have faced many challenges these past couple years, especially with shifting between online and in-person instruction during the pandemic,” May said. “Fortunately, there are free resources like this that can help students catch up, so they don’t fall behind their peers.”
Students can connect with live, small-group tutoring through Zoom at no cost, with sessions focused on SAT reading, writing, and math, including pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, calculus, and statistics. According to May, support is also available for AP courses, including AP Calculus, AP Statistics, AP Chemistry, AP Biology, AP Physics, and AP Computer Science. Visit schoolhouse.world to get help today.
May said juniors and seniors can also access free SAT practice resources through Khan Academy and the College Board. These programs provide thousands of sample questions, instant feedback, video lessons, and full-length practice tests. To get started, visit khanacademy.org or collegeboard.org.
