The Parsec Youth Network is offering free remote tutoring services to Ontario Students.
Parsec Youth Network has created an initiative to offer students, from grades 1-12, free access to online tutoring services during the COVID-19 pandemic. Their mission is to help out children and parents who are worried about the cancellation of classes and the transition to online learning.
As schools shift to online learning due to COVID-19, students will be presented with a challenging transition that makes access to academic help more difficult. This is especially true for those whose families may not be able to afford it during stressful times like these, and those whose caregivers are working overtime at the front-lines of the crisis. For this reason, The Parsec Youth Network has committed to building a community of volunteers to help with this initiative, and provide a valuable resource for parents.
Tutoring sessions will be provided remotely (via Skype, Google Hangouts, etc.) by higher-level students (ver 100 high school, college/university and medical students have signed up as tutors so far, and are excited to start tutoring!).
Registration is open to students from all locations in Ontario and once signed up, volunteers will work to match students up with the appropriate tutors (by subject, availability, etc).
