ADE offering free online tutoring to prepare for the ACT
The Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) has launched a partnership with schoolhouse.world, a free online tutoring platform for middle and high school students who need support in math and preparing for the ACT.
This partnership provides equitable access to live tutoring in mathematics, one of the best supports for struggling learners. Schoolhouse.world is a new nonprofit organization created by Sal Khan, founder of the Khan Academy, and Shishir Mehrotra, co-founder, and CEO of Coda, in response to students falling behind due to COVID-19.
“We are excited about this new partnership, which brings high-quality tutoring to Arkansas students at no charge,” ADE Secretary Johnny Key said. “I want to also encourage Arkansas educators, students, and community members to consider signing up to become tutors. This platform offers a great opportunity not only for learners who need additional assistance but also Arkansans who can share their knowledge and expertise with students around the world.”
The online tutoring sessions generally range in size from two-to-six attendees and can be accessed during the school year and summer. All sessions are conducted through Zoom, and to maximize security, sessions and student interactions are recorded and monitored.
