Free Tutoring With Schoolhouse World
The New Hampshire Department of Education, in partnership with Sal Khan and Schoolhouse.world offer free tutoring to students!
The New Hampshire Department of Education announced a first in the nation program partnership with Sal Khan and Schoolhouse.world that will provide free tutoring to New Hampshire high school students. Schoolhouse.world is a platform that connects people around the world to have free, small-group tutoring sessions. It currently offers tutoring in high school math and SAT prep, with the aim of expanding across more ages and topics.
In the midst of COVID-19, the opportunity to access personalized help and dig deep into problems has been the central struggle faced by teachers, parents and students during remote and hybrid learning at-home. It is this sense of urgency that prompted Sal Khan, founder of the Khan Academy, to find a solution by partnering with his college friend, Shishir Mehrotra, cofounder and CEO of Coda. Together, with a handful of volunteers, they created Schoolhouse.world.
Schoolhouse.world first opened its virtual doors to tutors and students from the public in early 2020 through a prototype site built in Coda. People from all over the world volunteered to tutor sessions, including high school students, teachers, professionals and PhDs. Since then, the Schoolhouse.world team has run over 1,100 tutoring sessions with students from more than 40 countries, while working to develop scalable systems to monitor sessions and train new tutors.
Students interested in receiving tutoring support and both students and adults wanting to volunteer to support others can go to Schoolhouse.world for additional information.
