     Free Online Tutoring Available For middle And High School Students

    STATEHOUSE (Nov. 22, 2021) – Students in grades 8-12 can now access free tutoring programs through a new state partnership withschoolhouse.world, according to Vanderburgh County lawmakers.

    The online resource provides help with SAT preparation, math courses and Advanced Placement classes. According to State Rep. Wendy McNamara (R-Evansville), 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. McNamara said as students temporarily learned from home or had extended absences, they lost critical learning.

    “Indiana’s education system faced unprecedented challenges during the pandemic,” McNamara said. “Teachers, students and families all deserve recognition for pivoting and making adjustments to make sure learning continued. Free online tutoring can help those who suffered learning loss due to school closures, remote learning and other challenges.”

    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.

    “These trained tutors help prepare Hoosier students to tackle a variety of subjects,” said State Rep. Tim O’Brien (R-Evansville). “Whether preparing for college entrance exams or trying to boost your grades, online tutoring can be an effective resource.”

    State Rep. Matt Hostettler (R-Patoka) said 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.

    “Sometimes students need extra help outside of the classroom but not everyone can afford to hire a tutor,” Hostettler said. “This free online service offers one-on-one help, regardless of one’s income.”

    Hostettler 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.
