Indiana Department of Education and Schoolhouse.world offering free online tutoring to students
INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Department of Education is partnering with a nonprofit tutoring organization to help students in grades eight through 12 prepare for the SAT, Advanced Placement courses, and more.
Students will have access to free online tutoring through Schoolhouse.world, which was launched in early 2020 by Sal Khan, founder of Khan Academy, in response to learning disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The nonprofit connects students with live, small-group tutoring through Zoom.
“All students learn differently, and many need some level of extra support at different points in time,” said Dr. Katie Jenner, Indiana Secretary of Education. “This partnership provides access to personalized tutoring 24/7 at the click of a mouse. As we work to recover from significant learning impacts due to COVID-19, particularly in mathematics, this partnership with Schoolhouse.world will provide Hoosier students -- no matter where they are or the needs they face -- access to additional learning support.”
Tutoring with Schoolhouse.world currently focuses on SAT reading, writing and math, with a math focus on pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, calculus, and statistics.
Students can also get help in AP courses like statistics, calculus, chemistry, biology, physics, and computer science.
“We are excited to partner with the Indiana Department of Education to provide free tutoring to students across Indiana,” said Drew Bent, chief operating officer of Schoolhouse.world. “No matter where you are in the state, or what resources you may have, we want to help you receive the support that you need.”
In addition to Schoolhouse.world, Khan Academy and College Board offer free SAT practice resources.
