Local High School Students
Many local high schools require students to perform service hours and students are looking for fun and meaningful community service opportunities. Many students are studying upper level math and science subjects and would be a great resource to help your child with STEM homework. Contact your local high school to see if they can recommend a student who may be interested in helping your child.
Reach out to Local Colleges
College students studying to be teachers can be a great low-cost option for tutoring. Usually they charge less than certified teachers do as they are building their experience. Posting help-wanted ads in college newspapers or online is a great way to reach these students.
