Free Tutoring Services Offered By The University Of Indiana East

Learning and education are important parts of life and there is no doubt that people accept and understand the value of these two things that is why they not only go to school to study but also hire professional tutors like those from the Bee Academic Tutoring to further their learning experience. Unfortunately, not everyone can afford to hire professional tutors.

Education has remained valuable to this day. Unfortunately, schools are not as effective as they were before. This is probably because of varying factors such as poverty, overpopulation and the stagnation of the education system. Overcrowding is probably the biggest problem experienced in schools today. Since there are a lot of students sharing a single teacher in a packed classroom, you could expect that not all these students are learning like the others. That is why many parents had opted to hire tutors for their children.

But for those who cannot afford such services; don’t lose hope. There are many other charitable programs that offer the same services for free.

In the Indiana University East, a service learning program is offering tutorial services that are free of charge for students in kindergarten until 12th grade. Slots are limited but the students will be effectively taught all the necessary things they need to learn.

For one hour a week, tutors will be meeting up with students to help them study. Afterwards, they would think of practice activities that can be done at home. The slots have filled up fast but people can still apply for the waiting lists.
Right now, there are about 13 tutors and 25 students with the sessions taking place at the campus library.

Katelyn Brown, who majors in Biochemistry and also has a minor in Spanish, has been coordinating this program as part of her honors thesis at the university. She has done a lot of service learning activities and she also admitted that the service learning she does has made her more confident as a Spanish speaker. She is using this talent to help out other Spanish speaking students as well and she has worked with a number of students from many different schools.

City To Be Adorned In Pink Ribbons For Breast Cancer Race

People have been using ribbons for many centuries now. Their origin can be traced back to when people first began to weave cloth. In France, they used ribbons before to express their emotions and as the years passed, the number of uses for ribbons continued to grow. Now, ribbons are primarily used for decorative purposes but they can also be used for symbolic purposes. Ribbons can be used to unite people to a single cause or remember or honor a certain person or event.

Ribbons will once again be used for a higher purpose in New Britain, Connecticut. Now that the Connecticut Breast Health Initiative’s annual Race in the Park is only a few days away, the entirety of the downtown area as well as the Walnut Hill Park will become a garden of pink as it will be filled with a thousand pink ribbons, pink being the color of breast cancer awareness.

On Monday, Sharon Lapila, the coordinator for the Race in the Park, will turn Walnut Hill Park pink. Sharon Lapila, who is also the New Britain High School switchboard operator, along with 25 students, will all be going to the park’s band shell. They will give 4 hours of their time tying about 500 or 600 bows to the gazebo, the tennis court area and a number of trees.

They will place bows everywhere.

Last Friday evening, Lapila had already tied about a hundred bows in the Franklin Square Park all on her own.

She will start at the New Britain Stadium then she will head to the Police Headquarters, the Board of Education, and then the back of the city hall to tie 300 more bows all in the name of the pink initiative.

It will be Lapila’s sixth year as coordinator of the pink ribbon drive and in the past 5 years, every single drive was successful.

Lapila said that all the work they are putting in the drive is worth it due to the response they receive from the breast cancer survivors. She says that it feels great to make other people happy.

Some Homebuilders Including Lennar Looks To Home Rentals In The Midst Of Poor Sales

Nevada, USA — March 19, 2015 — Although many parts of the world, including the US have been experiencing an increase in demand for the homebuilding industry, the same could not be said for the second largest US homebuilder, Lennar, along with a couple other homebuilders.

Now, when their sales pace have been dragging and not many people were purchasing from their display homes for sale unlike before, they are now turning to rentals to speed up their profits.

Sparks, Nevada had now become the home of Lennar’s first ever single-family rental homes community. They have built a pipeline of 20,000 apartments that have exceeded $5.5 billion.

Stuart Miller, Lennar’s Chief Executive Officer, said that they have seen and are still seeing the great improvements and potential of the rental markets with vacancies being low and the rental rates getting higher. He says that it is because of the fact that American families are unable to access the mortgage market making them to consider renting single-family homes because of their inability to purchase a home.

In fact, in 20 years, the U.S. Homeownership rate fell down to its lowest ever by the end of last year, 2014. During this same time, the share for the rental housing vacancy rate dropped to its lowest since 1993. This is all according to the Census Bureau. Because of the fact that millions of homeowners are now losing more properties and potential buyers are unable to afford to buy real estate, the demand has indefinitely shifted to rental housing. Another factor for this is that people are having more trouble to qualify for loans.

Lennar’s decision to offer rental housing is now considered a wise move for the company since more people are now being compelled to stray from the norm and turn to rentals.

Lennar wasn’t the only one who entered the rental housing sphere. The largest builder of luxury homes, Toll Brothers Inc., has now also begun to offer apartment rentals as well as student housing.

Lennar reported that their expected income would be about $115 million and that they are also expecting an increase of value.
