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.
