Free weekend math tutoring offered by TUSD
Whether they have a fractional understanding of algebra or are having trouble making heads or tails of probability, Tucson students who need help with their math studies can receive free tutoring on Saturdays throughout the school year.
Tucson Unified School District is offering weekend tutoring sessions to students in grades 3-12, beginning Sept. 8 and continuing on several weekends through May 11.
Tutoring will be provided by the National Society of Black Engineers and University of Arizona engineering students in a range of mathematics areas, from elementary math to calculus.
Tutoring will be available Saturday mornings at Roberts-Naylor K-8 School, 1701 S. Columbus Blvd.
Each session will have about 10 tutors, district spokeswoman Cara Rene said in a press release.
"Students may attend as many or as few sessions as needed. Drop-ins are welcome, but parents are encouraged to register their child in advance to assist in ensuring there is enough support at each session," Rene said.
Registration is available online, parents who do not register in advance will need to do so in person at the session, she said.
Students must bring homework or previous tests to work on, Rene said.
"Students who are doing well in class may also attend the sessions to do their math homework in an atmosphere of support and assistance," she said.
