Free Virtual Tutoring
We are excited to announce a new opportunity for students to receive extended support at home through free virtual tutoring provided by over 100 certified HPS teachers. Our Hartford Public Schools Tutoring Program offers academic support and homework help to all interested students and families.
What is Tutoring?
The goal of our virtual tutoring program is to increase academic achievement during these challenging times and support families with remote learning at home. The program will provide one-to-one or small-group assistance via Google Meet to students in a variety of subject areas. The tutoring sessions are by appointment and run 30 to 60 minutes long.
How can it benefit students?
Research tells us that tutoring is among the most effective interventions in education. It helps students who are behind catch up. Tutoring is most effective when teachers are the tutors, and more than 100 HPS teachers have signed up to provide this supplementary support to students.
Who can/should refer a student for tutoring?
Families and students can sign up for one-to-one or small group virtual tutoring sessions via the school links below.
Who are the tutors?
All of the tutors in our Tutoring Program are certified teachers in the Hartford Public Schools District. They include teachers who specialize in English Language Acquisition and Special Education.
What grades/students are being prioritized?
Our goal is to provide students in all grade levels opportunities to receive tutoring. This service will be an especially valuable resource for students who are struggling with their academic work. For more specialized instruction, tutoring sessions with certified Special Education or TESOL teachers are available.
We encourage families to take advantage of the HPS Virtual Tutoring Program. We are grateful to the over 100 certified Hartford Public Schools teachers participating in this new endeavor to further support our students while they learn remotely.
The HPS Virtual Tutoring Program sessions are held two days per week, between 4:00 PM and 8:00 PM, and on Saturdays, between 8:00 AM and 12:00 PM. The tutoring session days and times vary by school; please check the information for your school via the links below.
Together, we will prepare all our students for success in and beyond school. #ShoulderUp
