How do I get tutoring?

In addition to the tutoring and academic coaching provided in-person at weekly afterschool meetings, Upward Bound also employs remote tutors who are successful college or graduate school students to assist participants outside of regular school and weekly meeting times.  Remote tutors can help with completing homework assignments, understanding course content, editing essays, improving study skills, and preparing for exams.

Having tutors available 4 nights per week allows for better monitoring of academic progress, early intervention when a student first begins to struggle, and increased access to the expertise of Upward Bound staff by participants who may miss meetings because of conflicting extracurricular activities and sports.

  • Follow the Zoom link that is posted daily in the Google classroom to be connected to live tutors
