The Werklund School of Education is proud to enhance learning by coordinating free, online volunteer tutors for Alberta K-12 students in need of extra support. If your child would benefit from additional academic support - including reading sessions, subject-specific tutoring, or general study - we'll match you with a pre-service teacher in Werklund's Bachelor of Education (BEd) program who can support your child based on their subject area(s), grade level(s), and areas of expertise.
Tutors will provide individualized support, and draw on the Alberta Programs of Study as well as content knowledge and strategies in teaching and learning. This is a great way to support your student's academic success while also developing our pre-service teachers' skills as educators.
Applications for Fall tutors open in early/mid-September. Families who receive a match will begin working with their tutors in October.
Applications for Winter tutors open in mid-January . Families who receive a match will begin working with their tutors in February.
Spring tutoring runs from May to June. Due to a smaller number of tutors available during this time, we may not have a new round of applications open for this period.
Please note, each semester's applications are open for a limited time or until the applications exceed the numbers of tutors available for that semester.
