K-12 Online Tutors

Enhancing Student Learning

The Werklund School of Education is proud to enhance learning by coordinating online volunteer tutors for K-12 students in need of extra support this year. If your child would benefit from additional academic support - including reading sessions, subject-specific tutoring, or general study - we'll match you with a preservice teacher in Werklund's 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 child's academic success while also developing our preservice teachers' skills as educators.

Please Note: We’ve received a fantastic response from parents and students in the community who are looking for support this year! Based on the number of requests we have received, we are unfortunately no longer able to accept new requests at this time. If you have questions, please get in touch.
