What: Free tutoring sessions in a variety of subjects, such as algebra, spelling, and physics.
Who: Tutoring sessions are offered to local students in grades K-12.
The sessions are run by Bama Tutors for Service, a group of University of Alabama students.
When: Monday and Wednesday, 6-8:30 p.m.
Where: Tuscaloosa Public Library, located at at 1801 Jack Warner Pkwy NE.
Why: Bama Tutors for Service offer their services so that those who would not be able to pay for tutoring can get the academic help they need. They said they've found giving their time to tutor to be a great experience.
“I learned that there are no free tutoring services for students of all grades near Tuscaloosa," said Kara MacIntyre, co-president and founder of Bama Tutors for Service. "I also knew that there are many impoverished schools in the area, and that there are many UA students who love to volunteer and tutor.”
Students interested in becoming a tutor should contact Bama Tutors for Service at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
