PVSchools Offers Free Online Tutoring for Students
Tuesday, September 24, 2019
PVSchools Free Resources Online Student Tutoring (FROST) is available to all students in the district who may need this valuable service.
FROST is a student-driven, online tutoring program that uses web-based tools to create a casual, easy to use learning environment for students who need extra assistance with their academic subjects.
“FROST has been called ‘the best-kept secret in PVSchools’ and it’s time to let everyone in on the secret! FROST is a fabulous, completely free online tutoring service. Students are able to post questions in the Google Classroom any time of day or night and they usually see a response fairly quickly. FROST epitomizes the four C's of 21st century skills as it is extremely collaborative, there is tons of communication and the tutors frequently foster critical thinking. Further, it is amazing to watch the creativity unfold as students connect and problem-solve together,” said Karen Mensing, integration specialist.
At PVSchools, our National Honor Society students will be available to provide online tutoring in any subject matter for any student Kindergarten through 12th grade.
“Beyond homework help and tutoring, FROST is an excellent example of positive Digital Citizenship. There are hundreds of students interacting in the FROST Classroom and they are helpful, kind and specific with their questions and responses. I love watching this model and am constantly impressed by PVSchools students,” added Mensing.
