The first step in finding help for your student is communicating with your child's teachers. Teachers are available by phone, e-mail or through ParentSquare.
Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology offers free math and science help for students in 6-12 grades. Tutors are qualified students at Rose-Hulman Institute. Tutoring takes place via telephone, but tutors have access to FWCS textbooks. When students call, they should have a textbook, paper and pencil handy. Tutors are available Sunday through Thursday, from 7-10 pm. Call 877.ASK.ROSE (877.275.7673) toll-free.
Study Connection is a service of the FWCS Community Programs Department, combining the volunteer power of the community with public education to deliver a cost-effective and efficient tutoring program helping FWCS students. The Study Connection office recruits volunteers to work with FWCS students identified by teachers as needing one-to-one tutoring assistance. Students and tutors meet after school, one day each week for one hour during the school year. Call 260.467.8810 for more information.
Through its student program, Project READS matches trained volunteers with students in grades K-3 who are striving to reach grade-level reading goals. For one hour each week during the school year, tutors, who also serve as mentors and role models, work with students either one-to-one or in small groups to improve literacy skills. Academic progress is measured through year-end assessments and in the smiles of proud graduates. For more information, visit Project READS or call 260.423.6447.
