Virtual Tutoring Program for Children of WVU Faculty and Staff

With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, West Virginia University recognizes many faculty and staff with school-age children continue to juggle and adjust to varying work and school routines.

To support faculty and staff who may need help keeping their school-age children challenged, learning and engaged this semester, the University is continuing to offer a free virtual tutoring program for children of WVU faculty and staff enrolled in K-12 schools.

The Office of the Provost, in partnership with WVU Honors Test Well Center and academic units and tutoring centers across campus, has been able to identify additional tutors for Spring 2021 and is able to provide services for additional school-aged children.

As part of the program, certified student tutors from the WVU Honors College and other tutor will provide up to three hours of tutoring per week in a variety of subject areas, including:

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • English
  • Math
  • Psychology
  • Spanish

Tutoring is currently being offered in scheduled groups of two school-age children with one tutor and via scheduled drop-in sessions. Tutoring services will continue until the end of the University semester.

Faculty and staff must apply online for the virtual tutoring program, and criteria for consideration will be similar to those used for the WVU Faculty Childcare Emergency Relief Fund.

Limited slots are available, but applications will be considered on a rolling basis.
