Now that online schooling has continued due to COVID-19, tutoring is a difficulty for some. In the past, tutoring sessions were held for those in need, but now that we are on-line how do students get help? Well we might have an answer:, a website that students can use, free of charge, at any time.

“If I am a student and it’s eight o’clock at night and my parent or somebody in my home or friend is not accessible to me or doesn’t have the ability to help me out,” principal Thomas Lietz said, “having this available tutoring process that you get to use for free which is a great utility for me.” is an online tutoring site founded in 1998 that connects students to tutors in online schooling. has scheduled tutoring to students, from fourth grade through college and have more than forty different subjects that students can get help with assignments and studying.

“Prior to this service one of the things we tried to bring to Utica High was tutoring from being after school to make it during lunches,” Lietz said. “We knew there’s a lot of kids that couldn’t get transportation from place to place or they had athletics or other after school activities, which should not affect weather somebody gets tutoring.”
