Free K-12 Tutoring
Free virtual tutoring services are available to K-12 students throughout the state of Michigan. Tutors are comprised of volunteer GVSU community members and include faculty, staff, students, alumni, retirees, etc. Volunteers have indicated grade bands and subjects they are comfortable working with and must pass a GVSU background check prior to working with students. To ensure continuity of services, there will also be a handful of students who are hired to work consistent tutoring hours and service those most in need.
