Online Tutoring Initiative
Presently, all schools in Newfoundland and Labrador have access to the Tutoring
for Tuition Program in a face-to-face setting which provides free tutoring to
students needing academic supports. In addition to these supports, the Centre for
Distance Learning and Innovation (CDLI) offers a similar program in the online
environment. Both programs are sponsored and funded by the Department of
Human Resources, Labor and Employment. This online tutoring service will be
available to all students in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador and cover
most high school courses including English 1201, English 2201 and English 3201,
Science 1206, Physics 2204 and Physics 3204, Chemistry 2202 and Chemistry
3202, Biology 2201 and Biology 3201, French 2200, French 3200 and French 3201,
World Geography 3202, World History 3201, Math 1204, Math 2204, Math 3204,
Math 3103, Math 2205, Math 3205 and Math 3207. This service will supplement
the face to face tutoring that is currently available in all schools. Tutors will be
available during various evenings each week and on weekends to assist students
with academic difficulties. Students who have access to a computer and an
internet connection will be able to receive online tutoring assistance from their
homes or alternate venues. This online support is important as many students
often encounter problems understanding key concepts during evening hours.
