New programme to offer academic tutoring

A new programme will offer more students academic tutoring and mentoring this summer.

Longtail Learning was launched in March to help children and families who may not be able to use other tutoring services on the island.

A spokeswoman said: “Ideally, a student should have access to education support services, regardless of their academic abilities or family’s financial resources.

“However, due to the immense cost of providing such services in Bermuda, a significant amount of our youth is barred from receiving the benefits of educational tutoring and mentoring. Longtail Learning aims to fill this gap.”

The programme will help students in core school subjects, such as maths and English, in accordance with the Ministry of Education and iGCSE curriculums, through hour-long tutoring sessions.

All tutors are university students who are Scars certified.

The spokeswoman added: “We will also rely on the student and their parents or guardians to provide necessary contextual information regarding the child’s academic needs to tailor their experience.

“We are targeting the middle school and iGCSE grade levels, aiming to accommodate 20 students this summer, with ten students from each category.”

Applications are open for the programme, which will run from July 1 until August 18.
