To better support students with distance learning, the district has launched a new partnership with Tutor.com to provide free online tutoring. Through Tutor.com, students can access homework and tutoring support in more than 120 subjects at the very moment they need it, even if it’s late at night or on the weekend. This exciting student support tool launched district-wide the week of Oct. 12, following piloting of the program at 14 schools.

“Tutor.com is another tool to help our students during this time of virtual learning, providing an additional layer of support while teachers and other school staff cannot be physically in the same place with our students,” said Superintendent Bob Nelson.

From Tutor.com: “The Princeton Review and Tutor.com are truly pleased to be partnering with Fresno Unified School District on this exciting initiative,” said Eduardo Ceja, an area vice president for College Readiness Programs at The Princeton Review/Tutor.com. “We salute the district leaders for their commitment to providing a robust range of educational resources to area students during these challenging times.”
