Y Online Tutoring/Homework Help Program
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Y After School Programs has created the Online Homework Help & Tutoring Program to offer NRV students the opportunity to receive homework/school work assistance during this difficult time.
The program will be staffed by volunteers from Virginia Tech who will be available to assist the youth in all curriculum areas. In addition to tutoring, this service will also act as a reinforcing tool for kids to practice their skill sets.
Encourage your kids to jump into a session and challenge a Tech student- bring along a tough educational problem and see who solves it first!
The program is open to the public. Students can log in to the zoom link below and receive assistance from our volunteer tutors. The program is meant to be a “use as you need” so anyone can stop by to receive help. The program takes place Monday-Friday from 4 pm-8 pm.

*At the bottom of the box there is an hyperlink to join zoom through the web client/web browser. Click on that hyperlink to bypass the download and use the desktop web version.
*That will open a webpage where you type in a screen name and click the “I’m not a robot” box.
