Pre-Register for No-Cost Tutoring

Parents, we are excited to offer no-cost tutoring for your K-12 learners through ASSET’s Partnership to Advance Learning for Students (PALS) tutoring initiative. The program pairs K-12 learners with preservice educator tutors.

The PALS program helps preservice educators gain valuable field experience in an online tutoring environment, while providing learners with critical academic support. PALS aligns with Pennsylvania Department of Education guidelines for tutoring, and all sessions will be moderated and facilitated by ASSET and university staff.
