STATEHOUSE (Oct. 20, 2021) – Students in grades 8-12 can now access free tutoring programs through a new state partnership with schoolhouse.world, according to State Rep. Bob Behning (R-Indianapolis).
The online resource provides help with SAT preparation, math courses and Advanced Placement classes. According to Behning, schoolhouse.world was launched by the same person who founded Khan Academy, a non-profit organization working to provide free education opportunities around the world, in response to learning disruptions caused by COVID-19. Tutors are vetted, trained and monitored. Behning said as students temporarily learned from home or had extended absences, they lost critical learning.
“The last two school years presented many challenges for students and educators,” said Behning, chair of the House Education Committee. “The steps taken helped keep everyone safe and healthy, but kids lost out on valuable classroom time. This free online resource can get students back on track and help them excel in their classes.”
Students can connect with live, small-group tutoring through Zoom at no cost, with sessions focused on SAT reading, writing and math, including pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, calculus and statistics. According to Behning, support is also available for AP courses, including AP Calculus, AP Statistics, AP Chemistry, AP Biology, AP Physics and AP Computer Science.

Behning said juniors and seniors can also access free SAT practice resources through Khan Academy and the College Board. These programs provide thousands of sample questions, instant feedback, video lessons and full-length practice tests. To get started, visit khanacademy.org or collegeboard.org.
