One-on-One At-Home Tutoring Program
We hire teachers from the school to travel to the students’ homes and tutor them at least 2 h ours a day, 4 days a week.
Students had just begun the 2020 school year when the Ugandan government closed all schools due to COVID-19. This was devastating news for all, but particularly for students who were in Primary 7 who were studying to take the Primary Leaving Exams, which they must pass in order to proceed to secondary school. In response, we launched an At-Home Tutoring Program for the P7 students. We hired teachers from the school to travel to the students’ homes and tutor them at least 2 h ours a day, 4 days a week. The government has now opened the schools for “candidate students” (Primary 7) so we have moved our at-home tutoring program to serve students in Primary 5 and 6! We plan to expand to lower grades and hopefully secondary students.
