In an unprecedented move and in response to the current economic climate, Tutoring Match, the faster, better way to learn, is offering all-day tutoring for free on Fridays for the rest of the school year! The free Friday tutoring is available for the next eight Fridays to any student (kindergarten through 12th grade) who wants or needs up to an hour’s worth of tutoring in any subject. . Select tutors from Tutoring Match’s network of professionals will be donating their time in this effort. Students will be able to meet with their matched tutor at public libraries throughout Fairfield County.

Tutoring Match has been helping students throughout Connecticut and Westchester County to succeed scholastically for the past ten years effectively matching students with the right tutors. The service has access to over 300 tutors who provide personal, customized teaching at competitive, affordable rates with day, evening and weekend hours available. Through their state-of-the-art website students of all ages and abilities are matched with experienced tutors in all subject areas.

According to Henry Lane, owner, founder and director of Tutoring Match, “Our students are our future. But, many families are experiencing really tough financial times this year. At Tutoring Match, we recognize that family finances should not be a factor for a child’s educational success. If a student needs academic assistance to succeed, we have decided to offer that help for free on Fridays through the end of the school year. Giving back to the community is an integral part of our organization’s philosophy. This is our way of giving back to the community that has allowed us to do what we love, help children grow and flourish academically, for the past decade. “

To receive free Friday tutoring, simply email a request to info@tutoringmatch.com or call (203) 366-3396. Be specific as to the academic subject and the age or grade of the student. Choose a library location and Tutoring Match will find the tutor. Parent and student requests will determine the location(s) of the libraries for the week and Tutoring Match will post on their website (blog) by Wednesdays (of that week) a list of tutors who have agreed to be present during part or all of the library hours. For more information, go to www.tutoringmatch.com .

It is possible that while Tutoring Match may have tutors stationed at all libraries each week, we may not have all subjects covered, so contacting Tutoring Match in advance is important. Appointments will be given on a first-come-first-serve basis. Walk-ins may receive some tutoring, but we cannot guarantee that a tutor will be available.
