The LigerBots Robotics Team of Newton North and Newton South students have started an online mentor/tutoring program this fall. We believe this is an especially useful resource for parents (especially because it’s free!). In order to offer more support to elementary students–as well as provide teaching opportunities to high schoolers–we’ve created an online program in which we pair high school mentors with elementary kids over an online platform (Zoom, Google Hangouts, Facetime, etc.) Mentors could tutor, give homework help, or just play games and do crafts with younger students. We believe that this is an amazing opportunity for high school students to gain teaching experiences and help younger students through these trying times. We wanted to see if we could work in any way together or if you could help us get the word out to parents!

We started this program in the spring when quarantine first started and found that it was a useful resource to parents and students in our community so we decided to continue it through the summer as a camp. We have so much success with so many students and hope you can help us spread the word!

This will be the AMP Spring 2021 session which will run from March 1st to May 31st.
