Tutoring Beyond Borders inspires the next generation of students

Tutoring Beyond Borders

Providing free one-on-one tutoring services to students in Grades 7 through 12, Tutoring Beyond Borders (TBB) helps bridge the gap between high school and university students in our community. Launched in 2010 by a University of Waterloo undergraduate student, TBB acknowledges the financial burden of paying for private tutoring services, offering regional high-schoolers opportunities to seek extra help with their studies and connect directly with current university students who can offer insight on their undergraduate experiences.
