Waterloo Engineering is offering free tutoring to high school students across Ontario to help them succeed with remote learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The new program, known as Hive Mind, is aimed at Grade 10, 11 and 12 students who are struggling in advanced functions, calculus, chemistry and physics — all key subjects required to pursue post-secondary engineering programs.
Leanne Predote, senior manager of Waterloo’s engineering outreach department, said the program was launched earlier this year to help ensure students interested in pursuing post-secondary STEM education would not be disadvantaged by coronavirus restrictions.
“Many are struggling with digital divide issues and additional mental health stress and can’t learn as well in an online environment,” she said. “Hive Mind gives them the one-on-one support they need right now.”
