This year, The Learning Project, which has been successfully running at Naremburn School since 2016, has decided to expand its reach through an Online Tutoring Program.
This is in response to the growing need for online educational support during the restrictions posed by COVID-19. However, we intend to continue the program even after the restrictions are lifted, in an attempt to reach more disadvantaged and marginalised students who cannot access our in-person tutoring service at Naremburn school on Wednesday afternoons.
Online tutoring will run in a similar way to in-person tutoring, with supervision from youth workers (or equivalent). All tutors will have Working with Children Checks and have undergone a short training program where they are taught about online and child safety. The tutoring will mainly provide homework and assignment help rather than providing complete teaching of subjects.
Students must be in years 7-12 to receive tutoring. We employ a holistic definition of disadvantage (including but not limited to the definitions used by Educational Access Schemes) with student eligibility assessed on a case-by-case basis. While the restrictions of COVID-19 are in place, we will cater to all student applications, but will prioritise disadvantaged and marginalised applicants. Online tutoring will operate on ZOOM, unless the student has a particular reason to prefer a different platform.
