Free Online Tutoring for K-12 Students

Online Tutoring is Closed

Thank you for such a great year! This program has been a success for the past two academic years, and we want to thank you for your participation in Tutor Tracks and Online Homework Help. We’re very proud of the hard work our students showcased and the accomplishments they achieved. Online Tutoring was made possible thanks to funds through the American Rescue Plan. We are currently working to secure new funding opportunities to continue this program into the future, so keep an eye out for program updates on this page.

Tutor Tracks

With Tutor Tracks, students can dig deep on a specific subject to firm up their foundations in Reading, Grammar or Math. For each session, tutors bring guided lesson plans, so all students have to do is show up and be ready to learn. Sessions are held for 30 minutes, twice a week, over a seven-week period.

  • Available for students in grades 1-8
  • Three Tutor Tracks available: Reading, Grammar or Math
    • Reading track: morphology and spelling (grades 1-8)
    • Grammar track: parts of speech and writing (grades 3-8)
    • Math track: focus on fractions (grades 4-6)
  • Tutor-led instruction – all students have to do is show up
  • Recurring 30-minute sessions, twice per week, over a seven-week period

Online Homework Help

Our Dakota Dreams also offers on-demand tutoring for homework help on an as-needed basis. Sessions can be scheduled ahead of time or accessed on-demand as students need help or have questions on schoolwork. During these sessions, students are expected to bring assignments, homework or other questions for a tutor to assist them with.

  • Available for students in grades K-12
  • Four tutoring subjects: Math, English, Science or Social Studies
  • Students bring homework or questions for tutors to assist with
  • Scheduled or on-demand sessions
  • Tutors available during program hours

As you meet, here are a couple of pointers to get the most from your experience:

  • Use computer or laptop with reliable internet (mobile phones are not supported).
  • Find a quiet space.
  • For online homework help, bring something to work on together, like a worksheet or assignment
  • For the Tutor Tracks program, you don’t need to bring anything – your tutor will provide a lesson.
