FCPS Launches Virtual Tutoring Option

FCPS Launches Virtual Tutoring Option

Starting this week, all Frederick County Public Schools middle and high school students have 24/7 access to virtual tutoring services for help on any subject.

In September, the Board of Education of Frederick County voted unanimously to approve a contract between FCPS and TutorMe for virtual tutoring opportunities, which are now available for students in Grades 6-12.

“FCPS teachers remain the absolute best tutors for our students,” FCPS Superintendent Dr. Terry Alban said. “We believe this virtual tutoring option will be a valuable additional support when students are working on homework, preparing for exams and needing immediate assistance.”

TutorMe provides support for hundreds of subjects on demand and has thousands of verified tutors who are experts in their fields and go through background checks. Students can receive assistance through audio and video chats any time of day or night. Students can decide whether to receive support through messaging. Audio and video chats are also available.

Assistance is available on virtually any subject matter. For example, students can get an essay edited or a math question answered. Tutoring is also available for students preparing for Advanced Placement exams.

The FCPS TutorMe service launches this week, starting Monday, October 25. Students can access TutorMe using the Clever portal. Details for how to do so are posted online.
