Students Create Free Online Tutoring Services Amid Pandemic

(TNS) — Alex Yan and Arvin Ding, seniors at Irvine’s Portola High School in California, have held free weekly in-person tutoring sessions for elementary and middle school students since they started their organization Math at the Library in 2017.

“ ‘I’ before ‘E’ except after ‘C,’ ” Gavin says.

“Very good,” Bernstein says. “So what are we going to change in shriek?”

“We’re going to swap the ‘I’ and ‘E,’ ” Gavin concludes.
