Take a closer look at our newest partner:
Key Club + Schoolhouse: Providing free math tutoring to the world
Key Club is excited to announce a partnership with Schoolhouse, a nonprofit that connects students around the world for free peer-to-peer tutoring over Zoom. Started by Sal Khan, the founder of Khan Academy, Schoolhouse offers both instant homework help and longer-term, small-group sessions in math and SAT prep.
Schoolhouse has already reached more than 7,000 students from over 100 countries, with help from over 1,000 volunteer tutors. We’re excited to work with Schoolhouse to provide free tutoring to even more students who need it, both in our local communities and around the world.
Whether or not you feel confident tutoring, you’re welcome to attend a session to get homework help or learn something new. Once you’ve tried it out, you can spread the word about this free resource to your Key Club and school. These flyers can help.
Become a volunteer tutor
We recommend tutoring at Schoolhouse as a way to reinforce your math knowledge, develop communication skills, build a portfolio that you can use on college applications and earn community service hours, all from the comfort of your own home. Here’s how to get started:
- Visit schoolhouse.world and create an account. Remember to select your club and district.
- Click the “Become a Tutor” tab and follow the checklist — you’ll certify your mastery in the math courses you’ve taken, complete our tutor training and get matched with an onboarding buddy who will help you host your first session.
- Once you’ve become a Schoolhouse tutor, you can host sessions based on whatever best fits your schedule. Schoolhouse is always looking for more tutors to host Live Help, where students drop in 5-7 p.m. PDT to ask any math questions they have. If you’re not a planner, you can even jump in at the last minute to host these sessions on any days you’re free.
- Encourage your friends to become tutors too. You can see how your club and district are doing on the Key Club leaderboard. Schoolhouse will recognize the districts and clubs that have the highest impact. Stay tuned!
These steps should be all you need to get started, but if you think it would be helpful to have an orientation session for you or your club, feel free to request one here. For more information, check out this page.
