Whitman College and Walla Walla University fund tutors for Wa-Hi 9th and 12th graders
Walla Walla High School is partnering with Whitman College, Walla Walla University and the United Way of Walla Walla to provide additional tutoring services to students. College students are serving as tutors funded by their higher education institutions, and the United Way of Walla Walla is providing guidance and support for the program.
“We had a huge need for tutors for grade 9 because that class doesn't have the GEAR UP grant and now we have 30-40 hours of tutors available and student requests are flowing in,” said Katharine Curles, Wa-Hi/SEATech College and Career Center adviser. “It's a win-win because college students who needed jobs are now getting employment and paid through the colleges while our students are receiving the help they need.”
Curles said the program is now expanded to include middle school students. Families can sign up HERE
