Akron Public Schools is pleased to be able to offer our students and families resources for support throughout the school day through two APSplus services: 24/7 on-demand tutoring through TutorMe for APS students in grades 6-12 and Support Squad (coming back soon). Please read below for information on both.
Akron Public Schools has partnered with TutorMe to provide 24/7 on-demand live tutoring services. Students in grades 6-12 have the ability to access live support via text, mic, video or share their screen with their virtual on-demand tutor. Watch the videos below for more information on TutorMe.
These tutors are not APS staff, rather highly trained subject-area experts who can help students proof papers in the writing lab or assist with difficult secondary subject area questions ... everything from Spanish to Calculus!
Hours: TutorMe is a 24/7 live tutoring service for our grades 6-12 students in ANY subject.
Note: Students in grades Pre-K-5 do not have access to this service, and all sessions are transcripted.
APSplus After-Hours Support Squad provides families and students with help and resources after the school day has ended. The remote center is staffed with Akron Public Schools' high-quality educators, tutors and other professionals who will use Google Meet and phone calls to help students and families.
- K-12 Academics: Free tutoring and homework help for K-12 students to work with trained APS educators in the subjects of math, science, social studies and language arts
- Family Support Services: Counselors and staff are available to assist with connecting families to services (e.g., food, housing, parenting, mental health).
- Technology Troubleshooting and Google Classroom: After-hours support staff help and answer technology-specific questions/issues to ensure student success.
