Hundreds line up for UPEI tutoring program

March 1, 2019

A math tutoring project out of the University of Prince Edward Island has received overwhelming demand from the community, reports CBC. The project, which involves interactive videos to help learners visualize numerical concepts, can accommodate 50 students between Grades 4 and 8. UPEI Professor Tess Miller, who created the project, said she has a waiting list between 150 and 300 people. “We know there is a need, and we're trying to find something we can hopefully get up in the next year,” she said. CBC adds that UPEI is exploring options to set up a numeracy literacy program for the public, but the school does not currently have funding to do so. CBC (PEI)
