VIPS Tutoring Center
Who: We offer FREE tutoring for SCASD students in grades K-12 provided by local volunteers. The majority of our volunteers are Penn State students from the College of Education, Schreyer Honors College, and various PSU-affiliated clubs and organizations (such as the Engineering Graduate Student Council, Penn State Math Club, IMAC, and various Greek organizations)
What: We offer tutoring services in all levels of mathematics, social studies, science, english, world language (German, Spanish, Latin, French, and Chinese), English as a Second Language, and various electives
Where: Typically the Tutoring Center takes place in the State High Cafeteria. However, for the 2021-22 school year, tutoring sessions occured virtually, via Google Meet. A decision will be made just prior to the start of next school year about whether the 2022-23 tutoring center will be in-person or virtual.
When: The tutoring center is open on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4:00-6:00 p.m. We schedule one hour sessions during these times.
Please note: The V.I.P.S Tutoring Center is not a drop-in service. We are looking for tutors and students to commit to one hour weekly sessions.
What is V.I.P.S and what else does it do?
V.I.P.S is “Volunteers in Public Schools” and has been a part of the State College Area School District since 1999. In addition to running the after school tutoring center, V.I.P.S also places volunteers in other areas such as the classroom and after school enrichment programs like CEEL.
