Three Takeaways from the Schoolhouse.World Connected Ink Session:

1. Schoolhouse.World has a variety of tutoring options

Once someone has registered for, they can select from three options. First, they can log in for one-on-one help from math tutors every weekday from 4:00-7:00 PST.

As a learner, it can be less intimidating to learn from someone closer in age to you.
