Princeton Online Tutoring Network helps bridge educational gaps for K-12 students

Since the launch of the Princeton Online Tutoring Network (POTN) in April, volunteer tutors from the University community have led more than 600 virtual tutoring sessions with K-12 students from underrepresented groups. Connecting with youth participants through partner organizations that offer academic help and enrichment, tutors have focused on subjects such as math, science and reading, as well as study skills and college preparation.The tutoring network is the brainchild of computer science professor Jaswinder Pal (JP) Singh, who hatched the idea together with his teenage son and daughter.
