Free homework help for PV Schools students through FROST

The FROST program -- Free Resources for Online Student Tutoring – connects National Honor Society students with their K-12 peers to provide free after-school online tutoring. Students can take advantage of the system on a home computer, on vacation, or anywhere there’s an Internet connection.  

The FROST system uses Webex technology for online screen sharing and optional two-way audio-video. After making the connection, peer tutors can tap into tools such as drawing, text, shapes and colors on a virtual whiteboard to help their students understand new concepts.

Live homework help is available between 4 and 8 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday.

By visiting pvschools.net/HomeworkHelp, students can learn how the system works and access the links to start a tutoring session. All sessions are monitored by certified PV Schools teachers.

Get started today!  Visit pvschools.net/HomeworkHelp.
