Students at the Alamance-Burlington Early/Middle College on the campus of Alamance Community College (ACC) are offering their math help to the world.  A group of math students is offering their tutoring services via YouTube videos that they create after receiving a request for homework help from another student. Currently, 10 different students, some bi-lingual, are in the volunteer program and are turning around responses within a 24-hour window from receiving a math problem request via email.

The program was launched less than 2 weeks ago, and already, the student tutors have received a request from a student in Australia. The ABEC math students can offer tutoring for elementary, middle, high, algebra, geometry and trigonometry math problems.  They are posting the videos online so that other students having the same problem can view them for assistance.

Kevin Scharen, former ABSS Teacher of the Year and Piedmont Triad Region Teacher of the Year, is the teacher assisting his students with their volunteer project.

Students needing homework help can email their problem to: ABSSMathHelp@gmail.com
