Free Tutoring from St. Xavier High School Students
Two generous St. Xavier High School students unassociated with Hyde Park School are offering free tutoring services this Summer to elementary students who might have fallen behind in math this year due to the pandemic. These rising Juniors at St. X live in Hyde Park, have experience tutoring students, and have been given permission by the Hyde Park branch of the Cincinnati/Hamilton County Public Library on Erie Ave to use library space to conduct tutoring sessions. No one from Hyde Park School has interviewed these students, but they can be contacted directly by interested parties as follows:
Aaron Peters
