When last school year ended abruptly, we all were clueless about how comfortable we all should be with this new normal scenario… turns out, the coming school year is looking a lot more inclined towards homeschooling or online schooling.
To ease out the transitioning into new grade and getting most of the online learning and new challenges, some of the websites are offering noticeable games, online camps, online learning activities.
I lately stumble upon this website, Varsity Tutors and felt like mentioning, as it might be helpful for many parents.
According to Varsity Tutors, headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, founded in 2007 is the largest live learning platform in the United States. They have numerous free resources to help students and parents cope with school and summer camp closures.
