Centenary Office Offers Free Math Tutoring

Mathematics tutoring for children can be an expensive endeavor.  Many services can cost $50 to $75 per hour, which can be taxing to most families’ budgets.  Members of the local community and beyond are in luck, however, as Centenary University’s Downtown Office has hosted free mathematics tutoring for grades two to eight during the past four years and just started offering this service for the new academic year.
This service has been made possible by Kathy Turrisi, assistant professor of Mathematics at Centenary University.  Tutoring hours are on Mondays from 3:15 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. and 4:15 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. at the Centenary Downtown Office in Hackettstown. 
The tutors for this program include Centenary University students, volunteers from Trinity United Methodist Church and members of Delta Kappa Gamma Society International, an organization which promotes professional and personal growth of women educators and excellence in education.
“Our tutors really provide the children with innovative methods to engage them in the subject matter,” says Turrisi.  “The tutors often develop materials or games that students can utilize that are designed to make the learning process fun.”
Those who are interested must call Professor Turrisi at (908) 852-1400, ext. 2321 to make an appointment. Due to the limited availability of spots, walk-ins are not permitted.
