  • PAPER Tutoring Available for TK-12th Grades

    BUSD has continued its partnership with Paper Tutoring (PAPER) for this year in order to provide virtual tutoring for students in Transitional Kindergarten through twelfth grades. PAPER is a secure, online tutoring service that provides students with unlimited, 24/7 academic support. Whether a student needs assistance with homework, is studying for a test, or needs someone to read and make suggestions to their essays, there will always be experts available online to assist them in over 200 subjects and more than 4 languages. PAPER tutors have been trained to conduct expert, academic support in a secure, chat-based platform. Students can also use voice notes to communicate with the tutor by clicking the microphone icon in the chat bar. Using this feature, they can explain their questions and problems verbally. They can also listen back at a playback speed of their choice. All tutoring sessions are transcribed and can be viewed in the student's PAPER account. PAPER tutors are committed to helping students learn, so they do not just give students answers, but rather interact with them in an encouraging tone to lead them to finding the answer themselves. This is a free service, so our students are encouraged to use it as much as they need, whenever they need. To access the service, students can login to their Clever accounts and click on the PAPER icon.
