Shack Tutoring

Shack Tutoring

Shack Tutoring is a program that provides a free tuition service to local high school & primary school students who cannot access a required paid tuition service. It runs on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays of each week throughout Semesters 1 and 2.


Volunteers will have a great development and leadership opportunity through Shack Tutoring; as well as the opportunity to pass on all that awesome smartness we hoard while at university.
