FSU Counts, a free math tutoring program offered by Fairmont State University is planning for its fall session to be held on the Fairmont campus. The free math tutoring program is offered to students grades four through eight who are experiencing math difficulties.
The program is supervised by Pam Kabulski and coordinated by Donna Yergovich Nuzum. The program is structured to emphasize math homework difficulties and assist with specific math difficulties.
The one hour / once a week sessions, which run for seven weeks, are offered Wednesdays at 5p.m. and 6 p.m. and Thursdays at 5 p.m. or 6 p.m. The program starts Oct. 5 and 6.
Fairmont State tutors, proficient in math, aid children in developing their math skills.
Kabulski, a Marion County math teacher and the on-site supervisor, will be present to assist each tutor and student.
"The students benefit greatly from the small group instruction and support they receive from their tutors," Kabulski said.
