Thank you for taking an interest in SHINE! We are a non-profit organization offering free, one-on-one math and science tutoring in Halifax and Dartmouth. Our tutors are all volunteers (mostly local university students) with strong academic backgrounds in math and science. We only offer math and science tutoring in English (but will take other languages into consideration when matching students with tutors).
Halifax tutoring sessions take place at the North End Memorial Library, each Tuesday from 4:00-8:00 p.m. Dartmouth sessions take place at the Dartmouth North Public Library, on Wednesdays from 6:00-8:00 p.m. The first tutoring sessions for the 2019-2020 academic year will be held on Tuesday, January 14 (Halifax) and Wednesday, January 15 (Dartmouth). If your application has been accepted, you will be contacted with further information.
We aim to accommodate as many students as possible. Priority will be given to returning SHINE students, and then students will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis, dependent on the availability of tutors and space.
*The wait-list for Block B (January - March 2020) is full. Applications submitted after Jan. 10th will be added to the wait-list for Block C (April - June 2020).
