Help us help our BINHI Scholars learn how to read, speak, and spell better English through our virtual tutoring program.
About the Project
The BINHI Buddy Project is a one-on-one personalized tutoring method of learning where BINHI Scholars will be coached by a volunteer to help them overcome reading challenges. The project responds to the needs of the scholar by focusing on the reading skill where there is a difficulty. It aims to prepare the scholar for independent learning.
The project will be implemented online using available free online platforms such as Google apps and Facebook.
