Tutoring & Online Instruction

We want our students to grow and thrive academically as well as emotionally and socially. Thanks to the generosity of teachers, parents, sponsors and the PTSA, we’re able to provide onsite tutoring — free — to students to help them master course material and become confident, empowered learners. In addition to the no-cost services detailed below, here is an up-to-date list of outside tutoring resources and online courses recommended by Tech families and teachers. Please email Lisa Spielman at lisa.spielman@ousd.org with any additions or corrections.
