Hi there !
Welcome to Semi Online Study Circle
Semiahmoo Study Circle is a 100% grassroots, student-led campaign ran by students in Semiahmoo Secondary. We put emphasis on helping the most vulnerable students in the community by providing them with free virtual tutoring services. We believe that academic support is a basic need that should be accessible to all. We are currently looking for tutors in high school to join our team!

Q: How many hours will I get?
A: The volunteer hour would be dependent on the base hour you tutored the tutee plus the bonus based on the rating of the students.
Q: What is the signup process?
A: Click on the “ Apply Here”” button for becoming a tutor and then fill out a simple form for information gathering and then we will be hosting a personal interview with you later on.
Q: How much time would I be contributing each week?
A: It totally depends on how much time you have each week and the students' needs. Usually, tutoring classes are an hour long and they take place once or twice a week.
Q: How long would it take to be paired up with a tutee?
A: You would receive an email if a suitable tutee is available for you. We would try our best to notify you 2-3 days beforehand.
Q: Do I have to keep my camera on during the sessions?
A: We highly recommend all students and tutors to turn their cameras on to best ensure a professional experience, however, we leave the choice up to the individuals. If there’s a technical difficulty, we ask everyone to be understanding of others’ situations.
Q: What platforms do you use for interviews and tutoring?
A: We use zoom for all tutoring sessions and interviews. For interviews, we will send you a zoom code via email before your arranged time.
Q: How will I be notified?
A: We would email you with a zoom link, password, and tutor/tutee information after you are paired up for a lesson.
Q: Who are the tutors?
A: They are all high school students mostly in Vancouver who want to help students in need of academic support.
Q: What is the sign up process?
A: Click on the “ Apply Here”” button for becoming a tutee and then fill out a simple form for information gathering. You can specify if you want long term tutoring or individual classes in the form.
Q: How long it might take to be paired up with a tutor
A: You will receive an email 2-3 days before your lesson. If we don’t have a tutor available at the time you choose, we will inform you via email.
