    Online Tutoring Options

    We are partnering with Paper for online tutoring services for students and families.

    Through online tutoring with Paper, students in grades 3-12 have access to:

    • 1:1 live chat tutoring sessions with experts
      • Support in 200 subjects
      • Available in English, Spanish, French and Mandarin
    • Expert review of written work (essays, creative writing, poetry, lab reports)
    • Hundreds of resources and activities for families to support students at home
    • Interactive shows and activities to expand learning beyond the classroom

    Students can access online tutoring seven days a week via the Clever dashboard on their iPad until 11 p.m. Best of all, there is no cost for students or families. This is one of many ways Omaha Public Schools is using federal Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funds for student achievement.
