Educators and Students


In partnership with the St. Albert Public Library, DISCOVER provides free, online homework help, tutoring, and academic guidance to students in Grades 4 to 12 by connecting them to university student volunteers.

Along with free tutoring, DISCOVER offers post-secondary help and general mentorship from current university students.

How to Register: Visit mydiscoverprep.com. Under Book A Session, select your tutoring subject. Select Book Now and choose the timeslot and tutor that works best for you! Sessions run Monday to Friday 4-8 pm, MST. You will receive a confirmation email, including the link for the online session after completing the booking form.

Reading Buddies

Children in grades 2-4 who could benefit from a little support and guidance with their reading will be paired with a trained teen Reading Buddy volunteer to read together. The goal is to help the young buddy improve their confidence and develop a positive attitude toward reading. 

Our Spring 2024 session of Reading Buddies is full. Please check back for future program dates.
