Free Tutoring at the Columbia Public Library

Photograph of children being tutored at the libraryCould your child benefit from one-on-one support in reading or math? Free tutoring is available in these subject areas at the Columbia Public Library through our partnership with “A Way With Words and Numbers.”

This service is open to students in kindergarten through 7th grade. During a tutoring session, your child will work with an MU undergraduate student in the children’s area for approximately 30 minutes. Parents must remain in the building. You may sign up for a tutoring timeslot when you arrive at the library, though advance registration is also available online. Tutors will be available Monday through Thursday from 3:30-7:00 p.m.

Tutoring for the 2020 spring semester has been canceled as of March 14.

This service is available during most of MU’s fall and spring semesters (mid-September through early December and February through early May). To learn more, we invite you to stop by the Children’s Desk, or call the Columbia Public Library at (573) 443-3161.
