MORRIS COUNTY — incrAmath, a local, non-profit tutoring program, recently announced it would now offer online services. Started by a group of passionate and devoted Mountain Lakes High School students last spring, incrAmath is a program aimed to provide free private tutoring service to students in grades 6-12, targeting important areas of education such as SATs, ACTs, SAT subject tests, and some AP classes.

“Most students could benefit from additional academic support, but many times families simply cannot afford it,” explains Jason Ding, incrAmath co-founder, “all tutors and staff at incrAmath are passionate and devoted volunteers, and they are prepared to provide academic help on homework, test prep and study skills for free.” Tutees do have the option of donating up to $15 an hour to cover basic operating expenses, however. Originally based in downtown Denville, incrAmath is now offering online tutoring in order to continue to provide help while limiting the spread of COVID-19.

In emulation of many colleges and high schools, Jason believes that students would benefit from incrAmath going digital as well, explaining how incrAmath “will continue to offer in-person, 1-on-1 tutoring at our Denville location, but are providing this option for tutees who have concerns about the spread of coronavirus.” Beyond the health implications, Jason furthers that this is a good way to expand the service of incrAmath, making this helpful program available to even more students. “In the past, accessibility and distance were somewhat of a barrier for people asking for help … we hope that online tutoring could expand this service and remove a major obstacle to kids’ education.”

Sessions can be scheduled through their email incramath@gmail.com, with more information on their website, by clicking here.

It is the hope of the incrAmath team that “by reaching more areas and people through online tutoring, we can eliminate the impact money has on one’s education.”
