Free, 24/7 Chat-Based Tutoring Service

January 25, 2023 - Cambridge, MA - Cambridge Public Schools (CPS), is rolling out Paper, a free, chat-based tutoring service that is available 24/7, for more than 3,000 students in fifth through 12th grade as part of a multipronged effort to provide students with additional support.

CPS Superintendent, Dr. Victoria Greer, expressed excitement and enthusiasm for the initiative.

“Paper’s support in Cambridge Public Schools is a strategic partnership that allows for our fifth through 12th grade students to have anytime, anywhere, chat-based, and subject-specific tutoring,” said Superintendent Greer. “We are excited for the collaboration and to add a tool that will support learning at any time.”

District leaders believe that Paper will give students a boost by providing academic support across more than 200 subject areas in four languages: English, Spanish, French, and Mandarin.

“The 24/7 year-round model offers flexibility and a leg up for our students who may not have access to high-quality tutoring in other ways,” said Assistant Superintendent of Student Services Dr. Barbara Mullen. “We know that our families are asking for additional support to help our students who are struggling. In addition to our implementation of other tools, Paper is offered in multiple languages and students will be able to access help for the majority of their subjects.”

Dr. Mullen believes Paper will help bolster teachers’ efforts, too.

“Paper also provides support for educators to see where students are taking the lead in their learning, how tutoring sessions are going, and how they can build on students’ learning in the classroom. We know that to be truly equitable as a district we need to provide flexible supports for our students.”

CPS’ drive to offer responsive tools for students throughout the community is a wide-ranging undertaking, and Paper is proud to be part of the solution. We look forward to the student growth that will occur as a result of this partnership.
