Varsity Tutors, an innovative Missouri-based company and the nation’s leading provider of one-on-one instruction, recently launched a free set of online classes for students in kindergarten through 12th grade. The free classes were a direct response to school closures due to COVID-19. Then, the company doubled down on its response to COVID-19 and announced it developed a virtual summer camp program. Now, the company has stepped up its game even more, adding four celebrities to its lineup of teachers.
Beginning May 12, kids will be able to learn from scientist and “Big Bang Theory” actress Mayim Bialik, “Dancing With the Stars” champion Julianne Hough, astronaut and former professional football player Leland Melvin, and Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman.
Bialik will lead a course in neuroscience, while Hough will teach about motion, creativity and animation. Melvin’s class will be about space exploration, and Raisman will lecture on balancing mind and body. The celebrities will join other Varsity subject-matter experts who provide 50 hours a week of free instruction in the Virtual School Day program.
