HOUSTON – There are still many families whose kids are learning from home during this pandemic.

A Houston program is providing one-on-one academic help to make sure students stay connected in a safe way.

The Education Building at The Forge for families Center takes pride in assisting parents through the pandemic. They navigate students through the virtual learning process and help with homework and assignments.

“We’ve been learning how to multiply by four,” Aaliyah Morales said.

Aaliyah is in the third grade and says virtual learning has been tough.

“You have to do assignments on a computer, instead of doing it on a paper,” she said.

It’s a similar story for third-grade student Asha Coleman.

“Well it’s hard to log on to some stuff,” Asha said.
