EDISON, NJ -- The global pandemic and the need to work remotely has not stopped The Wardlaw+Hartridge School in Edison’s partnership with Interfaith RISE of Highland Park and the W+H student-to-family tutoring program.
On Tuesday, Sept. 8, Nicole Nolan of Bridgewater, W+H Director of Global Scholars and Community Outreach, along with Maya Wahrman, R&P Case Manager and School Impact Coordinator for Interfaith RISE, met with new and returning tutors to help set up families with support for the new school year.
Thus far, W+H Has 12 tutors ready to work with eight families. In this time of distance learning, the families need the support more than ever, but the W+H students, who will tutor virtually, are eager to get started and up for the challenge.
This year’s W+H students who are tutoring students from refugee families are Nicole Sandrik-Arzadi of Sewaren, Shiv Tickoo and Andrew Wolff of Scotch Plains, Natalie Chavez of Plainfield, Giselle Lee of Edison, Anna Lee of Warren, Sydney Racine of Piscataway, Zoe Rose of Watchung, Loveleen Sindhar of Carteret, Nandini Shah and Nadia Valcourt of South Plainfield and Nosagie Obadiaru of South River.
