Homework Clubs are weekly meetings all about providing students with a place to get homework help and connect with a community. With a strong focus on BC’s school STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) curricula, each homework club will feature a lesson, short associated activity that will last for 1.25hours. Those with homework are encouraged to remain for the last 15 minutes to get support on homework that they have been assigned by their regular teacher. Join us for this 8 week long program to build community and get some homework support!

Please note that this program uses a sliding scale pay-what-you-can model. We recognize that this can be a challenging time for families and want to make our programs as accessible as possible while also being able to pay the wonderful undergraduate instructor team. Please select the tuition option that best fits your current financial situation. Our recommended price is $30.
Should you want to participate but find that cost is a barrier please email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about our bursary program!
We want to be as flexible as possible while keeping costs down. When a customer cancels, we lose $10 in non-refundable credit card and registration fees. That's why we are implementing a $10 cancellation fee policy across all of our clubs. We never charge a fee for transferring between programs or transferring off the waitlist. We hope this makes it as easy as possible to change your plans.
Up to 1 business day prior to the start date of the program – $10 cancellation fee to cover our non-refundable expenses.
After 1 business day prior to the start date of the program – No refund possible as we've already committed staff resources.
*If Geering Up needs to cancel Homework Club sessions at any point, all registered participants in that group will be given a full refund.
How will I know where to go on the first day?
A link will be sent to all registrants on the Friday prior to the first scheduled session.
Do I need any special equipment to participate?
A web-enabled device is what you'll need to attend the session. A webcam is a nice addition, but not needed. If you require a laptop to participate, you can apply for our laptop loan program by emailing us at email@example.com.
What do I need to do to set up for the first day?
On the first day we'll ask guardians to join us for the first ten minutes as we make sure every participant is well set up. We will also send basic connection information on the Friday before the sessions begin.
Who supervises the program?
Our programs are all lead by a pair of undergraduate students in science/engineering. All programs are recorded for safety purposes. However, it is still the responsibility of a guardian to provide supervision for their youth during the program. For example, guardians must be available if their child needs tech support or first aid.
