BURGAW, NC – Pender County Schools (PCS) is excited to announce its partnership with Tutor.com to offer no-cost online tutoring and homework assistance to students.

Pender County Schools has partnered with Tutor.com to provide online tutoring to select groups of students on the east side of the district.
