COPPERAS COVE, TX — Governor Abbott has extended school closures until May 4.

However, students still have work to do.

One Copperas Cove student is stepping up to the plate to make sure his classmates do not get left behind.

Although classrooms are empty across the nation, the learning must go on.

"It was definitely something I had to get used to in the beginning," said Copperas Cove High School senior Christian Salinas."Just because, you know, I'm used to interacting with teachers face to face."

Now, Salinas is lending his fellow students a helping hand by offering free virtual math tutoring.

"It really started with my sister and her friend," explained Salinas. "So they needed help. They FaceTimed me while I was out of town. I was able to help them."

12-year-old Alayna Martinez said she is thankful for the tutoring.

"Because if I didn't understand it, he would explain it to me in a different way," said Alayna.

Salinas said it's all about giving back to his community.

"There's kids out there that need help with this stuff you know. High school students, junior high students, elementary students," said Salinas.
