Individual Tutoring

Tutors are matched with students based on student age and area of need.

Volunteers with skills in upper level math, for example, are matched accordingly. For any match, the only requirement is interest in helping a child learn. Sessions are typically one hour twice a week. A background in education or

experience working with youth is a plus,

but not required.
