Free Tutoring Services
There are many reasons parents choose tutoring for their children. Some parents feel unable to help their children with schoolwork. Others may find their children are more receptive to working through school struggles with another person. Tutoring can help strengthen subject comprehension, boost confidence, and build important learning skills. Tutoring gives students individualized attention that they don’t get in a crowded classroom. This helps children who struggle to keep up, as well as those who aren’t challenged enough. It also keeps students on track during breaks from school, such as during Spring Break, or during the summer.
Tutoring has many great benefits, but some may not be able to afford it. Through fundraisers, donations, and grants our organization provides free one on one tutoring that fits the needs of your child. We also evaluate their progress periodically to make sure they are progressing. We choose only the best educators for our students. Also safety is of the utmost importance, therefore all of our tutors background has been screened.
