Website Healthy Cities Tutoring
Healthy Cities Tutoring helps kids who struggle to succeed in school. Community volunteers provide one-on-one tutoring and mentoring for children to improve their academic performance, engagement in learning and self-esteem.
No tutoring experience is necessary. Our tutors are people just like you: caring adults, teens, retirees, educators, and members of service clubs like Rotary and Kiwanis. We provide training and support. All you need is a little time and the desire to help a child succeed. Click here for the training and workshop calendar.
You have to be either in 8th grade or 14 years old to become a Healthy Cities tutor. The students are elementary and middle school students, ages 5-14 (Kindergarten through 8th grade).
Our program is designed with a student to tutor ratio of 1:1. We will match you with a student that you can work with on a weekly basis. You will be able to schedule your tutoring time to work with your schedule and the family’s schedule. It could be during their school day or after school and sometimes later in the afternoon or even weekends.
We ask for a commitment of six months. Tutoring typically takes place during the school year. Some of our tutors develop a bond with their student and stay with them for years. The commitment will vary, depending on the student’s needs and your availability.
Tutoring usually takes place at the student’s elementary or middle school (San Carlos School District and Redwood City School District) or at one of the public libraries.
Tutoring is done during the school year. Needs will present themselves throughout the year, so anytime is a good time to start helping a child!
