It’s easy to make a big difference in a child’s life. To be a Tutor you just have to spend about 1 ½ - 2 hours a week helping a student with their homework and academic skills ( be 16 or older and have at least a 3.0 GPA if you are a high school student). You’ll most likely meet at school or a library, at a time that is convenient for both of you. This is a rewarding way to help a child who needs support and encouragement. So, whether you’re a high school student, college student, working adult, or senior, being a tutor is an ideal way to help a child achieve their dreams.
