Healthy Cities Tutoring matches volunteers of all ages with students who are struggling to find success in school. Last year we provided tutors for 431 children at eleven K-8 schools in San Carlos and Redwood City. We are expanding to a 12th Redwood City school this fall and welcome your help to support a child in need of tutoring and mentoring. We never have enough tutors for every child on our waiting list.
Volunteers are asked to tutor just one hour per week, and the time can be arranged to fit your schedule. We place tutors in schools in San Carlos and Redwood City. You may choose the school that is convenient for you and the tutoring generally takes place at the school site. No prior tutoring experience is needed and the rewards are enormous!
Additionally, we are offering a tutor training and orientation for all new volunteers on Wednesday, October 18, at White Oaks School, 1901 White Oak Way, San Carlos. There are two identical sessions, 8:30-10:30am OR 6:30-8:30pm. Please attend whichever one is most convenient for you.
Becoming a volunteer tutor will make a difference in a child’s life and in your life as well. As one of our tutors said "This has been such a great experience - I don't really have just one word to describe it. That one hour a week is the most important hour of the week for me." We could not agree more and we hope you will consider joining us!
