Healthy Cities Tutoring

Student and tutor

Healthy Cities Tutoring matches volunteers of all ages with students who are struggling to find success in school. Last year, we provided tutors for over 450 children at twelve K-8 schools in San Carlos and Redwood City. We continue to grow each school year 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!

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!
