***Please note that while this opportunity is currently virtual, we are looking for volunteers who will be able to attend sessions once we are meeting in person again ***
At Northstar Tutoring, we’re fighting to make sure that every student has the chance at a better future. By matching low income students in the Washington, D.C. are with their own volunteer tutor/mentor we strive to provide the academic support and personal attention that they may not otherwise have in their lives.
Since March, 2020 we have transitioned our normal tutoring and mentoring program to be completely online. Despite this change we are continuing our one-on-one model to match tutors with their own student for the full year (and subsequent years if both return). We ask volunteers to work with their students for 60-90 minutes weekly to help them complete their homework and/or study for upcoming tests. During the summer we are providing individualized academic materials for pairs to work on during each session since most students do not have homework.
Online sessions are scheduled between the volunteer and parent and can take place weekday/weekend days or evenings. Please note that we take in new students throughout the summer and school year and are therefore always looking for new tutors to sign up!
Northstar Tutoring’s mission is to provide free tutoring and mentoring services to low-income children living in the Washington, D.C. area. By matching students with their own tutor/mentor we help these children overcome barriers to personal and academic success and serve as a beacon - or a north star - by which they can find a way to a better, brighter future.
Northstar Tutoring provides free, year round services for low-income students living in Washington, D.C. Northstar is a unique mix of tutoring and mentoring for low-income families in Washington, D.C.
