58 people are interested
This one-on-one tutoring program teaches students foundational reading and math skills. We help students in grades 2nd-12th achieve grade-level competency in reading and math. Students are guided through a structured curriculum at the pace that is appropriate for their individual learning, ensuring that while they build fundamental skills they also gain confidence in their ability to succeed. After 3.5 months of consistent instruction, students make an average improvement of one year in both language and math concepts!
Volunteers work one-on-one with the same student, each week during program. The Neighborhood Tutoring Program will be offering our Math Curriculum to students part of the Sitar Arts Center after school program. Tutors will meet once a week with students for 2 hours to strengthen their Math Fluency and Calculation skills.
This program will meet from 4-6 pm every Thursday.
About For Love of Children (FLOC)
1301 Pennsylvania Avenue SE, Washington, DC 20003, US
For Love of Children (FLOC) provides educational services beyond the classroom to help students succeed from first grade through college and career. We bring together students, volunteers, families, and community partners in proven programs that teach, empower, and transform.
Here in our nation’s capital, barely half of DCPS youth graduate from high school. That shocking statistic only leads to more sobering numbers. According to the DC Alliance for Youth Advocates, there are over 14,000 young people in the District neither enrolled in school nor employed, and less than 42% of 20-24 year olds in DC have fulltime employment.
Everyday, FLOC is changing that statistic by providing opportunities for students to succeed in school, aspire to earn a postsecondary degree, and become contributing members of their communities. Unlike many other youth-serving programs, we provide a continuum of support that guides our students from first grade through completion of a postsecondary degree. Through our Neighborhood Tutoring Program, we intervene early to make sure that students do not fall further behind in reading or math. Building on those academic skills, our Scholars Program exposes our students to experiences, information and activities that build persistence skills to help them progress through their educational journey and into a chosen career.
