Northstar Tutoring is a one-on-one tutoring and mentoring program for low-income students in the Washington, D.C. area and we are excited to be opening our first program in Hyattsville, MD!

Hyattsville volunteers will be matched with his or her own student for the full school year, and subsequent school years if both the student and tutor return. During the 90 minute tutoring sessions, student-volunteer pairs will work together to complete the student’s homework and/or study for upcoming tests. Individualized academic materials will also be provided to each student as well in case they do not have enough homework for the full 90 minutes.

Mentoring is also a significant part of the Northstar program and volunteers will take their student out on a mentoring activity once a month. This could range from a trip to a museum or sports game or visiting a local park. These outings help to build on the volunteer/student relationship and have a significant impact on the productivity of tutoring sessions.

Thanks for your interest in Northstar and we hope you will consider changing the life of a Hyattsville student!
