ORGANIZATION: Tutoring Plus of Cambridge

  • 6 people are interested

If you have just 1 hour a week, there is a student who would love your help and guidance!

Tutoring Plus is seeking tutors and mentors for Cambridge youth!
Each volunteer tutor is matched with a youth based on academic strengths and needs as well as personality and interests (for a minimum of one semester).

  • For one hour each week, volunteers meet with their students one-on-one for an engaging tutoring and mentoring session.
  • Volunteers can choose the day of the week that works best for them (Monday-Thursday), as well as choose the grade level that they want to work with. Session start time (5:00, 6:00 and 6:15) varies based on the volunteering site.
  • Volunteering sites are based in Cambridge, MA and are accessible by public transportation.
Volunteers will receive training and support on how to engage with our students and build relationships with them that will have a lasting impact.

TO APPLY, please complete our volunteer application at: www.tutoringplus.org/volunteer. Once your application is received, you will be sent an email to schedule a brief informational interview (done remotely) and to complete necessary paperwork.
