Math Tutors Needed

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: For Love of Children

At For Love of Children, volunteers are the nucleus of our after-school programs for students in 2nd-12th grade, and we are looking for you. Our volunteers serve as direct educational support and are instrumental in enhancing the self-esteem and confidence of our students while encouraging the independence and perseverance necessary to overcome any obstacle to succeed. With your help, our students can gain at least one-grade level equivalency in reading, math, or both.

Through our Neighborhood Tutoring Program (NTP), FLOC tutors students in grades 2nd-12th in the Washington, D.C. area to achieve grade-level competency in reading and math through one-on-one attention and a structured, step-by-step curriculum. 9th-12th grade students participating in our City Leaders Program (CLP) receive mentoring and coaching through our PSAT/SAT Prep tutoring, College & Career Readiness, and Project Based Learning programs to ensure they are prepared to transition out of high school no matter what path they choose.
