Mission Statement

The Mission of Tutoring Plus of Cambridge is to support and encourage the academic, personal, and social growth of youth in Cambridge with the support of volunteers and community partners.

Description

For over 50 years, Tutoring Plus has been providing academic support to Cambridge students. In 1964, a group of Cambridge mothers seeking more academic support for their children tapped into a new source - MIT student tutors. Thus, they created one of the longest-running out-of-school time academic programs for Cambridge students. Its evolution from a community-driven effort to a professional organization could not have been achieved without the support of volunteers and community partnerships.

Today, we operate five one-on-one tutoring centers for students in grades 4-12. By providing a structured environment for volunteers and a highly personalized approach to working with students, Tutoring Plus currently supports over 210 students and 170 tutors and serves as a critical resource for our students and families.

All of our programs are provided free of charge to support our effort to close the opportunity gap within our neighborhood. Having a consistent, caring adult role model is extremely beneficial to the academic, social, and emotional development of our students. We believe that helping students build these capacities prepares them for short-term success and achievement, and lifelong independence and self-sufficiency.
