In April 2020, we launched our Virtual Tutoring Program in partnership with Learntobe.org.
Each student is assigned their own tutor. The Tutors are volunteers who may be high school students, college students as well as current and retired professionals.
Tutors meet with their student once a week for an hour. They work on fundamental reading and math skills. Tutors also help with homework, note taking and study skills.
We have had over 500 students enrolled in our program in the past two years. 2867 hours of tutoring were recorded in the past 12 months (Mar 2021 through Mar 2022). Not all tutors record their hours, so the numbers are probably higher by at least 30%. That correlates to over 300 tutor hours per month.
Here are some other statistics!
