Tutoring Plus supports the academic, personal and social growth of youth in Cambridge with the help of volunteers and existing community organizations.
We serve a diverse group of students in grades 4- 12. Our students are primarily from the Port neighborhood in Cambridge between Central and Kendall Square. We have been making a positive impact on our students by matching them with volunteers based on school subject interest and proficiency, interests outside of school, and personality. Having a consistent, caring adult role model is extremely beneficial to the academic, social, and emotional development of our students.
Today, we operate five 1:1 tutoring centers for our Elementary, Middle, and High School programs. Additionally, Tutoring Plus offers six project-based enrichment programs for Elementary and Middle School students focused on science, engineering, coding, math, girls media literacy, and reading. 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.
