About us

Every child is different. Every child has special needs. As their tutors and mentors we help children improve themselves by:

Changing their attitude toward school

Children who do not perform well in school tend to dread homework and classroom participation. By giving them a caring and positive environment, we give them a reason to rediscover the satisfaction that comes from learning.

Serving as a positive role model

Encouragement by example; show children that it's "cool" to read well and that learning is a lifelong experience

Taking them away from past failures

By tutoring in a neutral environment and without the stigma of past failures hanging over them, children are more likely to take their first tentative steps toward self-improvement.

Giving them individualized attention

Maintain a community resource with high volunteer participation to that we can maintain our services at no cost to children. Try to maintain the lowest possible ration of tutors to children to ensure that every child feels important.

Because everybody deserves a chance to improve themselves

We provide a community service that is free to all students of all social and ethnic backgrounds and especially to those at or below the lowest academic and economic levels.
