Healthy Cities Tutoring – One-On-One Tutoring and Mentoring     

Healthy Cities Tutoring is a nonprofit organization that provides San Carlos School District elementary and middle school children tutoring and mentoring from community volunteers. Through one-on-one tutoring sessions, guided by the student’s classroom teacher, volunteer tutors help the children develop and improve academic skills, increase self-esteem and provide homework assistance.

Teachers and administrators refer students for assistance through Healthy Cities Tutoring, and each volunteer is carefully matched with a student to ensure there is a good fit for each child’s unique needs and situation.

Volunteers are recruited from all sectors of the community and include high school students, parents, teachers, members of the local business community and retirees. Volunteers receive an initial training and orientation provided by San Carlos School District teachers. Tutors are placed with a student at the San Carlos school of their choice and tutoring times are arranged to fit the volunteer’s schedule. Tutors are asked to volunteer one hour per week.

More volunteers are always needed to support students who are struggling to find success in school. In turn, volunteers gain the satisfaction of helping a child in need.
