Basic information about the program:
  • The tutors in the Peer Tutor Program are high school volunteers. We screen and interview all tutor applicants. While we do an orientation with tutors, please keep in mind that these are student volunteers and not professionally trained educators.
  • Tutoring starts in early October and lasts through the school year. Tutoring pairs meet for one hour per week.
  • There is a $45 fee for the program, due in the fall, which can be waived in the event of financial need.
  • Once in the program, tutees are automatically eligible for a second year of tutoring if desired and if they have not aged out of the program.
  • There is a two-year limit on tutoring in the program.
What to expect after submitting your application:
  • Acceptance to the program is based on a combination of need and a lottery system. Acceptance is NOT first-come, first-served.
  • You will be notified by July whether your child is accepted or waitlisted for the program.
