Tutors

Even though tutoring is linked with mentoring, there are specific opportunities to provide just tutoring. Tutoring is offered in all academic subjects including Math, Science, English, History, and Foreign Languages and for all youth in HSTF. Tutoring sessions typically focus on the youth’s current school work. Tutors and youth are matched according to youth need, the volunteer’s interests, and schedule.
