Our Dream Big Tutoring Program serves students in grades 1st-12th and focuses on homework assistance.
The Tutoring Program has two main objectives:
- To allow inner-city students to receive tutoring services that they would not normally be able to afford.
- To provide outstanding students with an opportunity to earn volunteers hours.
The Tutoring Program is an afterschool and weekend educational enrichment program for academically challenged at-risk students who live in our inner-city community. The program is designed to demonstrate that the trend of poor student achievement can be reversed and that all students can master academic standards if they are given time, support and instruction that focus on their academic needs.
Student tutors are the heart of the program. Tutors work with students individually or in small groups and offer tutoring as well as friendship, encouragement, and guidance. The Tutoring Program focuses the efforts of teachers on the diagnosed academic needs of students and harnesses the energies of tutors and learning assistance staff to reinforce the teachers’ efforts. The relationship that develops between tutors, teachers and students provides the kind of guidance, support and inspiration necessary for their future success. One caring person can make a difference in a young person’s life.
This tutoring program provides free tutoring sessions for students who need one-on-one help with their homework and assignments. Students registered for the weekend session will be tutored in our downtown Charlotte Office – 222 S Church St. Students registered for the weekday tutoring program will be tutored wherever appropriate at North West Cabarrus High School.
