We are more than a tutorial service. We serve the families as if they were family. We aid not only the student with academic studies. We evaluate their performance to determine if there is a need to be observed for any learning challenges. We guide the family through the process of helping the student achieve. We provide information on resources that will aid the family in helping their child be successful.
Because of COVID 19 - all sessions are virtual and we now offer academic assistance during school and after school hours.

On weeknights and weekends, we assist students at risk of achieving their scholastic goals to achieve their destiny. We focus on students who reside in low-income communities, from a single parent moderate-income family, a recipient of a free lunch school program, or a single moderate-income two-parent home. We meet at several locations around the city.
Due to COVID 19, many families are experiencing struggles with the new learning platform. To aid these families, we have expanded our program to serve all families and provide academic support during and after school hours.
Our comprehensive programs enhance their learning through one-on-one tutoring by equipping them with the skills and knowledge needed to be successful in challenging subjects, study, and test-taking skills. We take time to understand the student and their best way of learning. For example:
use inventive ways of learning
develop a learning journey for their development
help the student take command of the subject
provide effective study and testing skills
Our volunteer staff includes certified teachers, education students, experienced tutors, and college students who have a love to teach and help others achieve. For in-school hours, we will have paid tutors requiring us to charge a minimal fee based on a family's financial status.
COST: (Free to those who are experiencing financial challenges)

We serve students who struggle academically during their school year and need academic assistance to obtain an acceptable score on the SAT exam. Struggling is identified as having a grade point average of less than 3.0 or having less than a "B" grade in Math or English subjects. Most of our students are non-traditional learners, which may include any of the following: struggle in class or on standardized tests or have diagnosed learning disabilities such as dyslexia or autism. We have on occasion, aided students to achieve a successful SAT score after they struggled to obtain a successful SAT score on their past SAT test(s).
Our course includes practice and timed tests, online practice, homework, and individual/group tutoring in Math, Vocabulary, Reading, and Writing. In addition, we provide aid in preparing their graduation plan, career goals, FASFA, scholarships, and more. Our tutors are wonderful volunteers who are retired teachers, exemplary students, successful in their profession, and individuals who want to share their knowledge and experience.
