Tutoring Program

Tutoring in the library
  • Our tutoring program supplements classroom education. Tutors are able to work in-person and in comes cases, virtually.  Tutors provide students in Grades K-5 with opportunities to build literacy and math skills. Tutors offer assistance, support, and positive feedback on student progress. Children gain self-confidence, make relationships with caring adults, and practice key skills.

    Invest in a child’s tomorrow.

             Become a volunteer tutor today.


    Volunteer tutors enjoy spending time with children, have math skills (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division), and literacy skills (reading and writing). You do not need to have previous tutoring experience!


    • Arrive five minutes early to prepare for the day’s tutoring session
    • Spend one or more hours working one-on-one or in small groups with students (K-5) in need of academic support in reading or math
    • Maintain accurate records of each tutoring session
    • Embrace diverse children and collaborate with teachers
    • Be a coach and positive role model for Horace Mann students

    Training Provided:

    Orientation and tutor training (usually 1-2 hours total) will be provided before volunteer work begins. Additional training opportunities will be provided throughout the year.

    Time Commitment:

    Begins at one hour per week for a full school year, but is only limited by the tutor's schedule.
