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.
