Many students in elementary and middle school need the extra support and help succeeding in school.

The pandemic over the last two years has left many students struggling, experiencing learning loss.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Healthy Cities Tutoring helps kids succeed in school. Community volunteers provide one-on-one tutoring and mentoring for children to improve their academic performance, engagement in learning, and self-esteem. Every child has dreams and aspirations, and we believe caring tutor helps bring a student's potential to reality.

We presently tutor students in the San Carlos Elementary School District and the Redwood City Elementary School District.

The teachers in the two school districts we partner with refer these students to us and we match a tutor who will work with the student each week for an hour. Our tutors communicate with the the student's teacher so they understand in what areas the student needs help. We provide training to our tutors and support them with strategies that they can use to assist the student. Our tutors make it fun, build a relationship with the student, and work with them in the identified subjects where they are experiencing difficulty.

Healthy Cities Tutoring recruits volunteer tutors from the community, including high school students, retired teachers and any adults who are looking to work with elementary and middle school students. We perform background checks, healthcare clearances before matching any tutor to a student. We look at the interests of both the student and tutor, finding something that will help create a bond between the two.

A good number of our tutors work with the student for more than one school year.

Based on surveys we receive back from teachers, parents, tutors and students, between 92% and 95% tell us our program was successful in supporting students, enhancing their child's academic development, and their tutor helped them learn.

In the year ended June 30, 2021, we tutored 364 students in the 13 schools we serve utilizing 311 volunteer tutors. We provided over 9,000 volunteer hours to the students we tutor.
