Each week during the school year, a group of 25 elementary school students comes to Hope CommUnity Center after school to practice reading skills, and participate in science and art enrichment activities. Students work with tutors one-on-one and in small groups for 1 hour and 15 minutes each day, two days a week.
Tutoring takes place in HCC’s Hawthorne/South campus. Each student is assigned to two days (2 hours) of tutoring: Mondays and Wednesdays. Space is limited according to the number of tutors. At this time, we have a waiting list.
All of HCC’s amazing tutors are volunteers. They come from all walks of life to offer support and encouragement for the kids and their families. The Academic Support Team meets with HCC’s tutors regularly to provide training and ongoing support and create a team environment. If you are interested in being a volunteer tutor, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Lynn Devanie at (407) 880-4673 ext. 222.
HCC’s approach to tutoring is holistic: we recognize that homework and school are only one part of kids’ lives. Engaging parents and family members in their children’s education is also key. We organize a parent meeting at least once a month to provide parents with a space where they can discuss questions and concerns about their children’s education, as well as share information and knowledge with each other. HCC’s goal is for parents to feel empowered to communicate schools and teachers and make informed decisions for their children.
If you are interested in enrolling your child in tutoring, you may fill out a registration form at the front desk of either one of Hope CommUnity Center’s locations, and you will be contacted by a staff member about space availability and a start date. For more information, contact:
