I recently learned about Seeds of Success – a volunteer organization that arranges free tutoring for K-12 students in the our community. The program is run through The Center for Service and Learning and the tutors are current BYU students who take time away from their studies to offer this service.
The student and tutor are paired based off of student needs and the skills of the tutor. The program directors act as liaisons between parents and volunteers to make sure students receive optimal tutoring from someone who is well versed in that particular subject.
Here’s how it works:
- BYU students volunteer to tutor local kids
- Parents contact the service center to set their child up with a tutor-student partnership for the school year
- These partnerships meet once a week for an hour on BYU campus
To begin the process, fill out this Parent Release Form and send it back to The Center for Service and Learning either by email, snail mail or in person. (Details are on the form.)
Also, please fill out this Student Needs Form so The Center for Service and Learning can assess how best to help your student. They cannot begin tutoring until both forms are filled out.
