Make a Difference in a Child’s Life!

Volunteer to be a Tutor

At Growing Together, Inc., a non profit organization, you will work one on one with a student in kindergarten through sixth grade who needs structured, individual attention to succeed and who can not afford to pay professional tutoring fees for the amount of help needed.  If you have a preference of working with younger or older children, you may choose what age range you prefer. You work with the same student each time and can feel an accomplishment by seeing how your involvement makes a difference in the child’s progress.  We tutor in reading, English/ writing, and math.

No experience is necessary.  We provide training, supervision, books that include teacher’s editions, and other educational materials.  We tutor year around and you are welcome to tutor for one semester, during the summer, or for as long as you can. Some of our volunteer tutors have been with us for years.

To become a tutor or get more information, call 202-374-5152 or e-mail theresaknudson@gmail.com.  See our home page for the tutoring locations and times. 

We are looking for committed tutors who want to work with children in a pleasant atmosphere.  Our goal is to get children up to grade level as quickly as possible and teach them learning skills and problem-solving techniques so that they will be able to continue as good students without further tutoring.
