Who We Are
TutorSmart in collaboration with other after school providers, schools, and community centers, is providing in person as well as virtual academic tutoring support for students across Greater Toledo.
Students across the city engage with teachers and volunteers throughout the week to get small group tutoring in the areas where they need it, help with homework on an ongoing basis, and to engage with activities and enrichment during after school hours.
TutorSmart is looking for volunteers to help staff the after school homework help stations (both in person and online) and engage with those students who need help with their assignments. A lot of our kids are feeling isolated and overwhelmed by their current circumstances and we are looking for compassionate leaders who are willing to listen and be a mentor to the students who are often times feeling a little lost and overwhelmed.
Provide mentoring relationships that help students grow and flourish knowing that someone is available after school who cares about them and their success.
Provide a safe space where students who are struggling academically can get the help they need to be successful in school.
Provide opportunities for connecting students and adults who are interested in serving with the kids who need them the most.
We ask our volunteers to commit to specific times each week that they are available. You can volunteer for one to two hour shifts anytime between 3:00-6:00 pm Mondays through Thursdays. Our kids need consistency and to know that people care about them and we need to be able to plan staffing appropriately throughout the week.
Right now, many of our opportunities are in person but there are limited virtual opportunities as well. Training will be provided and you will be assigned to a specific site and a Team Leader who will work with you to make the experience as valuable for you as it is our students.
There are many ways to help kids in our community. Its through the generosity of people just like you, that we are able to make a difference in the lives of so many students across the city.
