  • Help change a child’s academic trajectory.

  • Feel pride as your student makes the honor roll for the first time.

  • See an improvement in your student’s self-confidence.

  • Assist a student in successfully completing homework or practicing a needed skill.

  • Work in a caring environment.

  • Observe a tutor and student giving each other a warm and friendly greeting.

  • Observe parents and students eagerly showing the student’s report card to the tutor or other available adults because the grades improved.
