Y.E.S. Tutoring Center

Tell me and I forget.  Teach me and I remember.  Involve me and I learn.

Friendly House is excited to announce our new Y.E.S. TUTOR PROGRAM offered for free to our program students and when space is available to the community as a whole, for a nominal fee of $5 per session, paid at the time of appointment.

MISSION

Friendly House has partnered with local teachers to offer free tutoring services to our Friendly House Kids enrolled in our Afterschool Program, and to the community as a whole, at a cost everyone can afford. The tutor will work with the child’s parents and your child’s teacher to come up with the best plan to help your child improve.  Tutors will follow school curriculum or will supplement the current curriculum to your child’s advantage.

TUTORING SESSIONS

Tutor sessions are set up by appointment Monday – Friday in 1 hour to 3 hour sessions.  Sessions can be set up in small groups to accommodate students with siblings or one on one sessions as necessary.  

  • Working with the family and school teachers to meet skill expectations
  • Assisting the child to understand and execute their school assignments
  • Developing effective study and homework skills
  • Emphasizing learning in Math, English, Sciences and Social Studies
