Students & Families

A caring, committed volunteer can make a lasting difference in the life of a child, regardless of the child’s current level of academic ability. Working with a tutor not only sharpens academic skills, but also bolsters a student’s confidence.

Cluster accepts new students in grades K-8, with priority enrollment going to students in K-3. Students may remain in the program through grade 12. MORE >>


You don’t need special training to be a tutor – just patience, a desire to help, and 90 minutes one night a week during the school year. The atmosphere is relaxed and supportive, and tutors find they get as much out of the program as their students. MORE >>
