School is in session, and Heart Math Tutoring is gearing up for another great program year! This year, Heart Tutors will serve over 1,000 Charlotte Mecklenburg elementary students through 1 to 1 math support and mentoring. With just an hour or 30 minutes a week, community volunteers will impact the lives of elementary students across the county, including students at Lebanon Road Elementary.
Since the report that ranked Charlotte 50th out of 50 cities in the US for economic mobility has been published, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Opportunity Task Force has found that early care and education are one of three focus areas that can help break the cycle of poverty. Everyone is working hard to support children, especially schools and teachers, but resources are limited, and everyone is at full capacity. This is especially true for high poverty schools.Heart Tutoring is working to contribute to the solution by providing a focused math intervention. Heart provides an easy to use and scripted curriculum, program coordinator who is present at every tutoring session, and school partnership that join forces to provide an effective, fun, and hands-on way for any community member to step in and tutor an elementary student – no math experience required! Heart Tutoring’s mission is to ensure that all elementary students develop the strong foundation in math and an enthusiasm for academics needed for long-term success.
We currently have about 200 students waiting to be partnered with a tutor! If you or someone you know would like to make an impact in a child’s life as a volunteer, you can sign up today! Volunteer orientation begins the week of September 30th and tutoring beings the week of October 7th.
