From our new Executive Director
Healthy Cities tutors make a difference every day in the lives of children who are struggling in school. We read with them, we encourage them, we listen as they tell us about their friends and family, favorite sports team, math test, or the latest school yard news. Most importantly we care about them…. and they know, because every week we show up delighted to see them.
In today’s world that makes the biggest difference.
I am honored to lead the dedicated team at Healthy Cities Tutoring. Each day we enable students and volunteers to connect with one another, learn together, and feel valued. Our communities are strengthened with each match.
Teachers, tutors, and parents consistently rate our service and outcomes in student learning, engagement, and confidence as excellent or good. We are growing 10% annually and continue to add students to our wait list. Our ability to serve these students is largely based on the number of tutors we recruit each year.
As an alum of San Carlos schools, I am grateful to the teachers and mentors who made a difference in my life. Their belief in me at critical times made a lasting impression and helped me as a young girl grow into a confident, contributing, and successful woman.
You too can make a difference in a student’s life by encouraging your friends, neighbors, colleagues and others to visit our website and attend one of our three tutor orientation and training sessions this fall. I hope to see many of you at one of our sessions or at Devil’s Canyon next Friday, 9/28.
