STAR Tutoring

6085987405_ce568e1842_m-scaled500Have you always dreamed of being a star? Peabody’s STAR tutoring program will give you just the opportunity you’ve been waiting for!

Super Tutors Achieving Results (STARs) work with Peabody’s younger students who are struggling readers to put them on a path to success. We’re looking for Peabody parents and other community members who are willing to commit at least an hour every other week (though every week is great if you can do it!) through the end of April. This level of commitment will allow you to form a bond with the students you’re paired with and really make progress with them.

Tutoring times are available throughout the school day and until 5:00 p.m. for students in the aftercare program. Volunteers do not need any special teaching experience — you’ll mostly just be providing extra one-on-one reading practice with your student — but a brief training session will be provided to acclimate you to the tutoring experience.

To volunteer, please contact Donna Wilkes (wilkesdm@scsk12.org) or 901-416-4606.
