Our tutoring program supplements classroom education. Tutors are able to work in-person and in comes cases, virtually. Tutors provide students in Grades K-5 with opportunities to build literacy and math skills. Tutors offer assistance, support, and positive feedback on student progress. Children gain self-confidence, make relationships with caring adults, and practice key skills.
Invest in a child’s tomorrow.

Volunteer tutors enjoy spending time with children, have math skills (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division), and literacy skills (reading and writing). You do not need to have previous tutoring experience!

- Spend one or more hours working one-on-one or in small groups with students (K-5) in need of academic support in reading or math
- Maintain accurate records of each tutoring session
- Embrace diverse children and collaborate with teachers
- Be a coach and positive role model for Horace Mann students
Orientation and tutor training (usually 1-2 hours total) will be provided before volunteer work begins. Additional training opportunities will be provided throughout the year.
Begins at one hour per week for a full school year, but is only limited by the tutor's schedule.
