One of the central focuses of ConnectiKids programming is the Tutoring Program. One day each week for 75 minutes, students meet individually with a tutor from one of nine sponsoring organizations. Tutors usually use a portion of this time to help his/her student complete his/her homework and/or complete the lesson plans we provide on a weekly basis. Each lesson plan is a packet of activities based off of Connecticut’s current academic standards.
Through a generous grant and donation from Barnes and Noble West Hartford CT, hundreds of books are available at each site to be used by students and their tutors as well. At the end of each tutoring year, each student gets a book to take home to add to their personal library.
Employees, students, and community members serve as tutors at our host sites. Bringing children to the sites for tutoring allows them to be exposed to career choices and utilizes neighborhood resources they would otherwise not have access to. Conducting tutoring on-site in work settings also gives hundreds of people the opportunity of volunteering who otherwise could not due to limited time.
