Tutoring & Homework Program
The Tutoring and Homework Program is an evening educational enrichment program for elementary, middle and high school students who live in our community, across Lehigh Valley and who attend Union Baptist. The program is designed to demonstrate that the trend of our student achievement can be reversed and that all students can master academic standards if they are given time, support and instruction that focuses on their academic needs.
The Tutoring and Homework Program helps to support several of the community's youth. Tutors are the heart of the program. Tutors work with students individually or in small groups and offer tutoring as well as friendship, encouragement, and guidance. The Tutoring and Homework Program focuses the efforts of teachers on the diagnosed academic needs of students and harnesses the energies of tutors and learning assistance staff to reinforce the teachers' efforts. The relationship that develops between tutors, teachers and students provides the kind of guidance, support and inspiration necessary for their future success. One caring person can make a difference in a young person's life.
This after school tutoring/homework program provides free tutoring sessions for students who need one-on-one help with their homework and assignments.
