A local nonprofit is seeking volunteers to be part of a tutoring program in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools this upcoming academic year.
Padgett Sullivan, the Program Manager of Heart Math Tutoring, stopped by WBTV News Satuday Morning to talk about the program.
Heart provides a research-based, structured curriculum that targets and closes identified gaps. The curriculum consists of hands-on activities and games, designed specifically for volunteer tutors. You do not need to be a math genius to be a Heart volunteer.
Heart volunteers commit to weekly tutoring sessions that last either 30 minutes or one hour and can team up with friends, family and colleagues to be "partner tutors." A Heart staff person is on site at all times to make sure tutors have what they need.
Heart is holding a Volunteer Drive for the 2016/17 school year. Its goal is to recruit volunteers between now and Sept. 16 to be tutors for 600 students in 12 schools in the CMS district.
