New tutor training on October 18

Healthy Cities tutoring provided tutors for 431 students at 11 schools in San Carlos and Redwood City during the 2016-2017 school year. Additional tutors are needed again this year to meet the need.

Volunteers range in age from 14-94 and no prior tutoring experience is needed – just an interest in helping a child for 45 minutes once a week. Scheduling is flexible, before, during or after school.


  • Where: White Oaks School, Multi-use Room, 1901 White Oak Way, San Carlos
  • When: October 18
  • Time: Two identical sessions offered: 8:30-10:30 AM and 6:30-8:30 PM.

This year we collected data directly from the students enrolled in the program on their experience. Some of those comments included the following:

  •   “I like how you were the only kid and it made it a lot easier.”
  •   “She was very kind to me when I had problems with other kids.”
  •   “She encouraged me to keep going forward.”

 We need more tutors like YOU! Hope you can join us on October 18th
