For over five decades the Saturday Morning Tutoring Program has provided free peer tutoring to students in grades 5-8. The Saturday Morning Tutoring Program pairs Upper Division student volunteers from Horace Mann with Middle Division students from public and parochial schools in the Bronx and nearby neighborhoods. The goal of the program is to establish a strong and productive relationship between each tutor and tutee so they can work through the year (approximately 21 Saturday mornings) first to identify skills that need to be strengthened, and then to enrich the education of the tutees.
Because of Covid-19 health concerns, this academic year (2020–2021) the program will be taking place online from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM via Zoom. Tutees will sign-in with a Zoom code sent by Mr. Álvarez and the tutors will meet there virtually.
We hope that this program, even if it is not in person this year, will instill a love of learning for both the tutees and tutors and help everyone fulfill their potential as students, teachers, and educated citizens.
Zoom Meetings Online (2020-2021). Zoom link will be sent by email.
