How It Works
Once registration opens (mid-October), parents can register their child in 3rd-6th grades for virtual tutoring sessions on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis, free of charge. Students will be matched with Carondelet Youth Tutors who will help assist them in guidance on homework assignments or subject areas where they need the most help. Each weekly session is 60 minutes and will take place virtually in an encrypted secure room.
Tutoring Subject Areas
Carondelet Youth Tutoring will be offered virtually in four different subject areas:
- English/Social Studies
- Essay/Written Assignments
You will have the ability to indicate the areas where your child needs the most focus during their sessions on the registration form.
Learn more about the Carondelet Youth Tutors
Each Carondelet Youth Tutor is a current Sophomore, Junior, or Senior that has excelled academically since enrolling in Carondelet. The majority of our tutors are also current members of the California Scholarship Federation or National Honor Society. More than half of the students participating in this program have previous tutoring experience and represent a variety of backgrounds from several cities across the Bay Area.
Is this really a free service? What’s the catch?
As with all initiatives launched by Carondelet, we strive to demonstrate the ideals of the Sisters of St. Joseph who have always focused on ‘service to thy dear neighbor’. In these unconventional times, we know there is a need for additional support for students who are learning in a virtual or hybrid model but may feel disconnected from their traditional educational environment. Our goal is to offer a top-notch service that gives back to our community through enrichment, encouragement, and equity in this year of constant change for families without the need for added fees.
Are there plans to offer in-person tutoring?
We would love the chance to connect with your child in-person. At this time, county guidelines do not permit in-person meetings on-campus for non-Carondelet students. We will continue to explore this option and will revisit the idea of in-person tutoring at our Winton Drive Campus in Spring 2021 if guidelines allow for this possibility.
How do I register?
Registration will open in mid-October. If you would like to be notified once our registration page is live, please complete this short Interest Form. This allows us to learn more about your child’s needs and schedule. You will receive an email notification once the page is live so you can reserve your slot(s) for the remainder of the Fall Semester. Registration for Spring sessions will open in early December.
