Think back to your schooling. Do you remember a class or subject where the time in class never seemed to be enough for you to truly grasp the concepts? I do!
My senior year in high school, I chose to take AP calculus. I would come home each day with homework in a subject that I didn't understand and with questions that my parents couldn't answer. I felt so helpless! Thankfully for me, they were able to hire a tutor one night a week to help me grasp concepts that I couldn't in class.
Unfortunately, many K-12 Tennessee students and families don't have the luxury of hiring a private tutor due to tutoring's high costs or a lack of transportation, so instead of receiving vital support, these students often fall behind. You can help!
AS LITTLE AS $10 CAN PROVIDE A SESSION OF TUTORING FOR A STRUGGLING STUDENT.
Your support ensures that K-12 Tennessee students and their parents have access to patient, caring, certified or retired teachers who will work with them until comprehension blossoms. Students who receive this quality support are able to return to school more prepared and confident in their skills.
A 7th grader last year told a Homework Hotline tutor, "Your teachers give me courage" and multiple students thank our teachers every year for their support. Families are also grateful we exist. One mother this year said, "This is a blessing. I can't work right now because I broke my leg, and tutoring is so expensive. I'm so glad this service exists."
Your financial support helps make these stories happen! Thank you!
