For over 50 years, Tutoring Plus has been providing academic support to Cambridge students. In 1964, a group of Cambridge mothers seeking more academic support for their children tapped into a new source – MIT student tutors. Its evolution from a community-driven effort initiated by parents and MIT students to a professional organization could not have been achieved without the support of volunteers and community partnerships.
Today, we operate five 1:1 tutoring centers and four project-based enrichment programs focused on math, science, engineering and girls’ media literacy for students in grades 4 through 12. By providing a structured environment for volunteers and a highly personalized approach to working with students, Tutoring Plus currently supports over 210 students and 170 tutors and serves as a critical resource for our students and families (2015).
Mission: To support and encourage the academic, personal, and social growth of children and youth in Cambridge, Massachusetts with the help of volunteers and community partners.
Address: 225 Windsor Street, Cambridge, MA, United States
