Saturday Morning Tutor

As a tutor, you will interact with Breakthrough Cincinnati middle school students on Saturday mornings at the Oakley, Walnut Hills, and Norwood public libraries. Students bring homework to work on or a list of subjects they need help reviewing. You will work with small groups or individual students for an hour and a half, helping prepare Breakthrough students for success at college-prep high schools.

How you help The program provides 6th through 9th grade students the opportunity to challenge themselves academically and personally. These​ ​students​ go through a rigorous selection process based on academic merit, educational goals, and risk factors.​ Over the course of 4 years, student learning is guided by college-age Teaching Fellows, who are gaining the practical experience to succeed as future teachers and leaders. These relationships form the foundation of the unique "student-teaching-students" approach. It is that approach that fostered the inspired learning environment that leads to results. Students attending Breakthrough Cincinnati typically graduate on time from high school; 88% did in 2017, and enroll in college; 100% did in 2017.
About us Breakthrough Cincinnati provides highly motivated middle and high school students from underserved/underrepresented communities with the educational experiences and resources that will enable them to be successful in high school, graduate from high school on time and enroll in college. Over 200 motivated, yet vulnerable, students participate in the program each summer and during school-year experiences.
