Volunteer tutoring program in collaboration with several non-profit organizations in Quebec
“Teach it forward” is a volunteer program of individualized teaching, targeting the vulnerable clientele of our public schools. It stems from the passion and generosity of several accredited teachers and tutors who offer 10 hours of tutoring services or homework support to students requiring additional assistance. This extra support allows at-risk students to synthesize what they have already learned, build on this knowledge and further progress in their learning. It is also intended for new immigrants who need some help to master the subtleties of the English language, and improve their speaking, writing and reading abilities. It is good way to increase their motivation to help them persevere in their schooling.
Our mission is to prevent the negative effects of dropping out. We want to offer to students who are struggling the opportunity to spend some quality time with a tutor with whom they will establish a bond of trust and respect. A good teacher-student relationship has been shown to increase the level of school motivation and to help develop a positive attitude toward education. It also contributes to integrating education in the core values of the child.
The tutors of the “Teach It Forward” program, who are certified by SOSteacher, are dedicated in their desire to offer academic support tailored to the needs of students, at the time and place agreed upon by the parents or the school management.
