After School Tutoring
In our After-School Tutoring Program, students meet with tutors for 2.5 hours after school, one evening each week for 15 weeks in the fall and spring semesters. Parents are expected to be available to tutor one child. If more than one of your children is enrolled in the program or you cannot serve as a tutor to your child, you will need to hire a tutor, which costs an additional $30 per night ($450 per semester). To determine whether the After-School Tutoring Program will benefit a child, we require that a child and his or her guardian participate in an evaluation process. Evaluations are held each month. For more information or to schedule an evaluation, please call 606-785-4044 or email us.
A Program Based in Your County
The After-School Tutoring Program is currently operating in Floyd, Knott, Laurel, Perry, and Pike Counties. In this program, parents or guardians of children participating in the program are trained by Hindman Settlement School to serve as tutors. While there is a $100 tuition fee for each semester of the After-School Program, the tutor training workshop is entirely free.
Starting a Program in Your County
If your county does not currently have an After-School Tutoring Program available, but you are interested in starting one, we’d love to help. It typically requires at least eight students and their parents to get a program going. Once you’ve gotten a group established, we will schedule training and assist you with logistics, and arrange for you to observe in a county that already has a program. Keep in mind that the most successful programs depend heavily on committed volunteers and a volunteer coordinator.
