How It Works
For over 52 years, Tutoring Plus has served youth in grades 4-12 to strengthen their academic performance and support their social and personal development. Tutoring Plus offers free enriching and individualized tutoring/mentoring and enrichment programs for youth in Cambridge.
Through our one-on-one programming, youth receive free individualized support from exceptional volunteers. Our enrichment programs in both specific academic STEAM subjects and our gender-specific programs engage youth in hands-on, project-based learning and discussions.
Connections at Tutoring Plus start with the application process. Prospective students and their families complete an in-depth application to help match them with the right volunteer who can mentor and support them. Tutoring Plus volunteers receive comprehensive training annually.

Step 3 – T+ matching process
Once the registration process is complete, we carefully match youth with a trained volunteer tutor/mentor. We’ll provide volunteers with information about your child’s academic strengths and weaknesses, learning style, and personality to help set the stage for a personalized and effective learning environment.
Step 4 – T+ helps your child succeed
Tutoring Plus is not just about homework. We use after-school time to forge meaningful relationships between students, volunteers, and staff that will inspire academic and personal growth. To help your child reach their goals, we need your cooperation and participation. We want your experience at Tutoring Plus to be rewarding for everyone, and we know that together we will succeed!
